Throughout this episode, recorded on October 11th, 2021, Grant examines the importance of saving for retirement. He explains why early and consistent contributions yield hefty earnings, and recommends utilizing Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA’s) and 401(k) accounts to maximize savings. Finally, the host suggests avoiding individual stock picking. Instead, he urges savers to invest in index funds or passive mutual funds that benefit from steady market growth.
