Grown Folk Talk About Career Path, Finances, Retirement, Influencer Culture, Social Security, & more

34m | Nov 10, 2023

On this Heard Tell Good Talks, our guest is John McCumber, who returns to Heard Tell to talk about the current discourse over financial planning, careers, and retirement from the POV of someone who did the "sell everything and move to Florida" thing after several successful careers. John not only was part of the more than 4 million folks that retired and dropped out of the workforce during COVID, but is also part of the millions who have returned to it part-time or with side hustles. John and host Andrew talk about how the news media coverage and the rise of "influencer" online are skewing and doing a disservice to folks trying to make life plans and decisions, why you have to hustle in your 20s and 30s to enjoy your 60s and beyond, grown folk talk about Social Security and the "safety net," why acquiring skill sets is more important than just getting credentials, and sharing life experiences that can translate to better decision making for the future.

All that and more on this episode of Heard Tell.
