Retirement is bliss for some people. It’s a common notion that retirement equates to chill days by the beach, traveling in a camper van and visiting interesting places, or just having fun every day with family and friends. But for some people, rewiring is better. It’s a change of mindset that results in new adventures and eliminates the boredom of being retired. Doreen Cumberford, a coach, writer, and speaker can attest to the thrill of being in the state of rewirement.
In this episode of The New Nomad, Doreen joins our hosts, Andrew Jernigan and Allen Koski in an adventure-filled conversation about the perks of rewiring vs retiring. They talked about how ex-pats affect culture and how they can help other people wherever they go (while earning some extra bucks too). Why retire when you’re not tired? When you’re used to being on adventures, there’s no retiring from it. You just simply go to the next adventure where your feet or your budget will take you. So tune in to this week’s conversation and I’m sure that the concept of rewiring would entice you.
