A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to talk to some of my co-workers about the retirement programs we offer to our employees. Nothing too major, but I really wanted to get them engaged in their retirement planning. As you can imagine, in a company the size of Mission Fed, the ages of our employees vary quite a bit—from 18-year-olds just starting out, to others who will be retiring in a short time.
In order to do this, I thought it was best that I come clean and tell them the story about my retirement “planning.” I use the word planning loosely, because I can hardly characterize what I have been doing over the last many years as planning. More like hoping nothing blows up on me until I’m done working. Believe me—I know what you’re thinking: As the CFO of the fastest-growing credit union in the county, with as much time and attention he gives to all of Mission Fed’s finances, he must really be on top of his own finances, right? Well, I am now!
