Here is a little bit about the book...

How can you improve your retirement planning?

Our retirement planning book doesn’t pretend to have all the answers. However, it will help you improve your retirement planning. Both those who are planning for retirement and those who are already retired will benefit from the teachings found inside.

Hours of live classroom instruction were distilled down to create a single text that’s short enough to be easily digestible, yet deep enough to hit the key points from in-person retirement planning courses taught by the book’s author.

The book is organized into seven chapters. Each chapter is dedicated to addressing important questions and concerns within one specific area of comprehensive retirement planning. The end of each chapter includes a link to a short online self-assessment. Each self-assessment will ask you a series of multiple choice questions related to the topics covered during the chapter. After completing each assessment, a Confidence Score is automatically calculated and displayed.
