Pre-Retirement Lifestyle Planning for Couples

Do you suspect that you and your partner have different view of what retirement could look like? Would you like to kick start your retirement planning in a fun one day workshop? This small group workshop involves some group work and also provides for you to capture your own personal thoughts and ideas without sharing with the other members of the group. You and your partner will each connect with your own personal vision of retirement, including where you’ll live and how you’ll spend your time. There’ll be an opportunity to share your ideas with one another over the lunch break. Lunch is not included in this workshop to allow for privacy as you share your discoveries with your partner. The early afternoon will be devoted to group brainstorming around a number of hypothetical scenarios where one partner has a very different view than the other. You’ll then take time to capture possible ways that you can accommodate your and your partner’s desires in a way that could work for both of you. You’ll leave the session with a better understanding of what retirement could look like for you as a couple and some tools to help you continue the process of clarifying your vision and refining your retirement plan. Once you’ve completed this work, you’ll be able to talk with a competent financial advisor who can help you formalize the financial component of your plan and help you determine when might be the best time for you to retire.

This day could be life-changing – don’t put off getting this clarity to some future date that may never come. Enjoy a sense of control and empowerment as you and your partner clarify your retirement plans.

Pre-registration is mandatory and spaces are limited. Please call Sue at 778-265-6880 to register. Pricing is $297 per couple and is payable in advance. All major credit cards are accepted

Make This Your Best Year Ever

2015 Your Best Year EverWant to set yourself up for an amazing year? Take a trip with me into the future and let’s look back on your achievements. Give yourself the gift of 30 minutes in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed and let’s explore what an amazing year could look like for you.

In December I invited my clients to connect with me to reflect on their achievements over the past year. We looked back and uncovered personal and professional successes both big and small and took a moment to pause and celebrate them together. In all cases my clients were surprised and delighted with their accomplishments. You can discover how to walk yourself through this process in this article on my website:  http://suemaitland.com/category/articles/. Reading that article could be the perfect prelude to our trip into the future.

Now I want to share with you the second part of our year-end coaching session. Here are the steps I invite you to follow to create your plan for this year’s achievements:

  1. Write at the top of your notepad “My Achievements This Year”.
  2. Take a couple of nice deep cleansing breaths and get present to the moment
  3. Imagine you’ve stepped through a portal and been transported into the future – it’s now December and you’ve enjoyed an amazingly successful year
  4. As you look back over the entire year ask yourself “What are all the wonderful things that I achieved last year that I may wish to celebrate?” and from the vantage point of the end of the year, write down on your notepad each thing that comes to mind. Don’t hold back – remember it’s been an amazing year.
  5. Now take another couple of deep cleansing breaths and prepare to get really present and open to celebrating your successes this year.
  6. Read out loud each of your achievements and acknowledge and honour each one of them.
  7. Notice how you are now feeling about yourself and your past year. Enjoy that feeling of satisfaction and congratulate yourself on all of your achievements.
  8. Now step back from the future and think of the top 3 actions you could take that would help make this vision a reality and write them on your notepad. Set a date for when you will start doing each of these things.
  9. Consider one key thing that might occur that could impact your ability to achieve those goals and ask yourself “How can I overcome that challenge if it occurs?” Write your answer down.
  10. Notice how you were able to come up with an answer as to how to overcome your challenge and know that you have the answers to be able to overcome any challenges if you just take time to give it your attention and are open to all the possible solutions.

Congratulations – you just set yourself up for an amazing year.

If you would like to explore working with me to help you get clarity on the key achievements you’d like to set for yourself for the coming year and invite me to support you as you build a plan to make them happen, please call or email me for a complimentary initial consultation and you could begin to…

Make the rest of your life
the BEST of your life.

What’s Important to Me NOW? Workshop

In this powerful 2 hour workshop participants will take the time to ask the question “What are the things in my life that are really important to me right now and what things do I want to give more focus to in the future?” Many of us lead very busy lives juggling personal, work and family commitments and we rarely stop to evaluate whether we’re spending our time on activities that really reflect who we are and what’s important to us as individuals. Others feel stuck in familiar patterns of behaviour that really don’t inspire or fulfill us. If you feel you may be approaching a crossroads in your life, investing a couple of hours with a life coach to help you get clear on your personal priorities can have a profound effect on the rest of your life.

Imagine knowing exactly what your priorities are and being able to evaluate each new demand for your time or attention in the light of whether this supports what’s most important to you. As you move forward after this workshop and begin to make choices aligned to what’s most important to you, you will begin to feel a powerful sense of control, satisfaction and happiness in the new life you are creating for yourself.

This foundational workshop is a great reference point to begin one-on-one coaching and also forms Part 1 of the 6 Part Retirement Reinvented Workshop Series where mid-lifers can create a vision for their ideal retirement and build a plan to achieve it.

Retirement Reinvented Part 1

This series of 6 seminars on consecutive weeks will allow you to explore new possibilities for your retirement. You’ll get clarity on what an ideal retirement or semi-retirement might look like for you and build a plan to achieve it.

Each Session builds on the previous session, so attendance in all 6 sessions is required.

We all need a plan for our retirement. If this is something that you know you need to do and yet you keep putting it off, don’t procrastinate any longer – sign up for this seminar series and make it happen.

Imagine the feeling of satisfaction you will experience, knowing that you have a personalized retirement plan developed by you to support your own specific wants and needs. Having this clarity will serve as a beacon and allow you to make life choices that support your retirement vision.

1) Clarify what’s most important to you now and in the future – you’ll do this in the “What’s Important to Me NOW?” workshop on October 25th
