What does a Corporate Lawyer and the Genie from Aladdin Have in Common? Friday Trivia

I had a really interesting conversation with a client the other day.  To give you a little background, I don’t know him personally (that is to say outside one or two conversations), he is 50 years old, successful, not ultra high worth successful but amazingly comfortable, couple kids, a wife and he wanted to map out his retirement cash flow.  It was during this conversation that he said something to me that for some reason I can’t get out of my mind.  So since I own this blog you get to hear about it!

Part of his future cash flow is a non-qualified defined benefit pension, that is to say when he hits 62 he will have an income of $130,000/yr pre tax, but it was during this conversation that has got me pondering.  He said to me,

If I have to wait to 62 to retire, I am going to lose my mind

With that story in mind watch the following video:

  1. They are capable of doing more but they are also trapped inside a bottle, or a box as most corporate attorneys work in.

  2. I would say its more like they value freedom more than power/riches, except your high worth individual is probably going to wait and get the pension, which means he values that more…

  3. lol, SAM’s answer had me rolling on the floor!

    I think your golden handcuffs picture says it all. That’s a pretty big nut to have in the end, but a long time to do the required monkey dance… that’s for sure!

    I guess it suck being in servitude to the big corporations! (hmmm, I guess Sam’s answer was spot on after all).
