My goal with Retire To - Not From is to raise awareness that planning as well as money should be banked for retirement and that one is as important as the other. I've talked to people that have fantastic retirement plans and can't wait to get to it and plan on retiring as early as they can. Unfortunately, for most people that is not the case. Most people put so much time and effort into career and family, when retirement comes around they are taken by surprise and it ends up to be the biggest failure of their life. I think it's a mindset we need to get out of and go ahead and accomplish more after retirement. I have found out people may not know how start businesses or charitable organizations independently of corporation.
Reading Retire To – Not From will encourage change surrounding any negative behavior brought about by retiring and produce a stronger retiree with purpose. Experts say leaving home is a persons biggest life transition. If this is true, retiring has to be the photo finish second place. The difference is when you leave home you are leaving to something, (college, military, marriage, career) when you "retire" unless carefully planned there may not be much to retire to.
