Believe it or not retirement is not a joke, or some fairy tale. It is real, but it has become a thing of the past. Currently our economy has tightened its grip and we are working longer and harder for that light at the end of the tunnel. Long gone are the days where retirement comes automatically, where you can throw in the towel and hit the road for long vacations, and family visits.

Don’t fooled, it may not be easy, but you are not planning for a quick fix, a right now financial issue, you are planning for the rest of your life, you can afford to take a few minutes and read about how you can be living it up, while others are still working.
