I’m not one of those people who hates their job, but at the same time – my best memories don’t really involve it.

Maybe I’m the crazy one here and people do have great memories from their job. Do you?
People planning for retirement will often put money into a Roth IRA or Roth 401K account, but that may not always make sense. This applies to both normal and early retirement.

You simply don’t need $1 Million to retire! You may have heard that you need this much or even more, but that might not actually be the case. You could want that much, but probably don’t need it.
