I was voluntold to give a lunchtime seminar in our community on a topic of my choice. I converged on the topic of retirement savings. My slides are downloadable here.
The presentation contains nothing I haven’t already harped on in the blog, of course. I just present the simple case of:
1.) Being frugal
2.) Keeping your taxes low
3.) Keeping your investing costs low
Who knows how the presentation will be received. I feel like these are basic topics, but anyone who takes them seriously will be on track to accumulate well over a million dollars over their careers.
Let me know if you have any feedback.

I’m curious how this went for you. Was it well received? Your presentation seems great, albeit jam-packed with a lot of information and quite a bit of math… which I’ve found tends to make the average person’s eyes glaze over and then they stop listening.
It was fairly well received. This presentation (or ones like it) should be required for all college students. The people who showed up were in their 50s & 60s. Not really the ideal target audience to hear the message of “save early and often.”
