I recently read an article, written by Victoria Tomlinson CEO of Next-Up, talking about shaping the future after work. I was immediately caught up and interested in sharing in the discussion about what comes after an established work life, and to offer my own perspectives on how people experience this period of life, aka retirement.
Politics, business, property, finance and sport are of particular interest to us but we will listen to anyone who has a suitable ‘voice’ and idea to write for us. All we are looking for are writing skills – of course – credibility and experience, passion and commitment to write for us consistently.
It doesn’t matter who you are and how successful you have been, don’t be dismayed if you find the transition of leaving corporate life to pursue a portfolio career or unretirement or whatever, very hard.
I recently came across this article, entitled Wealthy enough to retire; too bored to stay retired, by Rob Walker in the Seattle Times. The piece offers some really great solutions to what Walker describes as “the most enviable workplace dilemma of all time”.
I have just been on BBC Radio York commenting on retirement (or unretirement as we prefer to call it!) following the announcement yesterday that the Archbishop of York will retire in 2020, a few days before he is 71.
