Retire Young and Become a Mermaid


“Retirement is essentially living off your investments. I knew very early on in my career that the office lifestyle wasn’t for me. I looked around and realized I was expected to be in my 60s still in the office waiting for my retirement plan to kick in. I was good at marketing and business plans, so I thought, why not create a strategic life plan?”

“I’m now interested in life coaching and helping others reduce stress and create “marketing plans” for their life,” Rogerson said. “I always check in and modify my life strategy as my priorities change. I actually carry a lot of notebooks around with me all the time doing this. I’m interested now in sharing these tools and consulting clients on life design.”

Once upon a time, I put on a business suit each day and waltzed into the office with stilettos. It took about 10 years before I progressed to work fully remotely in my pajamas or bikini each day. Now, I'm fully retired from corporate life. I've spent a lot of time enjoying this freedom, but now I've organized my Life Design tools to share with you. 

What is your dream? Everyone has a different ideal life. Mine was to stop working and travel, but yours may be quite different. Whatever your dream, my tools can help you get there. Check out the Life Design section of the site to learn more.
