A Key Role being a Sorority House Director plays

Boomer women have worked/waited decades for retirement. Although the article featured here (see link below) is not written by a woman, fellow Boomer George Jerjian has some advice for all of us. He believes one of the key strategies for a happy retirement is finding purpose. In fact, he’s built a consulting business around it. That’s how many in this huge generation are searching for meaning during this later chapter of life. That’s rather mindboggling!

A lot of articles center around financial planning. So this one brings up a different aspect of retirement that was surprising — finding purpose.

You’ve got a worthwhile purpose

And here’s an added financial benefit — after a certain age, you can collect your Social Security you’ve earned from your past work, plus this salary. Sweet! That’s why we bring your attention to this job that can be pursued in retirement — as well as years before that date arrives.

“Depending on when you plan to retire, you may have another 30, 40, 50 or more years of life — and that’s a hell of a long time to drift aimlessly,” says George Jerjian. Read his article below:
