6. Reinventing Yourself in Retirement with Diane Stolz

When you retire, a lot of things in your life change, and that means you have to change, too. But instead of looking at that as a challenge or obstacle, look at it as an opportunity — you don’t have to change, you get to reinvent yourself.

Diane Stolz was a nurse for 46 years before retiring. She loved it and it served her at the time, but with all the kids out of the house and no job to go to during the day, it was time for big changes. She started writing, which eventually turned into writing a book, and now she is writing a blog to keep serving the community that connected with her writing.
