Business of Ageing Niagara Network: How to Design a Healthy and Fulfilling Retirement Lifestyle 5:30 pm
Business of Ageing Niagara Network: How to Design a Healthy and Fulfilling Retirement Lifestyle @ Niagara College, Welland Campus - Room AH255
Apr 17 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Mike Drak, Co-Author of “Victory Lap Retirement” speaks on “How to design a heathy fulfilling retirement lifestyle” The Key to a Happy Retirement may be not retiring. The rules of retirement have changed and there’s more at risk than ever before. People are living longer and have to finance as many years in retirement as they had in their entire working career. The old idea of full-stop retirement is now neither sustainable nor desirable. The key is to work because you want to work and not because you have to. Victory Lap Retirement will challenge your thinking about your own employment lifestyle but also the new lifestyle of many of your clients and customers who have attained financial independence or “Findependence”. Come learn the principles of Victory Lap and Findependence at any age to better balance your work, family and leisure time and live a longer, happier, healthier and more fulfilled life. This event is hosted by the Business of Ageing Niagara Network.
