In this inspiring book, Donna Phelan takes a new and refreshing approach to retirement planning for women. Told from the perspective of the four Strong sisters – one married, one divorced, one widowed and one who never married – this is the powerful story of each sister’s journey on the road to retirement success.
This insightful book relates how each sister’s circumstances influenced the path she would take in her own retirement planning, and the lessons each needed to learn in order to succeed.
As a seasoned professional on the front lines of some of the world’s largest and most respected investment firms, helping people plan for retirement is Donna’s job. She has spent the past two decades lecturing, writing, and working closely with her clients as they manage their investments and plan for the future. She knows that retirement planning can be scary in today’s uncertain world, and that women face many unique financial challenges that their male counterparts do not.

Innovative and encouraging, this book provides effective strategies for women who feel they are behind in saving for retirement. Donna demonstrates how to establish income for life by setting up SISTERS: Stackable Income Streams To Empower Retirement Security.
