I’ve talked often about the transition to Retirement and how for some it isn’t any easy path to transition, including my own experience and difficulty adjusting to a new life.
My guests today decided to find out what Women experience in life after work. So began the huge exercise of interviewing women and collating their responses. I’m delighted today to introduce my guests, Leslie Inman and Roxanne Jones, the cofounders of Retirement Voices, a community of women helping women navigate retirement.
During our conversation, we discussed:
- Defining Retirement
- Self esteem and Identity
- Finding the right time balance
- Learning to say ‘No’
- Their soon-to-be-published book: Retirement Voices: Women reveal what life after work is really like…
A three-part question included in the questionnaire was: What was easy, what was difficult and what surprised you about retirement?
What would your answers be?
