Read this article on CNBC recently about boomers seeking retirement coaches. I certainly see this trend. Amazing the difference between the boomers and the generation before them – in activities, goals, expectations.
Many boomers that I work with have no intention of “retiring.” Some do, especially with burnout jobs, but I will be they will keep themselves active after finishing their primary career. It’s just in their blood to do “something.” And advising these folks is just plain fun – love working with boomers, love helping them downsize and start their second life (life after kids move out, after first necessary but boring career ends, etc).
And I can see boomers contributing to this country’s vibrancy throughout their “retirement” years, as they achieve more, do more, and live more.
