Overview

Providing business and professional services

BooterNation.com, America's newest thought leader on "successful aging," concentrates on the attitudes, expectations, and practices of later-life individuals – and especially how they structure their lives, manage their time, and engage with others to bring meaning to their post-career lives.  
We also focus on how enterprises – public, private and not-for-profit – make full use of the time, talent and treasure of later-life individuals, a large and growing national asset.  We leave to others to address financial, health, fitness, pension, money management, and public policy issues – issues that are already widely and competently covered by mass and specialized media as well as many public policy and special interest organizations.

BooterNation.com provides advisory and consulting services based on principles found in Reboot! We work with individuals and groups to help later-life Americans to become booters. We also works with enterprises to develop more flexible workplace arrangements in corporations, government agencies, non-profits and business and professional services organizations – including companies, firms, partnerships, and institutions.

Flexible, age-friendly workplaces are important because they can serve the converging interests of New Economy enterprises to retain knowledge workers and later-life individuals, most of whom (often as many as 75 percent) desire to keep working in some capacity in their post-career years.  The spread of flexible, age-friendly workplaces will give more choices to later-life Americans, increase the competiveness and effectiveness of American business, and enrich the fabric of American society.

Solutions that work for both individuals and enterprises through strategic career planning is also an issue in other developed nations, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Great Britain.  To serve clients from around the English-speaking world, BooterNation.com works in concert with act3 Planning for Talent, a talent, leadership and career management consultancy with programs tailored for senior leaders, mature executives, and critical talent.  For more information, about act3, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, see www.act3planning.com/

Consulting and advisory services include forums, roundtables, on-site workshops, post-career planning services, and special services customized to the need of the client organization.  In addition, BooterNation designs and manages positioning studies, analytical studies, assessment research, case studies, survey research and field studies.

What do you do when your career is over but your life isn't?

Making later-life work

It’s better to wear out than rust out.”  That is the message of Reboot!  While American culture glamorizes the “Golden Years” of endless leisure and amusement, Phil Burgess rejects retirement, as he makes the case for returning to work in the post-career years, a time he calls later life.
