Woodside, CA (PRWEB) December 07, 2012
Ken Fisher, Forbes columnist and Fisher Investments CEO, released his ninth book, Plan Your Prosperity, which focuses on retirement planning for investors of all ages.
It doesn’t matter whether individuals are already well into retirement or just starting a career—in this guide, Ken Fisher helps outline a plan for reaching financial goals and debunks common retirement planning myths. “Many investors, and even some professionals distinguish between financial planning and retirement planning—like they’re two distinct phases, or the two are, inherently, radically different. But in my view, this imagined dichotomy is wrong—this idea you should invest one way for a period of years and then you need a whole separate set of rules upon hitting some milestone”.
Plan Your Prosperity also provides easy-to-follow exercises to help readers better understand their current financial profile. Other key principles outlined include:
- Determining an appropriate investing timeline
- Assessing whether a portfolio can sustainably support future cash flow needs
- Calculating how much to save
- Avoiding typical investor pitfalls
Investors don’t have to be financial gurus to be successful—but they do need a sound plan. This easy-to-understand guide is a critical tool for turning goals into reality.
