Retirement planning experience
John E. Nelson is a nationally known writer and speaker on life stage planning, focusing on how people plan for better prosperity, health and happiness. He the author of “What Color Is Your Parachute – for Retirement” with Richard Bolles.
Retirement planning thought leadership and expertise
John started his career as a technical retirement plan consultant, when he realized that the technicalities of retirement planning did not always translate well to personal life planning. He embarked on earning at PhD at the University of Wisconsin where he was able to study with visionaries including Martin Seligman, University of Pennsylvania, and David Cooperrider, Case Western Reserve, to look at retirement in a different way.
John took all he was learning and developed the “Well-Being Model” as a practical and concrete model for helping future retirees allocate assets in their portfolios along with making life decisions such as where to live and how to find the ideal career. As John says, “I’ve been working to figure out a better way for us to plan the second half of life. Not just our careers and finances, but our lives.”
While the Well Being Model is based in theory, many organizations were able to immediately see the practical applications. It was adopted by the U.S. government as the underlying structure for an employee education program for all federal agencies. The Model also has been used by AARP and Fortune “100 Best Companies to Work For” employers and others to help structure their employee education programs.
