Hello friends welcome to
yadnya investment academy. Today is friday. So today we will talk about
a financial planning topic. Today's topic is Related to retirement planning A very common question of you all that come Obviously this all knows. Retirement is a very important goal. If we talk about financial goals. Mostly it should be. Mostly when i do financial planning So many persons financial
planning i have done personally Then in that comes. Retirement is a very important goal. In which we need a lot of money Nowadays early retirement is occurring. FIRE environment talks are occurring. Financial free retire early In such things When retirement comes in goal One important thing comes How much money do I need? Tell me this much money is enough. Then I can retire. That is a normal question. For this we have already
developed an interesting calculator but that was before pay wall.
Now we have removed that from pay wall because it is very useful calculator. So a retirement calculator we have made. In that with so many
permutations combinations We can get an idea This much retire corps I need. If I reach here then I have done well. I am at least financially free. Now I have to retire. We have to work further or not. Then it is my decision. If above that. Now I am just sharing my screen. Now you will see here You will go on investyadnya website There is a section named
tracker and calculator. In this there is a retirement calculator. Open this Now here we have to fill information. Suppose i am putting age of 30. You have to retire suppose on 60. Suppose we took an
example i have to retire on 60. Life expectancy we mostly suggest We should keep 90, 95, 100.
With a conservative estimate If you keep 100 then it is very
good conservative estimate. If you want to take optimistic If you took practical then it should be 90. Suppose i am putting here 95. Fourth information is our Current annual expense When we do retirement calculation Obvious we took assumptions. One assumption is this the
expense i am doing today Suppose when i retire Then also my expenses should be like this. Means my lifestyle of now remain maintained Neither i increase nor decrease. Suppose I am spending 50k per month today. The expenses that are occurring. After retirement I will do the same expenses. After retirement expenses can reduce. It can be your house if
you are living now on rent. It can be so much rental expense. That can reduce. Now your children's expenses are so much. They will reduce at that time. Sometimes after retirement
Like vacation expenses mostly increases. Sometimes medical expenses increase. Some expenses have increased. Mostly as an advisor If we took a general advice then we say. Keep the same expenses as they are now. Don't do much changes in that. Some increases some decreases. For example if we want
to do a simple calculation Then considering to current expenses Suppose my expense is 50,000 The profile we are taking has
expenses of 50,000 per month. Then it is 6 lakh rupees per year. You have to put today's expenses.
You don't have to put off retirement age. That's all it will insert. Inflation number How much inflation number we have to take? 7% inflation is mostly suggested by India. If you want to be conservative
then you can take 8%. If you want to be aggressive
then you can take 5-6%. Inflation you should calculate by your own. Every year how my expenses are increasing? If you know little bit idea about that These things are increasing
according to my expenses. Edcuation expenses children's fees It increases almost 8-10% every year. Rentals mostly 10%. Landlords mostly increases rent by 10%. My personal inflation is 8, 9-10%. You take according to your. So for calculation here
I am taking 7% inflation. Then return on investment. On the basis of return on investment. How much is my return on investment? Before retirement and after retirement. Now I am retiring at 60. At 30 I am starting investing. How much should I invest for that? How much retirement corpus I will get? The reason I am investing now. On that how much return should I expect? It depends where you are investing.
If you feel I will invest
mostly in equity markets. Retirement oriented because it is very long horizon. I am of 30 years and retiring at 60 years. Horizon is of 30 years. All that I am investing I will invest mostly on equity. Then we can take 11-12%
return on investment All that we will invest now. Or we kept in equity we can take that. If you feel This house is my retirement corpus This will increase according to that. Then on real estate the return
on expectations that remains. Basically there is round inflation of 7-8%.
It depends on you if you have EPFO. That is a very big retirement corpus On EPF we get around 8%. According to that you have invested here. Overall that you are investing Or you are planning This is for retirement
and I am going to invest. What are expected returns on that? Till 60. Pre retirement is retirement on investment. Suppose it is 12%. Whole the money I will put in equity. Then you took 12% return. Then post retirement my corpse will become. How much will it grow? Suppose I retire and I get corpus of 5 crores. Then 5 crore rupees Where will I invest? Again very difficult question If you are of 30 years then in 60 years.
This is very difficult. This is a very big assumption. We have to think mostly at 60 our risk profile decreases. We will not take much equity allocation. Suppose now we have 60-70 equity allocation That time it becomes 20-30% or 40%. I go a little bit on conservative. I say to most of the people Take percentage equal to inflation I get return same as inflation. If I want to take. Then 0.5-1% extra. We took here 8%. Means 8% of post retirement. My corpus will grow 8% after that. Inflation will remain 7%. This is planning according to that. We will discuss these points later. Therefore I am doing all these zero. We inserted these things. What we say? Our retirement age, life expectancy. Our annual expense, inflation. These all are our compulsory fields. If I consider this now. Sorry some value needs to be inserted.
Randomly value we are inserting. So that it can work. If I consider this now. Then I need retirement
corpus of 14.6 crores. If you are of 30 years and you have to do expense of 50k per month. At today's value Today's 50k offcourse will not remain same at the time of retirement. They will increase with inflation. If you have to maintain today lifestyle The 50k expenses you are doing today Same you want to do at 60. After 30 years. This is the value after 30 years. Don't be so afraid. Today 14.5 crore is very much. After 30 years the value of 14.5 That should be arounf 70-80 lakh or 1 crore I am doing guess work. It will not be more than that. Think if I have 1 crore rupees today then I will be able to do for next 35 years.
60-95 years means 35 years 35k per month That to inflation to adjust it. I will get it consistently till 95 in 95 it will become zero. If i invest lumpsum then i can invest 50 lakhs. Considering I don't have anything. If I have 50 lakh rupees I will invest it. For 30 years they will grow by 12%. Expected pre-retirement. Then also my retirement money will be done. Monthly Sip that I have to do That is around 50,000 in this. 48,000 rupees sip i need in this. What is the meaning of step up? I will tell this in next. If you have plan in 30 years 60 years. I have to do all these things. Then you have to do monthly sip of 48,000. To retire for next 30 years. Remember this is a monthly sip. It will not increase. Every year you have to do 48k consistently. Obviously our salary will increase in years Inflation increases salary increases. Now 48,000 will seem so big But after 3-5 years You will not feel big amount. That's what I am saying. In that our step up point comes.
Now you will say I don't have 48,000 to invest. It is a very big amount. From where 48,000 will come. If we are spending 50,000 Then by saving 50,000 we
can invest in retirement corpus. That is not possible. Then in that our second comes step up sip What is the meaning of step up sip? What is annual increase in our income? Can we increase sip every year? I cannot invest 48,000 now but from next year i can increase. If you think my annual increase in income. If inflation is of 7%. With 7% income should increase If we take seven With 7% it is increasing. We considered 7% inflation. Salary is also increasing by 7%. In worst case salary is not changing. With 7% there is increase in salary. Existing investment Do you have any investment now? That you think this is my retirement income From that also it will reduce. Suppose if you have EPFO corpus Suppose of 5 lakh rupees. 5 lakh rupees i inserted here. This is my EPFO of 5 lakh rupees. I will use it for retirement. On that how much return I will get on EPFO? Return are 8% Then we consider we will get 8%.
It is tax free means you will get 8% Suppose i have 5 lakh rupees On that i will get 8% more. Now let's do calculation again. Now since EPFO arrived. From 48 it became 46. Retirement corpus remained same. So now we have to do Sip of 46,000. We can do step up sip of 24,000. We invested 24,000 rupees this month. Every year we increase that by 7%.
