What to do after Retirement? Episode 109 - Rock Your Retirement Show
5 days ago
This might be a hard question for some people who are planning to retire but, let’s face it. What are you going to do after you retire?
Steve Cousins is one of our listeners. (Hi Steve!)
He worked for an oil company as an engineer and became the vice president and general manager. He stayed for the same company for his entire career. Steve retired in 2016 when he turned 60, but then he started doing some part-time work, plus he started volunteering.
What did he do before and after he retires?
He always thought he will be working until he was 70 because he was really enjoying in what he’s doing. But a few years before he retired, it all changed.
Steve got bored.
But even though Steve was bored he continued working because he was afraid of retirement. He thought there might not be anything else in him if he left the company.
“You shouldn’t run away from something. You have to run towards something.”
Steve now has gigs such as:
* Expert Witness work
* Trade Association representation
* Tons of volunteer work!
It’s not all work for Steve. He also spends time with his wife. They enjoy doing a lot of things together like running, hiking, off-road riding, discovering hidden waterfalls, and many more activities. Now that they are retired, they can spend a lot more time together.
His wife is also smart. When he was about to retire, she gave him some fantastic advice.
And here is Steve’s advice:
“You should marry someone better than yourself and invest a lot of time in your relationship because if everything else went away and you still have each other, you will still be fine.”
What was the best advice you got in your life?
