Face-to-face with “as long as possible”

Planning on working well into retirement?

We hear this a lot from classical pros of all kinds, including singers. The “plan” may be to work for as long as you can, but is that really a plan? The fact is, you and your current streams of income will likely stop before you drop. And you can start working toward that reality right now.

This is one of the most taboo subjects in the business, and we’re going to try to address it in small bites and big pieces here at Singerpreneur. To get us started, take a look at this fairly recent article from Lifehacker, which reminds us in pretty blunt terms that we don’t always get to choose the timing in our lives.

So, here’s your homework for this week:

  1. Give the article a thorough read-through. Don’t skim. Really think about it and give the ideas a chance to germinate.
  2. Think about your own expectations of retirement, regardless of where you are now. How do you imagine it? Does it seem very far away, are you already there? What does it look like?
  3. Pull $10 out of your wallet and put it in a jar. You’re one step closer. Now, commit to keeping it up.

We’ll be back next week with some next steps.
