Webinar Presenters: Andy Gogates and Rick Hearin Webinar Description: MAKE RETIREMENT...WORK! Wow. What does that mean??? It means that, for many of us Baby Boomers, moving into retirement is a highly ambiguous process. Sure, there are LOTS of resources on the financial aspect of retirement. But there is not much out there on actually making this phase our lives, well...WORK! Until now. MAKE RETIREMENT...WORK! focuses on the non-financial aspects of one of life's greatest, most complex, and potentially rewarding transitions. Key Takeaways: Discover how Baby Boomers are changing the fundamental concept of “Retirement” just as they have everything else in their lifetimes. Learn a new way to look at retirement that is derived from a concept developed in Okinawa, Japan. Explore the broad range of options available and how to successfully pursue those options to suit your interests, schedule, and the way of life you have envisioned for these years.
