    You wrote that if you fail to plan your retirement or make big mistakes, it can cause serious financial struggles in the future. I was wondering what those who had to seriously think about retirement did to best prepare themselves. Having that professional assistance could go a long way in keeping you safe and secure in your financial position, which is very especially since you won’t be working anymore. Thanks for the read.

    In the taxable account, invest for the dividends and dividend growth goals stated above, with a balanced portfolio approach for safety. In the retirement accounts, invest in dividend-paying companies with excellent prospects of dividend growth.
