"I found the program exhilarating. I wish I had learned of this process earlier, as I should have been preparing for my future instead of grinding in the present."
"I was not looking forward to retirement because I was very committed to my career and didn’t have a clear picture of how I would spend my time. I loved golf but knew I needed more.
I found The Future of You workshop exhilarating. I wish I had learned of this process and concept earlier in life. I should have been thinking about my future instead of grinding in the present. Today my life is a mosaic of different activities, and my connection to my career is in the rearview mirror. I loved every minute of that, but I am loving this chapter equally as much."

"I now have a clear picture of what I want to pursue and a tentative timeframe. I also scheduled a meeting with an advisor to map out my expected retirement income."
"Prior to The Future of You, folks would ask me, "When are you going to retire" and I would say, "I have no idea." Since participating in the workshop, I have a much clearer picture of what activities I want to pursue and a tentative timeframe. I also scheduled a meeting with an advisor to map out my expected retirement income.
Throughout the six weeks, I was all in and looked forward to each session. I was impressed with the readings/videos, took the assignments seriously, and enjoyed hearing from my colleagues. The leaders were organized, concise, and empathetic."

"I now have a sense of renewed purpose and passion for this next phase/chapter."
"The concept of retirement felt like it was so "far into the future" for me that I didn't feel like I could connect to it. It also felt like "life ended" in a way.
The workshop made me feel like I had a whole other life ahead of me to look forward to and that everything I did up to this point would support that journey.
The program gave me practical steps to take and a road map. Most importantly, it gave me a sense of renewed purpose and passion.
Everyone should take the time to reach out for support from experts from time to time - and The Future of You program should be at the top of the list!!!"

"The program helped me be aware of the process of change and to recognize how to direct my energy to new opportunities."
"The Future of You program was very impactful at a time when I was experiencing a huge transition from a successful career to retirement. The background reading, tools, and, especially, group dialog enabled me to feel more confident about the future and set me on a path to build a new portfolio of engagement that is fulfilling. The course helped me be aware of the process of change and to recognize how to direct my energy to new opportunities. I highly recommend The Future of You to anyone undergoing a transition or seeking to make a change."

"The idea of little experiments resonated with me because I can get started exploring areas of interest before I retire."
"I had thought about retirement, but it was not something I felt was very close on the horizon. For me, I had a lot of ideas about what I could do for recreation.
The program helped me pick out a few important ideas and then think about the first few steps I could take. The idea of little experiments resonated with me, so I don't need a full plan but can get started before retirement, exploring some areas of interest to me."
