Do you believe retirement starts at age 65?
Do you think retirement is about playing endless rounds of golf, reading novels, and drinking a Mai Tai while lounging in a hammock on a tropical beach?
I have news for you. The retirement game has completely changed. The old rules are so 1990. You need to understand the new retirement so you can plan accordingly.
Future retirees are living longer and enjoying greater health much later in life. This reality has changed everything about retirement planning:
- Pensions are no longer a reliable source of income forcing most people to self-fund through savings.
- 30+ years of endless leisure is not how most people define a fulfilling life.
- Few are willing to wait until age 65 to shift their career from maximum income to maximum fulfillment.
- Most people desire greater personal connection with community and meaningful contribution once their career based network ends.
Most people intuitively get that the retirement planning game has changed, but few understand what to do about it.
- Should you “retire” at age 40, 50, or 65?
- What should you do with your life after retirement?
- How do you know when you are ready to retire – both financially and emotionally?

The truth is retirement is the biggest financial objective you must plan for. It dwarfs buying a house or saving for the kids college.
Given that traditional retirement planning no longer works and the game has completely changed it only makes sense to bring your knowledge up to speed so that you can retire 10 or 20 years earlier than previously planned.
