Retirement brings some of the biggest changes in our lives. Our daily structure, social circles, purpose, usefulness, income, and status all change on that last day we walk out the working life door.  How do we navigate this important transition in life?

Our retirement could also be the longest phase of our life, 30-40 years! We are retiring earlier and living longer, healthier and wealthier lives than past generations.  How will we fill our time in our third act of life?

The purpose of Next3rd is to help fellow new, or soon-to-be retirees, transition into a fulfilling and meaningful retirement, their ‘next3rd’.  To share wisdom and stories, tips, tools and ideas to help you create a retirement life that expresses your uniqueness and vitality.

I’m Kris van der Pas-Norenius, and I experienced the change of retirement after selling my successful business at 55.  I learned the hard way and then the right way. I studied and became certified with North America’s leading experts on retirement, Retirement Options, to help others transition smoothly to a satisfying and enriching next3rd!
