6. Reinventing Yourself in Retirement with Diane Stolz
When you retire, a lot of things in your life change, and that means you have to change, too. But instead of looking at that as a challenge or obstacle, look at it as an opportunity — you don’t have to change, you get to reinvent yourself.Diane Stolz was a nurse for 46 years before retiring. She loved it and it served her at the time, but with all the kids out of the house and no job to go to during the day, it was time for big changes. She started writing, which eventually turned into writing a book, and now she is writing a blog to keep serving the community that connected with her writing.Discussion Topics“Can I Afford Early Retirement?”The financial risk of longevityThe pros and cons of paying off your mortgageSocial Security optimization analysisTaking responsibility for figuring out how to maximize your Social Security benefitsNational Social Security Association“7 Ways to Retain More of Every Book You Read:” advice from James ClearTransitioning from a 46-year career into retirementWriting a blog and bookStruggling with the transition into this new phase of lifeEmbracing each new phase of your journeyMaking something to get excited about at each phase of your lifeGiving back to what you love, without the guiltMaking the decision to retireYou don’t have to overthink what “reinventing” your life meansWhat’s your definition of a rich life?Don’t hesitate to create a plan for whatever is nextWhat do you do with your business when you plan to retire?Resources:“Empty Nesters: ...Lose the Guilt!” by Diane StolzWomen at SixtyNational Social Security AssociationEvernoteSocial:Beau Henderson - FacebookBeau Henderson - LinkedInBeau Henderson - TwitterAbout Beau Henderson:Beau Henderson is a retirement consultant, money and business coach, best-selling author, radio host, and Founder of RichLife Advisors.
