You will be afraid to spend. Millions of Americans are under-enjoying their retirement because they’re afraid of the “what-ifs” that could derail their best-laid plans. They’re afraid of what happens if they live too long, markets crash or they require expensive ongoing care that their plans cannot support. They’re afraid of running out of money at a time when doing so would be catastrophic. These people are victims of an industry that has been seduced by the sexiness of accumulating investments, with no regard for how to use them later in life. With a modern twist on a centuries-old strategy, this book will help you understand how to begin with the end in mind and set up your finances to maximize income during your lifetime, while ensuring your goals are protected.
