Past generations of retirees were expected to go home to the rocking chair. But the baby boomer generation created the health food industry and energized the fitness market. When it comes to retirement, baby boomers are going to want to have a lifestyle that includes good healthy fun.

"Boomers are not stuck at 30-something, but they continue to feel younger than they really are." That's according to a 2004 research report by AARP titled "Baby Boomers Envision Retirement ll." It's another reason Bill Losey, America's Retirement Strategist, and initiator of National Retirement Planning Month, wants baby boomers ready and able to enjoy their retirement.

To inspire boomers to create the life they want, Bill has invited Ann Fry, CEO and Head Boomer of It's Boomertime (, to speak Thursday, July 19th at 10 AM EST in a free teleseminar on strategies boomers can take to create the life they want. "Ann inspires others to be courageous and adventurous while laughing and having fun at the same time. She has a sense of humor that is contagious and obvious in her title "Head Boomer." Ann chose that title because she was born on January 1, 1946, the first day of the boomer generation".

Bill believes that humor is an important part of all phases of life and as we plan for retirement, it becomes even more important. You can see Bill's own particular brand of humor at Perfect HarMoney where his alter ego, Dr. Ken I Retyre, sings such financial classics as The 401K Croon and My Bills Are Past Due. His movie, The Baby Boomer Retirement Movie is a short clip which asks amusing nostalgic questions and the answers reveal if you are a baby boomer. While Baby Boomers want to have fun, they are still serious about planning for retirement.

"At my seminars across the country, I know there are at least 5 questions my listeners will ask: 1. When can I retire? 2. How much money will I need to retire? 3. How long should I plan to live for? 4. How much money can I take out? 5. How long will my money last?" says Bill.

Bill will be addressing these concerns in his upcoming book Retire in A Weekend! The Baby Boomers Guide to Making Work Optional will be released in November 2007. In the meantime, as part of National Retirement Planning Month, and his mission to educate everyone about retirement planning, Bill wants baby boomers to have a positive outlook on their financial picture.

A more optimistic view of the economic future for boomers is presented by Jeff Thredgold, ( Economist, Futurist, President of Thredgold Economic Associates, and author of ECONOMERICA: Why the American Economy is Alive and Well… and What That Means to Your Wallet (Wiley, June 2007). Bill will interview Jeff on Friday, July 20th at 12 PM EST in a free teleseminar. Bill says that Jeff is a refreshing change from the doom and gloom you frequently hear about in the media.

More information on these educational teleseminars is available at National Retirement Planning Month.
