Dr. Leslie Griesdorf: Benefits of Semi-Retirement

Dr. Leslie Griesdorf is a semi-retired businessman with decades of experience in dentistry and over a decade in investing. He’s an active trader on the stock market and he enjoys studying history or spending time with his family when he isn’t working.

If you’re trying to choose between full retirement and semi-retirement, benefits like these might convince you to follow Dr. Leslie Griesdorf’s lead and go for the latter:

  • Mental Health

Retirement can quickly lead to boredom, loneliness, a decreased sense of purpose and inactivity. In semi-retired life, though, you’re staving off all of the above by working part-time while still taking full advantage of a more open schedule.

  • Extra Funds

Retirement demands frugality to make your money last, and it often causes financial stress. Working part-time will bring in extra funds to reduce how much you need to worry about your wealth so you can fully enjoy your new lifestyle.
