55-Year-old, Baby Boom, married with 2 kids in college.  Interested in a financial plan to help them plan for an early retirement once the kids have completed college.  This couple has a large home, plans to downsize when the kids graduate from college and then move to a smaller, single story home.  A non-traditional retirement is an option – starting a second career or step-down job.  This would provide a challenge and income for the pre-retirement years.
