The first wave of baby boomers is reaching retirement age. Some are professionals who don't aspire to retire. For some, retiring and spending time on the golf course or with grandkids is the ultimate reward after a life of work. For others, work is the reward, and it is for those people, professionals who plan to continue working at age 60 and beyond, that Mike Willard has written The Portfolio Bubble: Surviving Professionally at 60. In The Portfolio Bubble, Willard offers practical advice for professionals who find themselves planning for the next phase of their working life. He shows how to add life experiences and professional abilities to a work portfolio that can be used to launch a new career - or to reinvigorate an existing one. The Portfolio Bubble is written for an affluent, motivated audience. It stands alone in addressing the interests of the older executive who wants to prolong his work-life and is looking for answers.
