My Mission for Retirement-Online: I totally support Boomers in finding real, authentic retirement lifestyles. What does that mean?
Wendy's Authentic Retirement definition: AUTHENTIC RETiREMENT means a retirement lifestyle that is true to your core self. Time to find the real you... the YOU who really lives each day, the YOU who is excited to wake up every morning, the YOU enjoying moments in life that others pass by.
It's time to Get Real! We still have lots to contribute to this world, locally or globally!
My thought is that we learn, we work and have families, then we retire. Some folks may find the perfect employment that let's them soar. Some of us find passion in our occupation, only to have it wane as we work. Many just find work and do the job to earn a living.
In Retirement, it's time to take back our lives. Living life based on what we truly love in life has got to make retired life just ROCK!
Let me help you live an active, engaged lifestyle, even though you are aging and slowing down a bit. You can remain smart, witty and social. You can discover real purpose for your days while helping the world for the Greater Good. Let me help you find fulfillment and yet contentment in this stage of life. Life is Good!

P.S. I retired April 2010 after twenty-five years as a Retirement Manager (and 35+ years my local govt. employer) and have worked on this community for the last five years. As a THIRTY YEAR retirement enthusiast, I am living through my own retirement transition now! Yikes! Oddly enough, I am learning more about the REAL "me" now! Why did it take me all these years to stop and think about ME!?
