The Retirement Remix:
A Modern Solution to an Old School Problem

Now is the time to eliminate the dividing line between working and retirement and put control of your future back into your own hands. After nearly two decades in the finance business, Chip Munn found himself on a journey to not only save more for retirement, but to also live a happier, healthier life in the process. As he researched, he found lists of the happiest and healthiest countries in the world - and noticed that four countries made it onto every list. Assuming they must be doing something right, he set out to study their routines and habits. In these countries, his research showed, workers take off an extra 220 hours a year compared to the average worker in the United States. They focus on having strong social ties. The more he shared and discussed his research, Chip felt confident that the idea of Old School Retirement was broken and eventually developed a method to applying these better practices to help himself (and his clients) live happier, healthier lives too. The Retirement Remix was born.

Leap Before You Look:
An Accidental Entrepreneur’s Guide to Building and Scaling a Financial Advisory Business

It's harder than ever to become a financial advisor. Training budgets have been slashed, and established advisors have their hands full managing businesses that they never really meant to run.

This book is written to share practical tips with new and prospective advisors, provide established advisors with business growth and operational solutions, and outline strategies for breaking free into a new, better future - whether that's starting a new firm or preparing for your professional legacy.Chip Munn has spent the last twenty years breaking in as a financial advisor and breaking free to build his ideal practice. This book was written as a jump start for you to do the same.
