Dave Hughes starts his own LGBT Retirement Lifestyle website: Episode 63
< 1 day ago
Dave Hughes is the founder of Retire Fabulously! He originally thought it would be just for LGBT retirement lifestyle, but found that retirement lifestyle issues are largely the same for everyone.
Retire Fabulously is a website that provides the knowledge, tools and inspiration you need to plan your ideal retirement lifestyle. He is the author of “Design Your Dream Retirement,” which will enable you to envision, plan for, and enjoy the best retirement possible. Dave writes regularly for his blog, Retire Fabulously!, and U.S. News. His articles have appeared on Yahoo Finance, AOL Money, lgbtSr.org, Top Retirements, and Tiny Buddha.
About four years ago Dave was looking for information to prepare him for his own retirement, but all he could find was financial information.
He soaked up that information like a sponge, but it just wasn’t enough, so he started a blog, RetireFabulously.com
Dave is part of the LGBT community, and started his blog with the intention that he would discuss LGBT retirement lifestyle.
It turns out that retirement issues are the same for everyone, and now only about 40% of his audience are LGBT.
He told me about how we need to start preparing several years in advance to figure out what we are going to DO in retirement. We need to consider our retirement lifestyle, not just money. Dave and I are kindred spirits in that regard, and I’m glad that I’m not alone in my quest to spread the word on this issue.
Dave explained that the issues in retirement are about 95% the same for everyone, whether they are in the LGBT community or not. I asked about the other 5% and it turns out, it’s HOUSING and COMMUNITY.
I never thought about this before, but the LGBT retirement lifestyle is similar, but they have fewer options. Even though only 30% of retirees actually move after retirement, we all like to dream right? I don’t know about you, but I’ve dreamed about moving to Ecuador. Living on the equator and never being too cold or too hot really appeals to me.
