How to Not Fade Away But Thrive in Retirement with Celia Dodd


In this episode of the Humans vs Retirement podcast, I get to have a great conversation with journalist and author Celia Dodd about her book "Not Fade Away: How to Thrive in Retirement". The conversation focuses on the emotional challenges of retirement and offers practical examples of real people who have gone through retirement that Celia spent time with when writing the book. Celia shares her expertise and research on the retirement, offering insight and advice for those looking to live a happy, healthy, and wealthy retirement. I encourage everyone to check out Celia’s book with a link to buy it in the show notes.
