The Experience Age

Balance between vocation & vacation

At Longhurst we believe that we now live in something we refer to as the Experience Age. One that isn’t dictated by your age.

So, if you’re reading this thinking ‘You know what, you’re right, I’m not ready to retire,’ then don’t despair. Longhurst is here to help.

Retirement (retreating from purposeful activities) isn’t the ideal outcome. Financial Independence – which is where paid work is optional; you work because you want to; and not because you have to; is a much more fulfilling

Therefore, two things to consider, as you think over what your Experience Age will consist of, are: (1) What do you want to do?, and (2) How are you going to fund it?

You may want to consider the following activities:

    • Continue with your current career; maybe on reduced hours
    • Time with your spouse, family, and friends
    • Time to yourself
    • Exercise
    • Hobbies
    • Travel
    • Volunteer work
    • Mentoring in your local community
    • Potentially the most important – finding another vocation

At Longhurst, we will help you to find balance between vacation with vocation.

We’ll help you find meaningful engagement in something that brings value to others, and meaning to you.

And, on occasion, we will encourage you to be selfish. Sometimes very selfish.
