Retirement Planning No Longer Needs to be a Daunting Task

A leading financial expert who has helped individuals successfully plan their financial independence for over 27 years, Don Clark guides readers on how to create and execute a financial plan that achieves their retirement goals in "Personal Independence Planning."

NEW YORK, March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In this day and age, "retirement planning" is more a matter of "independence planning." It is not the end of the career road, but rather, a transition to working less, or in a different capacity, with different income streams. This is an exciting time of life to plan for. The problem is, people want an easy answer to retirement, even though they know there isn't one. Some believe they can get along without a financial advisor, perhaps waiting until they are ready to retire before consulting with anyone. Instead, they should be building a relationship of trust before retirement arrives.

Focused on helping individuals achieve the financial future of their dreams, Don Clark believes sound financial planning is all about relationships.  Beginning with establishing the need for a solid and confident relationship with a financial advisor, Clark's new book, Personal Independence Planning, tackles the once-complex task of ensuring financial independence in retirement. Filled with understandable and easy-to-follow methods, this book allows readers to break free from financial uncertainty and set them on a path towards self-assurance in their retirement planning.

"When it comes to financial planning, everybody has a different number," says, Clark. "You don't need a million dollars to live very comfortably. It all depends on your perspective and expectations. I wrote Personal Independence Planning to help individuals understand the steps they should be taking for their unique situation, as well as look at the forces that threaten to sabotage their best intentions."

Readers will understand how to design a reliable retirement income plan that seeks to replace their paycheck for a lifetime. Offering strategic insight on how to set money aside in different ways for different purposes, Personal Independence Planning looks at essential elements to not only achieve successful retirement planning, but estate planning, where there is a desire to leave assets to family or charity.

By developing strategies built on common sense, Personal Independence Planning guides at every fork in the road when crafting a fool-proof financial independence plan. For readers tired of crunching numbers in hopes that they can finally retire, Clark's book is the solution.

Personal Independence Planning is available now at and other online retailers.
