How To Create a Retirement Planning Checklist in Your 20s and 30s
It’s an easy mistake to make, thinking that retirement planning is a really complicated venture, especially in younger people who tend to spend a fair amount of their time simply enjoying life, not thinking too far down the line. “I mean, there’s plenty of time for that stuff… right?”

Hope you enjoy it!
