Why, I'd even help you create a retirement better
than you deserve, if that were possible.
Boring retirements should be outlawed. How
tragic, to work so hard and long only to let passion
and excitement wither away, or to leave adventure
and learning to others. If you're alive, your
lessons are not over. My work as a
retirement coach is to help you re-discover your long-buried
passions and lead you to the excitement and
fulfillment you've been longing for.
How Retirement Coaching
Will Change . . . Your . . . Life
While many retirees have planned for their financial
well-being, most have not planned for the
non-financial aspects of their retirement lifestyle.
They have not even considered the absolutely crucial questions
that my clients and I answer every day:
How will I spend my time when I’m no longer working
Will a retirement of full-time leisure satisfy me?
And if not, what will?
Do I want to work or do volunteer work? If so, how
much do I want to work?
How will I develop a new sense of identity and my
feeling of status in the community without my job
and my business card?
How will I recreate the sense of purpose and meaning
that my job gave me?
How will my relationships change? How will I replace
the sense of connectedness and develop new
relationships that my former work colleagues
What is my vision for my retirement?
If you have not given much thought to these
questions, you are not alone. In fact, the 76
million U.S. baby boomers who are retiring or
approaching retirement spend more time planning for a two-week vacation than they do planning for their 30+
years of retirement! But because older people
are far healthier, wealthier and better educated
than ever before, retirement opens them up to a
whole new life phase of possibility, opportunity and
For many people, retirement is only fulfilling when
it can combine their existing talents with new
dimensions of themselves that they now seek to
express. I have helped
hundreds of clients just like you with:
Insight. Get in
touch with who you’ve become over the years. Explore
your values, your purpose, what motivates you, what
you’ve enjoyed in your work and personal life and
what you haven’t, your interests, skills, talents
and knowledge. This knowledge will enable you to
make empowered retirement choices.
Applied Values. Evaluate the benefits of work, like the status it
gives you, how it structures your time, a sense of
usefulness, financial remuneration and social
connections. You’ll discover how important each of
these factors is for you and if and how you want to
recreate them in your “new retirement”.
Vision. Create a
template of what you want your “dream” retirement to
look like. How much leisure, work, volunteering,
focus on health, family, relationships, spiritual
well-being, learning and growth, and creativity do
Action Plans. Construct a plan to turn that “dream” into reality,
and through our coaching relationship you will
overcome fears and blocks that may limit you from
taking the steps that will enable you to create what
you really want.
I coach men and women, ages 50+, who neither want
nor expect to live the next 30+ years from the
sidelines. Quite the opposite, they deeply
desire a successful retirement experience enriched
by the right mix of meaningful work, “give-back” to
their community, time with family and friends,
learning, and leisure. How do we take that
desire and transform it into your dream life?
By refusing to accept that retirement is an ending
and replacing it with the “ah-ha” that the
retirement of today is a unique spectrum of
opportunities and possibilities only available to
adults who have earned a lifetime of experience.

What Happens in
For genuine success in retirement, the first step is
to re-examine who you are, who you have become over
the years: your identity, your life purpose and your
values. With this new self-understanding, you will
approach this life transition with a strong personal
foundation, more passion and greater self-knowledge
to handle challenges – a powerful advantage over
many of the more than 11,000 Americans and Canadians
who turn 55 everyday and retire with varying degrees
of boredom, isolation, regret, and murky purpose.
