—NANCY COLLAMER, Public Speaker, Career Coach, and Author of Second-Act Careers: 50+ Ways to Profit Your Passions During Semi-Retirement

When financial planning expert Melissa Phipps decided to quit her 9-to-5 and start her own business, she told herself, "the time is now." It wasn't retirement, but it was the first step. Not long after, she found herself in the middle of a large and unanticipated financial dilemma. And in order to survive it, she had to make some major changes that ultimately came down to one thing: redefining retirement.

The Retirement Rescue Plan will prepare you for retirement in a way that takes you into account—allowing you to define "retirement" in a new, realistic, and exciting way. The goals are simple: work less, earn enough, and be happier than ever. Are you ready to get planning?

  • Assess what makes you happy—it sounds obvious, but when was the last time you took an honest look at what you really wanted?
  • Gain control of your finances by reviewing your savings, expenses and budget with sample worksheets and exercises
  • Generate ideas for continued earnings by considering your unique skills and interests; and find extra inspiration by reading real-life retirement success stories
  • Ensure your security with five methods to avoid common retirement planning mistakes

Nothing compares to the joy and relief you will feel when you find your way from financial despair to a fulfilling future, as you start to enjoy retirement in a way that works for YOU.
