For the past 19 years, I have followed the advice of well known financial advisors advocating that I should first get out of debt and then begin saving for retirement.
“Did I just hear you right? Did you say 19 years?” Yep.
I’ve made some pretty bad financial mistakes during this same time, so I don’t blame these advisors for my current situation after following their advice. I just wonder whether it’s still the best advice for me now – to continue putting off saving for retirement until after I’m debt free?
