In an engaging and urgent tone, Black successfully opens reader’s eyes to the realities of retirement in America today. Happily Ever After: Retirement Doesn’t Have to Be Just a Fairy Tale, teaches retirees strategies that could save them millions, and could teach them how to dodge constant financial gouging. “Wake up and smell the prune juice,” says Jim Black in his new book. “One third of the working population expects to retire far past 65 or never plans to retire.”
Every financial advisor has an angle. Black teaches readers about the lies that every financial advisor is telling them.
This book was written with the current retiree in mind. It is one of the first books to recognize that once a person gets that last paycheck from their employer (the last paycheck for the rest of their life), it is important to start seeing money differently.
“Using your hearing aid to take orders at a drive-thru, or inviting your grandkids to visit you at a homeless shelter is no one’s version of happily ever after,” said Black “There are strategies every retiree can use to avoid poverty in their golden years.”
One of the biggest fears of most retirees is running out of money before death. That fear can be greatly reduced by following the simple, easy to implement strategies that Black shares in this book.
Retirees have spent 40 years or more accumulating assets for retirement. Yet a single down year in the stock market can change your retirement forever. Most retirees think that they need to choose between growth and income, or risk and return, but Black will show readers that those options are not mutually exclusive.
Using real life examples and showcasing his signature sense of humor, Black has created a process that helps retirees overcome their basic fears. He has done this in a manner that anyone, regardless of their financial sophistication, should be able to implement for themselves.
By reading and implementing these strategies, readers will greatly increase their chances of retiring on their own terms.
Black has been helping people retire for over 25 years, and has been seeing a lot of distressing trends in recent years. Retirement expert Jim Black has been featured in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and on “Americas Premier Experts” (As seen on ABC, CNN, Fox, NBC and CBS). Jim is the bestselling author of “Happily Ever After; Retirement Doesn’t Have to Be Just a Fairy Tale,” the Quilly award winning book for “Excellence in education and enlightenment.”
