Baby Boomers Forced To Change Their Retirement Plans As The Recession Continues Without End in Sight
PR Log - Sep 19, 2012 - Dr. Anita Bist announces the release of her book “Masala for Retirement: How to Add ZEST to the Rest of Your Life”. The author uses the Indian word “masala” which means spices, as a colorful metaphor for all the important life areas that make up a successful retirement lifestyle.
“According to the Pew Research Center, 60% of workers in their 50s and early 60s say they will have to delay their retirement due to the recession,” states author Dr. Anita Bist. “401K losses as well as underwater home mortgages are some of the reasons they give for their dream retirement plans going up in smoke.”
“Due to the nature of the poor job market, baby boomers are finding that they have to take low-paying jobs in order to support themselves,” continues Dr. Anita Bist. “Many of them are stuck in houses they cannot sell, facing mounting healthcare costs as well as inflated prices on consumer products. To compound the hardship, many of their children are moving in with their baby boomer parents due to their own lack of financial stability.”
Her timely book Masala for Retirement has anecdotes and ideas on how baby boomers can reinvent themselves and start their own part-time or full-time businesses in order to subsidize their retirement. The author also suggests other strategies such as retiring in a less expensive locale at home or abroad. In addition, the author includes planning tools and self-assessment questions that will empower the reader to create a possibility-filled retirement.
