How to help your clients retire, outside of money, with Peter Graham

July 23, 2020


Duration: 48 min

For so many Australians, retirement is the ultimate dream. We spend years working, we put money aside into super, and do everything we can to ensure we can make it work financially. So, your client has followed your advice and is financially ready to retire. Now what?

In this episode, we speak to Peter Graham, an experienced retirement coach to talk about the realities of retirement, the danger of boredom, and how you can help your clients maximise their retirement. We discuss everything from the importance of setting goals, encouraging retirees to build and foster friendships and ensuring couples are on the same page prior to retirement. 

This episode is all about challenging the belief that once your client has retired, your work is done. Peter reiterates that retirement is a life stage that requires just as much planning and consistent goal revision as any other stage of life, and with the right tools, this is a service you can offer to your clients.
