Navigating the Retirement Jungle

“You have done a super job. The book is readable, easy to absorb in one or two sittings and covers all the topics that a pre-retiree is thinking about. ” Bob at Satisfying Retirement

Writing LoveBeingRetired, I am uncovering and sharing what I believe is useful information to help us all better navigate the jungle that is retirement planning. If you do not plan, it will not happen the way you want.

To summarize the journey so far, I created a short book covering some important lessons learned:

* How to evaluate when you can afford to retire

* What is the real cost of building that nest egg beyond what you need

* Guidelines to living a frugal yet fulfilling retirement

* Accepting aging

* Where to find inspiration in living daily retired life

* Tips on staying healthy so you can enjoy your retirement life

* How to identify and pursue your passion

“Thank you for the very informative e-book! It is very simple, straight forward and comprehensive. I would consider this a must read for all planning to retire.”

Enjoy the book and enjoy the journey.

    • Good morning Kathleen and thank you for reaching out to me. Sorry for the delay responding – my wife and I were hiding away on a beach in Cabo del Sol for the past week.

    Thanks in advance. – Dennis

  12. I’m wanting to retire, but the unknown has a strangle hold on me. What will I do with my time? My life has always been planned out for me. At nine I got a paper route, and have had a “job” for the 50+ years following. Making my life planned out for me. I do not want to set on the couch “eating Bon-bons”.

    Can your e-book answer some questions?

    I would love to read it

  13. Dear Dave,
    I would love receiving your e-book! I am looking forward to retirement soon and I am very sure it would be a great help to me and I also plan to share it with my sisters who are retired.

  14. Dave,

    I’m just 90 days from retiring and am trying to get the ship in order. There is a lot more to do than I expected just to get ready. Now I’m wondering what is next and what have I forgotten to do.

    Looking forward to your e-book.

  15. I’m planning my escape from the job I’ve had for the last 22 years. Please send me a copy of Navigating the Retirement Jungle. I hope it has a chapter on melding a new retirement with a spouse that has been retired for over 10 years. Thanks in advance!
