Win the Retirement Game

Joe Casey

Many people discover that their money is better prepared for retirement than they are. Why? Because it’s easy to think of retirement planning as solely a financial matter. Financial planning is a left-brain process. It’s quantitative, linear, and logical.

But deciding how to invest your time takes a different mindset. It’s a right-brain process. It’s qualitative, non-linear, and intuitive. It takes imagination.

Today, retirement can last decades. It’s a period of renewal, reinvention, and personal growth—and it requires a whole new approach to retirement planning.

Win the Retirement Game guides you through nine obstacles people face when they retire. From Boredom and Uncertainty to the disorientation of Drifting, you’ll learn how to face each one with the right set of tools and craft a specific strategy to overcome it.

Are you ready to design and live your unique next life? Tap into these research-based solutions and get started today.
