Investing Skeptically!

How Much Do I Need To Retire?

NOTE:  This post is part of an ongoing education series.  This information is for educational purposes only.  This information does not constitute investment advice.  Please consult with your financial advisor before taking any action.  For planning advice contact Polaris Financial Planning.

Most advisors suggest that you can take out between 4 – 6% per year.  For most people 6% will be OK but you must have your portfolio set up correctly.  So if you need $60,000 per year you should have a portfolio of $1 Million.  Let us look at two different theoretical people Jack and Jill!  If you would like to see how it works out for your contact me at and we can figure it out!

Foundation Beyond Belief

Foundation Beyond Belief is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation created to focus, encourage and demonstrate humanist generosity and compassion. We select and feature five charitable organizations per quarter, one in each of the following cause areas:

  • Education
  • Poverty and Health
  • Human Rights
  • The Natural World
  • Challenge the Gap (charities based in other worldviews)

Members join the Foundation by signing up for a monthly automatic donation in the amount of their choice, then set up personal profiles to indicate how they would like their contribution distributed among the five categories.

Humanism at Work Conference in Chicago.

Polaris Financial Planning is a major sponsor for this event.  We are proud to cover the costs to bring Leo Igwe from Nigeria to talk about human rights in africa!

LEO IGWE, an award-winning Nigerian human rights activist and JREF Research Fellow, is one of the giants of humanism in support of basic human rights in Africa. Leo will speak about his current work shining a light on the appalling practice of witchcraft accusations in Ghana and Nigeria. It is courageous and important work in which he persists despite being harassed, arrested, and beaten by authorities in these countries.
