Retirement has changed, and America’s most trusted career counselor is here to help! Coming up April 18th, Janeane spoke with Robin Ryan TODAY (4/18/18) about her latest book, Retirement Reinvention

LISTEN to today's conversation with Robin Ryan,
author of Retirement Reinvention!

The old model of retirement (that of endless golfing and not much else) has changed. The majority of today’s retirees intend to keep working in the next phase of their lives, but often aren’t sure what that phase will look like, or how to get started. Robin Ryan has been helping clients land their dream job for over 20 years. Now, she shares how to take the skills that they have been honing for their entire career and put them to use to lead a more meaningful and fulfilling retirement.

In her book, RETIREMENT REINVENTION: Making the Most of the Next Stage of Your Life and Career, she shares instructions for leaving old careers behind, pinpointing interests and skills, and defining new, satisfying opportunities that balance work and leisure. From starting a new business to shifting to the non-profit sector, to volunteering, Ryan’s advice will help new and upcoming retirees take control in the second act of their lives.

Robin Ryan shares how to:

· Identify what it is that gives life meaning, whether it’s social interaction, community involvement, creative problem solving, or travel; and find out how to integrate that into retirement

· Ensure that unexpected aspects of retirement (changes in relationships with spouses, relocation concerns) are handled before they become a problem

· Visualize exactly how much time on a daily and weekly basis will now be “free,’ and how to make that time fulfilling, stimulating, and worthwhile

· Plan the transition period from full-time work to retirement

· Avoid becoming a “failed retiree” and make the most of this new chapter!

Ryan shatters the myths that retirement is the end of work, that it’s a time of decline, that new career opportunities are for young people alone, and that people only work during their retirement because they need money. Instead, she offers practical advice for the next act of life and career.
