With the financial services industry and human resource departments embracing the need to plan for the personal and psychological side of life after work, having the most effective tools, resources, training and communication is more essential than ever. The harsh reality is, many firms and organizations say that their clients or employees are more than just a dollar sign or financial figure, but frankly they can’t prove it. Their website only highlights their expertise with financial products and services, or they only provide access to 401k tools and support. They miss the mark by saying one thing but doing another.

As a five-time best-selling author and nationally syndicated columnist, Robert Laura has found that retirement is among the most fascinating, yet least understood, phases of life. As a result, he has developed a powerful message to tackle the mental, social, physical, spiritual, and financial aspects of retirement.

His innovative approach helps people critically question what they have been told about retirement, get off auto-pilot, and disrupt old and outdated thoughts patterns about life after work.
