Financial literacy isn’t something they teach in school and it shows. Only one-in-three millennials are saving for retirement and even the Baby Boomers are terribly behind in retirement savings. In this exclusive interview, I talk with a financial advisor about the retirement crisis in America and how you can get back on track.

Kevin shares his financial literacy tips for retirement planning from the biggest challenges people face to how much you need to save. He manages millions in investments and has seen it all when it comes to investing for retirement.

This was an extremely inclusive interview. We covered everything from budgeting how-to and how to manage money better to the details of how much to save for retirement and how to get started investing. Kevin teaches you how to plan for retirement and how to visualize your plan so it becomes real and motivates you to save.

We talk about some of the rules of retirement saving and how to customize your plan according to your personal needs. Knowing this is going to make your retirement planning real and keep you on track to reach your financial goals.

    Retirement should not be thought of as a right – it should be something you earn. If you didn't save for retirement, then keep working until you drop dead

    2:08 in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s encyclopedia of body building he states that he could tell if a body builder could be champion based on one question, what is your goal. If they had a goal very far off, he knew they would quit. If they had a short goal, like add 1/2 inch to their biceps, he felt they had a shot. He explains how short term goals are rewarding and lead to huge goal success. If there’s no reward in the short goals, you’ll never achieve long term goals.

    Yes, I read his body building encyclopedia. I read about Arnold because he was very successful in everything he did. Why?
