Retire & Thrive


Many of us look forward to the day when we can retire with little thought as to what that actually means; often we’re too busy working to even think about it or to redefining our identity.​

People often quote a desire to travel, be ‘grey nomads’ for a while, visit children or catch up on many outstanding jobs around the home – but what then? Retiring means more than simply finishing work – it takes thought and planning to create a life that is fulfilled and where relationships thrive.​

There are three main stages of retirement and we help you to plan for your first transition – the one from work. We’ll make sure you have the skills to cope with unexpected changes, whether that’s because of interests expectations or personal circumstances. 

You’ll be able to create a lifestyle plan that enables a fulfilled life with positive mental health and relationships that thrive by using our simple six-step process, and all from the comfort of home.​

Once the short course is completed, you’ll be able to gain a sense of comfort and optimism about your retirement years. You’ll gain the knowledge to cope with changes that happen along the way and how to organise yourself to free up valuable time that you can use to follow your passions.

Things I’m sure we all want to achieve.​

Who am i now?

Who am I now?

In module 1, we spend time evaluating who you are now, your values, interests, commitments, constraints and what is important to you. You’ll receive valuable tools to assist you do this.​

What do i want?

What do I want?​

In module 2, you’ll identify what kind of retirement you want to have, be clear about when you want it by and whether you want to adopt a ‘stepped’ approach. Based on the values and interests identified in module 1, you’ll identify activities you could take up that will ensure you retain a strong sense of purpose.​

What are my options?

What are my options?​

In module 3, we’ll use the work from modules 1 & 2 to fully identify your ‘purpose’ – a critical factor influencing retirement success. We’ll share with you some of the research so you can benefit from the learning of others.​

How do i get there?

In module 4, we’ll look at how to make things happen - a crucial step in creating a plan. This module will help you identify and evaluate options, clarify who you need to speak to, establish realistic steps and embed achievable action plans.​

What else do I need?​

What else do I need?​

In module 5, as you’ve seen in the reviews, although we focus on helping you create a fulfilling retirement, we also remind you of the essentials that need to be in place. Once these are done, it frees up space to enjoy life, knowing that everything is in place.​

Creating my plan​

Creating my plan​

In the final module of the programme, you’ll pull everything together to create your plan. The template we provide for you will be a ‘forever plan’ that you can review and extend year to year and adapt to inevitable changes that come along. It’ll take care of all the necessities, freeing up your time to focus on enjoying the retirement you’ve created.​

Let’s hear from some people who’ve completed the programme:​

This program gave me an unexpected opportunity to take seriously my big decision to retire. Although I felt in control, the reality-check of actually concluding a 36-year career was unfamiliar ground with unforeseen emotional adjustments. The content of each module, presented so seamlessly, quickly drew me in and often revealed unspoken, hidden, or simply unacknowledged thoughts - all of which needed to be pondered. I encourage you to listen, reflect, contemplate, do the work and take it seriously. This hands-on series highlights Jaine’s extensive experience, practical wisdom, and genuine people skills, all professionally presented in easy to manage modules. If you are contemplating a big life change, this program is an excellent starting point to help you examine where you are now, where you want to be, and how best to achieve your future hopes and dreams".

Peta, Australia (Pre-retirement)

I’m 54 and this programme couldn’t have come at a better time as I’m starting to wonder what retirement will look like – especially having experienced severe lockdowns during 2020 and 2021. It feels like you’ve got into my head and can see everything that I’ve been thinking and worrying about recently.  It’s been so useful – thank you".  

Greg, UK (54)​

Working through this programme was so helpful. As a working couple with children and grandchildren, we don’t find much time just for us. Working through this meant we made time to sit down and discuss things that we probably should have long before now. Before we retire, we realise we need to understand where we’re on the same page and where we differ in our views – and make a plan that’s open to change. We also need to get some essentials like Wills and things sorted out – things we’ve been putting off forever. This has motivated us to get organised". 

Alex & Anna, Australia (late 50s)​

 Oh my goodness…when I finished the introduction I couldn't wait for the next! It sounds silly now but I never thought about retirement being in three parts as you’ve described it. Everything addresses things I’ve been feeling and ‘hits the spot’ perfectly. I found it informative and empowering and feel I'm now striding towards a new and invigorating chapter in my life rather than drifting from an end to my working career. I can't recommend this programme enough - I’m now excited to continue the journey…thank you!”

Meet your coach:​

I’m Jaine Edge and at 54, am approaching retirement myself. By day I’m an HR consultant and spend a lot of time coaching people at all stages of their lives and careers. For over 30 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of people approaching retirement. I’ve coached scores of individuals and couples who’ve almost all invested in financial planning and legal advice but some of whom haven’t planned for ‘life’.  ​

From working in HR for 35 years, I’ve seen first hand the risk of not planning and the amazing benefits of doing it well. If you’re still unsure if this is for you, ask yourself how much time you spent planning your last big purchase – does your retirement not deserve the same?​

​I’m confident this programme will help you achieve the retirement of your dreams.  ​

​I hope to hear from you!​

The meaning behind our logo

First of all, Dandelions stand for happiness, joy and youthful thoughts, and they are mostly attributed to positive things like good wishes, hope and prosperity.​​

Dandelions represent perseverance, endurance, resilience and determination. They are a symbol of overcoming the difficult challenges that life throws our way because they are very good at adapting to their environments, surviving anything from harsh winters, pollution, drought, being stepped on or being run over by cars. They can quickly bounce back from adversity and continue to grow. In some countries, dandelions represent courage because they grow anywhere and everywhere. ​

​Dandelion seeds are said to carry wishes for prosperity and new beginnings with them as they fly away into the sky.​ ​

We hope you agree that the dandelion is the perfect symbol for moving into retirement, as we embark on new beginnings.​ ​
