I just turned 64 and am thinking about retirement but am wondering: does retiring have to mean resting?

Q: I just turned 64 and am thinking about retirement but am wondering: does retiring have to mean resting?

A: Actually, what we used to think of as retirement now presents an opportunity for an “encore career.” Many lawyers reinvent themselves altogether, based on a long held hobby, or continue to work in a senior capacity, at their current workplace or in a non-profit role. Take a look at sites like encore.org, consider becoming a SCORE mentor, and fill in the short Volunteer Wizard questionnaire at AARP.org to begin to form other ideas of what you might think about doing next. Bravo…encore!
