Creating a Meaningful and Fulfilling Retirement with Lena Haas and Ken Dychtwald
Retirement is no longer considered an endpoint but rather a gateway to a new chapter brimming with purpose. Gone are the days when it was synonymous with endless leisure and idle relaxation. Today’s retirees and pre-retirees are embracing a paradigm shift where health, family, purpose, and finances are the cornerstones for a thriving retirement.
In this episode, Jack Sharry talks with Lena Haas, General Partner and Head of Wealth Management Advice and Solutions at Edward Jones, and Ken Dychtwald, Founder and CEO of Age Wave. Lena is passionate about helping individuals make smart financial decisions that better their lives. She aims to help millions of clients and their families understand lifelong behaviors for financial success, develop and follow a personal plan, and invest their hard-earned money for the most impact. Ken Dychtwald is a renowned psychologist, gerontologist, researcher, speaker, and best-selling author. He has received the distinguished American Society on Aging Award twice for outstanding national leadership.
Lena and Ken talk to Jack about the new research Edward Jones has released, Resilient Choices — Trade-Offs, Adjustments, and Course Corrections to Thrive in Retirement. This study examines the key findings around how Americans overwhelmingly see course corrections as essential to thriving retirement as they move from full-time work and consider what Edward Jones calls the pillars of the new retirement — health, family, purpose, and finances.