From annual increase in income we have to do this annual increase in sip. Today you started sip of 24,300. Next year increased 7% on that. Then again in next year increase 7% on that Compounding 7%. Increase 7% every year Till the age of 60. Then also your goal will be achieved. Then you will have 14.6 crores rupees. Considering these were our rates of returns So it is very very good. You can apply so much
permutations and combinations on this. I have little more money than 24,000. I can do upto 35,000. Can I retire early? Then can I retire at 58? On 58 it will happen at 29,000. I have 35,000. Can I retire at 55? Now your interesting calculation will start No you need 37,000 For retirement at 55. Early retirement you can take at 37,000. If i do 37,000 per year.
I invest in such investments
that give me 12% every year. 7% increase i put minimum. If you think 7% increase is less. Consider growth of salary minimum 8-10%. Why not? Consider 10%. Then in Rs 28,000 you can retire at 55. Retirement corpus also reduced. As early you retire that much less corpus you will want. Value of money comes less. At that time its value will be more. At the age of 55 we need 11.6 crores. How much lump sum funding we need? How much monthly sip
and stepup sip we need? I considered 10% annual increase.
Like this If you can do so many
permutations and combinations. You can plan yourself. When can I become financially free? I think this is very interesting calculator If you like as i am a conservative investor I am not taking 12% from whole equity. Suppose we take 9%. This we keep 10. The rate of return become 9% from 12%. Obviously both the sip's will increase. You can do calculation according to that. Which type of investor is I am? If you think here is also 9
then it will change again. These things you can do so many permutations and combinations
based on your profile. You will get so much support and understand If I invest this much money For this much time Then I can go towards a better retirement.
This is how you should work on these things. You can plan early retirement. You want to spend so much or not. 50,000 will not be sufficient. I want to increase my lifestyle. Now I am spending 50,000. But at that time I want to spend 75,000. Acc to that by using
permutation and combination What are my savings now? I can plan such investments or not. Then in those things you will get

hi i'm clark and today i'd like to talk to you about money goals and little everyday choices that can help you lead a successful life for those of you that aren't familiar with our channel we normally do videos on how to sail and uh wonderful places that we go to my wife and i sail a 50 year old sailboat we travel all over the world this video is going to be a little different this is a little more personal this is me kind of telling you my story of how i was able to retire young and lead this life i hope it could be inspirational to you even from a very young age i have wanted to live an intentional life i didn't necessarily have the name for it back then but i wanted to live honorably i wanted to live on my own terms i wanted to live in a way that was right but not in a way where i was following the herd not in the way that i was doing what other people wanted me to do lately there seems to be a trend for people to live a little more frugally a little lighter on the world uh you see that with tiny house people my wife used to do that you see that with us cruisers we live out here uh quite lightly um it's and i see that with a group that's referring to their idea as fire f-i-r-e stands for financial independence and retire early it's kind of all the same thing make some money don't spend everything you make don't live paycheck to paycheck so that you can be free and not live a life where you're just accumulating stuff to to impress others or impress yourself the minimalists are kind of doing the same thing though maybe they're not working so hard to retire young but they're still kind of trying to spend less and not accumulate stuff as their personal badge i've been living this way for a very long time if you're contemplating a lifestyle change in this direction i thought it might be helpful to see what happens when you've done this for like 30 years let's start out with my story i grew up in a farming town in northern new york state my dad was a barber my mom was a secretary when i was first born and became a stay-at-home mom later on she got a degree and became a school nurse we didn't have a huge amount of money we had enough though we always had food we always had shelter we never had worries but we just didn't have enough to have that new fancy car and trendy clothes and it just wasn't our thing to try to keep up with the joneses i'm really glad i was raised that way after i finished college i found a job locally in northern new york it wasn't a great job it's not a really industrial or technological part of the world and i do tech and also it was the middle of the recession in the 80s this recession was bad the unemployment numbers were worse than the 2007 recession that well wiki calls the great recession so it was the job i could find i um was a little bored with the job and it didn't pay very well because that job was so boring um i started uh consulting during the day i started meeting with local businesses and uh showing them how to use a pc pcs had just come out i mean they were the first ones uh but right along with the first pcs were the first clones so i would show them they could save a lot of money by buying a clone i'll help them buy them i would write custom software for them sometimes sometimes i just show them how to use word processors but anyway um it taught me that i could be a consultant basically i didn't have to necessarily work for a company with a paycheck i did a little better i bought a sailboat i bought a 25-foot sailboat and i i never owned a sailboat before i'd only been sailing like twice in my life at that point i worked at a kids camp and found some sailboats and ended up teaching sailing that was the first time i ever did it but sailing really intrigued me so i bought this boat and i'm sailing it around lake ontario and one day i found myself out at some little island on lake ontario alone uh no friends came that day and i'm reading a magazine cruising world i think it was and it had an article on the economics of well living the lifestyle i have now and i realized it's achievable it you know it's it's a big deal but it's not something that can't be done i knew i was gonna have to work hard i knew i was gonna have to take some risks but i became kind of a goal for me to try to retire young and get out and see the world on these terms it was it was really important that article changed my life so pretty short order after that um i found a contracting gig in austin texas i helped ibm develop os2 i quit my day job big risk there because i was just hired to come and do if they didn't like me they would kick me out but there was more money and it was a much more interesting project that one went well um i started doing some other projects and next thing you know my client list was ibm boeing starbucks uh a t a bunch of other ones you haven't heard of but doing interesting things i was successful by basically anybody's standard and i didn't quite live like other people who were doing what i was doing i was still a barber son i really didn't have this concept that money was happiness that stuff was happiness for me money was uh freedom chips a way to to not have to work later i had this saying that if you make more than you spend you're rich and if you spend more than you make you're poor and the scale of it doesn't matter this is before donald trump was president or anything like that he was like my poster child of how not to live to be in bankruptcy every five years you know it didn't matter if he was doing it at the million dollar level as far as i was concerned he was poor i tried to be rich so i lived on the rich side of that i put money away and i invested it and i set myself up to be able to retire young but not to say i didn't spend anything when i was 27 i sold my 25-foot boat and i bought a larger one i bought the one that i'm well sitting in right now uh i spent 55 thousand dollars on her uh she's um she can cross oceans she is a very sound hull but she was in bad shape so i had to tear her down and build her back up it took about eight or ten years of work while i was working and during those eight or ten years i did a lot of work on myself too i prepared myself for this long voyage one advantage of buying a boat as your well obsession or hobby is it can be home so i did save some money uh by not having an apartment anymore i just moved right aboard the boat of course the boat and its slip cost what much more than the apartment but i was gonna have the boat anyway so i tried to save money any way i could in 2000 i was 36 years old and i realized i had enough not enough in frustration i loved my job but i had enough money put away i had enough to achieve my dreams and i wasn't going to just keep chasing something uh so the right thing for me to do at the time was to close down my corporation right at the height of my income and take off sailing it was a wonderful time to be an engineer there was the tech boom going on it was really great closed it all down got in my boat and went south literally within months the tech boom bubble crashed the market dove i lost so much money in the market but since i had this minimalist mindset and since i really was living on very little money before when i was saving i just tightened my belt stayed at this lower income level as it were and wrote it through since i didn't spend spend my principal it came back it took a while but it came back the point is i was able to live on very little and actually out sailing was easier because there weren't commercials in my face saying buy this be happy buy this be happy i had a beautiful dive to go down and look at fish that costs nothing over the next 20 years i sailed this boat twenty thousand ocean miles i visited fourteen percent of the world's countries i had some amazing adventures uh because of the decisions i made in my i've been able to live a life sailing i've been able to visit the warm parts of the