From wrestling with feelings of anger and denial, to redefining what "success" really means to him - Ashok doesn't hold back about the tough challenges and mindset shifts required to retire with purpose.

So how did Ashok and his wife smooth out their "remerging" as empty-nesters? And what surprising twists, unexpected joys and detours has he discovered beyond the office grind?

This refreshingly candid chat is a must-listen for anyone daydreaming about downshifting from the corporate hustle. Ashok's hard-earned insights may just inspire you to rethink your "one life to live" philosophy.
