It's my pleasure to offer you two of my best resources, The Ultimate Retirement Resource Guide and the Retirement Visualization Guide.  My goal is to help you envision, plan for, and ultimately enjoy the best retirement possible, and these two tools are essential elements to help you do just that.

Retirement Visualization Guide

The Retirement Visualization Guide (3rd Edition) is designed to be used in tandem with the book Design Your Dream Retirement: How to Envision, Plan For, and Enjoy the Best Retirement Possible.  You can use the guide on its own, but you’ll get maximum benefit by working through the guide while you read the book.

Retirement Visualization Guide cover thumbnailThis guide will help you envision what your retirement might look like.  It will help you brainstorm possibilities and clarify your values and priorities.  The way you answer the questions in this guide will also help you gain clarity on issues such as how much money you will need to support the lifestyle you wish to have, the best places for you to move (if you are thinking of moving), and how you’ll spend your leisure time.  It will help you define who you’ll be during your Renaissance years!

For couples, this guide will help you align with each other on your desires and goals.

    Though I enjoy your work there is one thing missing[or maybe I missed it] that is extremely important to retirees and that is an affordable gay place to retire. That being gay housing for 55yo and older. Being 64yo I was shocked to learn that there wasn't a lot of places for single gays to retire to that were affordable. Most gays my age are not wealthy and have very little income[SS and pension]. Are there any information for us seniors about affordable gay housing. Most elder gays have to go back in the closet to live in cheaper housing that are straight only. I'm lucky to have cheap apartment and a gay landlord. I would like to live in a gay neighborhood with gay services but the closest one is 50 miles away. I feel that this topic/topics should be addressed. Take care and HUGS. P.S. Start with the organization called SAGE. Their info is alarming about gay elders.

      Hi George,

      Thank you for your comment, and I apologize for the delay in response. I've recently done another search for low-income, affordable LGBT retirement homes. A couple new ones have recently opened, so now there are four open and one under construction.

      These facilities are government-subsidized and generally have (low) income requirements for entry. Most, if not all, are fully occupied and have waiting lists. The demand clearly exceeds supply.

      Hi Bernie,

      Thanks for your comment and for visiting this web site.

      Not everyone is in to hobbies, although that is a very broad category. The key is to find ways to fill your life with things that you are interested in and passionate about. This may include the creative arts (writing, art, music, theatre, etc.), volunteering or anything service-based, traveling, or so much more. There are hundreds of possibilities to keep you from becoming bored and unfulfiilled.

      I don't know how much reading you have done on this web site yet, but here are three articles that may be of interest:
