Plan to Choose Joy: Three Keys to Investing Your Time from
empty nest to Retirement

Feeling lost in your empty nest? Wondering who you are if you're not defined by your job or by being a parent? Discover the step-by-step process to creating your “Plan to Choose Joy” from empty nest to retirement. Learn how to structure your time with the essential elements of a joyful life -- engaging your mind, moving your body, and nurturing your relationships. Find out how to create new relationships, stay healthy and find meaning in your next chapter.



Empty Nesters: When that last child leaves home, we often feel lost and lonely. It's common to wonder what's our role now that we're not needed every day. All that time spent sprinting to games and events is done. Your calendar - and your heart - feel so empty. You're not alone! This is your time to rediscover your joyful purpose. 

Getting Ready to Retire: Who are you outside of work? What do you love to do? How are you going to structure your time? Creating a game plan for retirement before you retire is an ideal way to make your transition into post-career life smooth and joyful. It’s also a practical way to determine how much money you’ll need. When you align your time and money with what matters most, you live with joyful purpose!

Already Retired: There’s often an initial honeymoon phase in retirement where savoring relaxing time is fulfilling enough. But later, many people wonder "is this all there is?!" Reignite your curiosity. Uncover your passions. Here's your chance to find out how to  experience more purpose and connection. And here's a happy bonus: creating a plan to live with more joy and meaning improves your health and quality of life. Let's get started!

Wealth Management Advisors

Time and money are two of the most important resources we have. Wealth management advisors help clients invest their money. I help people create a plan to invest their time from empty nest to retirement. When people define how they want to spend their time in post-career life, you can guide them to understand the money they need for their chosen life. Together, we can offer clients the peace of mind they seek in retirement.

Beth Picard, newly retired

The retirement workshop and ongoing Accountability Group are excellent. Babs is approachable, intelligent, non-judgmental, and realistically positive. She doesn’t force, rather teaches people to come to their own conclusions about what is best for them.

Misty Slopes

Linda Kelley, newly retired

Babs was goal-oriented and focused. She provided a very supportive environment - allowing everyone to feel comfortable expressing their thoughts/feelings. If one of the participants was dealing with a particularly difficult issue in their life, she made time for them to discuss it. She used a variety of techniques which were very effective - guided imagery, partnering with another person to complete a task, time alone for thinking and writing, including all participants. She also brought many of her personal experiences to the sessions

Nancy Hupp, pre-retirement

The retirement workshop helped me prioritize time to think and plan, find resources, create a community around shared concerns. This wouldn’t have been possible without Bab’s guidance. She not only guided the conversation and suggested resources, she gently pushed us to create small, attainable goals
