Have you ever felt like you have only been told half of the real story? Like something is missing but you’re just not sure what it is or why someone won’t come out and say it? Have you ever felt that way about retirement?
Reality is, the media and major news headlines have done a good job pointing out part of the current retirement crisis. In fact, it has become common knowledge that a growing number of baby boomers are desperately behind in saving and in danger of working until their final days. The problem is that everyone is talking about getting people to retirement, leaving those who are going through it to fend for themselves….to figure it out on their own. The reality is, retirement is one of the most highly regarded and sought after phases of our existence. However, it’s also one of the least understood and most traumatic changes that people undertake in life.
This is the real retirement crisis because if new retirees don’t have a plan to address the mental, social, and physical aspects of retirement they can struggle with their transition and waste some of the best and most important years of retirement trying to figure it out. But it doesn’t have to be this way, and an exclusive group of people, Certified Professional Retirement Coaches, are positioned to make a major impact during this time of great need and change.
