Retirement Postponed.com – what’s it all about?
Retirement Postponed is all about a generation of active, sociable, intelligent, creative, positive people who refuse to allow age to limit their expectations from life or that retirement should mean the end of any sort of line.
We’ve set out to become an online home for this generation.
Because it doesn’t matter what age you are, 60, 70, 80+, life can still ask tough questions.
Until now, the Internet answered by either treating you like a cash cow or a basket case and you’re none of those.
What you are doing is running your life on shifting sands, taking care of yourself and your family and attempting to plan a future while the goalposts are breakdancing on the horizon.
Oh, and at the same time trying to get out of life all those great things you promised yourself when you were 20.
Retirement Postponed is here to help you meet those challenges, remain active, stay interested, feel secure, enjoy life and most of all, keep going.
Because as we say, there’s more to life.
We are developing this site as a magazine and an information mine. Each of its four themed sections, Work, Money, Property and Life, will be packed with interest, information, updates and analyses, everything you could need as a reference and support for those issues.
In the media currently, the term ‘post truth’ is liberally used to describe the state of the world. Retiremnet Postponed is setting out to be an island away from that. It will develop fairly and transparently across every aspect. It will back up all its activities with social media feedback and dialogue on every available format, to make sure that clarity is total.
Most importantly it will be owned by and for the people it is talking to, not commerce, not corporations. Retirement Postponed has been established as a Community Interest Company (CIC), designed as a social enterprise that will use its profits and assets for the public good.
That doesn’t mean Retirement Postponed is anti-business – it will welcome advertising and commercial relationships with all manner of businesses large and small – we’ll just do it openly, so you’ll always know exactly where you stand.
You’ve arrived at the beginning.
After many months of development, writing, rewriting, designing, redesigning, and endless reviews the domain became active as a single holding page in the open at the beginning of June 2017. Between then and now we have been working on the main site offline, adding and checking content, making sure we comply with al the regulations.
Now we are slipping quietly onto the Internet, under cover of the online Christmas hullaballoo, in preparation for a launch proper at the start of 2018. It’s what they call a soft launch – about as soft as it comes.
We want to grow a fresh community right across the country and across our generation. We will grow as fast and as much as you want us to. To do that we need your support.
Get in touch, say hello, start a conversation; we need stories, posts, reviews, contacts, writers, advertisers, friends, critics, more of everything you’ll find on this site.
