Show Notes for this Episode:
Have you given much thought to what you might be like in your retirement years? Although 20 to 30 years seems far off, it will be here before we know it.
Let’s face it though, it’s tough to not only think of yourself in 20 to 30 years but also to give your future self some TLC now! In my interview with psychologist and bestselling New York Times Author, Daniel Crosby, we talked about this very issue of how to start caring more today about your future self.
In this podcast episode, I talk about the 4 types of retirees that are discussed in the book What Retirees Want, a Holistic View of Life’s Third Age. The authors grouped retirees based on their lifestyles, attitudes, aspirations, needs and priorities.
The 4 types of retirees are: Ageless Explorers, Comfortably Content, Live for Todays, Worried Strugglers
You will enjoy learning more about this as you will probably identify with one or more of these categories based on your life today. The good news about being in midlife is that you still have time to change your trajectory and create the kind of retirement lifestyle that you desire.
35% of retirees fall into the Worried Strugglers category. Don’t let that be you! Tune into this episode of the Retirement Money Gal Podcast to learn more.
