Our Big News: Revolutionary Retirement will be republished by a major publisher!

The Reboot Partners are getting a new look! Our Revolutionary Retirement book has been sold to Career Press, which will republish it in October 2015 with a new title and new cover. The new book will be packed with the content, expertise, and practical good sense of Revolutionary Retirement, which is now off the market as we await the new book.

Our other books – Reboot Your Life and the Journal for Inspiration – are still available online at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. And we continue our Retreats and corporate work to inspire and assist people as they plan their next life chapter. In fact, our corporate offerings have expanded, especially in programs for organizations to help employees look ahead and begin to envision and plan retirement their way.

We are grateful to all who bought Revolutionary Retirement during its time on the market. It was so exciting when it reached #1 Bestseller status on Amazon.com in two categories, and good sales have continued. We know that many people and organizations have benefited from the book. We look forward to many, many more people finding our work and their own path to the big “R” with Revolutionary Retirement or the new book.

October Newsletter – Launching Revolutionary Retirement!

 RR Book CoverWe are thrilled to announce that our new book, Revolutionary Retirement: What’s Next for YOU? is now available on Amazon.com! It will be available soon in bookstores and other outlets.

Revolutionary Retirement is a comprehensive planning book for retirement that is about lifestyle – how to live the most fulfilling life for the years ahead. It’s way more than financial. The book is a great resource for anyone retiring soon, in the next few years, or already retired. Our extensive research, hundreds of interviews, input from our workshops, and our own life experiences are the foundation for this informative book with its many facts, insights, helpful stories, exercises, and robust appendix.

Topics cover potential concerns and surprises, what you need to know, and so many ideas to explore for continuing to earn money or not. It’s about designing what YOU want. Dream a little and make it happen.

RR Authors Pic All SmilingWe’ve been told by many that Revolutionary Retirement is an easy read and an indispensable tool for Baby Boomers as they approach this next chapter. And here’s what Billy Crystal says: “For anyone thinking of retiring and changing their lives, this is the book for you.”

We are so excited to share what we know and have learned on this important topic and to welcome this book to our body of work. Our dearest hope is that it benefits many, many men and women as they transition to a new chapter of life!

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!

July Newsletter – Passionate Volunteering

We talk in our upcoming book, The Retirement Boom, about the things you might want to do in your next chapter of life that relate to your passions.  And for over 1600 volunteers who came together in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for a long weekend in July to mentor and assist 150 folk artists from over 62 countries for the International Folk Art Market, the Boomers are out in force following their passions!  Many served in the State Department or Peace Corp, while others are teachers, lawyers, executives, communications, retailing and marketing specialists, and collectors of folk art from around the world.  Many have volunteered year after year at the market.These Boomers, making up over 70 percent of the market volunteers, have a passion for giving back, and for helping the folk artists reach economic sustainability. We Reboot Partners have been active in the Mentor to Market program from its inception, this year mentoring over 60 folk artists new to the Market. In a two-day training session, we taught artists marketing, selling, display, telling their story, how to photograph their art with a smartphone, and how to cost and price their goods.

The mentors included former CEO’s, a prominent journalist, business men and women, and others from all walks of life. All were Boomers in some stage of retirement, who wanted to leverage their skills and contacts to help these folk artists. Over half the volunteers came from out of town.  The positive energy on all sides was palpable.

Go to www.folkartmarket.org to get a glimpse of what happens in two and a half days at the Market that resulted in total artist sales of over $3 million, 90% of which goes back with the artists to help in their communities.

HOW TO MATCH YOUR PASSIONS TO GIVING BACK  

  • Research events, non-profits, issues, organizations, and people that you want to be associated with…not just locally, but nationally or internationally that reflect your passions
  • Volunteer to help with a project, event, or short-term plan to test out if you like it
  • Create your own alliance, effort, or event if the passion is not being served
  • Learn from others what works and how your skills and contacts can be leveraged

Join us for one of our last two 2014 Reboot Your Life Retreats in Sag Harbor on August 15-17 or Cape Cod (Orleans) on October 10-12 to explore your passions and find ways to follow them!

June Newsletter – Small Risks

It’s finally summer!  The time of travel, expansion, growth, and experimentation.  Longer days offer more hours in the day for you…and extra time to start trying new things.

Sometimes getting out of your comfort zone can be frightening.  With that in mind, one of the most successful exercises we do at our Reboot Your Life workshops and retreats is called “Five Small Risks.”  It’s a way to challenge yourself in a non-stressful way.  Making change in your life doesn’t necessarily require a whole overhaul of your job and relationships – the beginning stirrings of change just require that you take a few manageable risks that bring in new interest and energy.  What we’ve seen is that other new ideas almost always immediately follow from these small, purposeful actions.

FIVE SMALL RISKS

  • Decide 5 New Foods You Will Try in a Restaurant or Cook at Home 
  • Go to 5 Movies You Might Never Have Considered 
  • Take 5 Different Routes to a Destination and Explore the Areas 
  • Try 5 New Forms of Exercise or Movement 
  • Plan 5 Different Exploratory Weekend Trips 
  • Call 5 New/Old Friends and Plan Something with Them 
  • Make up Your Own 5 Things….. 

Pick one category and do one of the five things each month until you have done them all.  Schedule it into your calendar.

Let us know what small risks you’re going to try this month!  You can post your ideas and plans on our Facebook or LinkedIn pages, or tweet us @RebootBreak.  We would love to track the effects of your new actions this summer – we know they will be meaningful!
