Long before retirement even hits our radars, we’re planning what type of education, skills training and professional designations we’ll acquire. We also spend a lot of time planning which industries are the best place to work in, and which employers to work for.
While many of us don’t realize it, we are constantly engaged in subconscious acts of investment planning. We plan how we can best invest the limited time we have at our disposal.
It’s said that only two things are certain in life: Death…and Taxes! And while there’s not much you can do to avoid the former, with prudent planning and foresight, there’s a lot you can do to minimize the latter.
If there’s one thing certain about life – it’s the uncertainty that living it brings. The best laid plans can sometimes come to naught!
For some people, financial planning is mainly concerned with how best to go about building a nest egg, and how to make it last through retirement.
