Refirement Network :: November 2016


Dear Refirement Members

The year is drawing to a close and this will be my last communication for 2016.

It has been a tough year for many both economically and politically, not just here in South Africa but all around the world. There are major shifts and changes happening that leave us questioning the world as we know it. These changes you are feeling are driven by many factors, but technology and its many applications including social media are changing the way we think, act and connect. The world of work is also changing and the security many of us experienced years ago is no longer there and we need to understand these changes.

Thank you for your support this year. There are many highlights. A new website and the launch of both the 50+ service directory and skills bank. I have coached a number of individuals, worked with new companies and clients, co-piloted the first Encore Lionesses of Africa event and made many new local and global friends in this exciting space. Enjoy your time with family and friends, rest up and actively practice love, laughter and legacy with those you meet.

Build for your own journey

I leave to visit my children and will be out of South Africa for two months. This is a real privilege but at the same time part of the design of my work and play lifestyle in this season of life. My article on longevity and the assets we need, will help you to understand the gifts you need to build for your own journey. Read more.

Building and designing your career transition

I have a new workshop on offer in late January 2017. This workshop is aimed at a wide audience and designed to help you create and build your next season from a work perspective. We all need to work longer and many are struggling to find employment. The challenge is in the way we are approaching this challenge and the workshop will help you to take the blinkers off and look through a new lens. Read more.

Skype Coaching

There is also an online solution for this same process where you can work with me via Skype. This process is available and can be started at any time. I will be doing Skype coaching while I travel so give yourself a gift this Christmas or bless someone with this amazing gift. Read more.

Live, Work, Play By Mike Gray

Holidays in the Southern Hemisphere are about sun, sand and family. A lucky handful of people get to include a visit to the beautiful island of Mauritius at this time of the year. Read this great account of how one South African Boomer, Mike Gray has relocated and now lives a refired life of work and play. Read More.
