Retire Crazy Good

Do Things That Inspire You!

Grab your cup and join us…

Hi, my name is Grant. Thanks for visiting

Millions of Americans age 50+ struggle with regrets. Typically underserved and ignored by most financial advisors, their dreams are at risk because they lack know-how and resources.

Many believe they’ll have to continue working until they drop.

Instead, I believe you can explore, plan, and do inspiring things.Grant and Dana

You can learn how to:

Attain the know-how

Acquire the resources

Do things that inspire you


Why explore, plan, and do?

Everyone has some degree of control over their attitude and activities. That belief has helped me define and solve problems for most of my life. But when my father came to live with us in his mid-eighties, I felt powerless to help him overcome his struggle with regrets.

You see, my dad’s attitude left him feeling like he could not address the disappointments in his life. Thus, he had many unresolved regrets! Sadly, there was little time left to help Dad before his life clock ran out.

That feeling of powerlessness served as our emotional spark, inspiring a huge blaze of activities devoted to answering this key question:

What do you need to do now to enjoy life while you still can?

Inspired to answer important questions

Consider these questions and you’ll gain a sense of why I want to show you how to explore, plan, and do things that inspire you:

Why do 70% of Baby Boomers (millions of individuals and couples typically ignored by most financial advisors) think they have to work until they drop?

Not receiving the know-how and resources from financial advisors is one issue, but what else prevents those age 50 and older from finding practical yet fun ways to do things that inspire them?

For those who continue to postpone doing things they love, what joy and opportunities will they have sacrificed?

Why do so many think that it is difficult if not impossible to attain the know-how and acquire the resources to do things that inspire them?

Candid answers to inspire you

Within the pages of Retire Crazy Good, you’ll find our candid answers. Also, when you join, you’ll receive updates that address other important questions, including:

 How can pre- and post-retirees do the things that inspire them even if they have not saved the amount specified by those oh-so-smart-financial calculators?

 Where do you find the know-how and boldness to make the hard choices and to take the necessary action steps?

What does it really take to create a plan, work that plan, and keep following the steps without burning yourself out?

Inspiration and answers for your unique situation

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by these kinds of questions, don’t worry! My research found plenty of potential answers. And we learned even more as we applied those answers to do things that inspire us.

We hope you’ll join the quest, get routine doses of inspiration, and see if those answers might be a good fit for your unique situation. New articles are usually posted each week.
