Saving for Your Golden Years

Andra Watkins knows her way around a tax return. She was a CPA before launching Positus Consulting, her business advisory firm located in Charleston, South Carolina. Her favorite deduction is her retirement contribution, because she gets to write the money off and keep it for herself. "I get to deduct it as a business expense, but it's still my money," she says.
