Should you Die with Zero?
Plan for experiences you desire
When you’re intentional in your planning, you’re more likely to get the experiences you want out of life.
Curiosity and continuous learning are a big part of our firm’s culture. The team is always sharing ideas, whether through podcasts, research articles, or books. Recently, Marcelo came up with a brilliant idea to take it to the next level, and now we have our own library at Tulett, Matthews & Associates. We’re excited to have this resource for the team and clients.
In honour of that, today, we’re doing things differently. In this episode, Marcelo and Keith review a book from our library – Die With Zero by Bill Perkins. The book’s concept centers around the idea that you’ve worked hard for your money, and you should optimize it by maximizing the life experiences that bring you purpose and fulfilment.
We talk about Bill Perkins’ take on the problem with conventional advice about retirement planning, his framework for life enjoyment, potential pitfalls from neglecting your financial foundations, how we advise clients to plan for the experiences they desire, the case for giving away your wealth based on when it has the most impact, and so much more!
