Blitz - 7 Benefits of FIA’s for Retirement

 

Retirement is a Rollercoaster, Are You Prepared to Enjoy the Ride?

Nonfiction

Date Published: September 2, 2021

Publisher: Mindstir Media



Imagine you are on a rollercoaster. The slight nervousness when you are in line waiting to board. The feeling of anticipation as you "clank, clank, clank" your way up to the top of the first peak, and then the rush of adrenaline as you accelerate through a feeling of freefall down the rails, followed by a jarring hard left turn followed by a jarring hard right turn. All this to stimulate your sense of danger and to create a true "thrill ride." The enjoyment of a rollercoaster can only be achieved when you know and trust that you are safe throughout the entire experience. If there was ever any doubt that you were safe, you wouldn't even think about riding.

Retirement for many Americans can be like a rollercoaster. We experience the ups and the downs, the jarring turns, and the panic-inducing plummets. However, we have no guarantees and no trust that we are going to be taken care of, so it creates fear and not enjoyment. Is that how we want our retirement to go? Does this sound like a "fun ride"?

Fortunately, you have a choice how you want to experience retirement. For most of us, we don't want it to feel like a rollercoaster, and for good reason! For those who want to feel some of the ups and not the downs, there is a solution, and that solution is a Fixed Indexed Annuity.

7 Benefits of FIAs for Retirement is a holistic and easy to understand retirement readiness book. It is written to benefit both consumers and professionals. This start to finish retirement education is concise and effective and is a must read for every American.

The time has come to take back the power and let the kingdom fall.

Sienna

It’s time to make my move. With solid proof on my finger, I leave my love and enter the gates of the enemy.
Ugo is by my side as we fall into their world and quickly discover the cracks in the Coppola family’s foundation.
I’m confident I’m protected by my father’s name, and though I’m welcomed by the some, I’m watched by the others.

I played my part well—maybe too well, because I think I just changed the future for us all.

Elio

Her mother’s lies blew up my entire world. How could the woman I love have the blood of a monster?
With all eyes intently on me, I turn my back on what is revealed and sink further into what I need to do.
I seek the cover of smoke and mirrors and force back the shadows that want to take me down.

But with any good play there comes a blind spot, and this blind spot might just come with an unexpected body count.

EXCERPT

Sienna
Ugo gripped the top of my arm as I swayed in fear in front of a sign that read Dager’s Den.
“Why here?” I couldn’t look at him.
“Because,” I heard him rub his face, annoyed with my questions, “she’s like clockwork. She’d never miss a day to flaunt her power to the other men.”
Sweet Lord.
“I think I might faint.”
He cut me a quick glance then shook his head and cursed.
My entire body froze with fear, and my eyes went wide at the sound of the handle being pulled. The door opened to reveal a woman with eyes as black as coal in a face with skin so white it almost glowed. Her dark hair was pulled tightly back into a bun, and a pair of glasses hung from the collar of her blue blouse. Her perfectly ironed gray slacks stopped at her ankles just above her small-heeled boots. Both hands rested on a glass ball that sat on the top of her black cane. I felt like I had been transported directly into a nasty scene from a Disney movie.
“Ugo.” She only spoke his name then closed her eyes slowly, and when they opened again, they were on me. I stepped back, but Ugo pressed me forward, rooting me back in place. She was like a cobra only inches from my face. It made me want to run and scream at the same time, but my brain seemed to have shorted out at the simultaneous commands.
So, I just stared.
“Nonna Michele,” Ugo addressed her, and I felt him look down at me, “I want you to meet someone.”
A cold chill passed through my body, and I became lightheaded as my heartbeat pulsed in my ears. “This is Theo’s Alessia, your granddaughter.”
She lifted her eyes to stare at him for a brief moment then turned those black pools back to me. Her colorless lips pressed into a hard line as she tried to see inside my soul.
“Prove it.”
I stood frozen, completely unable to respond. She had awakened such a deep fear inside of me I was completely at her mercy.
Ugo reached for my hand and held it up to show her the ring.
She grabbed my hand between her icy fingers and held it close to her face. She closed one eye and twisted the band around and gave a low gasp.
“Impossible.”

About the Author

Rafael Amadeus Hines is a native New Yorker with Panamanian, Jamaican, and Irish roots, who was born and raised on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Dipping into his early Alphabet City memories, he loosely based many of the characters in his first novel, Bishop's War, on the gangsters, cops, and combat veterans he grew up with, and adapted many of his own experiences into the book as well.

Rafael is a former Jazz club owner and restaurateur, and has worked in the financial and energy markets for over twenty years. On 9/11 he watched his office along with all the others in the Twin Towers come crashing down and, like many New Yorkers on that day, he anticipated follow up attacks to take place throughout the city. Years later he envisioned a lone citizen soldier preventing these attacks and the hero Sgt. John Bishop appeared on paper.

Rafael is the father of three and still lives in the New York neighborhood where he grew up. A voracious reader of suspense thrillers, his writing career was inspired by legendary artist-authors Elmore Leonard, Vince Flynn, John Sandford, Stephen Hunter, Walter Mosley, James Lee Burke, and Tom Clancy. He is currently working on the third novel in the Bishop series.
