No longer retiring at 65 and dying soon there after, people are ending up with a whole lot of life left after their main careers are over. A lot of boomers are asking the post career question, “What’s next?” Most of us don’t believe in the “R” word, traditional retirement. Launch Your Encore is the answer to the “what’s next,” question. We explore how to find adventure and purpose later in life with intentionality. There are dangers to avoid and adventures to explore. Our passion is to help you find meaning and purpose in your sixties, seventies, and eighties (What we have coined as the 60-80 window). With the average U.S. life expectancy reaching eighty, we are entering an exciting new life stage. It just might be that our final act is our greatest!
Navigating the waters of post career can be challenging. In Launching Your Encore, Finzel and Hicks give great guidance on how to pass the rapids successfully.Your best years may well be ahead.I highly recommend this book for all who are retired or contemplating finding new adventure later in life.
Launch Your Encore is giving us the steps to increase our unique contributions to the world as we age, and to continue to live lives rich in love, friendships, and compassion – so we will not be among those referenced by Oliver Wendell Holmes: “Alas for those that never sing, but die with their music still in them.”
