The Next Frontier


May 22, 2019

Work has shifted from being strictly a source of income to becoming a major source of personal identity, so the way we think about retirement should change, too. In this episode, author Dr. Michelle Silver joins Bill Coppel — Managing Director and Chief Client Growth Officer at First Clearing — to question common assumptions about retirement and explore the non-financial aspects of this important life transition.

Michelle earned her Ph.D. in public policy from the University of Chicago, and is a professor at the University of Toronto. Her book, Retirement and its Discontents: Why We Won’t Stop Working Even If We Can, follows doctors, CEOs, elite athletes, professors and homemakers as they transition into retirement. 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Surprising reasons why retirement can be disappointing
  • Why maintaining structure and a sense of social connectedness matters
  • How financial advisors can help clients prepare for this important life transition
