So Baby Boomer

Baby Boomers are becoming aware that they are experiencing a different type of retirement than the previous generation.

The Best Years of Their Lives

Retirement is increasingly regarded as a transition to another work life--a work life that is more in tune with who you are and what you enjoy doing. Before retirement is the time to dream about what you would love doing and invest in that dream by being specific as to what, where and how to make your dream a reality.

In 2000, 37% of men and 31% of women age 55 to 64 were employed full or part-time while receiving pension income, according to investment firm TAA-CREF. Those proportions are likely to go higher with 8 out of 10 baby boomer saying they plan to work in retirement according to an AARP study.

A survey by Allstate Financial of Northbrook, IL of 1,004 Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1961, found 82 percent believe that retirement will be more fun and rewarding than their parent's retirement. Others believe it will be more active (65%) and the best years of their lives (63%).

The population bubble caused by the baby boom keeps floating up: Proportionately, there are more people over the age of 50 than ever before. Most Baby Boomers (the cohort of Americans born between 1946 and 1964) believe that they will still be working during their retirement years. Eight in ten say they plan to work at least part-time--and others envision starting their own business or working full-time at a new job or career--according to an AARP Segmentation Analysis: Baby Boomers Envision Their Retirement.

In the near future, the Baby Boomers will be the recipients of the largest intergenerational transfer of wealth in the history of this country if not the world. More than ten trillion dollars will be transferred from the boomers’ aging parents. While this transfer bodes well for the finances of a number of boomers, a significant number of less well off boomers will be unaffected and the wealth differentials which exist today will follow the baby boomer generation. These “wealth disparities” will determine the life style options for many aging boomers and will limit the choices of millions of Americans (especially women and minorities) in quality of health care, housing and numerous other areas.

What is Success?

Only you know what's important in achieving your vision of success in retirement. However, we all seek shared outcomes to provide a foundation for where we want to be. Here is one client's definition of the foundation for his success:

"Have you ever watched, listened, and felt someone tuning a guitar or other string instrument? That is what it is like to have the good fortune of connecting with John Agno. He is a living tuning fork and you're that string instrument. Today, I have greater self awareness, am more in step with my calling, and better able to appreciate the journey, including the valleys, than ever before. Thanks, John for helping me get attuned with my LifeSignature."

You, too, can drastically increase your chances of succeeding in business and life when you learn from a coach or mentor – someone who once stood in your place and overcame all obstacles to earn success and happiness.

The common thread throughout history has been that you learn mastery performance from the master. Whatever quality or skill you want to develop, you "get it" by hanging out with people who have it.
