Life seems so long when you’re young, And then one day you actually start thinking about retirement — and it’s not all that far off. How did you get there? Seems impossible. And yet there you are. Worried you haven’t done enough to prepare.
Although early on you somehow assume all this will just happen, you want to have enough money set aside so you actually can retire. Even if “retire” for you might include doing things you truly love that also earns money. And for most of us that takes some solid planning early on.
