In the News: Get a Grip on Your Schedule

July 27, 2012

I was just finishing up some last bits of one of the chapters in my book-in-progress (due out in early 2013) on how to tame overwhelm (too busy) angst and I got a call that was very timely.

“Eileen, do you have any tips for advisors on how to get in better control of their days…time…schedule?”. The reporter, Fiona Colle, was writing a tip piece for her Friday column called Practice Management.

Well – do I ever! Actually I’ve got loads of tips. But the editor told me her article would be brief so only room for a few. So here’s a taste of a few ideas to get a grip on a busy schedule. The ideas are seemingly so basic yet so critical and hopefully good reminders of how to bring more order to a really busy day (are there any other kinds of days?!). Although written for advisors, the ideas are relevant to anyone with too much to do and not enough time!

Retiring Retirement….

November 23, 2011

Retiring Retirement…I like the sound of that phrase. It’s the title of an article in which I was recently interviewed for in Investment Executive. It’s very aligned with the name and philosophy of my blog: UNretiredLife (my other blog that is).  Well, as many of you may know – retiring the old notion of retirement is a topic I’ve addressed for quite some time. This year, there’s been a huge ramp up of this story as boomers have turned 65. Media, banks and many other players in the financial services industry have hop on to this new narrative of what ‘retirement’ is going to mean to boomers. A paradigm shift to say the least!

In the News! In the past couple weeks, I’ve been quoted quite extensively in various articles about boomers’ work and life in the so-called retirement years. See links below.

And, btw, if you feel you are years away from retirement and don’t need to think about this – well, think again. Planning for life (and possibly work/career) in the next stage of life takes time. I know. I started in my ’40’s — and as many of you know, I have been developing an extensive second career that could serve me well into my so-called retirement years (Big Cheese Coaching)  — and have been doing so alongside my other career in communications.  Takes work. Planning. Thinking. And more.

Anyways, don’t take it just from me – hear what others have to say:

Retirement Can Get Old Very Fast – if you don’t do the ‘life planning’ part of it (National Post, November 5, 2011)
