Successful Book-Signings across the country!

Reboot Partners have been traveling all over the country to share their new book Revolutionary Retirement: What’s Next for YOU? with readers everywhere. 

Co-author Catherine Allen spoke to Merrill Lynch’s Women’s Exchange Private Wealth Management customers in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on October 24th as part of a half day program on reinventing your life. The program drew from both the Reboot Your Life and Revolutionary Retirement books.

Back here in New York, co-authors Rita Foley and Jaye Smith presented the book and its research as part of a special seminar at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York entitled Revolutionary Retirement: How to start thinking about retirement when you are in your 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.  They spoke to a intergenerational crowd about how to plan their own exciting version of retirement or next-chapter planning, no matter their age!

The co-authors are planning many more speaking events and book-signings across the country.  Check out our Events Page to find one near you!

Cape Cod Reboot Your Life Retreat 2014 – “What’s Next?”

“As an entrepreneur and founder, the Reboot Retreat was invaluable for giving perspective on what is probably the most important and hardest stage of starting a company: when and how to step back and get out of the way so that it can continue to grow.”

“You were disruptors in healthy ways.”

“I got freedom, wisdom and friends from this retreat.”

“More than I ever anticipated, the three of you provided such a superior level of professionalism, safety and comfort. I will be forever grateful.”

Wow, what a great group of attendees for the October retreat held at Cathy Allen’s house in Cape Cod!  The diversity in backgrounds and ages made it such a rich experience for us all.  The Skills Assessment Exercise went way over time because the advice from the participants to each other was so amazing and insightful.  We just sat back and watched!  Well, we did do a little more than that, but it was so fulfilling to see people bond and support each other is such a spectacular way.  They have organized a reunion for themselves to reconnect next year to stomp grapes and drink wine at one of the attendee’s family vineyard in Willamette Valley, Oregon!

The theme was consistent in answering the question, “what’s next?”…whether it was getting back into the corporate world, taking a long needed sabbatical, reinventing oneself from a medical career, getting onto corporate boards, or deciding now was the time to leave a position.

We dined on the seafood from the region, took walks on the beach to vision the next step, explored the shopping in Chatham, and laughed at the differences in generational approaches to communications and vocabulary.  Who knew that “to goose someone” is to motivate them to take action in their lives?

Cape weather was beautiful two of the days, then rain for another, but we didn’t mind. The setting, the company, the food, the thoughtfulness and generosity of those attending, kept us all warm.

Revolutionary Retirement High Res Book CoverWe were also able to integrate many of the new exercises and concepts from our new book, Revolutionary Retirement: What’s Next for YOU? into the Retreat.  The book just came out this week and is available on www.amazon.com.  It will soon be available in bookstores and other outlets. We already have gotten some interesting, and good, reviews from readers.  We are planning book parties in several cities this fall and a media push in the next two weeks.  Go to our Events Page to find out how to join us and for information on our 2015 Retreats and Reunions.

Next up: Our New York City Reboot Retreat in February and a Retreat Reunion in DC in the spring!

Reboot Partners featured on Fast Company

3036292-poster-1280-sabbatical-planningFastCompanyReboot Partner Cathy Allen was featured in an illuminating article by Gwen Moran on FastCompany.com – How Taking a Sabbatical Isn’t as Impossible as it Sounds.  

 

Cathy highlights what we find in some of our research about the ways in which sabbaticals benefit both companies and employees:

“Intel tells us that one of the best benefits to them is not only do their employees remain loyal and come back refreshed and renewed, but it helps employees have a broader-based skill set, because while an employee is gone the others in the department have to cover for that employee. It helps them to learn more about different functions and actually it helps develop skills.”