world get close and personal and meet other cultures hang out with some really cool people now in 55 um i've got friends who are still working and hoping to retire i've got friends that didn't make it to retire they're dead they're never going to have these adventures i'm so glad that i made those decisions in my 20s and i stuck with them in my 30s and 40s and it's given me such such a wonderful life i want to encourage you regardless of your age to live your best life come up with a plan and stick with the plan i can tell you that little everyday choices can make a huge difference in adding up to a wonderful life how do you do this where do you start i started with something that i call the economy of enough the economy of enough boils down to two things number one understand your goals what makes you happy what will make you happy you're thinking about your whole life here for me it was having financial independence and having the freedom to go off sailing for you it's going to be something else but decide what that is you have to choose something that's actually achievable if it's not achievable you're never going to get there and you have to find it exciting if it doesn't excite you there's no sense living a life without passion choose wisely you only get to make this choice once it's just not going to be time to restart once you have an achievable exciting goal that's your definition of enough it's enough to make you happy it's enough to give your life meaning and it's enough to keep you going most importantly it's a point that you can reach if you don't have a definition of enough you're cursed to chase more and more is just never achievable without that definition of enough knowing and knowing that you've succeeded to get to it a million isn't enough 10 million isn't enough the whole world wouldn't be enough you need to have your own definition of enough to find happiness number two commit to making daily choices that will let you get to your goal this is how you're going to use a little of that chasing more to get to you're enough if your life goal requires any money at all and let's face it they all do you're going to need some money achieving my goal of retiring young and finding financial independence had a lot to do with my saving and spending habits most of what i'm going to talk about now is about saving money how to build wealth through delayed gratification what do i mean by that let me first tell you about marshmallows there's a really well known and simple psychological test that's given to kids and it's like the best indicator of how well they'll do in later life it's called the marshmallow test and how it works is the the researcher gives this little kid a marshmallow and he says you know like this is your marshmallow you can eat it you can do whatever you want but if you don't eat it and i'm gonna leave the room for a bit and if you don't eat it when i come back if you still have the marshmallow i'm gonna give you another marshmallow now this is a really cool test you can just google it look it up on youtube and it's fun to watch because it's little kids trying not to eat marshmallows the point is though that the kids that can delay gratification the kids that don't eat their marshmallow are the kids that later on in life can like not have that five dollar starbucks coffee because they can know five extra bucks in my schwab account it's gonna mean like ten thousand dollars when i need it it's just the way you should live life it's so telling of a test if i had kids i'd give the kids the test and i'd use it as a training thing i'd just give them the test occasionally until they got it until they realized hey if i don't eat the marshmallow i get two marshmallows i think it would train a kid later in life i think in our society most people eat their marshmallows right away and i'm gonna teach you or tell you how i anyway got to financial success by saving marshmallows by putting off these instant gratification purchases and saving the money for when i can do really cool stuff with it and have freedom let's talk about the way to save up some marshmallows number one we're going to talk about work when it comes to work choose a profession that you're good at but choose a profession that is something people want and choose something that pays well many minimalists think that money just doesn't matter and they go into jobs that just don't pay well it's important to actually make money if you're going to follow this model while you're young in a small amount of time or you're not going to be able to retire young so again find something that people need do it really well and demand a fair payment for your efforts the world basically doesn't need another waiter what we need is a welder there's always a demand for welders you put six months into learning to weld and you're gonna get paid well bottom line understand the economy of what's valued out there and pursue a career that will let you maximize your income early the next topic is savings you need a long-term savings account for your retirement and you need a short-term working savings account just to live off of whenever money comes in pay yourself take some of that money and put it in that long-term savings once it's in there it's invested it never comes out again until you are retired you don't say there's a big expensive toy i want it i'll use that nope that money is is just locked your short term account is what you need to live on you shouldn't be going paycheck to paycheck you actually should be moving using money in that account that's a little bit old uh if you're spending everything in that account you're doing it wrong you you should have enough left over in this account to actually slip some more into that investment account when you do write that check to yourself because you save some money on not buying a latte or whatever you should feel really good the brain chemistry you make in this is an important part of it you should celebrate when you're able to put more money in that long-term retirement account let's talk about spending you should decide what you can spend based on what you need not based on how much money is in your account you want to avoid lifestyle inflation especially when you're 20s and your 30s your peers are going to start spending a lot of money around you you're not keeping up with them you're living a different life avoid the temptation to spend that extra money to show your success live below your means you've got a longer goal in mind let's talk about skills our society spends a lot of money on convenience basically paying for other people's time part of saving money is learning how to do stuff for yourself for example your car needs an oil change you can pay someone to do it but you can do it yourself and once you've done it you now know how to do it trust me it's trivial brake pads same thing really really easy job you can do it in the driveway someplace once you've learned to do that you've kind of got the confidence to start learning to do other things the more things like this you put in your belt the more things you know how to do yourself the more you can save keep this up and eventually your collection of skills become vast you can take better care of yourself with less money let's talk about food you can save a lot of money by eating cheaply i've done it to get through bad times but it's no way to live life what i'm suggesting here is just don't blow money on food you can save a lot of money by learning to cook yourself it's another skill just like your car and it'll save there's a lot of other ways to save money pack your lunch don't order coffee on the way to work don't go to restaurants as much buy a steak at home learn to cook it well when you do go out to a restaurant order water instead of some crazy drink and whatever you do don't buy bottled water if the restaurant's water isn't good enough to drink why are you eating their food it was made with that water emily and i love to throw dinner parties and that's kind of how we get that food being better feeling not going out to a restaurant and paying someone to carry food to our table but making food for friends and sharing it with them and then they reciprocate and we have much more intimate wonderful evenings that way bottom line is you eat three times a day it's a really big opportunity for savings even saving a dollar a meal adds up a lot over the long haul let's talk about housing housing is a really major expense it's probably your largest expense and because of that it's an opportunity to save a lot of money there's a lot of people out there that kind of organize their whole life around owning some big crazy expensive house they spend 30 years paying for it and it owns them because housing is such a big expense it's your biggest opportunity for savings i saved a lot of money by living on my boat i was going to own this boat anyway it was my obsession if i had this boat and tried to keep a house or an apartment that's that's a lot of money so i lived on the boat emily my wife uh she did it a different way she's a tiny house person so she lived in well tiny houses you probably know what those things are if not look them up that's pretty cool she minimized her housing expenses by like literally minimizing her house and she had the advantage of just not having a lot of room to collect stuff much like on the boat it's liberating probably those two approaches aren't right for you but there's going to be something that's right for you some way of savings living a little bit outside of the city can save a lot of money or even living in a in the city but in a less expensive neighborhood without hoa fees or a bunch of joneses to keep up with you can save a lot of money in your housing and if you live outside of the city you avoid the temptation of spending money on nightlife there just won't be as much out there emily and i live on a boat anchored in a beautiful natural bay and that decision has turned our living expense at least the housing part of it to zero bottom line rethink the size location and format of your housing you might be able to save let's talk about cars cars are like the most rapidly depreciating item you'll ever buy it's a big opportunity to save money buy an older car and learn to maintain it yourself