Cost of delay in Retirement Planning
The question is not that “Do You need a retirement plan?” the question is “When are you starting to invest in a retirement plan?” We all retire someday no matter what the profession, even business owners retire someday. To have a peaceful retirement one needs to start as early as possible. You need time for your investments to grow.
Read the example below on how time helps you grow your investment.
