  • Book Recommendation: When I Grow Up I Want to Be

     

    Normally, this blog focuses on semi-retirement advice. But in this post I want to talk about a terrific new book that can help you provide career guidance to the special young people in your life.

  • The Changing Face of Retirement in 2015

    Retirement Green Road Sign and Airplane Above

    As we settle into 2015, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of the studies about boomers and retirement that appeared during 2014.
