Retirement Planning Expert, Brian Fricke, Looking for Worry-Free Retirement Stories to Feature on “Bandanas Around The World” Website

Brian Fricke, Financial and Retirement Planning Expert, is searching for stories of life, purpose and passion to feature in the 2nd Edition of the Worry Free Retirement Bandanna Journal. 

Orlando, Fla. – March 31, 2010 – Brian Fricke, a leading expert in retirement planning and a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), recently launched the website, an online compliment to his popular book, “Worry Free Retirement Bandana Journal.”  The book featured stories and photos from Brian’s friends and clients of fun travel experiences, along with stories and photos of enjoying life with their “Worry Free Retirement Bandanas.”  

Now, Brian is issuing a call for entries to be included in the 2nd Edition of the popular book.  While the first book featured mostly travel stories, this time around, Brian would also like to include stories from those who may not enjoy traveling as much, but still do other things that bring joy and satisfaction to their lives. 

“Everyone, even you, has something that you do or participate in that brings you immense joy and satisfaction. Tell us what that is!  Share your story with us – we really do want to hear it, whether it involves travel or not,” remarked Brian Fricke.  

“The goal for the next edition of Worry Free Retirement Bandanna Journals is to publish a collection of stories, reminding and encouraging others that life is meant to be ‘lived’ so you experience joy and satisfaction, meaning and purpose,” continued Brian. 

To submit your photo and story, just e-mail your photo(s) and story to [email protected] 

The first book, “Worry Free Retirement Bandana Journal,” is now available at the website as a free downloadable e-book.  Some of the stories and chapters included in the eBook include:

·      When You Make the Decision to Enjoy Life Dreams Do Come True!

·      Zip Lining in Belize

·      Tough Times May Be Ahead For Us—We Are Ready


·      Everyday is a Vacation…at the Beach!

·      Riding The Wave To Early Retirement! 

The website also features some of the most interesting journals, stories, and photographs collected by Brian over the years.  While money is important, there are things in life more important than money. My hope is that the stories that follow will motivate and/or inspire you to live your life with purpose and passion,” commented Brian.
