SALLIE’S OPINION

Women are rebranding their retirement eras

At Ellevest, we spend a lot of time talking about retirement with women: both how they picture their retirement and what they actually do when they’re retired.

And let’s just say that retirement — those supposedly somnolent last few chapters of life, in Florida, enlivened by golf, early-bird-special dinners, and cherubic grandkids — needs a rebrand. Because the essence of retirement is moving from that to something more dynamic, more energetic. Especially for women.

From what we see, women are simply doing retirement differently.

It’s less about going hard at our careers for decades and then stopping, reminiscing, softening. It’s more … more. More work in some capacity, either part-time or consulting. More board work, more volunteering, more going back to school. More starting businesses and prioritizing passions. More travel. (Lots more travel.)

More being really intentional about how they want to spend this chapter of their lives. For women, retirement means re-evaluating and refreshing. Even recommitting.

In other words, women are retiring a passive retirement. Read why this is and what this could look like for you in my latest piece for LinkedIn.

“Being able to put away $500+ every month into a high-yield savings account! I would hear stories of people doing that, and I just NEVER had that much money left over. Thanks to a raise and no longer being married to a man who was a spender, I can finally save and invest for my future!” — Natasha, Dallas, TX
