Retirement Planning is Like Building a House

Before the holiday break, Steve and Gabriel recorded a great episode of the Our 2 Cents podcast. To kick off the show, Gabriel shares a great analogy about retirement planning and the ways in which the fundamentals of building a retirement plan resemble those of building a house.

Next, the guys answer some thoughtful listener questions and wrap things up with some updates that will be coming to Medicare and Social Security in 2022.

  • Just as every house depends greatly on each of its cornerstones, every financial plan relies on all of SGL’s 4 Core Pillars. We’ll share what they are.
