I actually retired from two careers: one as a teacher (26 years), and one as a university administrator (8 years). The final retirement came as a surprise in just one day, without any prior notice. No wonder some reflection was in order. Whether we share the same demographic or not, I'm hoping you will find some ideas to ease your transition and power you to a delightful new life!
There is no playbook for retirement!
