The “New Retirement” is gathering momentum and catching major media attention. Are you on board?
In fact, no less than AARP has gotten behind the initiative with a new book titled Life Reimagined by Richard Leider.
More and more people are realizing the life-changing message the New Retirement delivers. It is much bigger than just financial planning. It explores the intersection between finance and fulfillment showing you how to blend them together into a life well-lived.
You will particularly enjoy in this interview how cohesive Richard and my viewpoints are on this subject – remarkably so – right down to the actual implementation steps and the meaning behind them. In fact, I wrote the introduction to this podcast before ever seeing Richard’s book only to find out it couldn’t have been more perfectly targeted. Not a coincidence.
During the discussion Richard and I go back and forth playing off each other bringing different language and different examples to the same core message – we want to help you get past traditional retirement illusions and embrace a more empowering and fulfilling life plan.
Bottom line – if you have any interest in retiring with financial security and enjoying a happy life (who doesn’t?) then this interview is a must listen. It carefully redefines retirement as a highly misunderstood stage of life so that you know what to expect and how to plan for for the best.
