Welcome, and thanks for visiting RetirementCalm. This is a forum where personal insights, experiences, resources, and inspiration will be shared for individuals saving and retiring in Canada. Many of the underlying principles are applicable to everywhere in the world, but I’ll be discussing Canadian government programs and talking in CAD when posting. The plan is to post a BLOG monthly, and generate discussion or feedback from members.
I want to make clear, I am not a Financial Advisor. In 2008, I adopted a DIY approach to investing and never looked back. I continued to manage my own transition to retirement and finances in the decumulation phase.
BLOGs and websites are a very new experience for me, and I’m learning as I go. I have been testing various aspects of the platform, and making changes almost daily as a result. As I poke around, I can see I have a lot to learn. Please feel free to subscribe or check back regularly, as things will evolve as I learn.
