Why I Will Probably Never Retire

Here’s a snippet from the Young Family, Small Business Podcast where we did a reverse interview with the host, Ben Walker.

The question was asked,
“When are you going to retire? When are you going to stop working and enjoying life?”


We asked Ben the question, when are you going to retire? When are you going to stop working and start enjoying life?

Here’s what Ben said – 

“In all honesty, I feel like I will never retire.

But I’ll refine my working week, my life with my kids, and my family  so that I can do what I love. I’m aiming from 80% to 95% of the time with balance. And if I do that till the day I die, that’s winning. 

One of those things that sank into my mind is what, if money wasn’t a thing? If you asked me that question, I’d be sharing this ‘wealth for life’ message with clients, growing our team, helping them, being able to service the work with their clients better and all the training that goes into that. Personally, helping out with some tricky client advice restructures, and financial control – this lights me up and gets me out of bed.”


If you’re keen to explore changing accountants, we have a non-obligation process to do that. The first step is booking a strategy call with one of our accounting team. It’s a free 20-minute zoom or phone call where you get to meet us to manage your questions. 

From that point, you can consider doing a “Look Under The Hood” with us. There is no obligation to change accountants, but we give you a second opinion if you’re paying too much tax. 

Throughout that process, we can identify any problems we see with your current setup. Anything that your current accountant hasn’t claimed, or tax you may have overpaid, and strategies of how we might fix that going forward. We can run through with you once you book with us.
