Raleigh, NC – December 29, 2012 – Rick Parkes, CRFA®, co-founder of Diversified Estate Services, recently discussed how time impacts your retirement money, and offers ways to help build a strong retirement plan.
“I find that time, math and money rarely move in the same direction,” remarked Rick Parkes. “It is quite strange because the whole idea of compounding interest and capital appreciation are based on a rate of return compounded over time.
