“We all want a big table with four strong legs to hold the banquet of our bonus years. The legs are Money Maturity, Wellness, Using Our Time Purposefully and Remastering our Identity. Mapping Your Retirement is the workbook that reaches into key transition topics necessary to bring it all together when planning your next chapter. Whether retirement is your cup of tea or not, this book is about embracing the abundance of our gifted years ahead.”

Rest of Your Life

“Although I’ve been what is labeled ‘retired’ for over a decade, I found Mapping Your Retirement extremely useful and very wise. I’ve discovered that these later years are indeed a continuing journey. I’ve found that my needs are different at age 75 than 65 and certainly different than in my 50’s. Our aging process benefits from reassessing your journey along the way and Mapping Your Retirement can serve as an important guide at any age.”

—Connie Goldman, author of Secrets of Becoming a Late Bloomer, The Gifts of Caregiving, and Late Life Love —Romance and New Relationships in Later Years

It helps one create a vision and assess the physical, mental, social, spiritual, and financial dimensions available and necessary to actualize the vision. It is the most comprehensive guide I have seen and an important resource for those approaching this stage of life.

—Marilyn Hennessy, President, Retirement
