80% REPLACEMENT INCOME DOES NOT MAKE SENSE

 

All the calculations that you do for retirement and many of the calculators, advisors and everybody (everybody not in the FIRE) that you talk to says you need 80% of your last income. Whaaaat! It does not make any sense.

WHAT DO WE WANT

It’s not about money
