"Patrice Jenkins understands the hesitation of stepping into retirement: the dread of endless, empty time. In lucid language with real life stories and specific suggestions, Jenkins shows us that we should never stop working. Instead, retirement allows us to find and do the work we love most; perhaps the most important work of our lives."

Are you avoiding retirement? Are you waking up in a cold sweat as your retirement date approaches? If it's not about the money, then what is it? If these questions resonate with you, then this book is for you.
If working isn't weird, how can we take the best of work and bring it into the best of retirement?
This 2 1/2 hour course explores what you will need in retirement that will create a sense of meaning and purpose at a time when you're no longer defined by your work title. You'll explore how to create a "new normal" by embracing new roles, being involved in work that is greater than yourself, and recreating conditions that contributed to your happiness at work.
If you are worried about the decision to retire, in this course you will find support that will help you feel prepared to step over the line. If you're in a work environment where it is not "safe" to talk about retirement, you'll benefit from having an experienced guide show you the way. Retirement is a major life decision and transition. You don't have to figure it out on our own.
