I can take action since now on my young time.

I can take action since now on my young time.
Saving, Investments, are excellent points for retirements, having many resources, also is excellent advice, but I totally agree with the creator of this book, investments are the best decision you take on life for retirement because in some years in forward, your investments will grow. I think that is smart.

Time to get serious

I have been self-employed for a good amount of time and never really put much thought into retirement. As a small business, I was more worried about the day-to-day rather than planning for the future. I definitely regret not doing more, sooner. Now I have a plan for retirement and how to make the most of what I can do now. I am starting a new job soon and will be using what I have learned to plan for a future that will benefit myself and my family. It's never too late!

If only!

My personal experience confirms this.

The importance of retirement planning increases with age.

A great deal of information is covered in this audiobook about retirement income, pensions, investments, life insurance, and health care planning.

Having read this, you realize how important it is to plan and prepare for retirement. You need a plan, discipline to follow it, and be ready for the sharp curves that life will throw at you.

You should listen to this audiobook if you plan to maximize your retirement income.

Having never really understood how pensions worked, I particularly enjoyed the chapter on pensions.

I felt better about the possibilities after listening to this audiobook.

Listening to this is not age- or youth-restricted.

It is a big issue in the UK right now.

Retirement savings are crucial.

Put an end to the scramble! Now is the time to listen!

It's not just money, it's peace of mind.

A great book to get anyone started on their wealth-building journey. Focusing on young people's investments has long been a passion of mine, to prevent the younger generations from making the same mistakes I did. Having studied and written about similar strategies, I can assure you that the writers of Retirement Planning have put together a solid outline for novice investors to build from. If followed closely, they can have a fantastic investment journey, and, hopefully, an early retirement. I cannot recommend this one highly enough! The narrator is to be commended as well for an engaging, soothing performance that keeps your attention. Listen to it, put it on your bookshelf, and gift it to a friend!

Detailed and revealing information.

A single caveat: this is very much written for the American market. So for the British reader, you won't hear anything about ISAs or the like, but rather their US versions.

But this doesn't mean that it isn't an interesting and informative read. I'm glad I listened to it, as it's given me plenty to reflect on in my final decade before retirement.

Things to consider

plenty if food for thought. I'm still fairly young so never looked into pensions and had no understanding of it whatsoever.

this book covers everything from basic pension funds, to impact of your contributions, early retirement, savings, withdrawals etc. this book will help you maximise the pot for your retirement!
