Withdrawal Strategies in Early Retirement | MHFI 190

Carl and Doug explore the nuances of early retirement, diving into aspects ranging from daily life to responsible financial drawdowns.

They also address withdrawal strategies, involving rental properties and index funds, automated transfers, and how to handle Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs).

The discussion expands into elements of happiness in retirement, spending decisions and the implication of tax optimization and reinvestment.

Additionally, a conversation about handwritten notes vs. digital tools unfolds, shedding light on the benefits of ‘old-school’ note-taking.

Listener Questions: What does your retired life look like?  Do you still work, do you have income, do you still consider yourself retired if you do?  What does your daily routine look like?

Do you have a withdrawal strategy that provides excess savings?  If so, don’t let that money go to waste.  Come support us over at Buy Me A Coffee.
