Flashback for a moment. The Great Recession during the early 2000s was life-changing for many members of the workforce. Nearly 8.7 million people lost their job over that roughly three-year period and had to make several new transitions. Enrollment at four-year universities, community colleges and technical schools spiked as people prepared themselves for a career switch. That means their planning for retirement also changed.
From traveling cross-country with the top down to spending hours each week volunteering at the local animal shelter, everyone has an idea of personal freedom, especially when it comes to money and retirement.
Family Investment Center has recently launched a new website as a resource to help individuals get to their idea of freedom.
