Meet Retirement Coach Joe Grant

Joe GrantHello, I am Joe Grant, a Certified Retirement Coach, who provides positive, helpful, and effective guidance with both male and female individuals who are stressed by the transition commonly called “retirement”.  (THIS IS NON - FINANCIAL COACHING). I do not sell products.

I am trained to do this both by experience (the best teacher), and the latest modern transition methods that “stick” with you for permanent and positive change. To change is one thing - follow-through is quite another if one is to find permanent relevance and satisfaction. And, hopefully, joy as well.

In my own family, this transition has been both rocky and smooth, so I came to see what made the difference, what to do and what not, and the sequence of change, which is perhaps the most important part of making it work well. Outside my family, I work confidentially with corporate executives and their managers, but also with small business owners, a very special breed. Some have had remarkable success, some average, but all found their path improved. All had great inner strengths, and we bring those out in everyone we coach.

My clients are confidential, which is why you see no testimonials here. If needed I can provide some enthusiastic followers whom you may interview. They send me very often to others who could benefit. You will have your own secure private client log, should you choose to be coached.
