Paperback      ISBN: 1582704384

We financially plan for our retirement, but do we plan for our wellbeing? Here is an empowering guide with practical tools to help you live a passionate, fulfilling second half of life.

If you're part of the Baby Boomer generation, then you belong to 26 percent of the US population that is retiring healthier than any generation before. And that means retirement is starting to look a whole lot different.

No longer satisfied with a quiet life of sitting on the porch or puttering around the house, retirees (or soon to be) are looking to create a passionate, active, fulfilled, and engaging later life. That's where Ron Pevny comes in. His inspiring guide helps you do what he calls "conscious aging"--or making a reality the life of growth, purpose, service, and spiritual exploration you've always imagined for yourself. In addition to wisdom for navigating loss and grief, Pevny offers advice that helps you identify your goals, contribute to society, remain engaged and relevant, and spend your later years in profound personal development.

Today's seniors are reshaping what retirement is all about. It is a whole new opportunity to engage with family, community, and the world with vigor. Don't just grow older--age consciously.

PRAISE FOR

THE MILLIONAIRE

DEBT-FREE

"The Debt-Free Millionaire is a clarion call for a generation that was brought up on spending tomorrow's money today. As someone who spent time in the financial services industry, I can unequivocally state that Anthony's pragmatic and refreshingly contrarian approach to the real secrets of cash-flow management--and leveraging the credit system--are a breath of fresh air in a smog-choked world of misinformation and confusing financial advice. I can think of a million reasons to read it."
--MICHAEL DIFRISCO President, BrandXcellence

"Read this book. Do what it says. Start living the dream. If you're ready to take charge of your financial future, this is the place to start."
--KEITH J. CUNNINGHAM Keys to the Vault & Business School for Entrepreneurs

"The Debt-Free Millionaire offers unique insights, little known strategies and easy-to-understand practical tools to first manage then eliminate debt. It is a must read for both consumers and financial professionals to better explain the often complex world of debt management. More like getting sensible advice from a good friend than a technical financial advisor."
--ROY BALFOUR President of Ro Mart Inc.

"Tony has produced a clear and straightforward guide to debt, and how to eliminate it, that is as timely as it is needed. Anyone who follows the program in this book will be glad they did."
--JEFFREY K. MEEK Former Vice President-Recovery Operations, WaMu Card Services

"Great for readers of all ages and in all financial stages. This isn't one of those get-rich-quick schemes. This book provides a foundation for a paradigm shift in your thinking process and allows for you to see how to achieve the seemingly unachievable. I was hooked from the beginning "
--JENNA KEEHNEN Executive Director, www.USOBA.org

Distributionland
A Retiree's Survival Manual for Transitioning to a World of New Rules & Unexpected Dangers
Paperback      ISBN: 1599323591

If you're retired or on the way, meet Marty Higgins-- your guide for the journey through what he calls DistributionLand, a place of lovely landscapes but undeniable dangers. He'll show you how to enjoy this new world--but he wants you to be well-armed. As founder of Family Wealth Management LLC, Higgins is a specialist in helping families to build and preserve their savings to last the rest of their lives and beyond. In DistributionLand, he takes you into retirement territory, where you distribute the gains of your working years. Be warned: You need to adjust to a new set of rules here, or you may not make it, as many have sadly learned. This isn't Accumulation Land anymore, that youthful place where you built for a future far away. You need new strategies to fend off the beasts that lie in wait--among them, taxation, inflation, the cost of medical and long-term care, and an unpredictable market. You need not live in fear. Higgins has the tools that can help you do far more than survive in DistributionLand. He can show you how to create an income that will endure as long as you do, supporting the retirement of your dreams. An important first step is to define those dreams. Marty Higgins has the answers to the questions that he has heard retirees ask during his many years of practice. If you are to sleep well, you need to be confident that your money is secure and that you will be all right, no matter what. But he knows that you want and deserve more than that. You want to explore these new vistas and enjoy this new phase of life to the utmost. With Higgins at your side, you're in for a joyous journey. "We are entering unchartered waters and fortunately Marty Higgins has done the work of a cartographer in Distribution Land that will enable you to both survive and thrive in the times ahead." --Mitch Anthony, Author, The New RetireMentality "Kudos to Martin Higgins for creating a guidebook to help boomers navigate the largely unchartered territory of Distribution Land. A readable, fun and informative book." --Moshe A. Milevsky, The IFID Centre, York University, Toronto "A must read for anyone within 10 years of retirement or recently retired. I've been a financial advisor for more than twenty-nine years, and I found the content of this book invaluable even at this stage of my career." --Jay Van Beusekom, RHU, LUTCF; President & CEO of Jay Van Beusekom Financial Advisor, LLC