buying a brand new car is just throwing money down the drain that doesn't mean you can't drive a nice car i drive what is probably one of the best luxury cars ever made and i bought it at 65 000 miles for four and a half thousand dollars emily has a car that's older than her but it's a really cool car and it's it's fun to drive if you want to know more ask in the comments i won't get into the details on the cars here bottom line don't buy a new car buy something that's like 5 years old but make sure it's a really good quality car nobody wants a 5 or 10 year old kia but an old mercedes or a porsche that's still a really good car and there's a lot of good choices in the middle also learn to maintain your own car we talked about that in the skill section there's a lot of opportunities to save money taking care of your own car if you stick with an older inexpensive car you really don't need to carry collision insurance i mean you can literally just buy another one for what the collision would cost in like two or three years just stick with the minimum liability that your local government requires and you're going to save a lot this list could just go on and on but there's one more thing i want to talk about that's relationships it's very important that your long-term relationships are compatible with your goals if you live with roommates or have a lot of friends that don't share these goals it's going to be difficult to keep frugal likewise if you're in a relationship with someone that finds joy by spending and chasing more it's going to be doomed to failure either you're just not going to make your goal or the relationship's going to suffer emily and i were both married before and probably the biggest problem with both of our relationships were our partners didn't understand enough they were still chasing something they didn't understand when at least we felt we had found enough so bottom line try to find someone to share your life with that understands and agrees with your idea of living frugally it can make life a lot better and of course when you get to the point of deciding whether you want to start a family that makes a huge difference financially you can live frugally with kids but understand whatever you do your costs are going to grow and you're going to lose a lot of control over your life in the u.s it cost a quarter million dollars to raise a kid to adult age and our population is booming the planet is full take that into consideration if you do decide to have children have a small family and by all means give those kids the gift of letting them understand enough and find joy in enough the biggest thing about the concept of enough is this one day if you do everything right and you meet your goal you'll be there realize when you're there stop just don't keep striving for things and position when you've got enough you've got enough now it's time to live for yourself this sounds trivial this sounds like duh you know but it isn't um i know the stress i went through when i retired i couldn't identify because it seems like everything was perfect but society had raised me to keep wanting to keep striving i stopped and it took a couple years to feel good my wife emily is running a corporation right now she does management consulting she's not going to be doing that forever and she's starting to think about shutting it down and she knows and she also knows because i've told her it's going to be stressful uh prepare for that achieving is addictive you're going to want to continue to try for more it's like natural probably the human condition but when you're there take some time to [Music] to live for yourself and you can always go back to work you just really deserve to try the other way for a while once you've achieved it let it feel good everyone should have their own philosophy if my concept of enough rings true with you use it it's yours if not try to find something else but leave that leave that intentional life have intention and how you want to live i hope sharing my experience has allowed you to feel maybe a little less alone and more inspired to lead your own better life thanks so much for watching if you enjoyed this video please hit the like button share it

there are a great deal of complex strategies available when it comes to withdrawing your cash in retired life we'' ve currently looked at some of them such as the Guyton clinger rule however not all techniques need to be that complicated to function well sometimes the most basic method is the most great of all and today that'' s what we'' re gon na speak about we ' re gon na be speaking about 2 of the most basic retirement investing strategies available we ' re gon na discuss their benefits and drawbacks along with'who need to be using them let ' s begin however prior to we start make sure to LIKE this video clip if you haven ' t already as it truly does help out the channel a lot as well as subscribe with notices on for more cash related video clips similar to this one each and every single week so the strategies that we'' re gon na be covering today are very similar to each other because they are both called repaired withdrawal strategies they are the set buck withdrawal technique and the set percentage withdrawal method let'' s begin with the simpler of both the fixed dollar withdrawal technique the fixed dollar withdrawal method is precisely what it seems like you begin by withdrawing a particular dollar amount from your savings each and every single month as well as maintain that quantity continuous throughout your entire retirement it essentially doesn'' t obtain any kind of simpler than that state if John were surviving this strategy in retirement he has a 1 million dollar nest egg and also wants to be able to reside on $40,000 a year he withdraws $40,000 in that first year of retirement does the same point in the 2nd and so on etc to put it simply there are no adjustments for rising cost of living utilizing this method to examine this technique let'' s take a look at the 4 factors of retirement which for those that are new to this network our income threat security as well as getting power income gauges just how much money is can be found in the door monthly along with when that money is being available in its measured in this manner because not all retirement investing techniques are systematic as well as straight with their earnings development as well as none people understand how long we'' re gon na be in retired life so we have a tendency to place more of a concern in having abnormally high revenue years in the earliest section of our retirements because we don'' t recognize if we ' ll ever reach the later sections threat is the chance of outliving your money stability is rated by exactly how typically you experienced anything that would be considered an unfavorable change in your revenue from one year to another this could be available in the form of a freeze on the growth of your revenue or simply a decrease in your earnings from near to the following and also acquiring power is specified like it always is it'' s a measure of just how much your cash can in fact obtain you at any given time as well as is mainly tied to rising cost of living the set dollar approach is normally taken into consideration to be a little stronger on revenue and threat in comparison to various other popular methods like the 4% guideline however it does experience in terms of stability and also buying power the reason for this is straightforward as long as your initial withdrawals aren'' t too expensive you ' re relatively not likely to outlive your money using this strategy and you might in fact have the ability to live at a greater requirement of living a minimum of at first than you would certainly have in other comparable approaches like the 4% policy in reality going all the method back to 1950 if John had actually had that one million dollar nest egg invested in something like the S&P 500 he would certainly not in fact outlive his cash during any type of 20 30 40 or half a century retirement as long as he would certainly real no even more than fifty four thousand bucks a year or forty five hundred a month so also points like the real estate dilemma in dot-com collision didn'' t reason him to lack money so this does provide John a higher requirement of living at first than the 4% guideline would have due to the fact that of course with a 1 million dollar nest egg the 4% policy would just enable him to draw $40,000 a year to survive though ultimately like I stated the rising cost of living effect would certainly capture up with him making use of the fixed dollar method which'' s where this method does often tend to fall short it'' s not indicated for longer retired lives because while John might be able to deal with surviving $54,000 a year particularly if he'' s retiring financial obligation totally free with a paid off home it comes to be progressively challenging to do that as the years take place due to the inflation effect historically talking rising cost of living has averaged somewhere between 2 as well as 3% annually in the USA if we think that our individual average rising cost of living rate in retired life is nearer the top of that range well at 3 percent annually after that John'' s$ 54,000 a year revenue will get him the matching of what $40,000 would certainly get him today in simply 10 years time in 20 years his money would just have the ability to acquire him regarding what twenty nine thousand nine hundred dollars would certainly get him today as well as his cash would deserve the equivalent of twenty two thousand two hundred and also fifty bucks sixteen thousand five hundred and also fifty bucks and twelve thousand three dollars a year in 30 40 as well as 50 years respectively just due to the fact that of the impact of inflation so simply for a minute allow'' s visualize that John had actually decided to adhere to the economically independent retire early activity but rather than utilizing the 4% guideline which helps to shield your purchasing power over longer term retirements like those in the fire neighborhood are going for John makes a decision to use the set dollar withdrawal technique assuming every little thing else stayed the same John would certainly retire at the age of 30 with a $54,000 a