Prime Time Makeover
How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life By Dr. Cynthia Barnett
Dr. Cynthia Barnett has written a must-read guide for anyone retired or close to retirement. The title "Prime Time Makeover" makes vividly clear that retirement is the prime time of a person's life, and Barnett wants to help you make sure it is absolutely the best time. Dr. Barnett dissembles any fears or concerns about retirement by providing guidance, information, and a great deal of enthusiasm to encourage you in making your retirement years enjoyable and fulfilling.
"Prime Time Makeover" is more than just another book about how to plan financially for retirement. The book offers several resources from a financial perspective, but just as importantly, it discusses how to plan your time during retirement so once you retire you are not bored or left feeling you were only valuable when you were working. Barnett dispels the fear of boredom that suddenly having thirty years of future free time might bring by showing how retirement can be a meaningful experience. She stresses the importance of beginning to plan before you retire so you know how you want to spend your retirement years. No reason exists for boredom during retirement. The prime time years are ones for positive change, growth, and self-fulfillment.
Every person about to retire should read this book. Children should buy it for their parents, and companies should include it as a parting gift to their retirees. Even if you are young and just starting out in your career, reading this book will be of immense value to you as you consider the greater purpose of your job, not just to pay today's bills but to provide financial security for your future so your prime time years will be fulfilling. "Prime Time Makeover" will truly help you make the rest of your life, the best of your life!
