Life After Financial Independence
A look at the new normal for retirement
When you think about retirement, what comes to mind? For many, retirement is a “finish line” somewhere off in the distance. When the social security system was set up, the goalpost was set at age 65 – largely because at the time the average person had a life expectance of 68.
Fast forward to today. Massive advances in medical science, and healthier lifestyles have seen life expectancy skyrocket. Today retirement isn’t the end, it’s literally the beginning of your second or third “act”. For many Canadians, a full half of their adult lifespan will be spent in this phase. Clearly our traditional thinking about retirement needs to be re-worked – both from a financial standpoint, and from a philosophical one.
In this talk, Jonathan Chevreau will offer a sneak peak into his latest book – he’ll discuss this new phase of life, building upon the concept of financial independence as a jumping off point for reinventing yourself. He will examin the economics of early retirement, “encore” careers, and how pursuing your passion can offer the key to a meaningful life and the money you’ll need to live it to the fullest.
Jonathan Chevreau is now available for speaking engagements.
