Ricardo Mauzer

Ricardo (Rikk) Mauzer joined my Retirement Transition email group a few years ago. I believe he was the only one who was a few years away from retirement.

THAT provided much insight to me... Rikk cared enough about having a retirement plan to think ahead.

Most folks don't... until they are retired and say "Now What?"
