Sometimes it's the little things in lives that can have a huge impact for the rest of your life.
I constantly meet with people regarding your their finances that fail to grasp that simple concept.
Here's a reader question that involves having to rethink your financial mindset:
Love your blog and really enjoyed your thoughtful & thought-provoking recent podcast with Todd Tresidder. I'm a public school teacher in a large suburban district in Maryland, and we have a decent pension. But it's been chipped away at in recent years. In short, I'm afraid that it won't be there when it's time for me to retire. I might be barking up the wrong tree here, but can you give any insight into how much faith I can/should put in a current pension being there 35 years from now? And how might that affect my short-, medium-, and long-term financial planning? If it matters, I'm 29 and currently single but likely to get married and maybe start a family in the not-too-distant future. Thanks!
