Make a plan, determine atimeline for retirement in the future and how far out you’d like it to be. Involveyour manager in the process, you never know what they will say!
    • # 2 - T A K E A D V A N T A G E O F F L E X A R R A N G E M E N T STaking advantage of flex arrangements is a great option. Instead of leaving completely, you could also work part-time for your currentcompany, so that you have income and the time to think about what you wantto do next. If you choose this option, set a timeframe for this transition or next phase sothat you have a tangible and specific plan.©2002-2013 HallieCrawford.com
    • # 3 - E X P L O R E Y O U R P A S S I O N STake some time to explore and tap into those passions you never had timefor. What are your passions? Make a list! Turn a passion into a full time or part time business and work withSCORE, an organization filled with ex business professionals who can helpyou with your business plan. Find a business partner who shares the same passion perhaps. Serve on a board of a non profit or for profit organization you are passionateabout.©2002-2013 HallieCrawford.com

    • # 5 - B E C O M E A C O N S U L T A N TConsider consulting as an option. Former employers will often hire peopleback as a consultant, or offer your services to a new organization. This canbe a win-win because… The company would love your expertise, but as a consultant they don’t have topay for benefits. And you can have greater flexibility. You can also work on multiple projects at once to give you variety and newchallenges, or one at a time. You have greater say in setting your schedule andwho you choose to work with.©2002-2013 HallieCrawford.com
