Are you getting close to retirement and wondering what comes next? Or maybe you’ve found yourself retired and you weren’t really ready for it?

You’re not alone … many people have no idea what retirement is going to bring. And the internet is full of financial advice for retirement, but there's not much about what really goes on after retirement.

We all know that life doesn’t end at retirement – there’s potentially two or three more decades that we’re going to have to live through. So, the big question is … WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

This podcast gives you the answer. Come along with me while I figure out how to live "the life I have imagined." You’ll hear from men and women who have moved away from traditional 9-5 jobs, and from some who are retired, and you'll hear my thoughts as I make my own journey. Together we’ll figure out what comes next.

This show isn’t about business and finances, it’s about life!

So sit down with a pen and some paper and start dreaming - where do you want to live, what do you want to do? Take the time to really make the dream come to life!

    How Big is Your Sandbox? - with George Jerjian

    How Big is Your Sandbox? - with George Jerjian

    George Jerjian is a mindset mentor to retiring Boomers, and the auther of DARE to Discover Your Purpose - Retire, Refire, Rewire.
    George discusses what he describes as the caterpillar and cocoon cycle of life. The first stage of life is spent chasing awards, accomplishments, achievements, and money, as you build your little cocoon. The second stage, after the cocoon is shed, becomes the transformation into something new where you can discover yourself. The last thing you want is to be on your deathbed, realizing that you've spent your life following someone else's plans. So the way to prevent that realization is to ask yourself some important questions:
    Who am I?
    What brings me joy?
    What do I want to do?

    The biggest "problem" as we age seems to be that we find ourselves starting to believe the inner talk - the voice in our head that says we're old and we need to slow down, or stop doing particular activities.
    We tend to let our "sandbox" get smaller as we age. If we can stop listening to that voice, and just keep DOING THINGS, life will continue to be full and may even expand.

    Tom has provided https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dWBXqanOCpVmjOXvb5qKZt_vt0hkwR1S/view?usp=sharing (a description of the symbols) in the window. Looking at the stained glass window, Tom drew the monk in the centre with 14 pieces surrounding it.

Well worth your time!

I highly recommend listening to Beyond Retirement, what a great idea that Jacquie had in putting these together for those thinking about and preparing for retirement, or that have already retired and wanting to learn and maximize on life opportunities. Jacquie discusses a wide range of subjects, with some very interesting guests, so many possibilities that you might not even have thought about. Mostly she has a relaxed, friendly and natural way about her, with a comforting and enjoyable voice to listen to, you can’t go wrong in taking the time to listen and expand your knowledge on all the exciting possibilities. Terrific initiative Jacquie, thank you!
