Why Listen to a Podcast When You Can Get the Right Retirement Information on Your Own?

It used to be that, when people needed information for planning their retirement, they would attend an financial planning seminar. They would register in advance, possibly take time off of work, and go sit with a group of other people and listen to a presentation.
Alternately, if they wanted to find information on their own without giving up a large chunk of their time to sit in a room with others, they would look for the right book to help them plan to retire with financial security. Instead of attending a seminar, they would spend their time at the library or a bookstore looking for just the right book - one that gave them clear, easy to understand answers to their questions while also helping to get them going in the right direction.
However, as time has continued to pass, those same people who turned to seminars began to attend them on the web; they signed up to take part in a financial planning webinar. And those who spent time scanning bookshelves searched the web for answers.
Now, there is a new option for those who want information to help them plan to retire: podcasts. A podcast - including those focused on helping people plan to retire - is a sort of internet radio broadcast that is recorded and available when it is convenient for you to listen.
Much like a webinar or an audio book, a podcast can provide you with information that will help you plan your financial security for when you retire. However, much like seminars, books, webinars and audio books, a podcast will only provide you with general information.
The specific goals that you have for when you retire may not be addressed in a podcast. Your concerns about taking too much of a risk that goes along with a particular investment strategy may not be addressed. And, most importantly, the ability to analyze your current investment strategy to see whether or not it will enable you to reach your goals will not be addressed during retirement podcast.
To ensure that you will have the income that you need after you retire, it is important to learn more about your savings and investments. While listening to a podcast about retirement planning could provide you with information that could help your planning, there are better ways of addressing your own situation.
One of those ways is to access Bob's free retirement calculator that is available by clicking the red button at the bottom of this page. With it, you will be able to enter simple information about your current savings and investment accounts to see how they have performed over time. Similarly, you will be able to evaluate the investments you've made to see how they have performed - both individually and in combination.
More importantly, you will be able to see how your savings and investment accounts are projected to perform over the next twenty five years; projections that take into consideration the way that changing interest rates and inflation affect the income that will be available to you once you have retired.
Maybe you will like what you see, maybe you won't. Either way you will be able to use the retirement calculator to determine what changes you can make to your retirement strategies that will ensure the financial security of your retirement. Without risk, you will be able to see how your investments would be affected by these changes.
With the retirement calculator, you will develop confidence in your ability to save and invest in your future - something that you may or may not get by listening to podcasts to help you plan to retire. You will be able to determine a plan that will help you to reach all of your retirement goals.
