Retirement Planning


Pre retirement or entering midlife are key times to re-evaluate personal, work and lifestyle strategies and goals. Midlife Design’s expertise enables you to redesign your life’s key elements: career, relationships/family and lifestyle in a way that offers possibility, new beginnings and a fulfilling future focus through;

Reassessing your talent, strengths, values and vision. Years of being focused on a particular job or role for example, can mean that transferable abilities are blurred,

Refocusing for opportunities that are aligned with your identified talents, values and vision. Outcomes can vary from a new career, own business, community and family involvements to creating a combination that balances stimulation and income needs.

The first half of life are busy years of establishing career, mortgage and family. These roles also contribute to our self identity and provide a framework for measuring success.

In midlife as we enter into pre retirement planning there is a greater freedom from these establishment demands, while there can also be a sense of dissatisfaction and uncertainty about the future. Living longer brings choices and possibilities beyond the traditional concept of retirement to be explored.

Midlife Design facilitates growth and change for people dealing with midlife and pre retirement life work choices, however financial planning advice is not provided.
