I turn 40 tomorrow. As of right now I feel like its just another day and just one more birthday.
But as I start to think about where I am in my life right now, two things come to mind.
1) I wish I started investing earlier
2) I’m glad I started investing as early as I did.
A picture is worth a 1000 words right?
What if you’re 40 years old and have zero saved?
It’s a tough position to be in and I’m fortunate I can celebrate my 40th knowing that I started saving early enough. I’m well on my way to achieving my financial goals in the next 5 years.
But I can’t help and stop to think about some friends that hit a rough spot or never thought of investing.
But I hope they read this and see that even at age 40, one can still save a decent nest egg.
If you’re 40 and reading this and haven’t saved anything, I hope this motivates you and helps you realize you still have time.
But that window is closing and 25 years will go by quick!
