Your retirement is fast approaching. It should be a time of celebration, but you have more questions than answers.
Will you struggle to fill your days with meaningful activities? Will you lose your sense of identity and purpose? Will you outlive your money?
The combination of longer life expectancies, declining government support, and a reduction in job security means you need to completely rethink your approach to this phase of life.
Fortunately, there is hope.
In End of the Retirement Age, David Kennedy presents an optimistic exploration of the forces shaping the retirement landscape, the surprising economic opportunity of an ageing population, and the inspiring ways a generation is redefining retirement in pursuit of meaning, purpose and prosperity.
• Why retirement in its current form is redundant.
• How you can adapt to the changing retirement landscape, including tips and strategies to help you prepare.
• Why older Australians hold the key to Australia’s economic prosperity.
• Inspiring stories from a broad cross-section of retirees.
If you are serious about planning for life after work, this book will help you understand the challenges and opportunities of the new retirement playing field, while providing insights, stories and strategies to help you adapt and thrive in this new reality.
The retirement age is over. What takes its place has the potential to be transformational.
