How prepared are you for your retirement? As you get closer to retirement, it is important that you think about how things are going to pan out for you during that period.  

In this episode of the Secure Your Retirement podcast, we have Jay and Maureen Hartford to give a perspective on how to approach the retirement period. They describe what they did right and what they didn’t, and how being agile with their plan served them.

Listen in to learn the importance of developing relationships and connections that you will continue interacting with after you retire.

·      Think of where you want to live and the lifestyle you want to live.

·      Be agile and flexible to any possible changes that might happen before/during your retirement period.

·      Why they decided to settle in Raleigh and not any other city in the country.
