About the Book

Today, there certainly are some people who still embrace the traditional retirement view. Once they put in their thirty-five years with the company and get the gold watch, they want to do a little more than play golf and chill out. They have reached the finish line, and they’re done. There’s nothing wrong with that mind-set, but we’ve found over the years that our clients who “retire to” rather than “retire from” tend to find more fulfillment in their golden years.
