Hi there. I’m Joe. I’m a writer, newspaper columnist and financial planner. I live in Omaha with my wife and daughter and I’ve been helping people all across the country plan for retirement for nearly 20 years.
I’ve written two books and I write monthly columns on retirement for the Financial Planning Association and the Omaha World Herald. This site, my books, columns, and thoughts on retirement have been featured in places like AARP, Dow Jones MarketWatch, Yahoo Finance, U.S. News & World Report, Retirement Weekly, MSN Money, NASDAQ.com and numerous radio programs like Dr. Laura.
About the site
I started Intentional Retirement for one very important reason:
To show you how to live a secure, meaningful retirement
doing the things you want with the people you love.
In addition to the resources available over here, I write one or two key articles per week on things like travel, investments, lifestyle design, Social Security, Medicare, housing, hobbies, estate planning, and finding personal fulfillment. In other words, everything you need to know to make your retirement remarkable.
What’s unique about us?
Ever notice how most of the articles you read about retirement seem designed to scare, discourage or confuse you? They’re usually technical, financially focused and, quite frankly, boring. Is your goal to be a financial guru or is it to have a better life? I thought so. Every article I write and product I create is written with that in mind.
Who’s it for?
IR is a resource for anyone looking to move beyond the conventional so they can live an intentional, meaningful life. If that resonates with you, come join the movement. There’s always room for one more.
Head on over to the Start Here page and let’s get going.
Good luck and enjoy the adventure!
