Mark Skeie

Mark Skeie was newly retired and looking for a new pathway for his life when he participated in the Evolve leadership development class. His project was to development a retirement planning workshop. He developed the workshop but felt there was more to be done. Mark started to explore the possibility of developing a workbook for retirement planning.

He partnered with Janet Skeie, who took the course a few years later, and over 15 contributors, editors, and designers to produce the guidebook, Mapping Your Retirement: A Personal Guide to Maintaining Your Health, Managing Your Money, and Living Well. Mark and Janet established a nonprofit organization to distribute the guide and accompanying workshops (www.mappingyourretirement.org).

Organizations in 17 states have purchased the facilitator’s guides that help individual continue to live productive, contributing lives as they age.
