Giving wings to your life dreams…

Retirement can be very scary if you are not prepared! The retirement journey is a rollercoaster ride of emotions filled with high hopes and many fears. You must be emotionally and mentally prepared to embark on this adventure. Without a lifestyle retirement plan, though, your life can feel random and unfulfilling. You want a life that’s chosen and intentionally planned, reflecting your core values, a 3rd Act you consciously create from your meaning and purpose at this stage of life. Make your life soar!

Wondering how we will help? We have a variety of options for you to select from, including individual coaching sessions, workbooks, and free resources. Step into this new stage of life with an experienced companion. Patricia is the seasoned, retirement life coach with the knowledge to help you create a unique retirement plan of your own.

I felt like a lot of pressure was taken off…

What am I gonna do when I retire? What is my day-to-day life gonna be like?… The tools I picked up in The 3rd Act really shifted how I was going to do that. I felt much more relaxed.

It was an extraordinary experience…

Really opened me up to new possibilities, helped me start visioning where I might go next, and dreaming really big.

There was a healing that occurred…

I got to this place of feeling centered in my own heart…and at peace, then I could move forward in…a much more authentic way.

Do you feel…

Stuck in a routine that no longer serves you?

Pressure to "use your time wisely"?

Adrift or directionless?

Finding the Key

Imagine buying your dream car, but the controls are totally foreign to you. It seems impossible to drive, and your old sedan is still around, so the dream car sits in your garage unused and wasted.

For many people, this is retirement.

You’ve worked hard to get to where you’re at, but leaving behind safety nets and entering an unknown future can leave you feeling anxious, empty and totally overwhelmed.

Pattern and complacency can be comforting, so you bumble your way through and accept a lackluster life.

But what if there was a guidebook? A straightforward way to find the keys, crank the ignition and take a joy ride every day?

Paving Your Way

Your next phase of life will be successful when you plan for it to be that way.

Retirement coaching provides opportunity for self exploration and reflection, and it gives you permission to make the choices that best serve you and your dream life.

Ditch the compromises that dictated your decisions when you were younger and align yourself with enjoyment and purpose that honors your top priorities.

Discover new talents and opportunities.

Take action on unfulfilled dreams.

Feel in control of your destiny.

Am I Ready for the 3rd Act?

Do you daydream about retirement and what it will be like for you? Or do your friends and family keep asking when you’re going to slow down and start enjoying life?

The retirement we’re often programmed to accept seems to signal old age, sacrificing what we’ve worked hard to build, and a pacing that doesn’t seem to fit who you truly are.

Take this free quiz from The 3rd Act to determine where you are on your journey to retirement and what you can do to build a life that’s big and full of possibility.
