It's nice to dream about early retirement. We do it all the time. According to the seventh annual Retirement Confidence Survey, two-thirds of workers polled would like to retire before age 65. Only 27 percent have any idea how much money they will need to retire. Tired of watching your life fly by while you're at work? Imagine being able to take that job and shove it...and well before you're 65! People have a lot of excuses for not retiring early but it is possible if you follow the strategies Les Abromovitz shares in You Can Retire While You're Still Young Enough to Enjoy It. You can retire early or find a lifestyle where work isn't an activity to be dreaded. Learn what early retirement really means, and how to get there--by making the right investments, tapping into retirement funds early without depleting your nest egg, working less and enjoying more, and living the good life.
