Quiz #4- Do You Know What You Don’t Know About Planning For A Financially Healthy Retirement?

June 24, 2015

The younger we are, the tougher it is to get our heads around retirement planning.

And rightly so. It’s the last thing we care about when we’re in the midst of life- fresh out of school, starting a family or dealing with moody teenagers.

Instead of thinking “retirement”, why not dream about the wonderful world of “financial freedom”.

A time when we no longer need to work for a paycheque. When we’re free to follow our passions without regard to their earnings potential. Imagine being able to spend time doing what really matters at any age? Who doesn’t want the incredible feeling of true financial independence?

Below, is the fourth quiz in my series Tackling Personal Finance- Do You Know What You Don’t Know?

Same as prior weeks, the intention here is to test your knowledge on the basics (not the obscure). This quiz may be a bit trickier than the rest. However, it’s still stuff that’s great to know to achieve financial freedom/independence, a happy retirement, or whatever else you want to call it. Start planning NOW and you’ll get there before you know it!

My husband and I feel very fortunate to have reached the stage of financial independence and we’ve never been happier! It’s incredibly liberating being able to focus on the people, things and activities that mean the most to us.

If you want to get there too, please try out the quiz and see how you do…

  1. I scored 71% which I actually lower than I expected. This was a fun quiz, it showed some areas where I was totally off! My husband and I are working towards financial independence. Some days it seems like a really achievable and straightforward goal and other days I think we’re crazy to think we can make it work.

    • Thanks for your comment Jess! I love that you’ve made financial independence your goal. It’s completely normal for your feelings to be all over the map- mine were too! Stick with it (I never thought we’d achieve it either). The magic of compounding interest/returns really works over time- once it starts growing, you will really notice it. Good luck!

  2. Thanks, Patricia. I love hearing stories of success. Glad I found your blog 🙂
