Freelance Retirement Plan Vehicles

Michael shared that if you don’t work for a company that offers a 401(k), retirement savings tools such as a Simple IRA, Solo 401(k) or Individual 401(k) are great vehicles for building up retirement savings.


Financial Planning and Discipline Are Key

The key to successful retirement savings for freelancers is planning. You need to be disciplined and prioritize goals. And you must make sure money is automatically moving into this account every few weeks.


Save Until It Hurts

Michael reiterated that we should contribute to retirement accounts until it hurts — until you feel the pinch. You can always pull back how much money you contribute. But, of course, the more you save, the more it grows over the years.
