Following your own path to retirement
While two-thirds of older workers felt that they had enough money saved for their retirement, there are things you can do to help maximise your retirement savings.
Christine ran a successful small business with her husband of 40 years. But after he experienced some health issues, they decided to sell their business and retire to refocus and reprioritise.
Christine’s dream is to establish a new career as a self-employed counsellor and to use her experience as a small business owner to build up her network. This will allow her the flexibility of caring for her husband, spending time with her family and staying financially healthy.
Zara Michales draws her strength from the love and support of her mum and dad. As small business owners, Sandra and Peter Michales have always worked long hours. But even so, during the 33 years they’ve run their local corner store, they’ve always found the time to help their five children pursue their dreams.
Pursuing a creative dream takes time, effort – and money. Musician and writer Sam Delich says his parents’ support has always allowed him to follow his passions, but now he wants them to focus on themselves.
