Is Retirement Coaching right for you?
Just thinking about retirement can be confusing. Where do I begin? Should I keep working? What will I do with myself once I do retire? What will this mean for my lifestyle? As you can see, there is a lot more to retirement than just the financial aspect. 

Your retirement success will depend upon many factors: your work orientation, your attitude toward retirement, your satisfaction with your current life, your adaptability, your perception of age,  how you will replace what your work offers to you now (financial stability, time management, sense of purpose, socialization, and status). 

If you want a lustrous retirement you will have to have a Plan. 
Let’s get started!

Why would you need a Retirement Coach?
Some of the challenges you will want to consider, and which will be revealed when you take the online Retirement Success Profile,  include:

  • How will I disengage from my work/career and still maintain my unique sense of self?

  • How can I thrive, not merely survive, in retirement?

  • How can I remain happy going into, and growing through, my retirement lifestyle?

  • How will I direct and influence the structure of my life without my full-time work?

  • How can I remain fully open to new growth and development on all levels in my   retirement years?

  • How can I remain as fully alive in retirement as I did in previous stages?

  • How can I balance the needs and wants of those who depend on me and maintain my 
              own sense of internal harmony?

  • How can I find the means to rest my body, stimulate my mind, and enrich myself in 

Retirement is ​a very personal issue. There are no "cookie cutter" approaches. You want to achieve your retirement dreams and live this phase of your life to the fullest. As your retirement coach I can help you make that happen.
