Dave Bernard is a California born and raised author and blogger with an extensive 30 year career in Silicon Valley. He has written more than 300 blogs for US News & World On Retirement and his personal blog Retirement – Only the Beginning.
Some years ago Dave began what would prove to be an on-going search to find and create a meaningful fun retirement. While he discovered plenty of information on the financial side of retirement planning, what was sorely missing was useful hands-on guidance to prepare for the non-financial aspect. What can you personally do to make the most of your retired days? Believing preparing for how to live retirement is just as important as having enough money he focuses his blogging on retirement planning from a non-financial perspective.
Candid feedback from thousands of reader has given him a unique glimpse into the realities and challenges that all retirees will ultimately face, inspiring his book I Want To Retire! – Essential Considerations for the Retiree to Be.
His other books include Are you Just Existing and Calling it a Life? and Navigating the Retirement Jungle.
Dave was a contributing writer for the books 65 Things to do when you Retire (“Positive Aging – Old is the New Young”) as well as 65 Things to do when you Retire – TRAVEL (“Travel to Discover your Family Heritage”).
