I put $25 into an IRA when I was a sophomore in college. Added another $25 my junior year. That account is now worth.... wait for it... $50.66. Whoo-hoo!
I started putting money into my 457 in 2002 (the first year I was hired). Real investing (researching, learning, asset allocation) started in 2006. After two years of reading everything I can get my hands on, I feel like I finally have a glimmering of a clue.
