Financial planning does not have to include retirement and should absolutely be focused on your own goals and time horizon. What probably everyone should plan for is how to cover expenses at each stage in life. Regardless of if or when you want to retire, you would probably agree that growing and protecting your personal assets is a good plan. After evaluating and your current cash flow, assets, and future goals, you could invest in a diversified portfolio that is allocated based on your risk tolerance to help fight inflation and generate additional income.
