Finding The Second Mountain

In this episode of Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast – Finding The Second Mountain – we interview John Lee Dumas the creator of the award winning Entrepreneurs On Fire (EOF) podcast. John has interviewed over 3,000 successful entrepreneurs of all ages and amassed over 100 million listens to his show so he definitely was the perfect person to talk to about entrepreneurship in later life.

Based on your experience and the entrepreneurs you have interviewed our question for you is

“Do you believe that entrepreneurship or starting a business for retirement is a viable option for generating additional retirement income?”

You can listen in to his response here

It may have been our shortest podcast interview but boy was it packed with tips

For those of you who haven’t heard the expression “The Second Mountain” its from the book of the same name by David Brooks – a redemption story where the author takes the reader on his journey up the first mountain of outward success, down to the valley of divorce and doubt, then on to a second mountaintop, one characterised by commitment and community.

For those of us now in the new season of life we call retirement this is the second mountain top time where we look for purpose and meaning in life and want to do some of those things we’ve not had the chance to do before

One of those as we discussed might just be starting a new business, becoming an entrepreneur to either support a cause or charity, give us purpose or maybe out of necessity when finding our retirement savings fall short!

Should you want to read John’s book The Common Path To Uncommon Success – A Blueprint to Financial Freedom & Fulfillment (which we highly recommend if you are taking the online business entrepreneurship route, here’s the details)

Thanks for joining us and our guest and hope you both enjoyed the chat and got some real value from it

We’re all about shortcuts and John definitely gave you some shortcuts

And before we go since we promised, here’s our “mountain” – our reason why we climbed out of the valley and up the second mountain

Until next time
