Are you interested in living life on your own terms and creating a template for meaningful work to support it? Maybe it’s a matter of figuring out the next steps to make it happen. Savant has worked with many executives and professionals through this same transition by partnering with them to create a vision for the next chapter in their lives.

Learn how executives and successful professionals are pursuing a path between full-time work and full-stop retirement. A new chapter where they can repackage how work fits into their life, blurring the lines between work and retirement to experience the best of both worlds. There is no roadmap for those who wish to embark on this non-traditional path, and a complex tangle of decisions awaits.
How to Create a Plan When You’re Not Quite Ready to Retire
Our vision of retirement is changing. It’s no longer an all-or-nothing proposition. In fact, we conducted a retirement study with Absolute Engagement and found that some retirees wind up going back to work. In our study, 19 percent of those who retired decided to start working again. And it wasn’t about the money: 36 percent of these former retirees told us they were financially ready but not personally ready to quit working. Another 34 percent said they just couldn’t move on from working full time, while 28 percent said they didn’t feel fulfilled. We believe working with a Savant advisor can help you carefully plan your next chapter and help reduce your chances of encountering a “false start” retirement.
These days, it seems our entire workforce is reckoning with a desire to experience life on their terms. Whether you are 45 or 65, you may be thinking about your life differently now, and considering some new options for how to spend your time in the future.
