Handy charts and checklists take you through the process step by step, making even the scariest questions—What if major home or health expenses arise after I retire? What insurance and investment strategies fit my needs? Do I really have enough money?—easy to approach and answer. Whether you’re driving this road alone or with a partner, confident in your assets or worried they won’t last, let Anthony Delauney navigate you to a happy, fulfilled retirement.

“A handy and informative personal-finance handbook [that] dispenses a wide range of practical advice…[Delauney’s] extensive professional experience comes through in every authoritative and reassuring section.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, ‘I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.’ Roy Geer, the late great goal achievement expert and my personal mentor and co-author, shared with me that there are three levels of understanding: simple, complex, profoundly simple. Roy might well have been influenced by Oliver, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that Anthony Delauney has achieved pro-found simplicity in Owning the Dash: The No Regrets Retirement Roadmap. Read it! More importantly, use it—and keep in mind that simple and easy are not synonyms. Holmes and Geer would be as pleased as I am with Delauney’s inspiring words.”

Doug Lennick,

Owning the Dash®: Applying the Mindset of a Fitness Master to the Art of Family Financial Planning

Mastering money can seem impossible in a society focused on short-term impulses: Live for today. Forget about tomorrow. Owning the Dash® turns that mindset upside down.

Fitness guru, model, motivational speaker, and Delauney’s late cousin, Greg Plitt, built a fitness empire and adopted the phrase “Owning the Dash®.” A force of nature in and out of the gym, Greg believed in planning ahead: taking advantage of every moment and opportunity to make smart decisions now to ensure a healthy future later. In Owning the Dash®, CFP™ Anthony Delauney applies Greg’s mindset to his own area of expertise: personal and family financial planning.

Clear, concise, and accessible, Owning the Dash® makes planning your future easy and pain-free. Learn how to manage cash flow, knock out debt, minimize taxes, financially protect loved ones, invest with confidence, and save for both education and retirement. Leaving a lasting legacy is important—let Owning the Dash help you establish yours.
