Victory Lap Retirement: Mike Drak
Tue, 13 June 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
Co-author, Mike Drak of Victory Lap Retirement: Work While You Play, Play While You Work - The Joy of Financial Independence...at Any Age, a Globe & Mail best seller says that rules of retirement have changed with people living longer and possibly having to finance as many years in retirement as they had in their entire working career. And adding to the challenge is the current low interest period that we find ourselves in. The old idea of full-stop retirement-going from 100 per cent work mode to 100 per cent leisure mode- is now neither sustainable nor desirable. Besides many studies have shown that those who stay engaged, challenged, and stimulated stay healthier and live longer.
The key is to work because you want to and not because you have to. This talk will show you how to create the post-employment lifestyle that's right for you - a unique blend of work and play that allows you to live life to the fullest, on your terms, while you are young enough to enjoy it.
