Client Stories – Rewire My Retirement

Client Stories

“Never ever did I think this would happen to me!”

I am now enjoying more fulfilling activities than ever before. I’m learning to play the guitar, write poetry, and for the first time in years, I’m in a new romantic relationship that has more promise than any other relationship I’ve been in. These tools will help you achieve anything.

“I can see how this is going to be a huge impact on the rest of my life.
The powerful tools I learned in the program help me get through life’s challenges. You can pretty well get through everything if you use the tools. They’re now a part of my everyday life. Learn more about Steve here…

“For the first time in my life, I’m living in the present.”

Through the program, I developed positive daily habits of focusing on myself, my growth, my passions, and my core values. And now my retirement is aligned with it.

“If you look back and see all the things I’ve done, it’s really amazing.”

I was a person who would dream of all these things, but the action was keeping me from doing it. I wasn’t sure at first, but once I got into the program, I was really pleased with the whole experience. I’m more self-confident, calm, consistent, and a more positive person. I’ve even improved my relationship with my husband. I loved it.

“The system has specific concrete steps to follow that you can repeat for future goals as needed.”
I needed help defining where to go from here. I also wanted to be an example for my daughter who was having a very hard time over the loss of her brother. With these tools, I was able to reach my goal of selling my house and relocating to a new home. Learn more about Joyce here…

“Rewire My Retirement was a godsend.”

It helped me develop a different approach to how I start my day, which is now my resolution practice. It also validated the path I was on and helped me develop a more structured, organized, and effective approach to reaching my goals. Learn more about Doc here…

“Cyn is a gifted coach and an expert on everything to do with aging and retirement.”

I retired at age 71 after a busy and rewarding career as a filmmaker, professor, and author. I was casting about, feeling uncertain, and realizing that I was in unfamiliar terrain. Being retired was a new and unnerving experience.
I love her emphasis on growth, giving back, health, community, achieving goals, micro-steps, and living an engaged, active lifestyle. I highly recommend Cyn’s program to any seniors who are interested in making sure their final decades are the best years of their lives, brimming with fun, engagement, love, companionship, caring, creativity, good health, and giving.

“I now have the clarity I was lacking before on how to move forward as the best possible me that I can be.”  

It was such a pleasure working with Cyn. I was looking to make some changes in my life and Cyn came along at the right time with the right tools I needed. I learned a lot about myself through her course and have been able to accomplish things I would never had tried before. Her one-on-one coaching sessions were most helpful to me. She was always there to remind me of the progress I made, even if it was baby steps. Learn more about Mary here…

“Cyn has helped me navigate some challenges and fine-tune my mental and spiritual center.” 

I fancy myself a mentally healthy retired person with chronic illness and disabilities. Yet I know that to stay mentally healthy and live at peak physical capacity takes work – good habits aren’t easy. For that work to be worth it, I need coaching. I can’t think of everything. I’ve been delighted with Cyn’s coaching and program. Much appreciated. Learn more about Danny here…

If you think it’s too late for remarkable growth, think again…

AnnaBelle Marshall, 92

Serendipity happens when you’re honoring your authentic self and moving in your natural flow. 


I definitely think it’s serendipitous that I met AnnaBelle. 


She’s the most local person (as in, lives in an adjacent zip code) – that I didn’t know before creating Second Wind Movement – who joined my program.


And she’s 92.


(For reference, I’ve had the privilege of helping mainly people in their 60s and 70s.) 


It’s not by accident that we met. 


I met her after my program gained traction and my audience grew…


After years of working with beta students and 1-on-1 coaching clients to better understand this important audience, and what they need and want… 


Basically, I met her when it was the right time for her story to inspire more people. 


So, here goes…


What impresses me most about AnnaBelle is not the fact that she’s still comfortably driving around town. 


Nor is it her great health and solid vision.


And it’s not the fact that she’s outlived most of her friends and is pretty much the oldest person she knows. 


It’s not even her independence that most people don’t get to experience at this stage. 


What’s most impressive about AnnaBelle?


It’s simply how AnnaBelle took the ordinary and turned it extraordinary, by allowing herself to learn something new.


She allowed herself to take a chance, and believe that she could find new meaning and purpose in her life. 


She allowed herself to be creative and expressive, and to find new ways of helping people. 


She allowed herself to nurture her authentic self. 


Which, in turn, brings out the best in her. 


Age has absolutely nothing to do with this process.


I am so grateful for my “new old friend” (our nickname for each other) AnnaBelle Marshall.
