The First Generation That Can’t Retire – What Can You Do

I flew up to St. Louis, my old stomping grounds, for an extended weekend.  It was a great trip as I visited with old friends.

One evening their Baby Boomer conversation around the dinner table turned to investing and worries about not being able to retire.  They had been on track until the downturn of 2008.  Now they can’t see any progress in their 401k’s and the hopes of retirement are growing a bit dimmer.

Wil didn’t know what to do.  He didn’t know where to invest because nothing seemed to work.  His stocks were doing nothing, mutual funds the same, real estate a bust and government bonds just as bad.

I fear this may be the first generation that will not be able to retire.

So what can you do?

One option is to take better control of your investing situation.  The most promising area is still the stock market, which has returned on average 8% a year for many decades.  As risky as this sounds, there is no better game in town.

You can learn to play this game much better and increase your odds of success.  You will have to learn a bit more and put some effort into it – but you will be surprised that it is not a huge amount of effort – actually just a reasonable amount.

All you need is a little basic knowledge and a method.

Stock Market For Beginners does just that.  It explains just the basics you need to know in easy to understand ways.  And it outlines a simple, routine method to invest in stocks.  I’ve developed this method and used it myself for many years.

The book is hot off the press.  Right now.

It took ten months to write — to keep it simple — because writing complicated is fast.  But writing simple, well, it’s not so easy.

You may want a copy.  Because your choices seem to be this.  Continue doing what you’re doing that isn’t working so well.  Or invest in a little knowledge and method to greatly increases your odds.

The case for the second option seems compelling, doesn’t it?

Have a nice day – John
