An honest discussion about the retirement lie and how to live a future worthy of dreams

Why afterwork and who's the audience?

After years of seeing many financially successful clients struggle in retirement from a non-financial perspective, we wished to explore the intangibles behind what makes retirement "successful". We asked ourselves: how can we develop a roadmap of perspective for anyone, in any financial situation, to be able to make their future years the best, most purposeful and impactful season of their lives.

“The minute the retirement topic comes up, people naturally start thinking about how many dollars they’ll need. This book opens up a much wider lens, focusing on 10 of the most important NONfinancial factors in the years ahead.”
