FAQs – One on One Retirement Coaching
It takes a lot of disciplined financial planning and preparation to be able to retire today, and especially to be able to consider early retirement.
But being able to retire financially is only one part of the equation. People are often shocked upon entering retirement, how challenging the transition to life in retirement can be. After the honeymoon period is over, people begin to realize that some things they may have taken for granted are missing. Purpose. Structure. Social Relationships. Some are surprised to find that after years of striving for retirement, they find themselves bored. Perhaps it’s no surprise that studies are finding that up to 25% of retirees are unretiringwithin five years.
But there’s a better way. Just as you planned for the financial side of retirement or early retirement, you can invest time in preparing for the non-financial side. Why? Because you have two key resources to consider – your money and time. You can always find ways to generate more money, but your time is a very precious commodity.
It’s simply not wise to waste your most precious asset. A Merrill Lynch/Age Wave study found that retirees took an average of 2.5 years to sort out what they wanted to do in retirement. A retirement coach helps you zero in on what you’re looking for in yourretirement – and helps you get there faster.
