I want to help more people deal with the dual fears of outliving their money and losing their sense of purpose as they leave the workforce.

Andy Raub has seen firsthand the fears and expectations of people preparing for and working through the retirement process. Raub, a financial advisor for more than 35 years, believes the retirement planning industry helps people plan the financial side of retirement but neglects the life-planning side. So he decided to do something about it.

Launching his own next chapter, Raub has authored, "The Encore Curve: Retire with a Life Plan That Excites You and a Money Plan That Lets You Sleep" (, which releases nationally today from Brown Books Publishing Group (

“I want to help more people deal with the dual fears of outliving their money and losing their sense of purpose as they leave the workforce,” says Raub. “I believe that when we reset our perspective and repackage our wisdom, retirement can be a time to repurpose life rather than retreat from it.”

Renowned success coach Jack Canfield, author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, says Raub is spot-on with his book. “I am glad that there are people like Andy in the world who are bringing peace, abundance, and meaning into our lives. Andy is America's Encore Coach!”

The Encore Curve planning process is a contrast to the focus of most retirement planning models that are money and investment driven. In those scenarios, people are told if they save and invest wisely, retirement will be a piece of cake. Raub warns that this approach ignores all the complex changes that occur when someone leaves their work life behind.

“When they stop working, retirees abandon much of their normal habit patterns, they lose key support systems, and they risk losing a primary source of purpose and meaning,” says Raub. “These can be huge stumbling blocks to overcome without coaching and leadership.”

In "The Encore Curve," Raub focuses on the non-money side of retirement as much as the money side. At the heart of his message, Raub believes we all carry a metaphorical backpack around with us. "The Encore Curve" teaches readers how to take off that backpack and selectively choose which wisdom and experiences to carry forward.

“As we go through life, we cram that backpack full of our experiences - all our successes and achievements as well as all our failures and disappointments,” says Raub. “At retirement, our backpack is full and heavy with the history we are lugging around. But who says that we’re required to drag all of that into our future? Rather than spending our retirement reliving past success or resenting old failures, we can learn to move forward into a compelling future.”

“Andy Raub is a successful entrepreneur with a powerful and fulfilling life message,” says Milli Brown, Founder and CEO of Brown Books Publishing Group. “We are proud to include 'The Encore Curve' in the long list of accomplished business books we have published.”
