How Much Money Do I Need to Retire? (and Enjoy Retirement)

Are you nearing retirement, or just planning ahead? Sooner or later it catches up on us. Sometimes voluntarily, other times due to downsizing etc, involuntarily. It’s never too early to start planning for retirement and the prospects of living on a fixed income.

The question becomes, how much money will you need to live on once you retire, and still have enough to enjoy your retirement years. We are living longer and prices keep going up, so it’s not a simple calculation. The good new is, there is a way to generate money for, and even after retirement, doing what you love to do anyway.


Do you want to Golf when you retire? I can show you how you can do that, and make money doing it. Love fishing? Same thing. Crafts, cooking, travel, literally anything. You are going to be doing it anyway, why not make money from it as well. Stick with me and I’ll show you how!

How Much Will You Need For a Comfortable Retirement?

The amount of money you will need during retirement will depend on several factors. How long you are going to live after retirement. The amount of money you will need for your everyday living expenses. How much money you want to have for travel, hobbies, etc. The total amount of your current savings, and how many years before you plan on retiring.

The Chart below can give you some idea as to how much it will take. If you are like me, you are going to need to start generating more savings to be able to retire comfortably. We will look at just how we can do that, and still enjoy our retirement years.

How to Generate Enough Money For Retirement

It may surprise you to know, that less than 20% of the population has saved enough for retirement. Many end up dependent on Social Security or other government programs for their retirement existence. Some end up working part-time jobs in their retirement years just to make ends meet. Or worse, selling their home and other assets to pay bills and living expenses.


Doesn’t sound like a very pleasant retirement does it? These are supposed to be your golden years. Your reward for a lifetime of work and paying your dues.

You have hobbies and interests that you were looking forward to enjoying once you retired. Unfortunately, many of us get caught up in our daily lives and put off retirement planning.

If you are like most people, you probably have a few hobbies and interests. You watch TV shows that feature your hobbies and interests, and maybe you have even watched a few YouTube videos that are about your hobbies. You may even belong to some Facebook groups about your hobbies. Do you follow your favorite hobbies and interests on Facebook, twitter and Instagram? Millions of people do, and because of that, advertisers pay to be featured there.

Did you know, that the people that own those social media accounts, websites and YouTube channels are making money from them? Well they are. Those products you see them using and mentioning are paying for that exposure.
