When do you realistically plan to retire? Then again, define retirement! I plan to semi-retire at 35. I think of it as in I will be able to walk away for a week or more at a time and have no concern. The company will be able to run without my total presence. Right now I'm 22 and know that this is a very realistic goal. As for full retirement............well probably never but at 35 I feel I will then be able to look back and think "I've made it".
