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 25 and starting your first job or 55 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!

Hugely sensible book and well done Chris. As the book progressed didn't feel as if I learnt anything that I hadn't already learnt from Dave R and just sounded like a more sporty version of Dave but with a deeper voice ( and of course without the "bankruptcy and rebuild" track record). Unfortunately I found myself wanting to fast forward through sections and although a sports fan, couldn't really connect to offence / defense analogies or insightful basketball coaches. Mindful of the commitment it takes to write a book but I think it lacks a hook
"Great book, but it's missing the foreword"
this was a great book. If you read other books by Dave Ramsey it's quite similar , but it's a new story with a new reader, it's a new way of saying things but it's quite the same message in the end. I really appreciate what Dave Ramsey team and what Chris did with this book. the only thing I didn't like is that it is missing the foreword by Dave Ramsey. the foreword is mentioned multiple times in the book without being present. you have a great voice Mr Hogan. I am looking forward your next book. Thanks
"Great for a Ramsey newbie; waste of time for followers"
I am a Dave Ramsey fan to the core. I am always being made fun of at the office and then a minute later asked financial questions based on Dave's teachings. I am even starting a financial peace class in the next few months.
This book is extremely helpful for anyone Who is starting out with the program/ideas.
But for someone like me, who has read a lot of his books and listens to the show daily. This book was a total waste of time, Chris is a great personality and I love to listen to him. I did enjoy the few facts that he did provide, like the history of retirement. But as a whole this book was a regurgitation of Dave's own words and really did not bring anything new to the table. As a hard-core fan, I was extremely excited to listen to this book, but it was disappointing .
"really valuable information easy to understand"
Great info! Chris really breaks it down into practical no nonsense advice. This is valuable if your starting out or even starting late on your retirement. He covers everything and makes various investment strategies easy to understand including creating a trust and a will. I have already recommended this book to many others.
I absolutely enjoyed the book!!! I gave it all stars because it explained everything you want to know in detail. I learned so much even retirement information I knew was broken down in a way a beginner can understand and someone with great knowledge can take away something new. I would recommend to all my friends and family !! Great job Mr. Hogan !!!
I paused a few times to take notes. Chris Hogan is easy to listen to. Some basic info already known via Dave Ramsey- but absolutely learned several new things! Recommend as pet of your retirement education.
"Only for Newbies; review of basics"
I was looking for a deeper dive as to where to put my retirement money. This was not it. It is mostly just motivational as to why to save, live within your means, investment basics, etc
I also didn't like the advice to get a personal finance coach.I bought the book to educate myself so I could be my own coach...
"highly recommended for teenagers and young adults."
no matter where you are in your financial situation this book has something for everybody.
this is a great book for anyone at any stage of retirement planning. chris hogan is easy to listen to and gets you excited for your retirement journey!
This book put me back on my financial goals for life, the word budget is need
ed in everyones life,
"This book could change you life"
Learned so many things i didn't know. This book definitely inspired me to change the direction of my life to "retire inspired"
