Retirement Redefined! Creative and energetic living is not restricted to the young. Using Ernie Zelinski’s funny, insightful book The Joy of Not Working, we will address the myths & facts of Retirement. We’ll compare the 3 biggest concerns people have 1 year Before Retirement with how it changes one year later. You will design a plan to meet the 3 most important human needs – Structure, Purpose and Community after leaving the workplace. Everyone is welcome – whether you are planning several years ahead OR only have a month left- (eeeek!). P.S.—This class in NOT about financial information, it’s about everything else that makes life good.
