Publisher's Summary

Retirement Planning for Smart People is a book that looks beyond finances to the preparation that matters just as much as setting up a budget and saving for retirement.

You have a new life to look forward to in retirement. Your kids are grown up, probably out of the house, living their lives, and you are free to travel. You are free to see how you and your spouse like each other after a lifetime of living together. Some couples find it is better to be semi-retired versus around each other 24/7. Other couples jump right into spending their time together and enjoying the retirement years.

No matter what is best for you and your situation, you will learn how to look at retirement with a full and open perspective.

In this book you will learn:

  • How to avoid retirement mistakes
  • How to retire comfortably for the rest of your life
  • How to determine whether you are emotionally prepared to retire
  • How to age gracefully in retirement

As an added bonus you will also learn:

  • Whether you want to be an expat for a little while or the remaining years of your life
  • The best cities to live in for affordability and amenities
  • The secrets to investing in retirement
  • If you should retire now, or wait a few years

So what are you waiting for?

Take action, not now, but right now, and download your copy, today!

    "great book"

    I'm decades away from retirement but looking at this book reminded me of my grandfather who passed away a couple of months ago. He was really living the life in his final years playing bingo, exercising and stuff and a lot of the stuff in the book acknowledged those things as advice on things to do after retirement. Plenty of financial advice too and it is told in like a story format which paints the world of retirement as something to get excited about. Just have to crack some Math and the book assists on that. Nice!

    "Useful and informative"

    This left me with the same motivation and coaching I need to get my financial act together. I am debt free and now have an awesome plan for my retirement. I am living my dream life of pouring into people now. I am growing in relationship with God, my wife, and my children. I want to plan financially and train my kids to be good stewards...so that I can continue to live my dream of pouring into others.

    Any additional comments?

    I am impressed on the audio book totally. True that not all have/has a smart planning when it comes to retirement. Everyone must take time to listen to this book.

    "Be smart and retire well"
    If you could sum up Retire in three words, what would they be?

    Cleverly retire well


    What does Michael Hatak bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is really interesting and made it seem like we were acquaintances! Friendly voice and quite nice.


    Any additional comments?

    I am coming of age in which I need to plan out my retirement! I definitely want to enjoy it but also retire smartly since my social security checks won't be as much as my regular paychecks. I found this book helpful and had alot of tips in making sure you retire comfortably. Good audiobook!
