“Retirement isn’t an age, it’s a financial status”

"Retirement isn’t an age, it’s a (financial) number” is a favorite saying of American personal finance expert Chris Hogan, who wrote the book Retire Inspired: It’s not an age, it’s a financial number (2016). The saying has several variations.

29 September 2015, Business Wire (New York, NY), “Ramsey Press Begins Pre-Sales of New Book by Chris Hogan”:
Retire Inspired, published by Ramsey Press and authored by financial expert and speaker Chris Hogan, is now available for preorder. In his new book, Hogan changes the way people view saving for retirement and equips them with the knowledge and know-how to properly prepare for long-term financial success. Retire Inspired (ISBN: 978-1-9370-7781-5) will release January 11, 2016, and retail for $24.99.
(...)
“Every day more people reach retirement age with little savings, no plan and lots of regret, and that’s not okay,” says Hogan. “But retirement isn’t an age; it’s a financial number - the amount of money you need to live during your retirement years. By equipping people with the tools and information to take control of their retirement planning, they’ll be able to determine their financial number and take the proper steps to reach this goal.”

Retire inspired : it’s not an age, it’s a financial number
Authors: Chris Hogan (Author), Dave Ramsey
Summary: When you hear the word retirement, you probably don’t imagine yourself scrambling to pay your bills in your golden years. But for too many Americans, that’s the fate that awaits unless they take steps now to plan for the future. Whether you’re twenty-five and starting your first job or fifty-five and watching the career clock start to wind down, today is the day to get serious about your retirement. In Retire Inspired, Chris Hogan teaches that retirement isn’t an age; it’s a financial number-- an amount you need to live the life in retirement that you’ve always dreamed of. With clear investing concepts and strategies, Chris will educate and empower you to make your own investing decisions, set reasonable expectations for your spouse and family, and build a dream team of experts to get you there. You don’t have to retire broke, stressed, and working long after you want to. You can retire inspired!

Remember that retirement isn’t an age. It’s an amount of money. Once your investments have grown to 25 times your annual spending, you are financially independent and can live off your investments forever! And on the flip side, nothing magical happens at 65 that allows you to stop working. If you don’t have your money invested and working for you, you’ll be working forever. (Do you think those 100 year old Walmart greeters are there because they love spending the day on their feet at the entrance of a Walmart?!)‎

15) Invest for your retirement. Retirement isn’t an age, it’s a number in an investment account.
Investing for 20 years may be hard, but being old & broke will be a lot harder.
