Personal Economic Model
As you look at this picture, what do you see? This image is a visual representation of the flow and storage of your money.
Your money flows in on a regular basis as earned income. Over your lifetime, the Lifetime Capital Potential tank represents all the money that you will earn, which is substantial.
Each and every dollar that is allowed to flow through to your Current Lifestyle is consumed and gone forever. The goal is to accumulate enough money in the Savings and Investment tanks so that by the time you retire, the dollars in those tanks can then be used to satisfy your future lifestyle requirements.
Position A would be to have enough in the tanks to live like you live today adjusted for inflation and have your money last at least to your life expectancy. That’s a win, but the icing on the cake would be to accomplish that with little to no impact on your present standard of living, and that is exactly what we strive to help our clients to do.