year income as well as a 1 million buck nest egg once again at the age of 30 that would be perfectly great for him nevertheless the average life span for people residing in the u.s.Is regarding 79 years old since 2019 and it'' s feasible that that number will remain to expand as innovation as well as medicine continues to advance so presuming he doesn'' t die young it isn ' t out of the inquiry that he would have a close to 50-year retirement and also be surviving on the equivalent of concerning $1,000 a month when he'' s maturing and his medical expenses go to their highest possible as you can imagine that wouldn'' t be an ideal circumstance for John as well as that ' s why this strategy usually isn ' t the best suggestion for longer term retirements but for the appropriate individual in regards to the 4 aspects of retirement the fixed dollar method is above average and earnings and risk but second-rate instability and also acquiring power in contrast to the 4% rule the fixed portion technique works really in a similar way to the fixed dollar method other than that you'' re taking out a certain portion of your savings annually instead of a specific dollar value this strategy also doesn'' t readjust for rising cost of living yet it does at the very least adjust with the worth of your portfolio as well as depending upon what you'' re bought and also what preliminary portions you pick this method may exercise all right state John simply wanted to withdraw a 4% of his investments annually in retired life given that the value of his investments were $1,000,000 when he retired he would certainly withdraw $40,000 in his first year that would leave him with nine hundred and sixty thousand bucks left over if his investments went up by 10 percent that year the value of his profile would certainly be someplace in the community of a million as well as fifty 6 thousand dollars at the begin of his 2nd year of retirement since he'' s taking out 4 percent of that he would certainly survive on forty two thousand 2 hundred and forty bucks because second year thinking inflation was three percent during that very first year of his retired life his buying power would have really gone up if he had actually simply changed his withdrawals for rising cost of living like he would certainly have if he were utilizing the real 4% rule he would have taken out 40 1200 dollars in his second year or concerning a thousand and $40 much less than he did using the set percent withdrawal technique in this situation the disadvantage that I'' m sure a great deal of you currently see is that the opposite can additionally occur claim that the list below year john'' s investments dropped by 20% bringing the worth of his savings down to about eight hundred as well as eleven thousand bucks and forcing him to withdraw thirty 2 thousand 4 hundred and forty bucks in the 3rd year of his retired life that would certainly be considerably much less than the forty two thousand four hundred dollars that John would certainly have taken out in that 3rd year making use of the actual four percent policy so as you can see relying on the circumstance security is something that this strategy can have a very low score in offered that the worth of a savings particularly if it'' s bought something like stocks can expand or shrink by 20 30 and even 40 percent from one year to the next the brilliant side naturally is that you have an extremely low danger of lacking cash in theory it'' s actually no if you'' re able to follow this strategy to a tee and also I especially say theoretically since like numerous points it'' s just gon na hold true as much as a certain factor if we take it to a sensible extreme we can break this down claim if John had $10,000 in his savings as well as he intended to survive on half of that nest egg for the following 5 years theoretically he'' d be'great as well as he ' d never ever lack cash since he'' d always be withdrawing fifty percent of whatever that savings is yet the amount of of us are gon na be able to survive on 5 thousand dollars a year that would be what he'' d be taking out that initial year as well as naturally it would be even much less the 2nd year if his financial investments stayed flat his 2nd years withdrawals would certainly be half of five thousand dollars or twenty five hundred bucks and also I put on'' t recognize lots of individuals that are residing on two hundred bucks a month yet the factor is if you'' re happy to take the hit to the stability of your income in retired life you can typically securely squeeze out a bit even more than four percent of your nest egg each year in a regular retired life using this strategy you just need to be prepared to see the ordinary raw dollar revenue that you obtain shrink as you go additionally right into your retired life to illustrate this allow'' s say that John took out 10% of his savings every year assuming he had that a person million-dollar nest egg he would certainly begin with a six-figure revenue nevertheless if he finished up living longer than he prepared on he might eventually find himself living on what would just be generously referred to as a small allocate instance in the simulations I ran covering the numerous retired life sizes beginning with 1950 forward presuming John had invested in the S&P 500 he would certainly have had a mean month-to-month earnings of about $6,500 a month in 20 as well as thirty years retirements which when changing for inflation would certainly be around $3,600 a month in twenty years scenarios and also twenty seven hundred bucks a month in thirty-year situations however that number did reduce a great deal as the retired lives obtained much longer for instance in half a century retired lives his average median monthly income had to do with forty four hundred bucks which again doesn'' t audio negative yet when we take a look at the final few years worth of his month-to-month withdrawals we find that it'' s really regarding$ 2,300 a month on standard which is substantially less than the six-figure earnings he started with and also of training course that $2,300 a month was what he was actually taking out almost half a century from now as soon as we change for inflation over that time it might not even get John what $1,000 a month would certainly buy him today so comparable to the fixed dollar withdrawals your purchasing power can be taking a substantial hit if the first portions you establish in this method are expensive in summation the fixed percentage method ratings fairly well though not elite when it comes to income specifically when used in early retired lives it does wonderful in terms of threat again thinking you'' re not as well aggressive with your first portions however is questionable with stability as well as poor in terms of acquiring power so in the long run who ought to make use of these methods currently I'' ll admit I am directly biased here I think there'' s extremely few people who need to genuinely be using these methods as their key technique it'' s mostly restricted to those with really short anticipated retired lives to make sure that their getting power doesn'' t ended up being also harmed gradually as well as even then ideally just by those that are likewise coming close to that very same retired life with little to no financial obligation since especially with the set percentage approach you'' ll frequently require to be quite versatile with your costs from your year but for those that aren'' t retiring very early as well as will run out than 9 or 10 years that they anticipate to be retired they have little financial debt to mention as well as want something extremely straightforward to comply with when finding out just how much of their money they must take out each year among these techniques might exercise well it offers you some benefits in terms of revenue without considerable boosts in risk but what are your ideas do you concur with my assessment of the method or do you believe that I'' m missing out on something do you believe an additional strategy would work better for people because scenario allow me know in the remarks section below yet that'' ll do it for me today once more if you place'' t already be sure to LIKE the video clip as it truly aids the channel a great deal and if you intend to find out more about different retired life planning approaches make sure to inspect the web links on the display for my videos on just how to safely invest cash in

welcome to fightsidechat my name is i so how do i choose the right area to retire very early let'' s state you have achieved financial independence and also you'' re seeking a brand-new location to retire somewhere in the united states what are several of the considerations you must have prior to you select an area to retire allow me know in the remark section listed below if you want me to make a video regarding retirement locations outside the us choosing a retirement place will also rely on your fire number as well as the kind of fire you attained watch till the end of this video clip and also i'' ll share several of the places we desire to live when we retire early your lean fire could offer you anywhere around 40 000 a year your typical fire number might be anywhere in between 50 and also 90 000 a year your fat fire number should go to least one hundred thousand dollars a year so if you'' re wanting to retire in a high expense of living location like a significant metropolitan city you might need greater easy earnings to retire if you'' re just doing this lean fire after that you could require to select an area that has a lower expense of living the first factor to consider is taxes when you retire early there are currently 9 states without an income tax washington alaska southern dakota texas nevada that'' s where i online florida wyoming new hampshire and tennessee these states more than likely use various other kinds of tax obligations to create profits nevertheless if you'' re relocating to brand-new hampshire currently they do tax your rate of interest as well as dividends so keep that in mind it is phasing out passion as well as returns tax obligation starting in 2024 and also then completely eliminated in 2027 so allow'' s say you narrow down to these states that don'' t need you to pay state revenue tax obligations