Short term in the long run

In your second phase of life, you can still make long-term plans, see a bigger picture. It takes something a little more today. We’re living in complicated times. The impacts of the pandemic,economies and markets doing strange things and topsy turvy geopolitics. We’re living longer and we don’t want to retire because we still want to be an active part of our communities. We’re still, as we move into our 50’s, 60’s, even 80’s, able to think in the long-term.

Don’t retire. Change the world.

As Dale and Linda Bolton discovered, helping the poor of Africa is more rewarding than retirement. MOST of us dream about the slow-paced life that retirement brings, but will we be happy once we get there? Studies show that most Boomer retirees aren’t, and Dale Bolton certainly wasn’t. So instead of taking a break after 35 years of working, Dale and his wife took on a seemingly impossible challenge—to support at least 10,000 homeless AIDs orphans in Africa. As Dale began to ease into retirement, his wife Linda showed no signs of slowing down. Impressed by how a natural supplement—magnesium citrate—transformed her own health, Linda couldn’t wait to spread the word and she soon became the sole Canadian distributor of Natural Calm’s magnesium citrate. However, the true transformation in their lives took place after they visited Malawi. Dale and Linda have always helped others by donating both their time and
