Home - Retirement Dream Maker


Discover a brand new approach to prepare for a retirement that is financially secure and emotionally fulfilling.



Retirement is Not an Event. It’s a
Personal Revolution.

It’s time to reshape the way we think about retirement. For far too long, preparing for retirement has traditionally been about saving up for that “indulgent” dream lifestyle – golf games, fine wine and dine, grandkids’ birthday parties, travelling and so on. While all this sounds fabulous and are great goals to have, it also comes with a dark side. That dark side of traditional retirement, few dare to speak of, is the “crash after the honeymoon”. What happens when the “sugar rush” of buying the dream car wears off? What happens when you start to wonder if there’s more to retirement than the short-term thrill of the next golf game, fancy dinner, or vacation? How do you fill up this new void that comes after losing your career identity?

How do you find true purpose and long-term fulfillment in your retirement? ‘Retirement Dreammaker’ answers these questions with its brand new way of planning for retirement. With this book, you’ll no longer see retirement as an event marking the end of your career and contribution. Instead, you’ll open a brighter path for yourself by recognizing this new phase of life as the opportunity to pursue your passions — by your rules. With ‘Retirement Dreammaker’, you’ll have both the permission and practical path to transform retirement into an evolution of the new you.


Why this Revolution in retirement is critical for Humanity

A common frustration by retirees who formerly found purpose in their work is “I used to be someone important”. It is unsurprising then to find that anxiety and depression is common amongst retirees who now struggle to find meaning in their new life of leisure. Here are some shocking facts revealed by leading research:

  • Retirement increases your risk of clinical depression by 40% (Source: Institute of Economic Affairs May 2013)
  • Retirement raises your chances of being diagnosed with a physical condition by 60% (Source: Institute of Economic Affairs May 2013)
  • Divorce rates have doubled since 1990 for couples over 50 after suffering from what’s known as the “Retired Husband Syndrome” (Source: Bowling Green State University study)
  • Numerous studies suggest retirement can be a trigger to increased consumption of alcohol and drug abuse. The common reasons stated for turning to alcohol in retirement are: to cheer myself up, combat loneliness, relieve tension and counter boredom (Source: Next Avenue, 2017)
  • New retirees can be more vulnerable to suicide. One Canadian study revealed increase in the number of suicides by newly retired pensioners in Quebec (Source: PubMed, ‘Suicide at the Age of Retirement’, 1992 May;88(5):39-41)

This is a retirement CRISIS and it needs to change. That’s why a retirement revolution which helps you prepare for retirement both financially and emotionally is critical for ourselves, our families, our society, and for humanity at large.
