Retirement – Try Before you Buy

What if it was possible for you to “test drive” your retirement?  You know, try it out for a while and get the feel of things before you commit 100 percent. It sounds a bit hypothetical, but what if?

You might identify possible pitfalls before you fell in.

– You might find you need to be better prepared before taking the plunge either monetarily or from a non-financial point of view.

– You might find that you prefer working over retired life.

Few of us have the luxury of a practice retirement but I was fortunate enough to get a taste of what  retirement could be like before retiring full time.

Take a look at my latest US News & World blog Why you should take a retirement test drive to see what I learned from my experience.
