Author: Jim Kalinowski, Balancing the Badge to Make a Difference book on Amazon Books and Kindle 

 

After seven years of conducting extensive interviews with law enforcement professionals regarding their life goals during their career and into retirement this book became a reality. I praise God for providing me the wisdom to complete this book and to help others. This book is dedicated to the love of my life, my wife Rose.

 

Special thanks to James Bollig (retired HPD sergeant) for his ideas to make my dream a reality. James and my daughter Jennifer Kalinowski spent endless hours revising and editing the book. Their assistance has been invaluable to me during this process and I am very grateful.

 

I also dedicate this book to all law enforcement personnel who sacrifice their lives and time to keep their communities safe.

 

Balancing the Badge to Make a Difference is a holistic approach toward balancing a law enforcement career with a purpose-driven retirement. Balancing the Badge to Make a Difference is based on a relationship with God and family, and a solid financial plan.

 

My passion for creating the Balancing the Badge concept and writing this book began while working alongside peace officers and providing financial services to them. I quickly recognized the importance of Balancing the Badge to provide financial security for officers in retirement and also for developing a purpose-driven retirement to keep retirees motivated, healthy, productive, and most importantly, happy in retirement.

 

Research for this book includes more than 36 years of police experience as an officer and a manager, providing financial services to officers and the public for over 20 years, raising a family, relationship to God, teaching financial planning and life planning for over seven years to officers and cadets, and conducting extensive interviews with law enforcement professionals regarding their life goals during their career and into retirement.

 

The goal for this book is about transforming law enforcement personnel to embrace the concept of Balancing the Badge because a purpose-driven retirement is critical for law enforcement survival.

 

The objective of this book is to provide the tools to cross the bridge from achieving financial wealth, to also achieving life wealth. Building a life portfolio is as important as building a financial portfolio. This is a book for all officers at any stage of their career including retirees that wish to live a life worth living. This book can easily be applied to all other careers as well.

 

The book my be purchased on Amazon Books or balancingthebadge.com

 

God Bless and be safe!
