Is it time to retire retirement?

“Tennis GOAT Serena Williams recently announced her ‘retirement’ in the pages of Vogue. Williams said she did not like the word, retirement, saying it sounded like a dated idea to her,” reports Joseph F. Coughlin.

“The financial services industry and the business of advice should take note,” he said.

“…Work, whether full-time, part-time is now a part of retirement. So is joining far younger generations in the on-demand economy. Going back to school, starting a new business, or volunteering -- and yes, maybe even pickle ball.”
