NOT ONLY HAVE I BEEN WHERE YOU ARE GOING, I AM WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO BE SOMEDAY AND I CAN TELL YOU IT LOOKS VERY, VERY DIFFERENT THAN I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO!
What is your picture of the next phase of your life? What does that transition look like to you? Open heart surgery forced me to look at mine. Abruptly-and we were not prepared!
I am a former business owner who founded, grew and sold a successful firm after 30 years. I retired to travel, play golf, join boards and then I realized I had “flunked” retirement- while still in the non-compete period.
Now, I work with business owners and entrepreneurs who are and will be going through where I have already been; in fact where I am currently. I am now coaching clients to think or rethink through the process while considering what life will/can look like in the years ahead.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS AS A QUICK STARTER:
* When do I plan to retire?
* Do I know how much money I will need to retire?
* Do I know what I will do with myself in retirement?
* Are my personal, business and estate plans integrated?
* What kind of legacy or charitable goals am I thinking about?
