TESTIMONIALS FOR Fire Your Retirement Planner: YOU!
“Brilliance is not taking a complex issue like retirement and so overwhelming the reader with charts and financial esoteric examples that they may feel so overwhelmed and confused that they are immobilized. Brilliance is what Friedman has done in this book. Through the eyes of one who cares more than the bottom line for his clients, Friedman speaks not only from the years of help his clients achieve their retirement objectives, but is able to share the path with clarity and unbelievable simplicity.
“Fire your Retirement Planner: You! is concrete and is so readable that it is compelling and easy to apply. It is not hyperbole to state that those who read this retirement gem could not only retire well, but also could create an ongoing legacy for those they love. I will recommend his work to everyone I know.”

“Rodger follows up the widely popular Forging Bonds of Steel with what I believe will be another big hit. His newest book, Fire your Retirement Planner: You, is written with humor as well as hard-hitting stories about the complexities of retirement planning. As I read the stories within his new book I could only think about how the lessons applied to me and my family as well as those I love. This is a must read for those who want to be grounded in their approach to ensuring they don’t outlive their nest egg they spent a life time building. Rodger helps bring people back to reality in a thoughtful and caring way.”
