If you’re anywhere near social media you may have recently seen lots of posts along the lines of, “By age 35 you should have X saved for retirement.” Today we take a look at that advice, and discuss what exactly we need to do to plan for retirement. We talk about the importance of saving at least something, the importance of time in the market, the magic of compounding returns, and Charles’ love of spreadsheets.
