The goal of Marc Freedman is to create a language, mindset, and cultural infrastructure around a new stage of life—the Encore Career. It's that period after your main income-producing career ends but before complete retirement begins. We all know it's there, but aren't quite sure what to call it. Until now.
There are four major work+life fit transitions that spark a fundamental rethinking of the way work fits into the rest of life: parenthood, illness, elder care, and retirement. Historically, our response to each of these reset points has been very black and white: I either work full-time, as I am now, or I don't work at all.
