Retirement Goals

The sooner you start saving, the easier it gets to reach your financial goals at retirement. We cannot stress enough how important it is to start saving from your very first paycheck. Teach your children to start saving and you will have financially independent adults that will not have to live with you as Adults.

In 2020 almost half of young adults in America (18-29) live with their parents. Consider this for a moment….. Have you as a 40 or 50 year old factored this into your savings plan?

The question to ask is, “Do you want your adult children living with you up to age 29 or perhaps beyond? ” 

You have sacrificed to put them through school and University, or they may have large student loans which also need to be paid off. These debts are not going away any time soon while your adult children are unable to find work.

Teach your family to Set Retirement Goals

Setting retirement goals can be a very difficult concept to teach a younger generation that are obsessed with consumption. Younger generations have been taught to “live for today” and enjoy all that life has to offer. While this is true, you cannot “only” live for today, you will very likely be here tomorrow and for a very long time after that!

You cannot Invest what you have not saved!
