San Francisco, CA (PressExposure) August 05, 2014 -- Creative Retirement for Women, a new book, is a reaction to male scare tactics claiming we can't retire. It's a reaction to all the gloom and doom advice from writers who are not retired themselves. Now that women will live 30 or more years into retirement, future planning must be different from the men.
Women designing their own retirement based on their personality traits and interests is a primary focus of this book. Your interests are designed into your daily planning to increase your social involvement and self-expression. These involvements are vital to greater quality of life and longevity for women.
All women planning for retirement in America are concerned about possible pitfalls. As a marriage counselor, the author discusses cooperative planning with your partner. If you have some idea of what to expect from your partner when he confronts age milestones, you'll be prepared rather than undermined. You will understand the male point of view and how to "manage" the relationship.
The health chapter alerts us to the cost of poor health and encourages better lifestyle habits. The financial chapters offer a view of the importance of income streams rather than a huge savings. Even the sections on investments have a female approach by putting safety and sustainability first. The issue of downsizing and relocation are addressed with emphasis on your future budget. If you're unprepared, this planning guide was designed for you. Since many are not ready financially, the emotional appeal and social benefits of engaging work in retirement is discussed. How to use existing skills and re-training for maximum job benefit is outlined.
The book empowers women on different levels to take control and question the one size fits all retirement of the past. Along with the book, free retirement consultation for life is provided.The author is a psychotherapist with 35 years experience who is personally devoted to his readers.
