These are Just a few of the issues vying for your attention when you think of quitting your job - for good.  

The many questions and issues can be a minefield, and may paralyze you into not retiring when you can, or being fearful about how you will handle retirement when you do. If this sounds like you, stick around, because todays guest, Pauline Field has an important and much needed message for women who are looking at their pending retirement, and for those already retired.

Pauline is a highly sought-after coach and has the gift of being able to listen to where you are,  where you hope to go, and helping you see the path to get there. Having retired 3 times - from a career in management consulting, from a job as a business manager in a medical research department, and from the nonprofit she started, she has experienced the highs and lows of the "golden years." Pauline says “Many women are just waiting to retire so they can turn off the alarm, play tennis, take care of their grandchildren, travel and relad.  What they don't realize is that it all gets old after a while and they find themselves asking, Now what? Is this it? There's a lot they can do but they haven't yet throught it through - because they didn't know they would face this problem.”
