Book Description: When you hear the word retirement, you probably don’t imagine yourself scrambling to pay your bills in your golden years. But for too many Americans, that’s the fate that awaits unless they take steps now to plan for the future.
Whether you’re twenty-five and starting your first job or fifty-five and watching the career clock start to wind down, today is the day to get serious about your retirement.
In Retire Inspired, Chris Hogan teaches that retirement isn’t an age; it’s a financial number—an amount you need to live the life in retirement that you’ve always dreamed of. With clear investing concepts and strategies, Chris will educate and empower you to make your own investing decisions, set reasonable expectations for your spouse and family, and build a dream team of experts to get you there.
You don’t have to retire broke, stressed, and working long after you want to. You can retire inspired!
I was a little hesitant to read this book on planning for retirement because usually these types of books are written by financial guys who have made a lot of money and will have no worries in retirement. In this case the author does not come across this way, but writes in a helpful, down to earth way, giving advice and tips on how to get where we want to be so we can retire comfortably. He encourages us to set our own goals and take steps necessary to make these goals our reality. As you do this, the author is confident that you will be able to retire in a way that will help you maintain your current lifestyle. The younger you are, the better this book is for you because you will have more time to stash enough money aside. But I’d recommend to anyone who is nearing retirement age as well.
