Six things to Know for a Confident Retirement 1. KNOW WHERE YOU ARE.It is critically important to know where you are on the timeline of retirement. Have you already retired but hesitant to admit it, in the warm up lane, or miles away from the porch and rocking chair?2. KNOW THAT SOMEONE ELSE KNOWS WHERE IT ALL IS.You don't want the financial details of your life to go to the grave with you. Since you can’t take it with you, at least let someone know where the treasure map is.3. KNOW THAT YOU WILL NOT RUN OUT OF MONEY.It is no surprise to know that the greatest fear for most retirees is that they will run out of money. Plan your assets and your spending so that dying broke will not happen, as it only works if you die on schedule.4. KNOW YOUR CASH FLOW.Knowing your income and outflow is even more important during retirement than it ever was while you were working. Be a grown-up and live on a budget.5. KNOW NOT TO STOP WORKING, EVEN IF YOU DON’T GET PAID.It has been said that service is the rent we pay for living on Earth, and people that are helping others are happier people.6. KNOW THAT THOSE YOU CARE ABOUT WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF.If you don’t already get this one, then I can’t explain it to you.
