    Confessions from Mid-Professionals

    There are some things you just don’t learn in college. And by some, I mean many. People give you advice about what to expect when you enter (wait for it…) the workforce! These pieces of advice could be invaluable, but either we are not ready to hear it, don’t retain it, can’t relate to it, […]

How to Love Your Retirement @ Online
Jul 8 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Barbara Waxman photoRetirement years can be full of fun and interesting times if one is properly prepared for them. Surprisingly, few people take the time to methodically think about what they want to do, achieve, or even be during their retirement years.
 
That’s unfortunate because every day of retirement is a day to be treasured.  Every moment that passes means that there are even fewer moments to come—fewer moments to be or do what you want to do.   
 
Barbara Waxman will give you a framework to think from as you near enter your retirement years so you will be able to take advantage of this memorable time in your life.
 
Join Barbara to hear how others are successfully entering their retirement years and learn how you can:
 
  • Stay healthy and fit
  • Keep your mind and spirit young
  • Do good by volunteering and making a difference
  • Travel and/or relocate
  • Make friends and keep romance in your life


A little bit of planning and goal setting can help you enjoy your retirement years and will guarantee many happy days ahead!
