Pick a Card Any Card


Finances alone do not automatically make a good retirement. Of course, your financial picture is important, but what you really want is a healthy, happy, vibrant and meaningful lifestyle.

The key to a vibrant and enriching retirement is how well you plan for it. You owe it to yourself to gather as much information as possible, so you can chart your retirement course with confidence–now, when you’re zero to 10 years way from your first retirement, not when you’re 10 years into it.

Retirement coaching can help you gain the knowledge needed to reach your personal retirement goals. Hallimah Bellows provides the most comprehensive pre-retirement planning tool available and backs it up with a powerful coaching program so that you can consider all the fantastic retirement options open to you–and then make the best retirement decisions possible.

Retirement is the beginning of a very new life. You’ll find yourself starting over again, making new friends, engaging in new activities, perhaps finding a new source of income and, most important, finding new purpose.  These are huge, important changes.  You’ll be faced with a lot of choices.  This is the time when you need the help of a professional coach who can focus entirely on you!.

Halimah Bellows, MA, MS, CRC, CCC, CPC is an experienced retirement coach who knows how to assist you in achieving your retirement goals. She will help you find the right path for you to the retirement that is right for you. Together you will:
