GET THE MOST OUT OF LIFE



In Live Long and Prosper!, Steve Vernon unveils a new way of thinking that will truly help you live a more happy, healthy, and prosperous life. Based on the latest research and planning strategies typically reserved for large corporations, it will help you answer these important questions:
* Do you have enough money to retire?
* How can you manage your income and expenses so you don't outlive your 401(k) balances?
* How can you invest in your health, so that you won't be wiped out by large medical expenses and are able to live a long, comfortable, and productive life?
* What can you expect from Social Security and Medicare?
* What's the best work/life balance for prosperity and fulfillment?


Live Long and Prosper! will help you move beyond the traditional view of retirement and begin planning for the rest of your life.
