The Secrets of a Fulfilling and Enjoyable Retirement Plan with Gary Sirak

Ep. 110

Perhaps the most common misconception about retirement is looking at it as a finish line when it is more like a pit stop. To Gary Sirak, our guest today, our working life is like climbing a mountain - you get to the top, plant your flag, sit back on a chair to enjoy a cold beer, and then you realize, wait a minute! I still have years to live! What am I going to do now? 


Gary Sirak is a Speaker, Financial Advisor, and published Author of three books, including the best-selling "How To Retire and Not Die." Gary is the President of Sirak Financial Services - whose mission has been and always will be to protect, preserve, and prosper their clients and help them achieve the American Dream. 


In this episode, we talk about what differentiates Gary from the rest of the financial advisors, the highlights of his latest book, and "the 3 Ps" system to ensure a fulfilling retirement. We also go through the dangers of retiring without knowing how our life will look after, the social interaction we get from work, the retirement mindset, and much more.
