Growing up, I never had a job that would allow me enough money to save for retirement. I’ve always either worked jobs without benefits or freelanced. Now that I own my own business and am finally starting to earn a decent income, I’ve been putting away for retirement. I’m worried that I am far behind.
Currently, I do this:
– Max out my Roth IRA. Betterment’s goal forecaster says the average outcome by 2058 will be
– Invest $600 monthly with Betterment using their aggressive/high risk tolerance portfolio. Betterment’s goal forecaster says the average outcome by 2058 will be $998,740.
Should I be doing more? I’m attending law school within the next two years and will prioritize joining a firm with a 401(k).
