Mojo Monday – Manage Your Retirement

For the next few weeks I’m devoting Monday’s to finding other blogs and website that I think can help Empty Nest Moms.

One website I found is actually from one of the fellow blogging challenge participants. I’m taking the opportunity to hopefully create for you some things that will truly help you in your Empty Nest Journey.

I want to introduce you to one of the most spunky Canadians I know. Well, actually, I guess I only personally know two Canadians. OH well, that doesn’t remove her spunk!

She speaks to her tribe from the “Reclaiming Your Retirement Dreams” angle because she thought she was all ready and settled for the Empty Nest, when she lost part of her retirement pension.

She has also been the blessed victim of the “boomerang” generation. She thought she had an empty nest, but then the chicks came back home to roost. Of course, that’s not a bad thing when they bring the grand-children in tow!

Agnes Knowles posted recently on her blog about rising to your challenges and overcoming your excuses.

I encourage you to hop over and read about “Challenge Yourself to Succeed”. Don’t forget to let her know Kim sent you!

Hugs and feathers from the nest~~()~~

A place of encouragement for moms entering the Empty Nest Zone who find they need to RePurpose and ReDesign their lives now that the kids have flown the coop. Kim can be found on Facebook at and on Google+ at +Kim.

    Thanks for the tips. Our kids are still small, but they keep on growing up! All the best.

    I have just started this week with themes for my Facebook Business Page. Maybe I should research it for my blog as well. Thank you for sharing. Anita

    Well, Kim! What an honour to be featured on your Mojo Monday. Thank you!

    So many issues seem to arise at that time of life when you think you might be relaxing, whether it is trying to remember who you are without bringing “mom” into the equation (empty nest) or realizing that the economy has short-changed your retirement funds to the point that they will not afford you the retirement you had planned for.

    But at this age, Kim, you, me, our readers, have already lived enough “life” that we really can rise to the challenge of one more reinvention of self in order to truly flourish throughout the next few decades!!

    I am excited to lead the charge for my readers, and, speaking of spunk! you have the mettle that will give confidence to your tribe that they too can be 110% themselves as “motherhood” takes on a less significant role in their day to day life!

    Keep up the good work!!

    This is very helpful but however I am not at the age of retirement, I will bookmark this and come back for it when I am older. Thanks for sharing
