[Ep #12] Take Control of Your Financial Future

Take Control of Your Financial Future

According to ASIC a comfortable income for a couple is $59,971 and a modest income is $34,855. Now, without taking into consideration the age pension, you would need $1.2M if you wanted to have a comfortable lifestyle when you retired (or not including the aged pension $720,000 for a modest lifestyle), which assmes a life span until the age 85.

Joining me today is Katie McDonald.

On today’s show, Katie answer the questions:

  • Do you really need $1 million to retire?
  • If so, how do you get there?
  • The importance of getting good advice and what does good advice look like?

We pay the bills, we balance the family cash flow, we are good at spotting bargains – We can take control of our financial future.  – Katie McDonald
