WIIFY – What’s in it for you?
Have a better retirement by:
-Learning about potential retirement surprises
-Taking actions to mitigate or avoid them.

Premise
As ‘No Surprises Retirement’, we will try to help you avoid bad surprises, primarily on the expense side of the ‘budget teeter totter’ (more on that in a future post).  I want to help you avoid surprises that could damage (i.e. permanently lower) your retirement income. Many fine books, blogs, and advisors will give you direction on income accumulation and investment allocation; we won’t do that here.
