Retirement planning isn’t something that I paid much attention to when I was younger. Some of my jobs offered a variety of retirement planning options from 401K plans to pensions and some did not. I generally picked one of the lowest amounts available to contribute and then forgot about it. I was more worried about paying today’s bills than planning for 40 years from now.

Retirement Planning Without Losing Your Mind

As I got older, I started hearing friends talk about their 401K plans and their investments. I started wondering if maybe that was something I should deal with but there was always something else to think about.  Now that I’m getting closer to the retirement age, I’ve started thinking more and more about retirement and whether or not I’ll have enough money to enjoy my retirement. I began to think that maybe I started retirement income planning a bit too late.

Marty and I have simple plans for our retirement. We don’t plan on joining a country club or taking a bunch of vacations to see the world. We want to enjoy the rest of our time at home relaxing and enjoying the country life. I want a hammock in the front yard and he wants to spend more time fishing in the stream down the road. I want to take long walks on the beach and enjoy nature. We don’t want to worry about our retirement.

There is a public television show, book and DVD available to help take the anxiety out of retirement. After watching Don’t Worry, Retire Happy! by Tom Hegna, I’ve realized that I don’t need to worry about retiring. Don’t Worry, Retire Happy! by Tom Hegna is a brand new philosophy for retirement. The program’s goal is to provide peace of mind about your retirement and it really helped me see retirement planning in a whole new light. I’d never even heard of social security claiming strategies before.

I had always thought I was fairly knowledgeable about retirement planning but Tom Hegna brought up so many things that I hadn’t thought about before. I learned that most working Americans HAVE the time, financial resources and courage to retire happy (learn how with the 7 steps in Don’t Worry, Retire Happy™). Best of all, I learned it in a way that I really understood. Tom Hegna presented this information in an easy to understand, non technical way. He used examples that I can relate to and made the whole retirement planning process make sense. I can define my own retirement, the way I want it.

If you’re looking for information on retirement income planning presented in an interesting and down to earth way, you really need to tune into your public television station to watch this. You can support your local station and pledge to receive a copy of the DVD or book and DVD.
