Retirement is a big scary word, one that many people aren’t prepared for, financially.
You know, retirement really isn’t that far off. I mean, sure, it could be 30 years away, but that time passes so fast that you should be thinking about saving for retirement in your first job out of college. In fact, I’d argue that you should start saving for retirement as soon as you start working! That way, you don’t “miss” the extra money that gets put toward retirement goals. You’re already saving, so you get used to spending what you have left in your paycheck.
Preparation is half the battle here, so if you can avoid all ten of these biggest retirement savings mistakes, you’ll be on the path to eating caviar (not cat food) in your sunset years.
