Repurposed: The Untold Story of Retirement in America

How would you react if you discovered you could retire years earlier than you had planned?

For most of us, that sounds like a pipe dream, but author and retirement planner Ben Taatjes had a client who could make it reality. The man entered his office with a few working years ahead of him and left with a two-week notice on his lips, but retirement didn’t deliver on the promises either of them believed it would.

In Repurposed: The Untold Story of Retirement in America, Taatjes pulls back the curtain on the reality that lies just over the crest of age sixty-five. Inside, Taatjes expertly untangles the web of misinformation and unmet expectations to shed light on the path to making retirement the most fulfilling years of your life by living a life “Repurposed”.
