They say that 50 is the new 40. If you're over 50, chances are you feel more vital, energetic, and passionate than ever. While you may be ready to retire, you may not be ready to stop working entirely. These days, life after work no longer conjures up images of couples wandering the malls, playing golf, and taking endless Caribbean cruises. As baby boomers reach their 50s and 60s, they are redefining what it means to retire. What they want is joy, vitality, and meaning in their lives. The truth is that this is not your parents' version of retirement, and just because you may have stopped working doesn't mean you have to stop living life to the fullest. You may want to choose a completely different career path or pursue a whole new interest.
