    2019-10-09 | News

    Do you want to be a #millionaire? Is that a stupid question? It’s actually easier than you might think, but it will take time, patience and a willingness to save. Like most big goals, it’s a matter of planning. Your biggest tool will be your retirement account(s). A married couple maxing out their contributions can hit the million mark in less than 17 years with puny 4% returns!

You can be a millionaire!
