Publisher Comments:

Not so long ago, the most difficult part of retiring was deciding what you were going to do with all your free time. Today, retirement has become more complex than anyone could have ever imagined. Fluctuations in financial markets coupled with the fact that we'll all be living longer, more active retirement lifestyles have many of us asking, "How am I going to pay for my retirement?"

For four decades, author Paul Merriman has helped and watched people manage their money—both before and during retirement. Over the years, working as a hands-on money manager has given him an enormous amount of practical experience with real people in real situations. Now, in Live It Up without Outliving Your Money!, Merriman distills what he has learned into these pages to help you create a portfolio that will fulfill your unique retirement needs.

Based on Merriman's popular retirement workshops, Live It Up without Outliving Your Money! shows you how to create and maintain the perfect retirement portfolio. From determining what assets have the highest probability of giving you the returns you need, to controlling taxes and expenses, the simple strategies outlined within these pages will help you regain confidence in your retirement portfolio.

Filled with real-world stories and practical insights, as well as helpful charts, graphs, and tables, this accessible guide will:

  • Motivate you to get into action and improve your financial situation
  • Allow you to tailor a financial plan for retirement that takes into account the right amount of risk for you
  • Provide useful tools to keep your emotions from derailing your investments
  • Examine multiple strategies for withdrawing money once you've retired
  • Help you find and hire a financial advisor whose interests are the same as yours

In the coming years, more than seventy million people will enter retirement. Some of them will have to worry about how long their money will last, while others will enjoy the retirement they've planned and prepared for. If you want to make sure your golden years aren't your lean years, follow the proven guidance of Live It Up without Outliving Your Money!
