Reboot Partners, LLC offers personal, professional, and corporate consulting and coaching on retirement and sabbaticals.

Reboot Partners provides the vision, motivation, business case, community, and leadership to both individuals looking to “reboot their lives,” and organizations working to become more innovative and resilient by managing their workforce planning strategies – which will include retirement planning for their Baby Boomer population and sabbatical programs to engage and retain valued employees.

Behind the Revolutionary Retirement and Reboot Your Life™ concepts and work are four highly successful executives, each having the courage and foresight throughout their lives to take time off to renew. Through extensive research, including interviews with hundreds of individuals who are retired, soon to retire, or have taken sabbaticals and many organizations that offer sabbatical programs, they are the foremost authorities on the benefits, challenges, and rewards of sabbaticals for both individuals and corporations. Their comprehensive retirement programs are cutting edge in the industry.

Reboot Partners, LLC – Baby Boomers Cathy Allen, Nancy Bearg, Rita Foley, and Jaye Smith – having collectively taken 12 sabbaticals and have reinvented themselves in retirement, are committed to sharing with a wide and diverse audience what they know: That by taking time out to reboot personally and professionally, you too can design and live the better, richer, fuller next chapter you’ve been seeking.

Individually, Reboot Partners have been featured in print, on radio and TV. Appearances include CNN News, ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s Dateline, PBS’s Nightly News Business, and New York’s WPIX. They also serve on several non-profit and national boards.

Allen, Bearg, Foley, and Smith are the authors of four books: The Retirement Boom: An All Inclusive Guide to Money, Life and Health in Your Next Chapter (Oct. 2015), Revolutionary Retirement: What’s Next for You? (2014), A Journal for Inspiration: Reboot Your Life (2013), and Reboot Your Life: Energize Your Career and Life by Taking a Break (2011).
