Robert & Jessica want retire when each turns 65 years old respectively. Retirement for Robert & Jessica will include frequent international travel. They have not been able to travel as much as they hoped due to work so they plan to make up for lost time.


Almost a million and a half dollars sounds like a lot of money to Robert & Jessica, but they really don’t have a clue how much that is in regard to retirement savings. They spent almost $300,000 last year and their basic math tells them at that rate they have less than five years of retirement savings. They had a conversation with another couple about their finances and Robert & Jessica learned they have more than double what their friends have saved. Their friends insist that they have enough saved to retire. Neither Robert nor Jessica have conviction in their retirement plan, or lack there of, and want to take steps now to ensure their financial freedom while they still have a good income base.
