The Second Mountain - A Masterclass Series
Welcome to the Guns and Yoga Podcast, my name is Wendy Hummell. In today's Microcast I’m kicking off the first in a series on retirement, and even if you have a ways to go before retiring, I encourage you to listen because I think you’ll find this helpful.
The inspiration came from numerous interactions over the past year or so with those that struggle in retirement for various reasons; at first I thought it was just me, but as I started to openly discuss my own struggles I learned my friends, peers, and coaching clients had their own challenges too. This got me curious. As I read more, explored topics on life transitions, identity, finding purpose and meaning, and spoke with more retirees, I decided to share what I have learned through a series of masterclasses on the subject through the podcast that will explore the pillars of a retiree focused coaching program I’m working on. So stay tuned for live Q & A workshops with vetted participants, subject matter experts, and other retirees to dive deeper into some of these topics.
