Create YOUR Encore Life

What is an Encore Life?


Greater longevity has created a new stage:  Encore Life. It usually begins in the 50's and lasts into the start of old age.  Gone is the "one size fits all" notion of retirement.  An Encore Life is filled with choice.

It is a time to cash in on:

Greater creative expression.

Moving from success to significance.

A fresh sense of purpose and fulfillment.

Lynette Reiling will partner with you to prepare for the journey, navigate the transition and create an Encore Life that fits you like a glove.

Changing the Narrative of Aging


 The story we tell ourselves about our lives is the story we will live.  What narrative of aging will you choose:  the old narrative of  successful aging as damage control, subtraction and  decline


 An Encore narrative of aging:  second growth, experimentation, reinvention, fulfillment.  

Through personal experience and professional training Lynette is equipped and ready to support you in authoring  a vibrant, vital life story that will take you well into the second half of life.

Create a New Sense of Purpose


 Career usually provides a sense of meaning/purpose in life's first half.  What happens when that goes away?   Encore Life provides the opportunity to broaden the definition of work, shaping it to suit your life and promotes a whole person approach to work and life... greater balance. 

Feel excited about starting each day!

Lynette has aided many clients in answering three important questions with regards to creating a "new" life/work:  Who am I?  Where am I going? How will I get there?

Testimonials: What clients are saying


 I had already done similar exercises with other career transition professionals.  It was Lynette’s unique ability to demonstrate her sincere belief in me that allowed to open “my closet door”.  Because of her coaching, I had the most rewarding year of my career.

-David W.

I was very worried about how retirement would look, but no longer have that fear.  I found meaning and purpose to replace the feeling of identity gained from work.  Thank you Lynette for providing the opportunity to look at myself in a non-threatening way.

-Marty F.


We loved the retirement program! It has given us the chance to discuss and learn new things about each other. With five years until retirement completing this  program has helped us plan without pressure and stress. With "Mapping My Retirement" we were able to create a big picture with greater clarity, stay focused and motivated.  It is helping us to move forward into retirement with great confidence.

I was working in the garden three weeks after retiring from a thirty year career.  Fear hit.  I don't want to waste away!  Lynette helped me ease the fear; define who I am and what I would like to do.  I am on the right track with the confidence to move forward. I knew I was going to be just fine!  Thank you Lynette.
