Retirement-Online: What's New?

Lots of retirement feedback, support and ideas from Wendy, Retirement Enthusiast/Coach, AND retirees worldwide who have "been there and done that" already!

Let's share the Retirement Journey together...

It never ceases to amaze me how one persons words, the exact words you need to hear, can change your life! That's why I welcome all the posts and retiree feedback on my site -- I can't possibly have answers for what everyone needs to hear. 

As a Community, we have many different retirement/aging experiences and thoughts to share.

  • You never know when your story is exactly what another retiree is going through (yeah, you'd be surprised how often that happens). 
  • The "WOW, it's not just me" happens. This simply lets you know you are not crazy, your issues happen to many others too.

  • Feedback is provided by readers and maybe just maybe one is the key to your moving forward in life. Someone experienced the same thing, one retiree with the right empathy for your situation,  or someone gave you a little kick in the butt!

Please share your own story for feedback from retirees -- OR -- comment on the stories below to share your two cents.

You never know if your voice will bring that one retiree clarity for their future!

Pay it Forward! 

 Thank you!

Pssst!  Share your story here!  -- OR -- Read Submissions Below!
