Create a tool that will help people prepare to retire.
Self Initiated – May 2016

The task:Prepare people to enter retirement.

Retirement is not the end, it can be a new beginning, a chance to build a new body, develop dormant talents and start a new life for the next 30 years.

The booklet isn't a "you should do this and then your retirement will be awesome" sort of booklet. This is a "use this book to find out what it really is you want to do with the next part of your life" kind of book. A tool, not a guide. The booklet encourages people to ask themselves important questions about the next stage in their life. It asks them to consider finances, social support, hobbies and backup plans. The book doesn't act as a step by step guide, but enables people entering retirement to gain clarity on the opportunity that retirement offers.
