REWIREMENT: Rewiring The Way You Think About Retirement!

You’ve been dutifully putting aside money—the earlier you start saving for retirement the better—but what about retirement income planning? How can you stretch your limited savings to last through the decades of your retirement? Retirement income planning is really a different beast than saving for retirement. It really takes a different mindset. However, switching mindsets from a saving to a spending mentality can be difficult due to a number of behavioral finance biases and misconceptions. The goal of this book is to help you overcome those behavioral finance issues to have a more successful financial future.
