312: Innovating Your Retirement: How to Stay Engaged in Your Second Half of Life with Chris Farrell

Retire With Purpose - The Retirement Podcast

Today, I’m speaking with Chris Farrell. Chris is a leading expert on the subject of working into the years we once called traditional retirement. In his most recent book, Purpose and a Paycheck: Finding Meaning, Money, and Happiness in the Second Half of Life, he debunks the myth that aging populations are a burden on our economy–and demonstrates how “retirees” can create, innovate, and stay engaged.  You may have encountered Chris’s work as a journalist for PBS Next Avenue and the Star Tribune, a contributor to Bloomberg Businessweek, The New York Times, Kiplinger’s, and other publications. Or perhaps as a commentator on Marketplace Morning Report, or as the host of Conversations on the Creative Economy on Minnesota Public Radio. I’m a big fan of his work and thrilled to chat with him today. In this conversation, Chris shares the story of how he went from being a merchant seaman to getting his graduate degree at the London School of Economics, why aging populations aren’t dead weight, and how retirees can discover newfound purpose–and make a difference–while contributing to the economy later in life. One more thing before we get started. We’ve got a bunch of copies of Chris’ book, Purpose and a Paycheck: Finding Meaning, Money, and Happiness in the Second Half of Life and we're going to send them out until they're all gone! Here's all you have to do... Step 1.) Subscribe to the podcast and leave an honest rating & review over on iTunes. Step 2.) Text BOOK, that’s B-O-O-K to 866-482-9559 for a link to our book request page, complete the form and we will ship you the book for free. It’s that simple! In this podcast interview, you’ll learn: What led Chris to become so interested in writing about retirement, happiness, meaning, and purpose. How an aging population and a low birth rate are fundamentally shifting our economy. Why more people in their 50s and 60s are starting businesses now than ever before–and why so many people who opt for traditional retirement “unretire” within just a few years. How retirees can pass on knowledge to younger generations and leave behind a personal and professional legacy. The importance of budgeting for health care coverage for retirees looking to bridge the gap when retiring before age 60.
