Amazing Workshops

Retire to the Life You Design


Retire To the Life You  Design  is an experiential workshop that is all about YOU!  This is all about YOU and YOU are the expert on YOU. 

This full day workshop is facilitated by an expert who will guide you through the process designing your custom made future.  

Freddi is your guide through a personal process of self-exploration and discovery that will help you connect who you are with possibilities for your future – life planning from the inside out

The workshop is an introduction that will equip you with tools, models, information and resources to help you continue your exploration and discovery after the workshop ends.

The focus is on the future - retiring TO as opposed to retiring FROM. 

The focus is on life planning as opposed to financial planning. Money is important, but not everything.

You design – puts the control of your life in your own hands. 

Aging is inevitable, but expect to remain actively engaged with life. As you age, replace activities you can no longer do with activities in any of the Six Circles that you can do. Your expectations become your reality.
