So you’ve retired. Now what?

You have now found yourself “retired, retrenched, passed over” or whatever the newest politically correct way of saying that you are no longer employed at your life’s chosen career.

So now what?

Even if you have adequately prepared for the financial impact and are comfortable in your new status, you may have taken stock of your life and are finding yourself looking for a way to occupy your time, something that is simultaneously useful, challenging, and contributing to society.

But you want something on your terms that takes advantage of your unique experience. Maybe even something that is financially rewarding.

Perhaps, like me, you have looked around and are just a little intimidated by what technology is in use every day and everywhere (you should hear my grandchildren laugh when they see me trying to understand my smart phone and tablet) and you are just a little reticent to leave your retirement life and venture back into the commercial world.

Well don’t be!

Here at The Silver Life we have put together, and will continue to find, a variety of ideas on how to re-enter the work force; where to look for opportunities that fit you; how to acquire the additional skills you need to be successful today; how to start your own Silver Life business; or how to contribute to the success of others or favorite nonprofits.

So that is enough of looking at reruns of old television shows and wondering if this morning will be depressingly like the mundane previous day. Get up and get started or you might be having the same dull life next month and next year.

It’s time to get busy and get to living your own successful and useful Silver Life, go to and join the community.

Let us know how you do and what challenges you have, we’d love to hear from you and share your story with others. Catch us on Facebook if you’re savvy like that!
