  • Thanks for having me on the show – a great discussion on the steps everyone should consider as they make the transition into retirement.

  • MARTIN FANO says:

    I have just found your site. Just listened to the talk. I am 216 days from retirement. I have basically done what you have been talking about. I am a retired Army Officer.. and soon to be a retired Civil Servant…so we are talking 42 years of Government service. So 2 pensions. I am 67 now…I will be 68 and 4 months when I finally retire. I have the money part secured….I will take SSN at age 70…we have zero debt…house , cars, all paid in cash. The what am I going to do with my time has been the biggest fear for me….I am an active healthy person….I started volunteering last year at my local State Park and at a local Aircraft Museum. Last month I started sell photographs at the local market. Photography has been my life long hobby. I took an on line course called: “The future of You” which basically dealt with the what am I going to do with all this free time. I have signed up to your site and will pass tis on to my fellowe employee’s who can use this information.

      You have definitely got some big decisions coming over the next year, and we are pleased to hear you putting some of this in practice!

      Sounds like you’re doing some of the right things (The Future of You). We had the opportunity to interview Nan and Lisa, Co-founders at the Future of You. That episode dropped on Monday this week! Check it out!
