Jack Beauregard is recognized as our nation's leading expert on how baby boomers can create success and significance in the next stage of their lives- and in particular, he is a leading expert on how baby boomer business can create meaningful and fulfilling new lives.
Millions of Baby Boomers are now reaching the age when they are getting ready to retire—or when they should be thinking about and preparing for retirement .But the concept of "traditional retirement" is inappropriate for Baby Boomers. Because of our unique history and accomplishments, Baby Boomers in their 50s and 60s are not ready to go "out to pasture" or sit on the porch in rocking chairs. Instead, we are getting ready to move into a new stage of active life, that can go on for another 10, 20, or 30 years. I call this new stage of life "the Platinum Years"
For previous generations, leaving one's work meant retiring and moving into the so-called "Golden Years" But when we think about those "Golden Years," you and I know that they are assumed to be years of decline, when we are expected to age, lose our abilities and will no longer make a productive contribution to the world. The typical image of Retirement and the "Golden Years" is of someone who plays golf all day or sits on the porch in a rocking chair, a person who is no longer making a meaningful contribution to life.
This active new stage of life that Jack calls "The Platinum Years" can continue for another 10, 20 or 30 years. Realizing that we can leave our current full-time work and move into these fulfilling new Platinum Years opens up many new opportunities for what we can do in this exciting next stage of life.
