Managing whatever wealth is accumulated during one’s working years has always been a challenge.

When to play it conservatively and when to take risks are questions most of us struggle with, and unfortunately, sometimes we come out on the losing end.

J.D. Joyce has worked in the investment field for 19 years. He has penned a novel that focuses on the couple Rich and Peg Viva, who have money to invest, thanks to selling a company they owned.

The book also tells the stories of others who are older than them and shows the effects of the choices they made.

Joyce gave an example from the book of Rich Viva attending a high school reunion and encountering three of his former teachers.

Teacher No. 1 didn't invest in the stock market and now in her late 70s, she has outlived her money.

Teacher No. 2 put the majority of her money in one holding, which ended up like Enron.
