Even though many people dream of the earliest and the most satisfying retirement, a good number of us don’t deliberately plan towards it. The truth, however, is that plan or not, life happens, and life happens really fast.
As young people, we’re often focused on living the dream; a successful career, a profitable side hustle, spending time with loved ones, bagging a new degree, owning our dream car, apartment and other luxury things that money can be but forget that all of these things can be achieved by taking the right step in the right direction.
Thankfully, there’s an active truth that we can lean on – all your goals and aspirations are attainable. The earlier you start setting funds aside for retirement, the more wealth you’re able to build and the richer your retirement will be. It’s quite simple! Retirement isn’t just about how much money you were able to acquire; it is about how much of your dream life you will be able to enjoy with what you’ve acquired.
So, where do you start? You can start by:
- Taking active steps to learn about goal-driven financial planning.
- Gaining financial literacy by understanding the savings and investment options available to you. From the moment you earn your first salary/income, or even your NYSC allowee, to the very minute you decide on retiring, you are responsible for the health of your financial future.
