Ken Mahoney's book, A GPS for Your Retirement first piqued my interest when he discussed serial retirement - the process of retiring, getting "itchy" to do something else, and then going back to work, to retire again, rinse and repeat; this is something that many of my friends and I had already discussed - we don't like sitting around doing nothing. Upon reading those words, I knew this was the book for me.
The chapters on probate and estate planning were a real eye opener, and showed me how to avoid the trials and tribulations that my family went through when my grandmother passed away. I will definitely be using the strategies suggested by Ken Mahoney in order to alleviate that headache for my family.
All in all, from picking up hobbies that generate income - something I already happily participate in, all the way through the revocable trusts, this book is a must read for anyone who wants to get started on planning for their retirement, believes they are ready to retire, or for someone who simply wants to put their mind more at ease that they aren't as behind as they thought they were.
What sets Mahoney's work apart from other books on the subject is his enthusiasm for helping people figure out not only what they can do now to have a happier retirement, but also how they can keep earning money well into their "golden years." His approach helps the reader hedge against unexpected events like the stock market crash in 2007. He also encourages readers to diversify and avoid relying on company pension plans and Social Security as a retirement safety net.
Having read a number of financial advice books, one of the things I appreciated about Mahoney's approach was that it did not assume I had thousands to invest. He seemed to understand the real finances that people with children and parents to take care of think about. I'm no longer concerned about robbing from my daughter's education fund to pay for my retirement or asking her to support me when I retire. He offers realistic advice on how to reduce debt now and how to determine what you will need for the future.
Mahoney's book is also written in language that almost anyone can understand. Instead of a dry discussion of stocks, bonds and annuities, he offers real world comparisons that the average person can understand. With taxes going up, his book helped me understand the tax advantages of an IRA and how I could invest now to save money on last year's taxes.
I highly recommend this book!
Ken Mahoney doesn't put forward a 'get rich scheme' but favours an approach that teaches you how to achieve funds and more importantly how to continue to ensure that the process continues long into life after work.
Strategy is the key and the beauty of this book is that it leads the reader on a step by step journey. Its a real learning curve and I highly recommend it to anybody, especially those of you who are worried about or considering retirement.
I intend to refer to this work time and time again and plan for my future!
