I saw this post today from Retire by 40 and thought “Wow.. a really great way to look at using compounding”. Ok, actually when I saw the title I thought it was a running training article, which would go better with My Running Blog. But I digress..
Sprinting at the beginning? Horrible idea for a marathon race, but an AWESOME idea when applied to retirement savings. We’re in the position where we’re sprinting at the end (i.e. saving more now) but what if you (yes you) could sprint at the beginning of your career? RB40’s numbers make a great case for that.
