    The Importance of Taking Advantage of Your Company's 401k

    The Importance of Taking Advantage of Your Company's 401k

    “Sometimes people are reluctant to start investing and a 401k is perhaps the simplest way to just get started because all the work is done for you by your company.”

    The days of companies offering pensions are seemingly gone, but the era of 401ks is here. If your company offers a 401k account, you were probably handed a stack of papers about it when you filled out the rest of your orientation paperwork. Did you take time to read through them? Are you taking advantage of the opportunity your company provided you with? If you are pat yourself on the back. If you aren't there's still plenty of time to get yourself signed up and 

    This week Casey and Danijel chat 401ks, why Casey loves them, and how you’re losing money if you’re not taking advantage of the 401K you're being offered.
