Shifting the Retirement Paradigm: Why 87 is the New 65

“The key is not to turn off the jets, but turn them down into a new orbit and equilibrium..”

Ron Suber

How much do you know about your own retirement? How much has been painstakingly planned out, even if it’s 30 years away? The unfortunate problem with the concept of retirement is that people think they know what to expect. They intent to be on a beach in their golden years, with plenty of money to live the life they’ve always wanted to. 

No one wants to find themselves unable to enjoy these years. And yet, few people plan for a future that doesn’t go exactly how they want it to. Many retirees don’t have sufficient cash reserves for a retirement that could theoretically last from age 65 to age 100…or beyond. Fewer still have a real game plan for disability, illness, or injury.

Activating Lifelong Service: The Cornerstone of Partners for Prosperity


In both my personal and professional life, I’ve committed to discovering my purpose (with the help of my sister, Tammi Brannan). Through her program, The Blueprint Process, we’ve identified who I am and what I’m about. In other words: my Purpose. 

The reason is so that my business is a reflection of my Purpose—otherwise, who am I serving? Certainly not the people I’m meant to serve: the ones who want and can benefit from my message.

In this process of discovery, we distilled my purpose down to this phrase: “activating lifelong service.”

Love Is Prosperity


“Love is a many splendored thing,” and many faces it does have.
Love is an infinite pool from which we can draw—romantic,
or brotherly, sisterly, paternal, even friendly.
There is no end to the love we express, and ways in which
we express it. Love is our legacy, to pass down
from parent to child or mentor to mentee. 
This legacy we leave is the best of us—our own infinite stores
of knowledge, of experience, of the lessons we’ve learned.

How to Succeed in Unbelievable Times… with Unbelievable Thinking

When the world feels like it’s out of our control, it’s time to look inward. In fact, our first “Principle of Prosperity” is to THINK with a prosperous mindset. (If you want to learn all 7 of our Principles of Prosperity, download our Prosperity Accelerator Pack.) Because no matter what is happening in the world at large, a change of mindset is the most powerful strategy. To THINK is about more than financial strategies (though those are important). The principle also refers to our thoughts around money, and our thoughts about the world. 

In a “post-2020” world, mindset is what propels us forward,  pulls us out of tough scenarios, and creates lasting changes for the better. As Strategic Coach so aptly describes, adversity is an opportunity to develop the “muscles” of our minds.

In other words, challenges are actually an opportunity: an opportunity to become better, more resilient human beings. Never believe that all you can do is survive. It’s time to take a more creative and, more importantly, optimistic approach to life and personal finance. Be a leader in your own life.
