Retirement  -- It’s Not Just About the Money
How To Have Fun, Keep Your Brain Alert, and Make Extra Money After You Retire


If retirement is ONLY about having a BIG nest egg, "that's boring, does nothing healthy for your brain, and can worry some people to death," says Susan Klopfer. She asserts the best retirement plan focuses on keeping an active mind and finding meaningful things to do. Being happy, finding ways to earn extra money and keeping your mind alert has the biggest payoff potential for the person who is retired; this is her book’s major theme. Anger, worry and fear do nothing for retirees, but make them sick, says Klopfer. The retired journalist walks three miles each day, a new habit she picked up after moving to Cuenca, Ecuador as an expat. She belongs to a local writer’s club and gets up at 5 a.m. each day to work on her writing projects. Susan and her husband, Fred, are learning to speak Spanish and enjoy discovering new facts South American culture. “We have it all, as expats who keep physically and mentally active. We attend symphonies, theatre and enjoy local museums and lectures. We take short trips around the country and listen to jazz at a local jazz club. And we pick out our fresh fruits and vegetables in local markets, when they are fresh from the fields.” Klopfer says the decision to move away from her country of birth “was our best financial plan, after losing our retirement shirts when the stock market fell.” The author tells readers, “This is NOT a book about traditional financial planning and building a big nest egg before retirementt, but it is a book that holds true to its title.” She presents dozens of workable ideas and supporting links in each of the three categories: having fun, keeping alert, and making spare money. “I want readers to stop worrying and start working on plans they can achieve, while staying active and happy in retirement.”
