Don’t retire. 



The Untold Story of Retirement in America

How would you react if you discovered you could retire years earlier than you had planned? For most of us, that sounds like a pipe dream, but author and retirement planner Ben Taatjes had a client who could make it reality. The man entered his office with a few working years ahead of him and left with a two-week notice on his lips, but retirement didn’t deliver on the promises either of them believed it would.

What you will learn:
  • The way to seamlessly transition into a fulfilling and impactful retirement
  • The four major areas people fail in retirement
  • How “the showroom effect” can ruin your retirement
  • The worst retirement advice we’ve ever given
  • The importance of defining wealth versus income
  • How practicing retirement while working is crucial
  • Retirement isn’t the end, but rather a beginning

Indefiniteness of Purpose is a Bigger Deal Than You Thought

Traditional American retirement can be boiled down into two conversations: money and leisure. I challenge you to Google the word “retirement” and NOT find an article, blog or group either talking about finances or how to enjoy newfound freedom devoid of work. One of the foundational problems with conventional retirement wisdom is that it doesn’t address how or why to live with definiteness of purpose.
