Design Your Portfolio Life

We are not only living longer and healthier lives; those of us over 50 are tackling a life stage that did not exist twenty five years ago.  A new arena that could last three or four decades after 50.

In this groundbreaking journey, Peter de Kuster, founder of Passion Never Retires offers a compelling alternative to traditional retirement. Design Your Portfolio Life shows how to write a new story, adopt a new way of thinking and create a life and work you love and never want to retire from.

This periode after 50 was once relegated to winding down, but now it holds the promise of our most significant and passionate years, a time where we can be ourselves and contribute. Peter describes a Design Your Portfolio Life a balanced mix of work, learning, leisure, family time and giving back that individuals tailor to their personality and goals.

Using compelling stories of heroes and heroines in the city we travel in from past and present, Peter shows you  how to allocate one’s time and passion among competing needs and personal dreams.  He includes advice on discovering our callings, the entrepreneurial spirit, the role of legacy and more.

Peter elaborates a disciplined, step by step journey for creating a Portfolio Life. He explores with you long and short term Portfolios Life Stories, offering practical suggestions and exercises. He also shows how to deal with the emotional turbulence that is inevitable in this journey.  Design Your Portfolio Life is a guide not to surviving but to flourishing.  To create a life and work you love.  Peter holds that a Portfolio Life touches on what is really worth living for – those goals and purposes we need to call to mind throughout life’s journey.
