Be prepared

-A A +A
By Greg Dumas

There once were two boys who we will call Tom and Tad.  They had a grandfather who did his level best to help them prepare for the future.  Gramp taught them many things, one of which was to begin early preparing for retirement.  He took them to New York City, toured the stock market on Wall Street and taught them about such things as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.  At seven years old the boys could recite the formula for becoming a millionaire.
When he turned 22, Tom remembered Grandpa’s advice and invested $2,000 into an IRA and continued to do so for eight years, investing a total of $16,000.  When he turned 30, Tom stopped adding any money to his account but he left his money there for the next 35 years, that money all the while compounding at 10 percent interest.  Times were good.  By the time that he retired, Tom had accumulated the tidy sum of $642,750; not a bad way to supplement his Social Security income.