these states do have higher taxes in other locations to spend for their roads institutions and any other public infrastructure tennessee as an example has a 9.55 sales tax which is the greatest in any type of state and also the washington state imposes a gas tax obligation at 49.4 cents per gallon which is the highest possible rate in the country texas and also new hampshire have one of the highest real estate tax prices but new hampshire doesn'' t have a sales tax obligation as well as texas examinations non-prescription medicines from sales taxes the following consideration is the cost of living an inexpensive living and real estate prices are probably one of the most important factors to consider when you compute just how much you'' re aiming to invest every year in very early retirement current cpi information showing 7.5 percent inflation may frighten you a bit but you can still contrast the price of living index state by state besides housing various other expenses you desire to think about are utilities transport and also grocery stores these are your baseline expenditures when you'' re retired states with the lowest cost living are mississippi oklahoma arkansas kansas and also missouri respectively mentions with the highest expense of living are hawaii washington d.c california oregon and brand-new york taking a look at the states without any state earnings taxes tennessee was number six on the lowest price of living category and also surprisingly alaska is rated number six greatest in the cost of living index i wouldn'' t directly just select the state based upon this index if you intend to stay in a smaller community in tennessee then your expense of living could be a lot less than residing in a major city like memphis or nashville a great deal of senior citizens like to live beyond the major city so buying a residence possibly 45 minutes away from nashville may be less costly than living inside nashville right by the method if you desire our cost-free fire resources see us at firesidechat.com contact talking homes a great deal of early retirees that pick to relocate put on'' t generally purchase homes today unless they recognize the area really well i believe right currently people seem like they'' re mosting likely to shed more money from renting out

population of 2500 people it'' s in the columbia river chasm right throughout the bridge it'' s oregon and also washington state doesn'' t have revenue tax as well as oregon doesn'' t have sales tax however neglect all these taxes momentarily and take an appearance at a few of these photos we went there a number of years back from my friend'' s wedding celebration the view there was absolutely

based upon the weather as well as seasons we additionally wish to be home mortgage totally free as well as potentially rent out the locations in hawaii when we'' re not there this is still years out but that'' s type of our strategy this is why we want to travel to various areas annually so we can remain to explore our alternatives our goal is that fire with 2.8 million dollars but that'' s just our monetary independence number when we'' re prepared to retire our total assets should be more than 3 million deciding where to retire might take years but we have lots of time to travel and also explore brand-new places so with that said claimed i appreciate you enjoying my video don'' t neglect to subscribe as well as i wish to see you in the next video have a great one [Songs] you
Hey guys retired at 40 I'm going on a little road trip today just me and Murph and last week I reached a milestone on my channel and I hit a million views total and 10,000 subscribers in the same week since I've been getting requests for quite a long time about how I retired at 40 and I'm on a long road trip right now I figured what better time to share the story so without further ado here's the retired at 40 story so before I get started I want to say that this is not in any way a brag story in fact I'm definitely not a showy type guy I enjoy very simple things in life and money to me is more of just a vehicle to be able to retire young and have my family live a comfortable and an easy life and to be able to enjoy lots of life experiences and be comfortable in life before I'm old and gray so really the retirement journey began in about 2002 graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in marketing and business and by that point I have met my wife Kelly she had already graduated from school and she was kind of waiting for me and we wanted to move west out of the Midwest to move west see some new territory and get closer to the outdoors so I grabbed my degree ran out the door packed up my 1987 Ranger fully equipped with eight foot hay racks full of all of my personal belongings and we drove to Littleton Colorado and at this point in my life I had $200 in my pocket and Kelly had about the same so being completely naive and basically completely broke but with a degree I was on the search for the best suit and tie job that I could possibly find so I bounced around for a couple months just working some kind of halfway jobs and I quickly realized that I did not want to wear a suit and tie and I wanted nothing to do with the man and working a nine-to-five job well Kelly had found a job in a real estate office working the front desk and she had become friends with a couple of the big-time Realtors there one of which you caught wind that I had some handyman type skills but he made me a deal that if he paid cash for a house and I fixed it up that he would split the profit with us 50/50 and at this point in my life all I saw was dollar signs if I was completely blown away that there was someone that could pay cash for a house this is coming from a guy who had less than $200 in his pocket at this point it was pretty much scraping by I tried to hold back my excitement to him but naturally I said yes please let's do that I was working the graveyard shift at Target stocking shelves I'd worked for 10 hours I would go home grab a little bit of breakfast and I'd head over to the property and work on it for another five or six hours I try and catch a few hours of sleep and then I would rinse and repeat it was at this point in my life that I learned a few different things one you really have to dig deep to reach your goals in life because I was not getting paid by the hour and at this point I didn't know how much money I was gonna make I didn't know if I would make $500 when this was all done or if I was going to make $5,000 when this is all done so I learned that a lot of things that can benefit you financially you have to put in the work upfront without knowing what your final outcome is going to be after about three months which seemed like an eternity of working seven days a week for sometimes 15 sometimes 20 hours a day on this house the house was ready to go on the market and it was all finished it looked great and then before you knew it it's sold and then the house closed and at this point I still didn't know what we were gonna make off it but for me it didn't matter the hard part was done I didn't have any of my own money into it I just had my time basically so the guy we were doing the investment with hands me an envelope and I opened it up and at $8,000 being twenty-two years old and having $8,000 I might as well have hit the lottery and that brings me to my second valuable lesson that I learned and that is being responsible with money so when you have $8,000 and you're 22 years old a lot of people would go buy a new car they'd go buy some flashy things some pretty things but to me I had realized that if I can make $8,000 once I can make $8,000 again and again and again and again so I can either go p*&% the $8,000 away that I had worked my a#* off for or I can take that $8,000 and do exactly what he did but do it myself and potentially make twice or three times as much money so my wife being in a real estate office we became acquainted with quite a few smart people financially smart people we learned a lot about real estate very quickly because we were willing to learn which is my next valuable life lesson is that you never stop learning so we took our $8,000 we put a small down payment on a condo in Littleton because we realized that giving someone else our money was you might as well be throwing it away we wanted to be working towards something and it own something on our own so we took our other four or five thousand dollars and we started our search for a real estate investment that we could do all of our all on her own and get a hundred percent of the profits so after some searching we did find a place we found a small town home it was not in as nice of area as we were living it was smaller it needed lots of work but that takes us to our next light life lesson that we learned and that is to sacrifice for a greater payoff in the future so we had only lived in our condo for a very short time but we realized that if we moved into the real estate investment that we could rent out the place that we are living at and move into the place that we were fixing up that we'd have to be paying a mortgage on anyway we had our first real estate investment and we had our first rental so being 22 years old and owning two properties and carrying two mortgages and at this point I'm still working at Target was a pretty scary proposition in life but all I could see was that $8,000 check they had started to change our lives I also want to point out and kind of give a shout-out to my parents and to my wife's parents because neither one of our parents ever handed us anything in life they always made us work for what we achieved in fact when we move we tried to convince my parents to co-sign on our mortgage for the condo that we bought and they said no way at the time I was very very mad at them and I thought I would never forgive them in hindsight it was one of the best things they've ever done for me because it just made me have that fire in my belly and really just want to work to get what I wanted so back to having two mortgages that was a completely scary thing in my life I was making something like 10 dollars an hour at Target I think Kelly was making $13 an hour at the real estate office she was working at we could barely afford the condo we had but now he had two.
