This week on For Your Benefit, our host, Bob Leins welcomes Mike Townshend, transition specialist, to the studio to talk about the fuel for a happy retirement and how to live life with a PURPOSE!  "Every day, have a plan and make the decision to create value.”  Our guest will specifically explore the idea that he is championing in a chapter of his coming book:  Living Well on the Road to Retirement:  When Should I Retire?

Summer days and evenings often create the thought process that “it sure would be nice to be retired”. Certainly this can be true but what else should be considered?

How about:

  • What is the fuel?
  • What (other than not going to the office) will my daily routine/purpose be?  What is the difference between a routine and living purposefully?
  • What are some attributes to a successful retirement?
  • What are the challenges?  What are some real life examples?

For questions or comments, email us in advance at or call 202-465-3080 this coming Monday.  Program begins at 10:05 ET and questions are accepted between 10:20 AM and 10:55 AM.
