RSP Interview Opportunity - Like Many Canadians, Small Business Owners Are Heading Into Retirement Unprepared

    TORONTO, Jan. 31 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:     According to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business,
              seven in 10 small business owners are expected to retire within
              the next decade, yet many of them don't have an adequate
              retirement plan in place.  Like all Canadians, small business
              owners must plan ahead to ensure they can achieve their version
              of retirement when the time comes.

    WHY:      One of the most common mistakes small business owners make when
              planning for retirement is putting all of their eggs into one
              basket.  For example, small business owners tend to invest all
              their profit directly back into their businesses instead of
              diversifying some of these funds by placing them into an
              investment portfolio.  This lack of investment diversification
              could rob small business owners of their retirement nest egg if
              something were to negatively impact their business.
