Retiring with attitude: approaching and relishing your retirement

Retiring with attitude: approaching and relishing your retirement

Lodge, Caroline, author; Carnell, Eileen, author

Is your retirement date looming? Do you fear the void that lies ahead or are you excited about the opportunities the future holds? Or do you have no intention of giving up work altogether, planning instead to phase your commitments out gradually, take on freelance work or develop side projects? Retirement these days is no longer simply a case of being presented with a carriage clock on your 65th birthday, then heading off to play golf for the next 30 years. Changes to life expectations and pension provisions have meant that people are now expected to work longer and think more proactively about their future. Set against this are the challenges of ageism and financial insecurity, the demands of family, and the stress induced by this time of transition. In this thoughtful and constructive guide, Eileen Carnell and Caroline Lodge lead you step-by-step through the issues you will face
