There are more and more books coming out about planning for the non-financial side of retirement-people are seeing how important it is to a successful retirement.

One great book to begin with, and provide to clients and prospects, is Longevity Lifestyle by Design: Redefining What Retirement Can Be by Mike Drak and Friends.
(Note: I am one of the ‘Friends’ contributing authors. My chapter is “Why Men Struggle in Retirement.”

This link is to order it on Amazon.  If you want a bulk order to give to clients, contact me for large volume orders. I can also provide the accompanying workbook.

The book and workbook are also available as FREE PDFs-you can download each HERE.

Contact me if you would like additional book recommendations to read to learn more about retirement and longevity planning to help clients learn the challenges and opportunities in their ‘Encores.’

Happy reading!
