Christine Ibbotson has been providing financial advice for decades. She's fully aware of the reality: In today's busy life, most people are worried about their jobs, their kids, and what to make for dinner. Planning for the future is usually last on the list. Most believe it is too difficult to understand all the ins and outs of the financial markets, how to save and plan for the future, and how to pay off their mortgage. They would rather leave it up to someone else to make the decisions on their retirement portfolios. As Ibbotson suggests, most people simply wait too long to plan—and then panic.
