Until fairly recently, most Americans equated the end of a successful career with the beginning of retirement. No more. Now they want to stay in the game (or better, change the game). They want to leave a mark. Make a difference—and continue to make a living.
Nine million baby boomers have already decided to choose alternatives to the traditional retirement model, to enjoy meaningful work in their "encore careers." Another 31 million are interested in making the leap. We’ll discuss, The Encore Career Handbook, which is designed as a road map to finding passion, purpose, and a paycheck in the second half of life.
