Ameriprise Financial Inc. has published the Dream Book, a free guide that individuals can use to explore their retirement goals.

The guide helps consumers think about their retirement dreams, so that they can come up with financial plans that suit their own personal needs, according to Ameriprise, Minneapolis.

Questions for users include, “Do you have a passion in life?” and “If you only had 5 years left to live, how would you spend those years?”

Ameriprise advisors began using the guide with clients in late 2005.
