Why do so many men struggle once they leave the workforce? Isn’t it what they’ve been working towards for their entire career?
When successful men make the move out of full-time work into the next stage of their life, many are challenged by the transition. Though they’ve got the finances sorted, money’s the first – and often only – thing they tend to concern themselves with beforehand, when it’s actually the last thing they need worry about. Beyond the money, there’s now an extra forty to sixty hours a week that they have failed to plan and prepare for.
Beyond the Money is a practical guide for successful men leaving full-time work. Filled with case studies, exercises and tips for managing change, it helps you make the leap into the next stage of your life.
At long last here’s a book that explores seven wealth areas – beyond the money.
Author Steve Mendl explains how to make the transition from full-time work smoother, simpler and a lot more enjoyable for you, your friends and the whole family.
This book is for you if you are:
- Aged between forty-five and sixty-five and planning to leave the full-time workforce.
- Wondering what you will do with an extra forty to sixty hours a week and wanting to avoid falling off the ‘retirement cliff’.
- Feeling hesitant about one of the biggest life changes that people go through.
- Eager to make the next stage of your life meaningful, satisfying and enjoyable.
