You begin to tip out the various particles of your well-constructed life’s savings plan into a financial funnel. Everything pours through the narrow end, to this final frontier – RETIREMENT. It looks like a slow drip into a sinkhole and according to current views, not enough people have a grip on that funnel.
See this in a recent TD Ameritrade info-graphic with a specific focus on the self-employed retirement savings habits. On the 5th chart down, you will see this financial funnel and almost hear the gurgling sound of a slow flush.
Now invert this funnel.
What if the word was LONGEVITY not RETIREMENT? What then if being self-employed was the walk in an open frontier, not the final?
