Power UP Your Retirement Planning Seminar

Are you one of the 400,000 Canadians retiring this year? Are you excited about your retirement, but have not yet started planning and/or you have a few fears and concerns?

Retirement is not just about getting ready financially. Although many pre-retirees are concerned about their finances, money isn’t the only thing on their minds.

The impact of non-financial issues like social and emotional factors plays a big role in a successful retirement. In fact, research has shown that almost half of people entering into retirement struggle with the transition into a post-career life.

Redworks Communications and Coaching (Marielle) is pleased to bring to Saskatoon the first Power UP Your Retirement Lifestyle Seminar.

In this half-day seminar, Marielle will speak about the most common fears people have about retirement, have attendees think about their own fears; and come up with actions to overcome; and encourage them to take action (painless and priceless.)

You will also hear presentations from a seasoned realtor about downsizing (camper van anyone?); a top-notch lawyer who loves to help her clients organize their estate (really it will be fun); and a savvy certified financial planner who will mesmerize you (in a good way) about financial planning.

Retirement planning is more than just financial. Start planning today for a meaningful and fulfilling retired life.
