How will you fund your Retirement?

20 replies
As we all know we can't rely on Pensions to fund our retirement. Which of the above from the poll is likely to fund your retirement?

IM is a funny animal and most of us never plan our retirements but I think a bit of careful planning and taking action will get us there.

    A good network marketing using the power of POD will be the best solution for a passive income according to my experience and understanding. People rely on that for an early retirement and I know many who achieved financial freedom and retired when they are as young as just 28! This is practically possible with such good company only; not all.

      Besides fund, I reckon that to stay healthy is important, so that one can do something gainfully during retirement age.

    In my 20s, I've started to build my retirement fund through paper assets (mutual funds, equity funds and in the stock market). To me, investing (not trading) in the stock market is the best type of investment (although risky).

    I didn't vote because it's not included in the poll.

        This is something I've been thinking about a lot lately

        When I had a J.O.B. I used to have a certain amount withheld from my check every two weeks and didn't think much about it, but now that I am self-employed, I feel like I need to come up with some type of strategy

        Obviously, I hope to be making money off web properties for the rest of my life, but you never know what the future holds

      Thanks Ken. It's always good to plan ahead and make sure that we're all doing well financially and health wise during retirement.

    Some cause-oriented hackers recently hacked one of my websites. So I researched what they're about and then donated a large sum of money to the entity they hate the most.

    The next time they hack one of my websites I'm going to donate DOUBLE.

    For my case only my eyes going off can stop me from going on with my IM career.
    so definitely my retirement isn't coming any soon since even when i will be at 70 will still work on my IM career.

    Thanks Ross

      Ross,

      Great post and question. I am already retired from the corporate world but I choose to keep working on my own terms.

      I began saving for retirement as soon as I finished grad school and was hired in my first full time job.

      I also participate in a state retirement pension that I accumulated over my working career.

      If I had to do it over again, the best advice I can give would be to:
      1. Begin saving as early, as often, and as much as possible;
      2. Live within your means;
      3. Always pay yourself first - and if you can't do that you're not living within your means;
      4. Begin a business online even if you have a regular job - this is an asset that can pay off both now and in the future;
      5. Freely give to worthy causes - church, charities, helping others, etc
      Don't focus on money. While it does fund the necessities, it is not the most important thing in your life. Your character, family, friends, health, and other things should never be relegated on your priority list to a spot below acquiring money.

      The best to all of you,

      Steve

    I am taking a mulit-prong approach to this. I do have a pension plan which I will be eligible to withdraw when I am aged 60. I also have an unoccupied apartment that I can rent out any time. I am also investing in high yielding stocks and hope to live on the dividends.
