What do you want your retirement to look like? Have you asked yourself that question? You’ll have much more success if you know what you want before you start. Financially, knowing what you want your retirement dreams are in the beginning increases the chances of them coming true. If your dream is nothing more than to stay home and garden and watch your grandchildren you’ll need less money than if your retirement dream is a trip around the world with a stop in Italy to take cooking lessons. Knowing what you want has to be the beginning of a plan.
