Where to start
Begin by taking inventory of your spending, saving and investment accounts. Track your spending closely to help identify where you may be overspending. Next, think about how much money you’ll need to live the retirement that suits your style — big and small. That means considering larger expenses, like starting your own small business or taking a long-awaited tour of Australia, as well as your day-to-day needs.