God bless the banks lending money to anyone at that point on the very plus side of that we learned that someone else can pay our mortgage and we're basically getting that money for free and then later we figured out that there are many many many tax benefits and huge benefits of owning a rental property so we quickly learned that trying to pay for materials and the things needed to fix up an investment property on just barely over minimum wage is not easy to do the thing that happened next couldn't have come at a more perfect time so all of a sudden I had money to spend to fix up this house and it would just get me to that next big paycheck that much quicker so that's what we did we fixed up the house we doubled our money we rolled it into the next one so we kept bouncing from house to house quite a few times and that sacrifice of from going from a nice house to live in to going to a crappy house to live in to fix up to making it nice again to going to another crappy house to fix up it became pretty stressful but we always had our eyes on the prize “are you still with me Murph?” after doing this two or three times I remember getting a check for the last one and the check was forty one thousand dollars so at that point it didn't make sense to work at Target anymore so I just started doing it full-time but we never took the big proceeds from the real estate and put it into our actual living we always rolled it into the next property and that kind of gave us the baseline of even how we live today we always live well below our means we take the money that we make and we put it into things that will make us an income not into something that will lose us money but you do have to treat yourself every once in a while otherwise there's no reason to make the money in the first place Kelly saw many of the high producing Realtors making large amounts of money so she decided to get a real estate license and she created her own real estate business so now we really felt like we had the world by the balls because we were getting paid a commission to buy the property and then we were saving half of the Commission when we sold the property and I was fixing him up so we just get rolling our profits in rolling our profits in rolling our profits in until family we were able to buy a house and now that we could get a house we were playing with the big boys the profits were much larger but so was the risk and we really didn't want to lose all the way it worked for for the last couple of years so we did a few houses and we made some great money but instead of selling them and pulling out our profits we kept them as rentals and it was at this point that we really started building up our rental inventory at this point it was about 2006 or 2007 and real estate was starting to slow down a little bit but we have purchased a large house I'm a courage that was really a big risk for us it was a large house to fix up it was our biggest project for sure it took us the most money to fix it up and we had the most money into it so we lived in this house for about 8 months while we were fixing it up and we kind of decided after doing about 12 properties that the moving all the time was starting to get kind of old and we were kind of getting older ourselves and we decided that we wanted to have kids and kind of settle down a little bit Murph are you with me? sometimes I feel like I'm just talking to myself so after the eight months was up we finished the house we sold it and shortly after the real estate market completely crashed the bubble had burst and Colorado was one of the hardest hit States we got out of the house just in the nick of time and not only did the real-estate market bubble burst we found out that we couldn't have kids and it seemed like a real low point in our lives but around 2007 when all this happened we realized our next lesson with every negative there is a big positive that can be gained from it and you can just use it as fuel for your fire so the recession was tough we thought our great life had come to an end we thought we were gonna have to get regular jobs you know people were losing their jobs left and right people were losing their houses Colorado was hit very very hard one of the worst states during the recession and we learned that what goes up must come down and in this case it came down hard in many cases not just real estate when things are bad that's the time to invest and if you're smart with your money and you've been saving while everyone else spending that's the time to benefit though from about 2008 to 2012 we were buying rentals so we were able to adapt I started doing contracting because that's pretty much what I was doing before but now I had to be doing work for someone else and Kelly's always been a mover and a shaker and even a bad real estate market she was able to keep her business moving we were buying things for pennies on a dollar and even though we were not making great money and in some cases losing a little bit of money on rentals we were able to stick it out and after lots of lots of years of lots of lots of heartache and lots of lots of doctors we were able to have two boys so about 2014/2015 real estate started creeping back up again prices kept going through the roof and just when he thought it was the peak they just kept going up stuff was flying off the shelves you could list a house and it would have multiple offers within 24 hours so we had about age 35 we were completely debt-free we had several rentals that we were cash flowing we didn't owe any money on the rentals so all that money was just rolling into a bank account when you have no bills and you have an income coming in your net worth starts to grow very quickly so we rode out the storm Kelly's business was doing great my contracting business was doing great we have liquidated a lot of our real estate in Colorado we had capital to play with we had two beautiful young boys and then I fell to my knees crying like a little baby I had herniated a disc in my back and I was on a walker for about a month contracting for me was out of the question I didn't even want to think about picking something up so I took some time off and I raised our kids which at first I thought would just be for a few months and then a year passed and then another year passed and I decided that I kind of liked it we had rental income coming in Kelley's business was doing better than it had ever been in fact she had started her own she had several people working for her and just as a little side income I got to do what I love to do which is antiques I was just buying and selling antiques so we were trying to be very strategic at this point because we owned a fair amount of property in Colorado but we knew that our ultimate goal was to retire at 40 and at the rate things were going up we didn't want to sell too early because we didn't want to miss out on that upside but we didn't want to sell too late because we didn't want to risk the chance of taking a step back so as some regret we sold the majority of our properties in around 2017 but this was a game-changer because we were able to make cash for every rental that we purchased so we loaded up on rentals in Iowa we actually purchased our property that we're going to move into which is actually where I'm headed now and that kind of brings us up to speed to current date I take care of our 10 rentals which keep which keeps me pretty busy just in itself i buy and sell antiques i get to see my kids all the time we have a good rental income coming in now we do youtube oh yeah we also do a couple fix and flips every year Kelly has her real estate team with about 10 employees and in June of 2020 we're going to retire at 40 so all in all life is great I have a wonderful family I have enough assets and passive income to live a comfortable life

Yes. I have done some videos on real estate. Some of you are like, “What the heck? Why is this guy talking about real estate?” Well, I've done fairly well in the real estate realm. If you're interested, you can always check out my playlist on real estate investment and investment in general. I'm not going to go into all the details here, but occasionally I like to answer a few real estate questions on this channel. I got one here from Jonathan and he says, “I'm 21 and set a goal that I want to retire by 40 to 45.” Cool. “With 20K of passive rental property income.” Man, that's awesome. I like that. I love that goal. That's a good goal. “Currently saving money to buy my first property and hopefully, when I get a web development job I can speed up the process. My question is how do I plan for this goal?” This is good.
So, 21, Jonathan is 21 and he's thinking this way and he's got this plan by 40 to 45 to make 20K of passive income from rental properties. I love this. This is great. “Thanks for everything you do and have a beautiful day.” I am having a beautiful day. Thank you, Jonathan. “P.S. I was thinking of buying a duplex and live in one and I rent out the other one so basically the tenant pays my mortgage.” So, okay, there's a lot of ways to approach this. I think Jonathan has got his head screwed on right. Well, I'll start with the last, the P.S. of renting out a duplex and living in one side. I think that's a great idea. This is a fantastic thing. More people should do this. A lot of you young people out there that are thinking about renting or buying a house, consider buying a duplex and renting out one side and if you find the right deal which—it's out there, you could actually have the renters pay your rent.
You see what I'm saying? You could actually live for totally free by having a duplex and renting out one side. I'm not going to say it's going to be super easy. I'm not going to say that those deals are everywhere. It depends on where you're at. You're not going to find that deal in California or New York, San Francisco, not going to happen, but if you're in the Midwest you might be able to find that deal. I've seen it before. I think that's a great idea, but let's talk about the plan. 21, you want to retire by 40 to 45. You want to get 20K of passive real estate income. It's not going to be easy, but it's certainly doable. What you need to do is you need to calculate backwards where you need to be and have a real solid plan for this.
I can give you a general outline, but I haven't run the numbers so I can't tell you exactly. There are going to be some factors in here, but you actually need to take a spreadsheet and actually need to calculate this and figure this out. It's going to be fairly complex, but you don't have to be super detailed. You can kind of ballpark this, but you do need a spreadsheet. You can get some rough answers here, but calculate this out, 20K of passive income from real estate. Let's say 45. What does your gross need to be? You're going to have expenses, you're going to have rents, I mean you're going to have property management, you're going to have a bunch of things here. That can give you an idea of what kind of wrench you need to be pulling in. It's not going to be a 20K wrench, you're not just getting 20K. It might be like 30 or 40K a month of rents. In order to get 40K a month of rent how many properties do you need and how much will those properties cost? How can you divide that over time and put inflation into the equation a little bit here over that period of time? Work backwards and make a spreadsheet and run some scenarios.
This is going to take time and some planning. Like I said, you can rough ballpark it. If I were just going to give you what I think would probably work for you, it also depends on how big your budget is. How much money are you investing every year? How much money do you have to invest every year. If you can put 10K down onto a rental property every year that's different than, “Hey, I've got 50K to invest in real estate every year.” That's different. Or 100K. Those are all different scenarios. What you're planning based on your current scenario might—there may not be—there might be this gap and you might be like, “Well, how do I get there?” It might not be apparent.
You might have to do some other things. You might need to make more money in your job or start a side business in order to fuel that. I had to do that to reach some of my real estate goals. Think about that and calculate that out. I'll give you kind of a rough timeline, a rough plan that I would have if I were you which would be something like—and this was the plan I initially developed when I was doing this which would be to buy one property every year, regardless. The nice thing I like about this plan is that it's scalable.
The size of the property depends—is dependent upon how much money that you have in that year. When I first started in real estate investment when I was close to your age, I think I bought my first house at 19, but I really started doing investments around 21 and started this plan of buying one house per year. I think the first house that I bought I was able to put $10,000 down. It was like a $100,000 house or $120,000 house. The next year it was probably about the same and then probably like the third or fourth year I had more money. I was able to put $20,000 or $30,000 down. I got to the point where I was buying properties and I was putting about $20, $30, $40,000 down every year on a property when I buy it. Some of that was because of the real estate that I was already making me money. Some of it was because I was making more money in my job and I had businesses and side things going on which helped me to do that. That's the kind of plan that I would—it's not going to happen magically. I think that's the key thing. You actually have to have a solid plan for this and you can run these numbers and calculate this out.
