Fame & Fortune Q&A:
Bankrate: Anything else you can share as far as how you are planning for your retirement and long-term financial future?
Mike Greenberg: The way I try and handle my own finances is, I have a bunch of money invested in a discretionary account, and my goal is to never touch it. I don’t ever use that money. Now, I feel if I break even on what I bring in, my investments are growing without my having to interfere with that. So that’s what I consider my long-term financial plan. The money there is growing — which will hopefully go untouched for the next 20 years or so while I’m still working and maybe even longer than that — should be more than enough for my wife and I to retire on. So that’s the financial strategy I have now. I’m fortunate enough to have been able to put away and invest enough money. So if I just live at a zero balance, I’m doing OK.

Lesson learned: 
Have a plan for your retirement.
