Women and Retirement–Good Article

I love it when I ask my students at what age do they plan to retire.  I get a wide variety of answers–from 35 to 75. There are even young ladies who profess they will never work, so therefore they will never retire.

One of my favorite columnist, Mr. Rodney Brooks who is published in the USA Today among other publications had a wonderful article on women and retirement that I thought you might like.  Take a look and contemplate on what Mr. Brooks has to say.  Traveling, taking classes and so much more will probably cost more than you think.

*How are you planning for your retirement–please share with us. Here’s something that I did.

**I retired from one career and started another one.  It has been fun, and it has allowed me the opportunity to do more of the things that I want to do.  How are you planning for your retirement?  Share with us!!

Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.   No matter how old you are, you can still save a little more for that retirement.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
