Americans are now living for up to thirty years after retiring. Are you ready? In What If You Live? author and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional, Paul M. Gargano, offers advice, investment strategies, and motivation for taking charge of your future. In this financial guide, Paul shares his philosophies on investing. He views the investment world as if it were one very large ocean: calm at times, violent at times, but always unpredictable. The key to wise investing is determining which boats best fit the risk and goals of each individual. By using a "multiple boat philosophy," retirees (and retirees-to-be) are more likely to weather any type of market situation. With the changes in today's economy, some of the old rules no longer apply; you can't be too prepared for retirement. With simple strategies, thought-provoking questions, and empowering knowledge, What If You Live? motivates you to start preparing for your future now. With proper planning, you may significantly increase the likelihood that you will be able to live a comfortable lifestyle in your retirement and twilight years, no matter what the market does.
