Our Course: Retirement and Your Next Stage of Life


Retiring Well -- That is Our Goal. 

We provide an integrated, retirement planning course touching on five key retirement areas: Lifestyle, Encore Work and Activities, Health and Wellness, Finances, and Your Customized Roadmap. Most retirement courses focus just on finances. However, our holistic course covers all aspects of life in retirement, including finances.


Each course meets once per week for 2 hours over 5 weeks, usually in the evenings.  Below are examples of some of the topics we may cover in the five sessions of the course. Since we will only have 2 hours for each session, we will not have time to cover all the topics noted below in each session, but we will cover many of the key topics.

Locations: 

We currently teach our course at Stanford University to their interested Staff. 


We also market customized courses to nonprofits, corporations, universities and colleges for a fee. We periodically offer a scaled-down version of our course pro-bono to the community.
