AS A RETIREMENT PROFESSION

In the next 20 years more than 76 million baby boomers will retire. 

However, 72% will want or need to continue working in some capacity during retirement.

So working during retirement is or will be the norm rather than the exception.

While many “retire” to work in minimum wage jobs such as Wal-Mart greeters, intelligent, accomplished retirees want to transition to a more meaningful role that leverages their expertise and experience and allows them to pass along what they’ve learned and build their legacy to make the world a better place.

Currently, 39% of professional coaches are 55 or older and that number is guaranteed to grow as retirees discover how easily they can become a coach and how well coaching fits into their desired retirement lifestyle.

We consider coaching to be the IDEAL retirement profession. 

Here's our Top Ten Reasons to Consider Coaching as a Retirement Profession:

1. Affordable
 training and start-up costs

2. Fast start-up-  can start getting paying clients within 3-6 months

3. Flexible lifestyle

4. Flexible schedule

5. Portable- freedom to work from anywhere 

6. Profitable- just a few clients can support your lifestyle

7. Fun- you can work because you want to, not because you have to

8. Meaningful- developmentally as we age we desire to help others, to mentor and leave a lasting legacy

9. Stimulating- learning new things and helping others keeps us sharp and energetic

10. Financial security- for most of us, retirement benefits are limited and we will probably outlive our savings

Praise for RCI from a few of our "mature" graduates:

  • After 38 years in the military I was nearing retirement with the dream of focusing entirely on relationship coaching. So I turned to RCI and completed their couples’ coach training and went through their business building programs. I must say that this is the most helpful training I have ever experienced in real-world application of skills needed to make a difference in people’s lives. Plus, RCI has helped me tremendously in the task of setting up my coaching practice to both make a living and make a difference while enjoying my “retirement career. Thank you RCI!

    — David S. Wilder, M.Div, CPC

  • After 28 years as a counselor I was ready for a change. I found RCI was blown away with the amount of training and knowledge they offer. This program is equally beneficial for seasoned professionals and those with no coaching experience. Not only do they teach you what you need to know to be a great coach, they also give you the tools you need to start and run your business. This is the best investment I have made in my professional career. I am blessed to have found them and to be a part of this organization.”
