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.”

August Newsletter – Our New Book Coming Soon!

Preparing for retirement. How many of us have done it? A new study says that 20% of workers in the U.S. have zero savings for retirement. Another study shows only 25% are prepared financially. Many more haven’t thought about their next chapter of life or are worried about what it will mean for them. It’s not just financial.

Our new book opens up so many possibilities for Baby Boomers and even those who have already retired. You may live another third of your life! How do you want to live it? Can you envision it? This book – Revolutionary Retirement: What’s Next for YOU? – will help on the issues mentioned above and more. Issues like what will I do with my time, how can I keep working in a satisfying way, make my money last, work things out at home with my spouse or with my kids or parents living there. How can I leave a legacy, be creative, enjoy life.

It’s all there, with exercises, stories, lots of research and interviews, and a great appendix of resources. Why? To help anyone approaching “retirement” to plan and design their own vibrant next chapter of life.

Stay tuned for the launch!

Reboot Your Life on NBC News!

Reboot Partners was featured in this new article on the NBC News website about the rise of adults taking mid-life gap years, a subject we’ve been interviewed about before.

Usually seen as a tradition solely for young people before they start college, adults are wanting in on the growth and renewal that can be gained from “taking a breather from the track that they’re on.”  Of course, those in their mid-life have heavier responsibilities than young people – as always, our advice before taking time off is to start planning early and to build a network of support with family, friends, and colleagues:

“Once you’ve vetted it with the people who support your needs, planning is the No. 1 most important element of the whole process,” says Reboot Partner Jaye Smith in the article.

Read the full article here with more quotes from Jaye, and then make your own plans for a mid-life gap year at our next Reboot Your Life Retreat!
