A Second Act

Through our youth, most of us were busy either attending college, working or doing both at the same time and thinking about how we wanted a fulfilling life and make piles of money in the process.

Or “not”, maybe you “partied” your way through this period of time.

Then you married, had a family, a mortgage and all the obligations that came with those choices.   Regrets?   Maybe, maybe not.

Once in a while you managed to afford a vacation but the dreams that you may have had when you were young, probably fell away and now are seen as unattainable.   Buried under the responsibilities of marriage, parenthood and the plethora that comes with it, you gave up on the interests you may have been passionate about.

But sometimes in those quiet vulnerable moments, they return.

Years pass quickly and you have no sooner begun your career and profession, when you find yourself on the verge of retirement and without the career you had for years that was your guiding purpose, you find yourself adrift.

Your identity you cultivated over the years, vanished and now you are unsure what the last part of life will be like because it feels empty; there is no purpose…..

And there is the distinct possibility that you won’t have enough funds to retire and will be forced to continue to work well past your retirement years, because you are burdened with a mortgage.

However, you could use the funds from a reverse loan to get out from underneath it and possibly have additional funds in a Line-of-credit and not have any mortgage payments ever, again.

And having this money available to use for any purpose, could open up possibilities to move yourself forward, towards whatever it is you are passionate about and reignite those dreams from long ago.   And begin a very rewarding and satisfying second chapter in your life as a retiree.

And possibly fulfill that dream that you had so many years ago?

Why not?
