More than seventy-eight million baby boomers are pioneering a new life stage characterized by living and working longer, often called the "third stage" of life. A new free ebook, Stop Avoiding Your Retirement Puzzle: 6 Steps to More Effective Communication, by retirement coaches Roberta Taylor and Dorian Mintzer, provides a wake-up call to couples as they approach this critical, "third stage" of life. Taylor and Mintzer outline a 6-step process to effective communication that helps couples successfully navigate this transition.

Fidelity recently released a Couples Retirement Study which indicates that couples aren't communicating about these issues. Kathleen A Murphy, president of Personal Investing at Fidelity notes, "Millions of American couples have worked very hard to save for retirement. However, far too many don't take the time, or have the comfort level, to jointly discuss their plans for the future. "

The steps outlined in the free ebook, "Stop Avoiding Your Retirement Puzzle" enables couples to move forward with this issue. Taylor adds, "When couples are able to communicate effectively and know how to compromise and negotiate, they are less likely to avoid the often difficult and uncomfortable issues related to retirement transition."

"Unlike other information about redefining retirement on the market today," notes Mintzer, "we offer couples a road map to getting on the same page when it comes to their 'what's next' vision."
