Winding things down and enjoying retirement may be more achievable than most people think, according to Sussex entrepreneur and business author David Mellor.
The internationally renowned businessman is set to launch his latest book this month, which tackles the transition from full-time work to semi-retirement.
“Changing Tack is based on my own experiences since January 2019,” says David, who is now enjoying semi-retirement. “I really want to help people go into this transition with their eyes wide open as opposed to eyes wide shut.”
“Philosophically, having been quite selective about what work I will and will not do, I now feel that I am being paid to have fun; I would love other people to feel the same.”
The book, which is just the latest in David’s popular business advice series, covers everything from setting retirement targets to following through. It comes packed with helpful tips as well as playful illustrations, courtesy of son and professional cartoonist James, to lighten the load.
It also draws on the experiences of a diverse range of people, who have either made or are making the move from full-time employment to flexible work as they approach retirement age.
“I interviewed a lot of people who had either shifted their working pattern, were in the process of doing so, or were just starting to consider it,” David explains. “We all got things right and wrong along the way, so this book is a chance for readers to learn how to successfully navigate what is becoming an increasingly well-trodden path.”
David Mellor’s book, ‘Changing Tack: making the transition from working full-time to semi-retirement’ is published on 7 April 2020. To buy a copy, priced at £8.99, visit www.davidmellormentoring.com
