Be comfortable being uncomfortable.
This is a mindset Chris and I have always shared. I learned this lesson long ago when I took my first steps to start my own business several years before we established Hunt Country Wealth Management.
It’s a difficult thing to leave the comfort of a 9-to-5 job, but I knew I wanted the freedom to create my own future. From time to time on especially hard days, Chris and I remind each other of this. What we are really telling each other is that we don’t want to trade the opportunity to make a larger impact on the world for the comfort of playing it safe. Playing it safe is often an illusion, anyway.
Retirement is a huge life transition. It’s normal to feel the fear of the unknown. But keep in mind that fear creates an impulse to seek security and play it small. That impulse may lead to making poor financial decisions. Don’t be afraid to live a big life (whatever that means for you). With our financial plan behind you, there’s no need to make rationalizations for settling.
People tend to gravitate toward people with similar values. I think that’s why we have always enjoyed working with clients who embrace a sense of adventure and see their future in retirement as a fun and exciting time.
We love helping people take those steps. Life is an adventure, so go and live it!
May your retirement be the best days of your life.
Let’s help you navigate the road ahead…
We believe retirement should free you. It all starts with a plan.
