Are you prepared for retirement? Answer these simple questions to see if you’re on the right path. Australian retiree and volunteer, Stephen Petersen, talks about life after retiring from paid employment. Having lived and operated small businesses in Japan for a number of years Stephen is a supporter of why you should live in another country to see the world.
Stephen believes that those contemplating retirement should look at the transition at least six months in advance. Consider your activities going forward and reflect on what you like to do.
A successful transition after paid employment ceases can depend on connecting with your community and keeping busy. Stephen practices what he preaches through volunteering, speaking about Retirement and Everyday life in Japan, and writing technical papers to name a few of his activities.
