Second-Act Careers free pdf A career guide that rethinks the golden years, this handbook offers 50 income models for creating flexible, fulfilling, and profitable work during the encore stage of one's career. RETHINK YOUR RETIREMENT For many people, retirement is no longer a trifecta of golf, grandkids, and gardening-- it's an opportunity for new pursuits that involve both earning income and exploring personal passions. If you're planning for retirement or already at "retirement age" but want to continue working--whether to supplement your income or to stay mentally and physically active--veteran career coach Nancy Collamer shows how to identify your favorite interests and expertise and repackage them into more than fifty ways to earn income. These second acts range from the traditional (part-time employment, consulting) to newer Internet-based options (teaching online, writing a blog). With a prescriptive approach to securing second-act careers that are flexible, fulfilling, and fun, this book offers a wide variety of income-generating examples as well as exercises to clarify your lifestyle goals and help you plan for your next move. "Second-Act Careers" shows how to create a profitable and meaningful semi-retirement on your own terms and in your own way.
