As entrepreneurs, we've chosen an exciting life of risk, challenges and personal growth. When you own your own business and control your destiny, the upside is endless...but so is the downside. If we don't plan carefully, a life spent chasing our dreams and making things happen can leave us with very few choices in retirement.
No one wants to live the swash-buckling life of an entrepreneur but end up as a greeter at Wal-Mart later on in life. Who wants to spend their golden years wearing a polyesther uniform and saying "Would you like fries with that?" That's why planning for retirement is even more important when you don't have the safety net of a large company to help push you along.

-The basics of retirement planning
- The power of tax deferred investing
- The retirement planning options available to entrepreneurs (people who do not have access to a traditional company plan or 401(k))
