I love seeing menterning in action and well done to my husband Gys for sharing his wisdom and skill to nurture and mentor a younger person. You are not just creating new jobs, but paving the way for a brighter future for another family!

I have seen the positive results of partnering with the younger generation in many of our clients, especially when their new ventures require unfamiliar skills. Retired people have so much wisdom to share, and mutually beneficial partnerships with the younger generation create wonderful opportunities for growth and reward.

I would advise Gys to remember to have fun! Take a step back to appreciate the impact and value that you are creating. While it’s important to build your legacy, it’s equally important to find joy along the way – and I will be right by your side in all your adventures!

From a financial point of view, embarking on a business venture in your 60s could be the best thing you ever do for yourself. It allows you to earn an income without tapping into your retirement savings, and this strategy lets your investments grow for many years to come.
