10 Ways To Have a Successful Real Estate Business for Years to Come

Real estate is not a sprint, it is a marathon. Many people get into the real estate industry because they think that they will be able to make a lot of money in a very short amount of time. This is not the reality in most cases.

401K – Option A, Option B, or Option C

Many people rely on their 401K for retirement but yet know so very little about it. Most people aren’t even sure what their retirement money is invested in besides Option A, Option B, or Option C. 71% of workers polled for AARP believed that they didn’t pay any fees for their plans! All the fees can be confusing, and the recent disclosure laws that came out late last year haven’t made things much clearer. Although it takes some work, it’s wise to know where that money is going so you can maximize the amount that ends up actually going towards retirement.
