Retirement. It’s something you’ve heard about all your life, looked forward to, dreamed about, maybe even saved a little toward—but have you actually planned it?

If you ever hope to retire, and stay that way, you need a solid plan. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 25 and working your first job out of college or 55 and inching ever closer to a potential retirement date. If you don’t have a well-thought-out plan, you either won’t be able to retire, or you won’t be able to enjoy it when you do.

A comprehensive retirement plan doesn’t just look at your savings. It considers your health and wellness plan, your legacy plan, your ability to maintain income while working, your long-term care costs, your budget, your debt, and more. This book was designed to show you all the planning points you need to consider and give you tips and tricks to get them done as simply as possible—one day at a time.

With multigenerational tips to give specific guidance to millennials, gen Xers, and baby boomers, Your 30-Day Retirement Plan is a must-read for people of all ages.
