“I Wish I Had Saved Less” – (Said No One Ever)

There is no magic save button we can press to help us save a little extra. Saving has to become automatic, second nature, and never-ending. We as a society, must relearn how to save even when we don’t have a specific event, item, or goal that we are saving for. Tressa Wasson, owner of Retirement Planning Specialists-Midwest, LLC and RPS Insurance Solutions, LLC has set out to help educate Americans on how to learn to save again. How to save early. Save often. Save more. Save efficiently. And save with help from an expert.

This book aims to help you stay focused, address any fears before they address you, and aid in finding the best financial professional for your specific scenario. There is no one size fits all when it comes to planning for your retirement.

Do you know what color your money is?

Unfortunately, many people spend their time and energy focusing on how to accumulate a large retirement nest egg without giving much thought to first, what the purpose of their specific retirement assets are, and then how it should be invested. While accumulating your retirement assets is important, we feel that it is just as important to have your money in assets that represent the purpose as well as the risk or safety that you want.
