It will make a massive difference – trust us.
OK, so maybe the word ‘best’ isn’t quite the right thing to say when talking about superannuation. Perhaps I should have said ‘smartest’ $20 a week spend – because that’s really what it is.
Stay with me on this one, I’ll tell you why.
As women, and working women at that, we should all be taking the right steps now to ensure our future is as secure as it can be. Investing in your own super is one of the best ways to go about it.
Think of it this way – $20 a week over ten years is an extra $10,400 towards your lifestyle as a retiree and that doesn’t even include any possible investment earnings – something that I know can be hard to imagine now as we proceed through the daily grind of working life.
But from your pay, $20 is something that you’d barely notice at the moment – but down the track it will mean a nice dinner out with friends or presents for the grandkids. It is an amount that could make a real difference to your lifestyle in the future.
I know it’s hard to picture now, but I’m told there is a magical time ahead. It’s a time where you exit the workplace and commit ‘meetings’ and ‘deadlines’ to a thing of the past. A time where you no longer need to wear a uniform daily and I’m told that it’s a time where you can sleep in each and every day if you so wish.
Sounds blissful, right? So it pays to give a small amount of consideration into what you can do now which can make this time more enjoyable.
