Why Is Retirement a Terrible Idea? [Podcast S03E13]

And My Answers to 8 Other Listener Questions

Welcome to Season 3, Episode 13 of the This Is Your Life podcast. In this final episode of the season, Michele Cushatt and I discuss why retirement is a terrible idea and answer eight questions from you, the listener.

One of my favorite shows is our Q&A show. It’s a fun, off-the-cuff way to interact with the needs of my audience and share what insights I have. In this episode we talk about why I don’t believe in retirement, post-vacation email overload, the value of empathy, and more.
