As we get set for a long holiday weekend celebrating our country’s independence, we thought it would be fun to incorporate that them on the podcast.

So on this episode of the Retirement Playbook Podcast, we’re going to list the things we want to be independent of by the time we reach retirement. If you’ve done a good job planning and executing that plan, each of these should be very achievable.

Everyone at Tondryk Wealth wishes you a safe and enjoyable 4th of July weekend.
