Praise for Wealth Regeneration at Retirement

"Kaycee Krysty and Bob Moser′s stimulating book provides an exciting path forward for our post–retirement years. Their essential message that you can build a rewarding new life through generativity in life′s third phase provides a road map to greater fulfillment and purpose. It is sure to lead to great discussions with your family and friends."

Bill George, professor, Harvard Business School; coauthor of True North ; and former chair and CEO, Medtronic

"Kaycee′s principles of Wealth Regeneration have been the basis of my longterm financial planning for a very long time. As my own ′retirement′ drew closer, I found myself in the position of being fully prepared and able to make my choices between heading out to pasture (the golf course), continuing to work within my traditional parameters, or setting off on a whole new course, utilizing digital technology to reinvent storytelling. Given that 70 is the new 35, more and more of us are going to be giving up the ′Gone Fishing′ sign in favor of the ′Happily Heading for New Frontiers′ sign. This book is leading the way."

John Saul, New York Times bestselling author; now internet entrepreneur

"Not that many years ago, retirement was considered by many to involve a rocking chair on the front porch. Retirement now means using one′s experience and learned skills to accomplish and lead. Most successful individuals have the opportunity to focus on what they had earlier wished they had the time to do. This book is an excellent guide on how to make this next phase of your life possible and enjoyable."

Sam Smith, former president, Washington State University; now educational innovator

"This book is a practical road map for life after retirement for those at the top. The tools for taking this journey with success are set forth in a straightforward style based on the many years of experience of the authors."

Jim Faulstich, former CEO, Federal Home Loan Bank; now opera singer
