Life Planning

By Cathy Severson, MS

As a counselor, one of the first questions baby boomers preparing for retirement say when we talk is, “I don’t know what I’m going to do after I retire.” Retirement is a significant life transition with opportunities to develop new passions and redefine who you are from the inside out.

Most of the information about retirement has centered on finances, but it’s also an important psychological shift that can be both scary and liberating. RetireWOW was created to help you successfully transition into this new world. We know this isn’t our parents’ retirement. In addition to the blog, we are creating a community where we can learn from each other, as well as the RLM experts.

I encourage you to sign up for the newsletter, ask questions of the experts, make comments, join in the teleclass and even be a guest blogger. This is your site, so let us know what you want and how we can make it better.
