Futures By Design

“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”-Gloria Steinem

Futures By Design

Futures By Design™ helps you to quickly and easily define your desired lifestyle and the year-by-year cash flow required to fund it.

The first step is to describe what ‘your OK’ looks like. Just like an architect designing a dream home, you start by creating an initial rough draft – an outline of the many items on your wish list. The easy edit features of Futures By Design™ allow you to quickly build successive drafts, with each version providing new understanding and greater clarity. This iterative process continues until you have a detailed description of how you would like to live the second half of your life.

With so many things to consider when planning a journey that could easily last more than thirty years, Futures By Design™ ensures that you do not overlook important issues. You will also be encouraged to consider the new paradigms that thought leaders are encouraging baby boomers to incorporate into their plans. Futures By Design™ uses easy to understand graphics designed to help you explore the complex relationships between the multitude of events, desires and obligations you have built into your plan.

Futures By Design™ is particularly powerful in helping life partners share their individual visions of retirement. Together, the two of you can construct an umbrella plan that captures your individual expectations and shared dreams. The program is internet based, so you can work on your plan in the comfort and privacy of your home. You can also quickly record decisions or changes whenever and wherever they occur to you.

With a clear understanding of what you want to do, incorporating the timing of events and required cash flows is simple. Now all vested parties have a clear understanding of what you want to do, when you want to do it, and how big you want to do it.
