We always talk about the money side of financial and retirement planning. But what about the mental aspect of that big life change? Today we’ll break down an article written by a Licensed Professional Counselor (Kate Schroeder) for Psychology Today, titled The Psychological Investment In Retirement.
Listen to learn about the frequently overlooked struggle that comes with retirement. We will cover how you can prepare yourself for retirement with a purpose and what you can do to make the transition from your career into retirement a little easier.
