Older Boomers were hit especially hard by the Great Recession. A large number lost their jobs and homes. Their 401Ks were ravaged and there isn’t time to make it up. Many now despair that they will never be able to retire. A new guide addresses these issues, providing practical information and proven strategies for Boomers, showing them how they can overcome their financial setbacks to still enjoy a rewarding retirement.
This innovative book expands the perspective of Boomers whose retirement plans were devastated by the Recession. Authored by Al Kernek, “How 50+ Baby Boomers Can Still Retire” offers real-world advice and information to older Boomers faced with revising their retirement plans. It presents alternatives and approaches that have likely been overlooked. Free resources available to help retiring Boomers are also covered. Readers gain an enhanced understanding of available retirement options. The book leaves shell-shocked older Boomers with hope and revitalized excitement about their retirement opportunities.
“This guide is based on my own experience and those of thousands of Baby Boomers in their fifties and sixties who have spent sleepless nights trying to figure out how they can still retire after having the financial rug pulled out from under them,” states Kernek. “Although personal finances are discussed, it is not a financial planning document. Rather, the book focuses on practical options for comfortably retiring based on what assets and income you have left. Readers will discover that they can still enjoy a fulfilling retirement regardless of the financial destruction wrought by the Great Recession.”
The book urges Boomers to look at retirement in a new light, focusing on the things that are really important as we get older – good friends, family, health and fulfilling experiences – rather than defining retirement in terms of wealth and possessions. It offers a variety of means to supplement retirement income. Practical ways to cut expenses without sacrificing the quality of everyday living are also presented. In short, it shows older Boomers how to “make lemonade out of lemons.”
“My goal is to expand awareness among Boomers of the variety of retirement options available to them,” adds Kernek. “Within a few hours, Boomers can piggyback on the wisdom gained by others just like themselves who have overcome financial setbacks to enjoy fulfilling retirements.”
The book may be purchased through Amazon and popular retail outlets for $14.95. It is also available for just $9.99 in downloadable electronic format for Kindle users and those using eReader devices compatible with the Apple iBookstore format. Orders can be placed directly from the author’s website, http://www.BabyBoomerLifeboat.com as well.
