Episode details

Joanne Waldman, who coaches not only retirees but other retirement coaches, talks about what it takes to make a successful transition from work to retirement. In this interview she discusses:

  • The value of being creative with change.

  • Why going from working to not-working is not automatic.

  • Why it’s hard work to shed your work identity and find your “authentic self.”

  • The value of planning ahead - while in your 50s, if you can.

  • Why the new focus is not on retirement but on longevity.