There's actually a really good book that I recommend called The Millionaire Real Estate Investor. I think that's by Garry Keller, the founder of Keller Williams if I recall correctly. I don't recommend very many real estate books, simply because a lot of them are crap. The reason why I'm really going to recommend that book to you is because it has these charts that show you—it gives you a realistic expectation over 20 years what the value of a property is likely to be, how much money you're likely to make from it, cashflow and all that. Again, it's as complex equation. You're not going to be able to nail this down perfectly, but at least if you run the numbers and you do the best job that you can, you can have a ballpark idea and you can always adjust the plan. You've got to have—you've got to know where you are and where you need to go in order to reach these goals. I'll also recommend for you—I have a course that I created called Simple Real Estate Investing for Software Developers.
You can check that out here. If you buy that course, obviously it has a money back guarantee on it, but that's going to help you to give you the basics of everything I know about investing. Just to give you a background, I have about 26 rental properties. They are all paid off. I started investing when I was 19. I kind of know what I'm talking about here. I don't give a lot of bull shit advice about this. I give you exactly—practical advice on how to get started and how to do this.
The reason why I created the course, even though it might not seem like it goes along with a lot of my other content, it was just simply because I was tired of so many people giving BS real estate advice and doing all these kind of scamming, no money down, speculative moves that just doesn't make sense. You need some kind of practical advice so that's what I put together there. Go check that out. This is good. I think you've got a good plan here. You just need to develop the plan further and it's going to be very dependent on your individual factors and—I think you have information though to say, “Okay, can you do this in 45—by the time you're 45?” absolutely! I believe that you can. It's not going to be easy, it's going to be hard to do. 20K is a pretty big number but it's certainly possible, but you're going to have to start moving now, which it seems like you're going to do, and you have to have a plan and it's going to take a lot of work and a lot of effort and you got to find good deals in order to be able to do this in that time frame.

I'm going to do a video on 5 simple things you can do to help your financial situation and I realized that I need to do a follow-up to the retired at 40 story video because there's a huge need for financial education in this country and really everywhere it pertains to every single person doesn't matter what your financial status is you can always use help and there's always little tip tips and tricks that and things that you can do to better your status it always amazes me how scared people are to talk about their finances to put something on paper to basically take a look at where their money is going what's getting saved and how everything is getting spent and I've met people time and time again that are highly educated very smart people but they know nothing about finances and they are terrible with money management so before we get into the 5 tips I want to strongly urge you to make a financial statement for yourself figure out where your money is going currently and figure out how much you're saving and basically figure out where you can trim the fat for so many people a financial statement or just finances in general is like a bad word they're just terrified of it but the only way that you're gonna be able to improve your finances is to face the music alright so now that you've had a chance to go through your financial statement you definitely know where your money is going but how can we save more and what you really need to aim for is about 6 months of reserves especially if you're getting ready to invest money into something or if you're doing some kind of career change or some life-changing thing and all of these five tips will more than likely be a line-item on your financial statement so let's go to financial tip number one hey I'm going to have to call you back I'm shooting a video right now so this first thing is something that we've all become very very accustomed to in the last 10 to 15 years and that is a cell phone and people tend to spend absurd amounts on their cell phones whether it's the bill or the cell phone itself mainly the cell phone itself so that's my first financial tip is shop on eBay or Amazon for a cell phone that's refurbished or used or one this may be just a couple years old I actually just purchased a cell phone on ebay because I'm having trouble with my current one and I got on to my cell phone providers website and the most expensive phone that's like mine now is $1,200 that's insane to me so I got on eBay I found one that's similar to the one I have right now it's new but it's a couple years old and I got it for less than $200 another thing that you can do is ask for some kind of loyalty benefit from your cell phone provider cell phone providers are constantly trying to earn your business and if you've been with them for a long time and you can convince them to keep you around by offering you some kind of benefit they'll jump on the chance just by going into my provider recently I have a cell phone bill that was about a hundred and ten dollars a month I told them that I've been with them for close to 15 years they knocked it down to sixty-seven dollars and I have unlimited everything now tip number two is what I call going to youtube University or getting a YouTube education we live in the most amazing time ever right now there is information everywhere and it's so easily accessible don't ever stop educating yourself it's so easy to find out how to do things these days you're doing yourself a huge disservice if you don't take advantage of that so how does that pertain to saving money well you can save money by doing tons and tons of things yourself instead of paying someone else to do it just look at the platform that you're watching right now for instance you're watching a video on how to do something so that how-to can be anything from changing brake pads on your car to changing the oil on your car to fixing a leaky faucet or the toilet flapper not working on your toilet all the way to how to the meal which brings me to my next point number three so food is a necessity in life but is it a necessity to go out to eat or go to Starbucks once or twice or every day the amount of money that people spend on food and going out to eat fast food Starbucks McDonald's it really adds up quick and I don't think that people realize how much money they're actually spending on it because it's just five or six or seven dollars here and there but if you add that up over the course of a month or a year or five years or ten years I think the result would be pretty staggering cook your meals at home pack your lunch for work make that fancy coffee at home it's not that tough to do there's so many great ideas and resources on YouTube and Pinterest and vlogs and blogs this channel included if you need a place to start scroll through my channel I have lots of cooking videos if you want to take that a step farther you can start growing your own food and if you don't have a big green house like this you can grow a lot of food just in five gallon buckets even on a little deck if you don't know where to get started see tip two number four is something that really hits home for me because me and my wife are both self-employed and we have been for 15 plus years so number four is insurance and although I don't like insurance companies because I think they're a giant scam it's a necessary evil and you can also use that to your advantage you can put them against each other insurance companies much like cell phone companies are begging for your business and they're constantly trying to outdo each other with with certain benefits or promotions so make them put their money where their mouth is and put them up against each other constantly and not just insurance companies you can do this with all kinds of different companies you should always be price checking these companies the ball is in your court make them earn your business all right I'd saved the best for last tip number five is taking advantage of bank account and credit card bonuses and this tip is begging for a separate video all on its own because I could go on about this for a long time but if you're not taking advantage of credit card bonuses for sign ups or credit card cash back or travel miles or if you sign up for a bank account a lot of them will give you a large sum just for putting your money with them now I want to be clear I'm not promoting just going out and spending a bunch of money on a credit card but more putting the things that you already spend money on into the credit card it's money that you're spending anyways put your mortgage on a credit card if you can insurance is a good one it's not super expensive but at least we'll get you a couple hundred bucks on your credit card unless of course it's health insurance and then you're talking in my case thousand to twelve hundred dollars a month here's another good one groceries it's something that you always have to have and depending on how much you go to the grocery store it could add up to three or four hundred bucks a month sometimes six hundred maybe even more no-brainer here put your gas on a credit card you can always put your utilities on your credit card too if your utility company will allow it next from tip one your cell phone bill now depending on how much some of these are and if you are allowed to actually put them on your credit card you're talking some pretty major money that you can get a bonus from if you're getting two percent cashback that really adds up not only that but you're increasing your credit score while you're doing that so as long as you're financially responsible and you pay this every month you're reaping a large benefit a lot of credit cards will give you a 2% cashback they'll give you a $500 signup bonus that's free money in my opinion the free bank bonuses or even better than the credit card in my opinion because the bank account is something that you have to have anyway a lot of them will give you $500 for a small deposit as long as you put your direct deposit with them all the way up to I've seen $1,000 before and if you have a little bit more money to play with some of the online money market accounts like Capital One will pay you up to 2% or some even up to 2.5% just for keeping your money with them so some of these things may not seem like it's saving you a ton of money but when you take up those extra fives and tens and occasional hundreds and you put them to work for you as opposed to something that you're normally spending you're not only saving the money because you're not spending it but you're putting it to work and doing something else with it and you'll find that your your finances will start to collect very quickly so if you found the video helpful and you enjoyed the content take a second to give me a thumbs up it really helps out the channel and it helps the YouTube algorithm get this video out to
