Even if retirement is something you’re looking forward to, actually leaving the world of work can be daunting. It is a time filled with changes, and like any other life transition, your retirement will be more successful if you have a plan. But the fact is, most people spend more time planning for a two-week vacation than they do for what could amount to more than 30 years of their life!
Work meets many of our basic needs besides providing a pay cheque: a sense of purpose and meaning, structure to our day, opportunities to form relationships and connect with others, to name a few. How will those needs be met once you retire? Those who take a proactive approach and plan for these aspects of retirement and have a positive sense of themselves outside of work will have a smoother transition.
Your Ideal Retirement Coaching offers a variety of resources and programs that will help you to figure out how you can achieve just that – a smooth transition to your ideal retirement – whatever that may look like!

“Retirement is not an ending, it’s a new beginning, the start of a new life journey of vastly expanded proportion.” - Richard P. Johnson, PhD
