Your Next Chapter

You are on the threshold of Your Next Chapter. Hopefully, it will be an exciting and satisfying one. This book will help you navigate the unfamiliar waters on both an emotional and financial level. Written by women for women, Your Next Chapter focuses on the issues you need to address so you can have a sustainable and rewarding future.

YOUR NEXT CHAPTER provides important information to help you make the necessary decisions you now face. To illustrate these concerns, the authors present detailed scenarios of four hypothetical women in various situations in different geographic locations as they approach retirement. Among the topics examined:

• What retirement means for you

• How you should revise your investment and estate plans

• How your emotional and physical health will be impacted by retirement

• Why your planning should be flexible and adaptable as your needs and desires change

Financial planner Alexandra Armstrong and psychologist Mary R. Donahue, the authors, have worked with women for decades helping them make sound decisions about their personal and financial lives. Their previous bestselling book, On Your Own: A Widow’s Passage to Emotional and Financial Wellbeing, is now in its 5th edition. In this latest collaboration, Alex and Mary again help women move successfully through a time of major transition in their lives.

“I want every woman in her 50s or 60s to read this book because the challenges start early, and it’s best to be educated and prepared. Instead of being paralyzed by fear, the solutions are to face up to realities — both financial and psychological — and get good trusted advice for this next stage of life. The place to start is Your Next Chapter.”
