Chris Carosa of FiduciaryNews.com quotes Pamela J. Sams, CRPC, president of Jackson Sams Financial Services, in an article about Facts and Fiction of Modern Retirement. Sams reveals that some retirees expect to work during retirement. "According to AARP, approximately 22% of retirees continue to work at least part-time in retirement," she says.
In another article written by Chris Carosa of FiduciaryNews.com, Carosa turns to Pamela J. Sams, CRPC, president of Jackson Sams Financial Services, for insight about Retirement in the 21st Century. "A lot of retirees are starting their own businesses," says Pamela J. Sams, Financial Advisor at Jackson Sams Financial Services in Herndon, Virginia. "Consulting, starting bed & breakfast establishments and turning their hobbies into a business. Others will work at places with flexible hours such as tour guides at museums, Walmart greeters, and libraries."
Sams is quoted in an article about Retirees Rejecting "Off the Shelf" Retirement and Doing Some Different Things. "Retirement is different for each individual,"? says Pamela J. Sams, Financial Advisor at Jackson Sams Financial Services in Herndon, Virginia." The "rocking chair on the porch passing the time away" is not everyone's vision of retirement. People often plan for the financials of retirement but not the lifestyle. A lot of retirees continue to work not because they need the income but because they are bored. Getting out of the house and working gives them a sense of purpose and gives them something to do."
