June 30 2105: People Tested Publications has just released its latest book in their “What’s the Deal With..?” ® book series. This new book, which deals with issues specifically for women regarding their concerns, strategies and plans for retirement is called “What’s the Deal with Retirement Planning for Women?” The book is authored by noted expert on retirement planning, Marcia A. Mantell, who is a highly sought after speaker and advisor on the topic, and author of the blog, BoomerRetirementBriefs.com.
Jack Tatar, Publisher of People Tested Publications says, “I’m proud and excited to have Marcia write a much needed book for a critical audience as our latest addition to the “What’s the Deal With..?” ® book series. I’ve known of Marcia’s work in this area for years and was thrilled when she committed to writing the book and I believe it fills a much needed void that speaks specifically to women on the topic of financial planning. It’s clear after speaking with Marcia a few times that the needs of women require a different approach to retirement planning and that many women need to make the time and effort to focus on these matters.”
Marcia believes that not only is retirement planning different for women but many times, women are not comfortable discussing or outlining their retirement needs in the detail that’s needed. She goes on to say, “Women are completely comfortable talking about many “M-word” topics: their marriages, motherhood and their mothers, merlots and martinis, mammograms and menopause. But, bring up money and the conversations often screech to a halt. Ask how prepared a woman is for retirement and she can tell you the exact date when she wants to retire, but not how much money she’ll need for a 30-year retirement.”
In this book, Marcia Mantell guides women through the key questions they’ll need to answer before they will be prepared to retire. In What’s the Deal with Retirement Planning for Women?, you’ll get realistic perspectives on retirement in the new era, a treasure trove of resources to get started, and practical examples of how other women are dealing with redesigning and reinventing retirement. While no two women will have the same retirement or financial resources, there are common topics that each woman needs to address.
