So…. I’m in the dentist chair…dental hygiene day….and the lovely young woman starts telling me about her parents….and how they have just recently retired….and guess what!?!?…they are struggling to settle in….
Of course this led to a healthy discussion (between rinses) of my retirement coaching business…and how it may have helped them to be better prepared….
Both of her parents retired in late fall…her mom had been a government worker and her dad had worked in a mill…and they were ready!….but the first few months brought them close to a break up!…and while things are settling down for them, they are still working on finding their routine…:-) How much easier it might have been, if they had taken some time to plan and discuss how retirement may look for them. I think I may have my first referral!!
