The Art of Retirement
by Gary S. Williams, CFP®, CRPC®, AIF® with foreward by NFL legend Ronnie Lott
What’s your vision of a fulfilling life? How does retirement fit into that picture? I wrote The Art of Retirement specifically to help you answer these questions: to bring your personal vision into focus and to educate and inspire you on a path to more powerful retirement planning.
“Exhaust life!” Those are the words of my friend and football legend Ronnie Lott – and we’d all be well-served to embrace them.
Like a painter standing in front of a blank canvas, your future is limited only by your creativity and the resources at your disposal. Drawing inspiration from the life and art of Michelangelo, this guide is designed to show you how to:
- Gain perspective on what you value most
- Avoid letting short-term emotions lead you to make long-term financial mistakes
- Find true inspiration in real-life stories
- Enhance your understanding of a host of retirement planning and investing topics
- Identify the right kind of advisor to become your trusted partner
Through the lens of both my personal life and experiences (raised by my father and growing up in a blue-collar, welfare-dependent home) and my many years of experience as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, I’ll share my knowledge to help you see that creating your own life's masterpiece is within your grasp.
Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets, and diversification cannot guarantee that any objective or goal will be achieved.
Investing in alternative investments may not be suitable for all investors and involves special risks, such as risk associated with leveraging the investment, adverse market forces, regulatory changes, and illiquidity. There is no assurance that the investment objective will be attained.
