How to ensure the best possible retirement your money can buy

(Also read the following related article: "How much money is enough for you to be happy?")

Does the prospect of retirement freak you out? Is there life after work?

Chartered Wealth Solutions Director Kim Potgieter addresses these questions, amongst many others, in her book “Retiremeant: Get The Most Meaning from Your Money”.

With her book Potgieter aims to encourage South Africans to see retirement as a new chapter in life. You are not retiring from something but to something!

There are many books on retirement that focuses on ensuring you have enough money to retire on. “Retiremeant” is not one of them. Instead it focuses on how your money can make your dreams come true.

Don’t leave the creation of the best life you can live up to chance, says Potgieter in “Retiremeant”.

Potgieter shares actual stories of clients she has advised. She looks at the whole picture - work, money, play, purpose, health, giving back, relationships and learning – and gives advice on keeping these in balance for the best second half of life.

Filled to the brim with practical exercises; “Retiremeant: Get The Most Meaning from Your Money” combines life planning with financial planning in order to realise a meaningful retirement.

Listen to the audio in which we interview Kim Potgieter on her book, “Retiremeant: Get The Most Meaning from Your Money”.
