Complacent Connie is the guy or gal that hits their number but still has a little more gas in the tank. They enjoy the work they do enough that the path of least resistance is to keep plugging away a few more years being paid handsomely. They’ve decided although they could retire, they aren’t quite ready for one reason or another. Not enough energy to start something new and why not sock away a few more dollars. This is a common retirement work strategy, as we as humans love inertia. This is a great way to top off the retirement bucket list with minimal effort.

Oh, Opportunistic Ollie, how I love thee. This is the retiree who realizes they have 40 years of expert experience that you simply can’t teach. Like in basketball how they always say you can’t teach height. Well in business, you can’t teach 40 years of experience. That said, employers love Ollie. He or she isn’t going to stick around forever and can help at a high leadership level pass down ages of wisdom. Generally speaking, these veterans warrant top dollar from the open market and can really cash in on a payday. But why you may be asking? Well, if you have big retirement goals or dreams and want to hoard an extra six or seven figures this is great for you. Or if you’ve always wanted that big-time position to be the feather in your cap for when you retire have at it. A lot of times for high-level execs it is really hard to drain all that octane out at once, and sometimes they need to burn the rest of the fuel in their engines before turning their sights on retirement.

The lifestyle Lucy person is one that says, you know what - 3 bad days, brother, I’m out. I’m sick of the rat race and am burned out. However, I wouldn’t mind work supporting some of my expensive habits or keeping me busy for a few more years. Thus, Lucy will find part-time work making more than she thinks. This could be in the world of consulting or mentoring at another company. It is a fun new challenge, but yet one Lucy doesn’t care too much about. She lends her talents and doesn’t ask much in return. Pay her fairly and let her work from home a few days a week. It is great for the employer and great for Lucy. This is a great option for many clients as it generally stops them from drawdown for a few more years and simply helps solidify the retirement picture.If you're ready to plan for your retirement goals, click below to schedule a free consultation with Diversified Lifelong Advisors.
We have a client, not named Charlie, who retired from work. He did so to go back to get his Ph.D. and literally be a student again. He is in his final year of a Ph.D. program before he can apply this talent in academia. This one seems the most bonkers to a lot of you, right? The reality is, this was his life challenge. A box or accomplishment he never got to check in his younger days. So why not go back to school to get your Ph.D. at the end of your career? For the Charlie’s of the world, they are looking for that new challenge. For this person it is his Ph.D., for others, it is starting a business or something else that otherwise would seem crazy to the outside world. The case here is NO REGRETS. Think if you are that inclined to start an uphill battle in your mid 50’s to 60’s, this battle isn’t a sudden one. Rather, it has been eating away at you since your youth, and what better time to say screw it, I’m all in when you don’t have to rely on finances anymore?If you're ready to plan for your retirement goals, click below to schedule a free consultation with Diversified Lifelong Advisors.
Many clients fall into the Passion Patty category. You see this is different than Challenge Charlie as this is more outward passion than inward. Think retiring to go work at the Boys and Girls Club, or foodbank. Maybe you’ve always loved kids and been surrounded by spreadsheets for 30-40 years. Now that we’ve met and you are able to retire, you decide you're going to give your time to your passions. The case here is that you get to spend your time doing something you truly love. Added bonus is if it pays you something even nominal those dollars are generally “bonus” dollars that will simply allow you some extra mad money. Or in many cases, we see this money get donated right back to one’s passion. It truly is a beautiful thing to see.

This person has decided their time has come to move on and be free. They may do some work here or there, they may not. What they know is they need to spend some time away from the rat race to contemplate what the next chapter looks like for them. Franny doesn’t want to make the wrong decision and instead decides she’ll let the decision come to her. This is a great option for that burnt-out individual or even that person living their happiest life. Work did not define them and they are ready to take that next step.If you're ready to plan for your retirement goals, click below to schedule a free consultation with Diversified Lifelong Advisors.
