Finzel, Hans. Hicks, Rick. Launch Your Encore: Finding Adventure and Purpose Later In Life. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books. 2015.
As Baby Boomers enter retirement more active than previous generations, many must decide what to do with their time. Helping readers discover how to make the next years the best years, Launch Your Encore steps through life after careers, choices which must be made while finding purpose and meaning in life, all coupled with personal stories and examples of people already launched. Everyone eventually grows older and retires but not everyone is ready when the time comes…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Retirement? Though more than a few years away, there is no time like the present to plan and save for it. With lots of time suddenly available, those moments must be filled so life can be enjoyed. Whether that time includes a second career, volunteering, mission work or striving to reach a goal, retirement will be what we make of it. I appreciated the ideas as I consider my own encore (much to my children’s chagrin…hmm…payback? LOL). I think readers will pull different aspects out of this book depending on their place in life. Definitely thought-provoking.
