Charlotte, NC – September 26, 2019:  Doug Ray, Financial Advisor joined Jack Canfield, along with a select group of professionals around the world to co-write the book, Momma’s Secret Recipe for Retirement Success: The Truth About Risk, The Stock Market, Fees, & Annuities. The book was published by CelebrityPress®, a leading business book publisher that publishes books from ThoughtLeaders® around the world and was released on September 12th, 2019.

On the day of release, Momma’s Secret Recipe for Retirement Success reached best-seller status on Amazon – reaching as high as #11 in Retirement Planning and #32 in Budgeting & Money Management categories. The expert information shared in Ray’s chapter, Myth: A Fixed Index with An Income Rider Doesn’t Really Pay Guaranteed Income for Life, It Can Stop at Any Time has helped the book reach optimal best-seller placement and will help readers gain similar success in their endeavors.

CelebrityPress® describes the book as empowering to all retirees and people planning for retirement around the world with the following:

To cook like Momma, you need her recipe, assemble her ingredients, follow directions, blend, cook, and then serve. Sounds simple. What if you had an actual recipe for retirement success? Momma’s same principles can apply to retirement: first find a good cook (financial advisor), find appropriate financial products (ingredients), specify objectives (directions), and create a written plan to best accomplish your goals (serving).

This is easier said than done. Transitioning from Asset Accumulation (while working) to Asset Preservation and Lifetime Income Distribution (retirement) is difficult. You accumulated assets simply by saving but haven’t protected your assets against losses and haven’t created lifetime income. For a successful retirement, you must master Asset Preservation and Lifetime Income Distribution – your future depends on it.

The Celebrity Experts in this book are experienced financial professionals who will give you peace of mind by teaching you exactly what to expect and how the process works. They will give you a Recipe. Their advice, methodologies and safeguards are thoroughly researched, including pros and cons to help you learn the truth about your money. The data presented is both understandable and proven for effectiveness. Why not educate yourself?

After such a successful release, Doug Ray will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors®, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
