Summary

Recent statistics suggest that nearly two-thirds of Americans regret not planning properly for retirement. We tend to underestimate the key factors of retirement planning: our total lifespan; the probable length of our retirement; and, perhaps most significant, how much money we’ll need to fund those years in retirement. In fact, retirement planning can feel so overwhelming that many of us put off thinking about it at all until it’s too late to make the necessary changes. 

Of course, the future tends to get here before we know it - and it does not arrive with its own financial security unless we plan it that way. In How to Plan for the Perfect Retirement, Professor Dana Anspach of Sensible Money, LLC will be your step-by-step guide to help you create the future you want. No matter how old you are or how far along in your working life, it’s never too early or too late to develop a plan that works for you. Professor Anspach will take the mystery out of retirement planning by identifying specific questions you need to ask yourself, explaining exactly how to examine your personal finances, and demonstrating how a small change now can benefit you greatly later on. With vibrant and informative graphics, illuminating statistics, revealing real-world stories, and crystal-clear explanations, this course will make planning for retirement clearer and more attainable than ever before. 

In this course, you’ll learn specific steps you should take right now to help you plan for the future no matter your income level, age, or family circumstance. Beginning to form a concrete plan allows you to take actionable steps and leave the worry behind. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good course, mainly for Americans

Great course, but please note it is centred around pension options in the US. The general idea is applicable everywhere but not the details.
