Are you unknowingly increasing your financial risk in Retirement by trying to avoid it? Today's episode will transform your understanding of financial safety and risk management in Retirement. We'll unravel the paradox of relying solely on fixed-income investments and explore the nuanced risks, such as interest rate and inflation risk, that might be lurking beneath the surface.

Throughout this discussion, we'll share real-life stories and examples to showcase the diverse perceptions of 'safe' investing. Ever wondered why one person’s definition of risk is another’s playground? We'll break down how personal experiences and backgrounds shape these perspectives.

Additionally, we will demystify the factors that impact the value of your investments. Learn why price isn't the same as real value and how liquidity and inflation play critical roles in your financial health. We’ll emphasize the importance of being strategic buyers instead of panic sellers and share tips on balancing risk and reward for a stable financial future.

Steve Campbell Podcaster | Business Owner | Husband | Father to Four

Based on lessons learned during the 2008 Financial Crisis and extensive professional experience, Ditch the Suit’s was a response to the panic induced by the COVID-19 Financial Crisis, where a collision of social fear and financial volatility, fueled by the politicization of nearly every issue, seemed to tip the world upside down. With the goal to help people avoid making financially destructive decisions, co-hosts Travis Maus and Steve Campbell produced daily recordings on a wide range of topics, such as staying positive, understanding the financial impact of new legislation, how to take advantage of the stock market when it crashes, blocking out fear-mongering, etc. which eventually gave way to the creation of the Ditch the Suits Podcast.

Ditch the Suits has become more than a podcast – it’s become a movement. Travis and Steve share their experiences and industry insights in order to help you make one good financial decision after another.

Their listeners know they will hear things from us that no one else is willing to tell them!
