Becky Kueker was 69 years old when she decided to retire from a 20 year career as a partner in a successful woman owned commercial architectural firm in St. Louis. This was all part of her grand plan. It was the "Plan" she had created and was totally invested in since she was 40 years old. She was ready to close that door and walk out embracing a whole new chapter in her life. She thought she had done everything right. She and her husband had saved, invested, researched and carefully planned their retirement. She even kept a "retirement binder" for all those years with laminated financial spread sheets, great places to retire, exciting long awaited trips to take, and all the "how to self-help" retirement books she could read. What she never expected was that her plan had covered everything expect the emotional aspect of retirement. No wonder she did not want to get out of her pajamas, she literally had no idea who she was or what she wanted to do as she closed one door to open another.
