I know, we seem to talk a lot about it but the truth is that when it comes to money there is one single question we hear over and over again. Do I have enough to retire? Of for someone younger, will I have enough to retire? What if I don’t have enough to retire. Well sticking your head in the sand is not the answer. Not only does it assure you will not get where you want to be, the stress along the way of not knowing is worse.

If you decide you want to claim you financial power, you'll need to do some personal calculations based on when you want to retire, and how much you want to spend while in retirement. Keep in mind that any type of directional analysis is better than none so don’t sweat the detail.
