Here are statistics from the marvelous book, Retire Young, Retire Rich, which originated from the Federal Government.
By age 65, what the government considers the age of retirement, out of one hundred people:
36 – Are Deceased
54 – Live off Government support
5 – Are “well off”
1 – Rich
The numbers should startle you to first be thankful for the income opportunity our profession offers. Secondly, go to work on yourself and constantly improve and enhance your skills. Finally, my commitment is simple: Provide you with the skills to finish the race in the top five percent.
You are that important,
