THE SHOW IS NOT OVER YET
IT'S TIME FOR OUR ENCORE
CONTINUING TO MAKE OUR LIVES & THE WORLD BETTER
Welcome. I’m Ed Taylor and this podcast is about having a better retirement.
More accurately, it’s about having a better time during your retirement years.
According to a Federal Reserve Board study, a full 1/3 of those who retire return to work on either a full or part time basis. More never retire at all, they just shift from full time to side-hustles or gigs.
Even the Department of Labor has noticed the increase in the labor-force participation rates by those 65 and older. In 1985 only 10.8% of those over 65 were working. That number has nearly doubled and currently stands at 19.6% and growing.
So if you’re like me and millions of others your retirement will not look like those typical of our parents generation.
We’ll be talking about working both for others and building your own little retirement business or businesses… I have several… and I love it!
Imagine becoming a designer of butterfly gardens, or a book editor, or a performer, or educator… imagine taking a hobby or a passion project and building a little business out of it… we’ll talk about it all and we’ll have guests sharing their experiences so we can learn from what they’ve done and oftentimes be inspired by them.
We’ll be talking about travel, health, loss and finances.
We’ll talk about medicare and insurance… I just went through this. I’m telling you I love living in our current age, the ‘age of options’ I call it. We have so many options for every single thing in your lives, the soap we use, the bread we buy, our cars, our insurance we have options coming out our ears… and it’s a good thing. I love it… but it can be a bit overwhelming. Making decisions around medicare felt that way to me… we’ll have an episode with a medicare expert.
If you’re like me you want to have a sense of meaning and purpose in your life. We’ll talk about passion projects and obtaining and maintaining a psychology that centers us and helps us experience the positive emotions of optimism, excitement & love and avoid negative emotions like doubt and fear.
I’m sure this podcast will evolve over time, we’ll undoubtedly dedicate episodes that I have not even thought of yet… I do know. We’ll have fun. We’ll be honest. We will have inspirational & informative guests. We’ll help our listeners make their retirement years even better.
