Description


Anne Lester—former head of retirement solutions for JPMorgan and award-winning investor—blends science and experience to provide Millennials and Gen Z with the key steps that will set them up for a successful retirement and help them achieve their biggest life goals.

Most 20-and 30-somethings are understandably anxious about their future. Just as they emerged from a pandemic that forever changed their relationship with work, they had to abruptly discover their place in the AI revolution. But imagine if in the midst of all this uncertainty they had one thing they could depend on: their financial security.

Enter Anne Lester, former head of retirement solutions for JPMorgan Asset Management. In Your Best Financial Life, Anne provides actionable solutions for the unique challenges Millennials and Gen Z face while saving for their future. Drawing on her own personal experience, latest research, and fresh case studies, Anne meets readers where they are and helps them:

·      Understand why they behave the way they do around money

·      Identify their savings and spending profiles—and how to hack their brains to begin accumulating real wealth

·      Balance saving for retirement with paying off debt and other life goals

·      Decode confusing financial jargon to make life’s biggest decisions just a little bit easier

And so much more.

Written with compassion and empathy, Your Best Financial Life is the book that Millennials and Gen Z who are anxious about money—and their future—have been waiting for.

Critic Reviews

“[Your Best Financial Life] stands out for the clarity of Lester’s explanations . . . and for her shrewd assessments of recent financial developments . . . [A] sensible introduction to getting one’s finances in order.” — Publishers Weekly“Because she understands how easy it is to mess up and need a do-over when it comes to personal finances, Lester is able to talk to Gen Z and millennials about savings and retirement in a way that doesn’t stir up shame or embarrassment.” — Marketwatch“[A] beacon of hope for Gen Z and millennials ensnared in the web of financial instability.” — BNN Breaking“[Your Best Financial Life] delivers a straightforward pathway to retirement and financial preparedness directed at the millennial and Gen Z crowd." — Booklist“The brilliance of [Anne Lester's] approach is that she breaks up the basics of a financial plan for retirement into easy-to-understand elements. . . . Her language and writing style are clear and straightforward, not in the least intimidating or challenging. . . .Your Best Financial Life is well written and intended for anyone looking to start planning and organizing their financial future.”  — FXBG Advance“When you work in the trenches, you know: Money rules. Yet money brings up feelings of dread and anxiety for far too many people. Anne Lester changes the game—with fresh revelations on why it’s so hard to save, and how you can overcome any debilitating feelings standing in your way and get going. Anne’s been-there-done-that voice makes her approach nonjudgmental and wise. Her blue-chip background makes her preeminently qualified. Bottom line, if you're determined to get started, reading Your Best Financial Life is a great first step.” — Jean Chatzky, New York Times bestselling author of Women and Money and founder of HerMoney.com“Finding financial security is simple but not easy. It's simple because investing isn't alchemy; the market does a lot of the work for us. But it's not easy because it requires a disciplined saving and investing program, and that means delaying gratification and being willing to keep investing when stocks are down. In her new book Your Best Financial Life, Anne Lester shares an action plan for finding financial success and peace of mind. What makes the book come to life are Anne's relatable, and often hilarious, stories. The reader has the sense that the wisdom she imparts is hard-won.” — Christine Benz, director of personal finance and retirement planning at Morningstar“Anne Lester’s new book, Your Best Financial Life, is a must-read. Geared toward readers in their 20s and 30s, the practical advice in this book is beneficial to anyone with money anxiety. The author’s conversational tone and self-depreciating humor make this book about finance approachable. I loved the money hacks tailored to different personality types. I just wish this book had been available when I graduated from college. I know this will be a game-changer for the next generation.”  — Kathleen Burns Kingsbury, author of Breaking Money Silence® and founder of KBK Wealth Connection“Your Best Financial Life is packed with tips, tools, and advice that will get you ready for a long and financially healthy life. Regardless of your age, you will benefit from the wisdom and insights that this book has to offer. A must-read for everyone.” — Michael Clinton, bestselling author of ROAR and former president and publishing director of Hearst Magazines“In Your Best Financial Life, Anne Lester helps solve a problem that’s vexed the American economy for years: how to increase savings and investment. Anne’s credentials are exceptional, so I’m recommending her book to everyone in the rising generations. (That’s you, Millennials and GenZers.) With empathy and funny stories, Anne shows how our brains naturally work against savings—and how easily you can circumvent those biases and start saving for real, forever, and to have a financially secure future. Treat yourself to a solution that’s good for you and good for the economy. Get a copy of Anne’s book today.” — Jason Fichtner, chief economist of the Bipartisan Policy Center"As Anne Lester knows, it’s easy to fall prey to false beliefs about money. In her book, she uses easy tools and can’t-make-this-up stories to help you simplify your thinking and reclaim your financial life—now, and at that seemingly-long away time of retirement. Take it from an expert, you need Anne’s help. I recommend you get copy of her book today." — Manisha Thakor, award-winning author of MoneyZen
