AARP knows that no one has everything figured out, and that is totally okay. Even if you know what you want to pursue, it can be difficult to figure out how to actually follow through. That’s why we’re introducing Life Reimagined Checkups, FREE two-hour sessions where we provide valuable tools to help you start the next chapter of your life. We give you access to insightful books, online activities and programs, lectures, and workshops that will help you gain the confidence and direction you need to move forward.
One of AARP New Jersey’s newest volunteers, Jacqueline Robinson worked in the Pharmaceutical industry for the majority of her career. When she was downsized after working at her last company for 27 years, Jackie decided to step out on a limb – she opted to take the retirement package offered to her and start JRR Consulting, Inc., and the division “Retire and Reinvent” ( www.retireandreinvent.com). Because Jackie is passionate about helping people become the person they were meant to be, she became a Certified Seminar Leader. “I developed ‘Passion & Purpose: A Guide to Rewriting Life After Retirement,” said Jackie. “The goal of the seminar is to help professional Baby Boomer women define their passions and use them as a guide to their purpose.”
Are you ready for your next chapter? Whether you are diving right into to life's changes, or just putting your toes in the water, Life Reimagined offers tools, experts, activities and support to help you determine what really matters.
