It starts where I call “PRE-RETIREMENT” Understanding, Planning and Implementation. It also starts with CHILDREN. Kids aren’t born knowing this, their not taught this in school, So it’s up to you and me.
No “Get Rich Quick” plan here, sorry. This is a place for Understanding, Planning, and Implementing strategies to better your situation for retirement.
I’m amazed at how many people still believe, several things about this topic, that just don’t hold water. For instance; I’m so far in debt I’ll have to work forever. (not sure how long this is myself…) Never the less there’s NO LIGHT at the end of their tunnel or no end to their tunnel or how about, social security is failing, will it be around for me or my CHILDREN to retire on? Or I’m too old, or young to try to make things happen now.
Things are the same today, yesterday and they will be tomorrow.
The same situations have applied themselves throughout history, over and over. People have lost Jobs, Economical Recession, housing market to high, etc. and there’s a million more excuses where those came from however people still seem to retire. You will too!!! Unless of course you plan on working untill you…. Never mind~
OK, so I said I would give you 3 steps towards a better retirement. Here they are;
- Start saving with your kids… What? You don’t think you have enough money to live on now, how are you going to start saving…
- Be happy… You’re starting today. Many people still have nothing and won’t have. But you will, so be enthusiastic about saving your pennies. Look forward to working together.
- Take ownership… In your retirement. Remind yourself, no one will do this for you, and depending on how you take control of this situation will ultimately impact your life of retirement.
In the upcoming posts we will discuss simple saving techniques more thorough. I’m not ready to suggest a Broker or On-Line investing, just some simple things first. We will also be pushing forward towards Take a Kid Investing.
Please post a comment. There’s a lot to discuss within this topic. Tell me, What’s on your mind?
