The vast majority of senior professionals don’t want to “retire.”

They have interesting, fulfilling work that they’d like to continue — just not at the frenetic pace of top corporate jobs. That’s why so many, lured by the promise of flexible hours, higher rates, and location independence, are intrigued by the idea of becoming a consultant or coach when they retire from their “official” career.

My point of view: do not limit yourself to these – often – “red seas” options. Find your blue ocean as a writer, an artist, as an entrepreneur or an educator. Keep in mind and be aware that you protect your assets: your financial capital, your intellectual capital, your working pleasure and sound relationships in a changing environment.
