PostHeaderIcon Investment Strategy for Retirement (Part 1)

Certainly not too many people in their 20s are thinking about retirement. At this stage in your life, you’ve recently graduated from college and busy navigating your career to gain professional experience. Unfortunately, unlike your parents’ generation, employers no longer offer retirement pension plans. Nowadays, the burden is on you to invest in your own retirement funds. Forget about social security; by the time many people reach retirement age, monthly benefits would be reduced by 21% beginning year 2034 according to the Motley Fool. Thus, we definitely can’t rely on Uncle Sam to help us in our golden years. The U.S. government can’t even balance the country’s budget and currently, the national debt is almost $20 trillion.

After the class earlier, I found the real answer; the topic was an amazing one. Expecting the best to happen really provides such excitement.

PostHeaderIcon Important Lessons From The Millionaire Next Door

When we think of the rich, we often picture the affluent living in mansions, driving expensive foreign cars and lavish vacations as portrayed by the media, but our perception of the affluent has been distorted by high consumption driven advertisements and Hollywood. Based on years of extensive research, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley and Dr. William D. Danko, discovered that people who live in expensive neighborhoods across the United States have actually very little wealth. Their book, The Millionaire Next Door, surprisingly reveals that those with great wealth, the multi-millionaires, could be one of your neighbors who lives in the same modest house for years and drives an old sedan. How could this be?
