Introduction to new Retirementor, Dorian Mintzer
More familiarly known as Dori, she is co-author of the hugely popular book, The Couple’s Retirement Puzzle: Must-Have Conversations for Creating an Amazing New Life Together. This book was recently nominated in the Best Retirement Book category for the 2017 Best Senior Living Awards, and is available in the Chartered Library.
Through her book, Dori guides couples in having the courageous conversations that they need to have in anticipation of, or already in, retirement. Questions such as when and where you expect to retire, what ‘retirement’ means to you and how the money will be managed are difficult to discussion but essential to create a successful second half.
Dori understands the challenges herself. Married to David, 13 years her senior, she is a writer, coach, lecturer, and founder of two virtual communities (the Boomers and Beyond Special Interest Group and Revolutionize Your Retirement Interview with Experts Series. She is not near retirement! David, a physician, has reduced his working hours to three days a week, and is home more than ever before.
