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!

    The End of Beyond Retirement?

    The End of Beyond Retirement?

    It's been a lot of fun these past few years, getting to know so many guests and hearing from multiple listeners with great thoughts about the show.

    But the time has come to bring it to a close. Beyond Retirement was started to guide me and all my listeners on the journey to the next stage of life.

    Well, I've made it! I'm at the gate to life "Beyond Retirement" and I have to say I'm excited about the future!

    As I mention in this episode, I'm looking for suggestions for a title to the book I'm writing about life beyond retirement. If I use your suggestion, I'll send you a copy of the book!! You can send your suggestions here: retireabc@gmail.com Enter as often as you like!

    The possibilities I've thought of so far are:

    * Beyond Retirement – Embracing a Fulfilling Life
    * Creating A Vibrant Life Beyond Retirement
    * The Good Life: Exploring the Non-Financial Aspects of a Great Retirement
    * Golden Years: Embracing Life Beyond Retirement


    If you like any of these, fire off an email and tell me so!

    Thanks for listening. I appreciate you!!

    The Journey to Retirement and Beyond

    The Journey to Retirement and Beyond

    "Beyond Retirement" is a fluid time encompassing all of your time after the flagpost of "retirement" has been passed. This podcast was developed to help listeners figure out their own journey by listening to the musings of the host and her guests as they travelled the road together.

    There's no right or wrong journey. There are many detours and U-turns along the way. But in the end, it's the journey that really matters, isn't it. It's not the destination, but how you got there.

    Do Creativity, Generosity, and Gratitude Live in You?

    Do Creativity, Generosity, and Gratitude Live in You?

    Creativity, generosity, gratitude...do they play a role in your life? They should!

    Start with gratitude. There is always something to be grateful for in your life. Finding that thing, even if it's small, will help you to grow and your happiness will increase.

    Last week, Hugh Willard talked about the intentional aspect of generosity - how, in order to be generous, we have to look inside ourselves. Gratitude helps you be generous. When you are grateful for what you have, you want to share it with others, so they can also feel what you feel.

    You don't think you're creative, because you've never been able to draw, or sing, or dance. So what?! There are many other outlets for creativity. Maybe you have an eye for interior design; perhaps you're great at telling stories to children. Maybe you're a whiz at math and can help the neighbourhood kids with their homework. Creativity comes in many forms! Find yours.

    Generosity & Gratitude in Later Life - with Hugh Willard

    Generosity & Gratitude in Later Life - with Hugh Willard

    Hugh Willard is a psychotherapist, the author of the new book Finding Beauty in the Gray: Stories and Verse from the Third Age and the host of the podcast Aging Well: Finding Beauty in the Gray [https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/aging-well-finding-beauty-in-the-gray/id1615237273]. Hugh has facilitated numerous workshops and taught courses on several topics relevant to folks in the second half of life.

    Today we talk about the importance of generosity in life, as well as its inherent link to gratitude. Hugh mentions that studies are showing substantial benefits to mental and physical health from increased efforts in generosity and gratitude.

    While there are many instances in life where we may not feel especially grateful or where our generosity is tested, Hugh points out that by taking the time to delve into our experience of age we can often find something to feel grateful for, or the process can lead us to acting in a more generous fashion than was our first inclination. And this is what gives us the feeling of satisfaction - giving of ourselves, especially in a time when it is difficult.

    Have You Got Any Wanderlust?

    Have You Got Any Wanderlust?

    Wanderlust is a strong desire to wander or travel and explore the world. Last week's episode with the hosts of the Beach Travel Wine podcast really sparked my own wanderlust!

    This week I talk a bit more about why I believe travel is so important and why it should be part of your retirement plan. You don't have to take off for distant countries; the village next to yours may have some fabulous treasures you've yet to discover. The point is, there is a great big world under our feet and it seems a shame to go through life without experiencing at least some of its diversity and wonder.

Awesome!

Too many people get caught up in the finance aspect of retirement. However a successful retirement involves so much more than just having enough money. Jacquie’s podcast is an amazing resource to help you understand what retirement is really all about. I highly recommend anyone close to or in retirement invest some time listening to Beyond Retirement.

Supergal2 ,

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!
