For many of us, the idea of retirement conjures visions of leisure, travel, and time for all those projects we’ve been meaning to do. But all that free time can be daunting, too. Certified Retirement Coach Wendy Lacroix offers tips for a successful retirement beyond the honeymoon period.
“This type of coaching is not financial,” says Lacroix. “What I do is help people create both a vision and a plan for what they want to do when they retire.”
As the biggest demographic wave in Canada’s history reaches retirement age, help with the emotional and mental aspects of retirement can be as important as financial well-being, explains Lacroix.
“As people are living well past the traditional retirement age, in order to have a fulfilling, happy, and healthy retirement, they need to prepare,” she says. The presentation aims to help with that, offering ten tips for a successful retirement with time at the end for questions.
Wendy Lacroix has lived in Nelson for more than 30 years. She’s raised a family here, and worked for many years as an employment counsellor and job coach before receiving her diploma in Professional Counselling and Certified Retirement Coaching. The presentation is free to the public.
