Make sure your ready
1. If you have a spouse, significant other or partner also contemplating retirement both should independently complete the retirement inventory, compare notes and then jointly decide if you are really ready to retire.
2. Why duplicate the angst, bumps, bruises and missteps other retirees have experienced if we can learn from our collective mistakes and shared victories—life can be made easier with a little help from your friends; and, consider Dr. Rick and Retirement: Different by Design your new BFF.
3. Above all, whatever you do or decide now or in the future—Always Enjoy the Ride!
