If your salary increased at the average historical rate, you’d have earned nearly $2 million by the time you were 65.1 That might sound like a lot – until you begin thinking about all the financial goals you’ll need to juggle in a lifetime, including buying a home and paying your child’s education, while funding your own retirement...
