Helping Small Business Owners Produce Freedom So They Can Enjoy an Abundant Life and Live Their Passion & Purpose!

It’s been a crazy week with bank failures and rumors of bank failures, the FED raising interest rates another 25bps, but I am going to let your normal news sources handle that for a bit and discuss something totally different.
My family just got back from a Spring Break vacation in Mexico. We went with a few other friends and their kids and had an absolute blast.
Although it is a lot of work to travel with five kids, my wife and I feel that it is worth the time, money and effort for a few key reasons.
It creates positive memories, extra time for bonding and deepens relationships.
Allows our kids to see and experience different cultures and ways of life. In addition, try new foods and experiences.
It reinforces how blessed we are to live in America even with all the problems that we are facing.
Anytime we can spend time with loved ones like this we call those enriching experiences.
(Here’s a quick pic of one of my sons thoroughly enjoying the dolphins propelling him on a boogie board)
So what are some of your own traditions and enriching experiences?
Have you thought to incorporate these things into your retirement cash flow planning?
One of our friends that came with us to Mexico was telling us about family friend of theirs, (who is in her 90’s by the way) takes all their kids and grandkids on a vacation one year and then just an adult kids on trip the following year and how they have been able to see so many parts of the world doing this. Whether it is an African Safari or a European Cruise they have created a culture of enriching experiences to drive their family roots deep.
So travel might not be your thing but what is “your thing” that you want to continue to experience throughout your retirement? Let’s just plan for it to make sure you have the resources to keep those things going.
I really am curious so if you would humor me, please email me back and let me know what “your thing” is.
