What is Your Number? (How to Die with Zero) [E103]

In this week’s episode of "Business by the Numbers," Hunt unpacks the key lessons from Bill Perkins' "Die With Zero." The discussion is not just about the book, but also about how to smartly plan your finances and life. He also talks about seeing retirement as more than just a financial goal. It's a chance to do what you love and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

  • Rethinking Retirement Worries: We challenge the common fear of not having enough money in retirement. Using real-life examples, we show why this fear might be bigger in our heads than in reality.
  • Time vs. Money: A big part of the talk is about understanding the true value of your time. It's about how you should see your time as money, especially when planning for the future.
  • Knowing Your "Number": We stress the importance of figuring out how much money you actually need to enjoy life without financial stress. This includes a look at how to plan, save, and invest wisely.
  • Spending Smarter in Retirement: We discuss why people often end up saving more than they need and how spending tends to go down as you get older.
