Aging with Freedom Starts Here

Welcome! Thanks so much for dropping in and getting started on Aging with Freedom! We want you to find what you’re looking for and we want to learn from you. Third Act (formerly known as retirement) success is a team effort.

How Aging With Freedom can help you

Aging with Freedom advocates for Baby Boomers to age well and live a great retirement filled with purpose and passion.

We started out thinking it was about where to live. What we discovered is that successful aging requires so much more. Where you live matters, but how you live matters more. We summarize our lessons under the three big ideas of our motto:

  • High Wealth – We want the freedom to make choices that organizing our finances empowers. It’s not just about a number. Money is necessary but not sufficient. But money does matter.
  • High Health – Money just doesn’t matter that much without health to enjoy it. Fortunately, health is not all luck. That freedom to choose influences our health outcomes. Changing nutrition and exercise today on the verge of retirement or in retirement can still make a huge difference. But it’s hard to do alone.
  • High Purpose – You’ve got to live for something, or you’ll fall for anything. (Apologies to Aaron Tippin.) Wealth and Health merely give us the freedom to make a difference in the world. And it turns out that helps us live longer, healthier, and especially happier lives. Self-focus, loneliness, and isolation are all enemies in our Third Act.

We’re looking for best practices. We share our experience and research. Both good and bad. And we want you to share your examples and questions. We’re out to have fun getting it right.
