Retirement Is No Longer A Destination –
It’s a Journey, a Transition, an OPPORTUNITY to Live Life YOUR WAY
with the Help of a Retirement Coach!
You’re 50-75 + years old. You may want to continue doing what you’ve been doing or perhaps work differently, wanting to fit work into life rather than squeezing life into work. You may also want to use your skills differently.
Perhaps you’ve been downsized, or company policy says you must go, or something deep inside you says it’s time to move on.
Retirement is used to signal the last stage of life. No more.
Many people don’t want to retire. Some want to work in different ways and others can’t afford to retire because they fear they will outlive their money. Still, others want to create encore careers, using their skills to “give back.”
How can you be aware and intentional as you plan "what's next?"
It’s About You
You have wisdom, skills, experience, energy, and you may or may not be completely set financially, but that’s not the primary reason you want to continue working in some form.
You want the freedom to live life on your own terms.
Then don’t make the common mistake of jumping into the first thing that comes along.
You want to finally do work that is a creative expression of who you are, work that touches your spirit ignites your passion, and leaves you feeling fully alive.
Then retire retirement.
Define your third stage of life on your own terms!
Plan your retirement - the way you imagine it to be.
Typically, retirement is portrayed as a time of living happily, free of stress and having plenty of time to do whatever you want. While relaxing and getting some well-deserved rest is certainly important, for some, there is only so much napping, tinkering around the house, playing golf or cards one can do.
Retirement is a huge transition and possibly the hardest and most stressful one people will make in their entire life.
Without a solid plan, many retirees instead find themselves bored, lonely, somewhat unfulfilled, and even depressed.
They too may now be out of sync with their spouse who has not worked or been long retired or who is still working.
While a financial advisor may help with the financial side of preparing for retirement, it is a Retirement Coach who can best prepare you for the personal challenges. I, as your Retirement Coach, can help you deal with the potential mental, emotional, and spiritual issues of dealing with your career-ending and your moving into this next stage of life.
