My post yesterday (which I didn’t know I’d be writing a follow up to) was about whether or not what you say you value is reflected in how you allocate your money. Interestingly enough, today at work, the company that manages my school’s 401(k) plan came in to speak about the importance of saving.
I’m not going to go into all the numbers and what they can mean but I will say this: the sooner you start saving, even if it’s a little, the better of you’ll be in the long run. Compound interest is a beautiful thing. And, if your company is matching, take advantage of that maximum amount that you can contribute if you can.
I’m trying to set myself and my family up to be in a great position thirty years from now. You should probably be doing the same thing.
Make financial planning a priority.
