Section 1: Welcome Retirement Late Savers!

Haven't you procrastinated and wasted enough time NOT saving money? The only way to overcome the dangerous problem of not having adequate retirement savings is to aggressively attack the problem right now. And if you make the grown-up decision to implement positive changes, there's hope. 


Various surveys about people and their money have a common thread: People of all age groups are fearful when it comes to financial matters. Whether its paying for healthcare cost or investing in the stock market, fear dominates. In this lecture, Ron explains how to successfully conquer the fears that prevent you from reaching your financial goals. 

Section 2: Strategies for Retirement Late Savers

Although many people have the misinformed view that postponing retirement is a total disaster, it's not. In this lesson, Ron shares three strategies for reducing the financial stress of retirement. After digesting this lesson, you will see how to transform a postponed retirement date to your favor. 


If you work at a company that offers matching retirement contributions and you're not taking full advantage of your employer's generosity, it could come back to haunt you. 


Does higher risk lead to higher returns? In this lecture, Ron examines a $500,000 investment portfolio and how taking on more risk doesn't necessarily guarantee wonderful results. The bottom line is that trying to hit the jackpot with high risk strategies to overcome a lack of retirement savings is hazardous to your financial security. 


If you're age 50 or older, you may be eligible for catchup contributions to your IRA, Roth IRA, 401(k), or other retirement plan. Taking advantage of this provision will help you to accelerate your retirement savings and to conquer the late savings "curse."


Just because you're self-employed or lack an employer that provides matching retirement plan contributions doesn't mean you're doomed. In this lesson, Ron shows you how to jumpstart and accelerate your retirement savings. 


If you own collectibles, you have the opportunity to boost your retirement savings by 10% or more. Possessions like art, jewelry, musical recordings, books, wine, and other collectibles can easily be converted to cash, thereby increasing the value of your retirement savings. 

Section 3: Maintaining a Balanced View of Your Expenses

Many current retirees and pre-retirees are stuck with the heavy burden of home ownership. Taxes, insurance, home repairs, and unpaid mortgage balances are all undermining their ability to live a comfortable retirement. In this lesson, you will learn about proven strategies for balancing the stress of home ownership with the need for retirement cash flow. 


This lesson will completely change your perspective on automobile ownership! Instead of following the herd, this lesson shares alternative tactics that sidestep the avoidable expense of owning a car. Beyond saving you money, these techniques are also likely to improve your health!


Where you decide to spend your retirement years will have a big impact on your bottom line. In this lecture, Ron tells you about the three worst U.S. states for retirees and why the place you choose to live will affect your retirement lifestyle for better or worse. Choose wisely!


Besides simplifying your life, decluttering your basement, spare bedroom, or garage can allow you to monetize those spaces. Although it may not seem like much, it can add up to thousands of dollars toward your retirement plan over the years. 


Having credit card debt is never a satisfactory excuse for delaying the implementation of your retirement savings plan. People who have self-respect always pay themselves first. And in this lesson, you'll discover how to successfully reduce and eliminate your debt. 

Section 4: Keeping Your Financial Plan on Path

Before you can get your money right, you first need to get your mindset right. And in this lecture, Ron tackles eight super common by super incorrect myths about money. 


The only way to escape the trap of retirement insecurity is to aggressively attack the problem right now. You must conquer the bad habits of procrastination and a lack of discipline. What happens from this point forward - good or bad - is your responsibility. Ron summarizes why the strategies covered in this course will help you to reshape your retirement savings for the better. But to succeed, you must take immediate action.
