Some people call it "retirement" but we prefer to think of it as having financial freedom. Financial freedom means that you can choose to continue to work or run your business full-time, slow down a bit and let others do the heavy lifting or sell your business (or retire from your job) and walk away altogether.
The financial aspects of this stage are critical. There are decisions to be made around when and how to claim social security, Required Minimum Distributions from retirement accounts, mitigating market downturns, Medicare, taxes and how to move from getting a paycheck to creating one. There are also emotional, social, physical and spiritual aspects of life after a full-time career.
