The BIG question: What is your purpose after retirement?  

Your next 20 or 30 years are FULL of untapped opportunities for you. 

But, according to research, here's what happens to MILLIONS of people just like you who have no detailed retirement transition plan or who struggle with their identity aroun retirement age: they suddenly take a long, hard look at where they are and realize they don't know what to do next.  

  • They don't want to feel bored, irrelevant, no longer needed, or simply isolated after retirement...but they often slip into feeling this way. 
  • They experience a 40% increased risk of depression. 
  • They experience a 60% increased chance of being diagnosed with a serious illness.

Our interviews with over 100 Baby Boomers revealed that all of us have a deep desire for: 

  • "A community of people who really understand me and fully support what I want to do during this phase of my life"  
  • "A clear process: a roadmap that helps me structure my life to get exactly what I want, not what anyone else THINKS I should want or should do" 
  • "Ongoing resources that give me the support and the methods to re-invent my life as I choose"  

That's why we created The Encore Program for you.

Am I a good fit for program?  

The Encore Program is for people who are considering retirement and who want the next stage of their lives to be dynamic and vibrant. It is also for those who have recently retired and are unhappy with the way their lives are playing out—who want more out of the rest of their lives. We’re looking for people who want to move to their next phase with a clear plan, identified resources and a strong community.  

How many people are included in each Encore Program cohort?  

We’ve limited our program to a maximum of 30 participants so that each participant gets the attention and support they need. Each cohort stays intact for the entire program.  

What is the purpose of coaching in the program?  

The Encore Program employs expert coaching to ensure success and sustainable change. Some of the benefits of coaching include:  

  • Creates a safe and trusting environment to take risk  
  • Adds accountability  
  • Helps move participants toward their goal achievement  
  • Provides clear and necessary feedback  
  • Assists in achieving greater self-awareness  
  • Provides a broader view and perspective  
  • Challenges limiting beliefs  
  • In addition, research shows that people who receive coaching find the return on investment is 6 times the coaching program cost. (Research by Manchester Consulting Group)  
  • When training is combined with coaching, individuals increase their productivity by 86% as compared to 22% with training alone. (Study by Personnel Management Association)  


How much time do I need to set aside for this program?  

Your investment of time will be based on your individual goals and preferences. You should plan to spend a minimum of:  

  • Coaching – approximately 2 hours per month for 12 months  
  • Individual work – approximately 2-3 hours per week  
  • Onsite sessions – 9 days  

Is there a satisfaction guarantee?  

Yes! The Encore Program offers a limited money back guarantee for everyone who completes all aspects of the program.  

How do I pay for the program? Can I pay in in installments?

Click here to schedule your free 45-minute consultation and talk with one of our founders about costs and payment options. 

Are you going to give me a heavy sales pitch on the 45-minute consultation call? 

Absolutely not. This call is the opposite of a sales pitch: it's a candid one-on-one conversation to make sure that our program is a great fit for you. Because the cohort is limited to 30 people, we want to make sure everyone who attends will benefit and see positive results.  

What if I need to cancel?  

Based on individual circumstances, you may be able to attend a future program. However, the program fee is non-refundable.  

Can my spouse or partner attend The Encore Program with me?  

Because this program is an intense individual exploration, we encourage partners to attend separately, and this is an important conversation you may wish to have with your spouse or partner. We understand that change has a significant impact on loved ones. We will include discussion and strategies for navigating relationships while moving through change. During your introductory call, we can discuss your particular situation.
