Best wishes for 2018
Thank you! You have made this website emotionally very rewarding for me.
When you write a book, readers don’t get back to you personally. But with this website, you have indeed got back to me. Some of you have submitted comments. I really appreciate that, as I know it’s tough psychologically to make public comments. More have contacted me privately, with comments like “Love it!”, “You could have been talking to me!” and “Don’t stop, just keep writing, it’s very helpful!” Thank you very much – this is extremely gratifying, and I appreciate it and am encouraged by it enormously. I’m glad this has already helped some of you in specific ways.
Additional thanks to those who have allowed me to interview you, or whose stories I have cited. Your perspectives have directly influenced our readers.
This will be my last post of 2017. We’ll skip December 29, and normal service will be resumed on January 5.
I wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2018.
I have written about retirement planning before and some of that material also relates to topics or issues that are being discussed here. Where relevant I draw on material from three sources: The Retirement Plan Solution (co-authored with Bob Collie and Matt Smith, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2009), my foreword to Someday Rich (by Timothy Noonan and Matt Smith, also published by Wiley, 2012), and my occasional column The Art of Investment in the FT Money supplement of The Financial Times, published in the UK. I am grateful to the other authors and to The Financial Times for permission to use the material here.
