Retirement isn’t something that the young think about. Neither is investment. However, as we age, we devote more thought into these things as our age begins to catch up to us. Our own mortality reminds us that we need to plan for a time when we can’t rely on our bodies to make us money, and relying solely on social security is no longer an option if we want to live comfortably.
