With summer time in full gear, the business world takes a noticeable slow down as key employees that drive productivity are finally taking a few well deserved days off. Vacations have changed over the last 20 years in that the 10-14 days off at one time seems to have faded away and shorter more frequent “action style” vacations are trending. Planning and Google searches for vacation locations and activities are reportedly 38 searches per vacation, so if you spent 5 mins on just 20 of those 38 searches you’ve spent over an hour and a half. Multiply this by 3 short vacations a year (2015 AARP said boomers planned 4-5 a year) and a boomer spends at least 5 hours per year planning for fun.
How much time does the average person spend planning tax savings? None? One hour with the tax preparer as they pick up their return in April, which they almost never actually act on? If you Google search the question you get redirected to how much time is spent doing your taxes, because tax planning isn’t even searched enough to be a Google result!
