This episode take you back on the 24th of October 2016 where I was a guest on The Podcasters Unplugged. In here we talk about how I got started into podcasting from seeing a need in the market and wanting to help others retire successfully and happily.

As you all know, I was a financial adviser for 25 years. Then after being in that profession for so long, I decided that I needed a change. So I basically went from a large practice to a very small one. I was looking at my clients and I thought, "Wow! Money does matter, but it’s not everything." You can have millions of dollars and have a horrible retirement or you can have almost no money and completely rocking it. And I thought to myself, what is the difference between these two types of people? Then I thought I needed to learn more about this. That is why I started this show. The show is an interview format and I interview either experts or regular people on how to Rock Your Retirement.
In this week’s episode, I got featured in Yaya Diamonds' Dream Chasers podcast; This was 2 years ago to date and we talked about the Secrets about Retirement. Yaya has been inspiring and changing people’s lives for over 8 years. She believes that in every state of life, whether it’s the beginning or the end, there’s always something to do. Your life just doesn’t stop.
You can retire at almost any age. One of my guests retired at 40. She and her husband were living in Los Angeles and they had these highly powered, highly pressured jobs working 80 hours a week. Then, one day she picked up all her stuff and moved to Costa Rica. That is why you can retire anytime you want; You just have to make sacrifices. Her sacrifice was really a great internet like what we have, but she still loves it.

This is the last episode of this 4-part series podcast, and today we will talk about the Unretirement. You won't find this word inside a dictionary, but the question is why should you a retiree who have worked for many years, consider to unretire yourself? In the first episode of this series, we talked about why it is important to Rightsize Our Homes. The second part talked about the value of owning a second home, while in the last episode we have dwell into why it is the right time to feel contentment in life as we approach our golden years.
These days, many workers who have retired are coming back into the fold. Your life doesn't end at 65 years of age, That is why older workers unretire because many of us derive work as our sense of purpose. People are living longer and because of that they are healthy enough to take on another job that can give them a sense of fulfillment in their career.
As we approach our golden years, it is a great time that we feel that contentment with life. No more worries, no more insecurities, and no more busy schedules in life. What you need to have is that freedom to do all the things you ought to do. The article, The Secret to Aging Well? Contentment dwell into the subject that in order for us to age gracefully, we need to have that contentment with life.
We have always been on the lookout for information and ideas about positive aging. We have so much to learn from the people who have gone before us and are ahead of us and this article is a perfect example of it. There are plenty of messages from the media and the world that as you get older, you lose things and have to be taken care of. Kathy believes that there is still a lot of positive information out there, but it requires a little shift in mindset. We change, we are different as we age, so why not find out what that is, what that means and make the best of it.
