Create Purpose in Retirement


Are you retired, or thinking about retirement, and want this phase of life to be vibrant and purposeful?

The transition to retirement can be challenging and many find it hard to adjust. Often leaving a career feels like a loss of identity, value, and purpose.

At this stage of life you have so much to offer – your years of experience, the challenges you have overcome, all the changes you’ve been through – made you a resourceful person with wisdom, skills, and talents.

Instead of being scary, retirement can be an exciting time of life where you can forge new identities, and create great inner fulfillment, meaning, and value along with having outright fun!

Challenge starts Monday, June 24th!  Sign up by clicking here.

Over these 5 days you will:

+ focus on what you are retiring TO rather than retiring FROM

+ connect with what matters to you and create PURPOSE in retirement

+ develop a new identity beyond what your job label was

How does this challenge work?

EVERY day for five days (starting Monday, June 24th), you will receive an email with a short video training along with inspired actions that you can implement easily and immediately. Each day’s activity builds on the next so that by the end of the week, you have a clear picture of a purposeful life that you are excited about.


How long are the training videos available?

You can access them for the duration of the challenge week (plus the weekend in case you fall behind). If you wish to keep them forever, they will be made available for purchase.


What if I get behind?

It’s okay! Try to make it up as soon as you can, so you can build momentum and start creating a life you really love. Habits take regular attention to create.


I know someone who could definitely benefit from this training! Can I send them this info?

Absolutely! Just send them the address for this page and they can sign up too. It’s especially beneficial to do the challenge with someone to encourage each other, keep each other accountable, and keep momentum going long after the challenge is over!


Do I have to be a retiree to join?

No you don’t – many people start planning for retirement many years before they actually leave the workplace. If this challenge resonates with you, then you are more than welcome regardless of where you are in life.
