We’re thrilled to announce, Retirement Secrets is here! After much hard work and a bit of delay (thanks coronavirus!) Retirement Secrets: Keys to Retiring Happy, Healthy and Free is now available on Amazon.com!
A follow up to the best-selling book Money Secrets: Keys to Smart Investing, Retirement Secrets is not a “how to” save, invest, or make your money grow book. Instead, it will teach you how you can successfully retire smart, be vibrant, and enjoy the thrill of the ride.
What’s Retirement Secrets All About?
First and foremost, Retirement Secrets is a book on how to enjoy life in retirement. Bestselling and award-winning author, Wealth Legacy Institute’s own Kim Curtis goes past the glutted field of retirement books focused on the finish line—the day you retire—to reinvent how life after retirement is lived, experienced, and understood.
It starts with answering:
- What happens after your last day of full-time employment?
- What do you plan on doing the rest of your life?
- What is your next adventure?
It goes on to explore the secrets that will bring together all the pieces on how to live a happy, healthy, and free retirement in every aspect of your life—relationships, money, physical and mental health, as well as your lifestyle in retirement.

This book reveals why your retirement becomes the beginning of a new you, with activities to help you set goals for this stage of life, real-life stories from other retirees, and planning strategies to help you transition into retirement.
Here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside:
It’s Not Just About The Money
The key to achieving an active satisfying retirement involves a great deal more than having adequate resources. It’s about finding your purpose and actively enjoying your life!
Making the Transition
Retirement is more than just your last day of work—it’s a major life transition—financially, emotionally, and psychologically. Make sure you’re ready.
The “right time” to retire is different for everyone. There’s early retirement, full-time retirement, and maybe you’ve heard of part-time retirement or “pre-tirement”? Our retirement readiness quiz will help you figure out if you’re ready to retire in the first place.

A Note From the Author
Over the years I’ve worked with hundreds of individuals and couples building financial plans and constructing investment portfolios for retirement. However, in observing clients as they progressed from saving for retirement to living in retirement, it became evident that a successful retirement life is not only about the money.
Retirement more often fails for non-financial reasons. Think about that for a moment. Money—as important as it is—is a means to an end, but it provides no guarantee of retirement happiness.
That’s why this book covers the other side of retirement. Your stories of joy, vitality, and adventure remind us that the little things are often the big things and that what we focus on expands. Together we can transform the meaning of money and retirement.
