Excerpt: “The Moolala Guide to Rockin’ Your RRSP”
In The Moolala Guide to Rockin’ Your RRSP, best-selling author, television host, and popular speaker Bruce Sellery makes retirement relevant to your life today, even though it may be decades before you leave your career behind. He provides a simple plan to help you rock your RRSP immediately, and most importantly, he inspires you to get off your duff and take action.
Why I wrote The Moolala Guide to Rockin’ Your RRSP
My mission in life is to inspire people to get a handle on their money so they can live the lives they want. That is why I wrote my first book, Moolala: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things with Their Money (and What You Can Do About It). That book was about helping smart people gain the knowledge, skills, and habits they need to start doing smart things with their money more often. Many of the book’s topics resonated with people, but retirement savings was one area in particular where readers said they wanted more support. There is certainly no shortage of information out there about Registered Retirement Savings Plans – mountains of it, in fact. And still, most people I talk to have mixed feelings about retirement savings. I wanted to write a guide that made people feel better about retirement savings by inspiring them to develop a plan and then go out and take action on that plan
Why read The Moolala Guide to Rockin’ Your RRSP?
I’m asking you to invest the money it will cost to buy this guide, plus your time and energy to work through it. So what will you get out of it? You will receive three really great benefits if you work your way through this guide:
Retirement savings will become relevant to you and your life
Identifying why it is in your self-interest to contribute to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan is job one. It isn’t enough that your dad keeps droning on about the importance of retirement savings (or the banks, or the finance minister, or even me for that matter). Most people’s eyes glaze over when the topic comes up – in part because it can be dreadfully boring and in part because it feels like the pundits and proselytizers are talking to someone else. But I am not talking to someone else. I am talking to you. And I am going to do my darndest to make retirement savings relevant to you, your family, and your life.
You’ll develop a simple plan to rock your RRSP immediately
You might not have an RRSP set up yet – you might not have gotten around to it, or you might not be convinced an RRSP is the best way to go. Or you might have one set up, but you’re pretty sure there is more you could be doing to make the most of it. Whatever your circumstances are, I am going to help you develop a simple plan to take you from where you are today to where you want to be in the future.
You’ll be inspired to get off your duff and take action
There is a big difference between knowing what to do and actually going out and doing it. Sure, you need a certain amount of knowledge to get a handle on your money. But way, way, way more important than amassing lots of knowledge is taking action. This Moolala Guide to Rockin’ Your RRSP will focus on giving you everything you need to be inspired to get off your duff and take action.
