Share Article

New home study program demonstrates how anyone, on the brink of retirement, can create a working strategy to re-fire their life.

Dr. Cynthia Barnett is a retired educator who reinvented herself after leaving The Educational System with 30 years of experience. Being a retiree herself, Barnett noticed that there were plenty of businesses that offer financial advice, but few companies seemed to offer services around keeping the retirees active and happy.    

In response, Barnett combined her work experience as a school administrator with her lifelong goal of starting a business and founded Peak Performance Solutions, a personal growth consulting company. Barnett now teaches other people how to re-fire their lives, so that they too can create the fulfilling and meaningful lives they desire. Interacting with her client-base, Barnett uses workshops, retreats, one-on-one consulting, group counseling and home study programs, such as her newly released program titled, “Re-fire Don’t Retire: 7 Secrets Of Highly Successful Retirees.”

According to the Mac Arthur Study, the average sixty-five year old American can expect to live another seventeen years. With the fact that the boomer generation is living longer, it makes sense that their generation has to be proactive in reinventing themselves to maintain the quality of life as they fulfill longer lives. Gary Small, Director of the UCLA Center on Aging, adds, “Empowering ourselves for the future requires learning new skills, as well as honing the ones we already have. It requires the reinvention of ourselves.”

“These are the best years of our lives,” proclaims Barnett. “With our careers behind us, we can focus on what matters most and it's a whole awakening of life. We're wiser, more mature, and we are living about 10 to 20 years longer. In fact, studies on successful aging have shown that genetics controls only one third of how well we age. Approximately two thirds is based on our personal lifestyle choices and therefore under our own control. This is why it is never too late or too early to make healthy lifestyle choices and to instigate changes that help achieve quality and longevity on a daily basis.”

Re-fire Don’t Retire is a multi-media program that is designed to develop the inner framework of each individual’s goals, step-by-step, in order to enhance their own lifestyle strategies. Barnett adds, “The program is designed to get people to look at the next phase of their lives to live at a higher quality of life, being happy, more productive and more fulfilled." The seven step process allows clients to shift gears by identifying their personal mission in life and to systematically formulate their own action plans for their life.

“I developed this program to serve as a roadmap that clients can use for the rest of lives, giving them the resources they need to reinvent their goals,” states Barnett. “It is just incredible to watch my clients grow, finding fulfillment in various capacities, depending on their own passions and missions in life.”
