My thoughts on RetirementQuest ~~ 

Okay, I am going to be perfectly honest here. I have not thought much about a retirement plan. I know I should, I should have done something a long time ago. My husband got a really late start getting his higher education degrees and was in school a long, long time, we had 4 small children, money was extremely tight ~ you know, excuses, excuses. And now, I try not to think about it because I know we are not prepared ~ head in the sand kind of thinking.

This book got me thinking about what we need to do to get prepared for our retirement. We are coming at it kind of late in the game but any kind of plan is better than no plan, right? And I checked out the RetirementQuest website and there is a lot of useful information there that I will be looking at as we start to get a plan in place.

The author states at one point ~ 'This book is intended for mature readers who have already achieved a reasonable level of financial security and responsibility, and for younger people who are actively in a wealth building mode.' I couldn't have said it any better. You should take a look at RetirementQuest!
