Giving Back

Yes, Retirement Reinvented is about getting helpful information about retirement but it’s also about giving  …..    about giving of your experience and your time, and putting something back into the community.

NEW  Research at Boston College shows that apart from financial reasons, many people keep working because they want to stay active or "contribute and be productive."  More people are using the second half of life to take on second careers, start businesses or follow long-delayed dreams to serve their communities.   Social entrepreneurship pioneer and Civic Ventures CEO Marc Freedman has published a book on the subject, The Big Shift. "It's a time," he writes, "when many have insight about what matters, a special impetus to act on this wisdom, and the ability to do so. In this respect, it's a potential sweet spot, a confluence rather than a reinvention."
