In her own words: “Retirement planning can’t be ignored. Retirement is insanely expensive—it’ll be the biggest expense of your lifetime. (Especially if you do it right and live it up for decades and decades in retirement!) You’re living 30+ years with no income. Think about your Future Self. Think about what YOU want out of your retirement. Think about what type of person you want to be, your hobbies, your dreams. Seriously, close your eyes and do it.”
