Couples Retirement Coaching
"Relationship coaching with Roberta helped my husband and I achieve a level of communication that just didn't exist before. We tried doing this on our own but old habits got in the way. We now have tools for turning conflict into purpose and direction as we plan for the next chapter of our lives. Roberta was an expert guide in helping us learn a different way of communicating so that we each feel heard and acknowledged."
Linda S. Anderson
"Thank you Roberta for creating a safe, structured and supportive environment for us to talk about our money concerns. Your nonjudgmental manner and empowering exercises helped us talk about sensitive and charged issues, and gain greater awareness of our strengths and challenges around financial issues. Your insights were most helpful, as was your skill as a mediator. The excellent exercises helped us both learn about ourselves and our patterns in our individual and collective relationship to money and helped deepen our awareness, as well as empowered us to take valuable action steps. This work will live on in our daily lives and support us long into the future!"
“Life transitions like turning fifty and becoming an "empty nester" really threw me for a loop. Roberta offered me just the right amount of listening, advice, and insight. She truly gets it and is definitely a skilled life coach.”
'I never expected that finding a new career would be easy but was a little surprised that it could be fun. I began to listen to my dreams again and realized that I had options and possibilities. The coaching process has taken me down a path from which there is no turning back. I now have the tools to keep moving forward in the direction I need to be going.'

'At age 42 I made a career change that I thought would take me to retirement. After a couple of years, I knew my plan wasn't right, but had no idea what to do next. Although I was good at motivating myself and taking action, something was missing. Roberta helped me to clarify what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I learned to see with new eyes the things that had been important to me all along and how I could integrate them into more meaningful work. After fumbling around for five years, I was on my way to a new beginning in six months'
"Roberta guided me through a process that has reconfigured my relationship with money. The concept that we have a "relationship" with money and it can be changed for the better, was a realization. I discovered where my beliefs about money come from, what habits I have held onto, and finally what I need to let go of to move on in my life. Though unexpected, in retrospect I learned to shine a light on what I need to forgive in others and in myself. This was a powerful exercise, and one that helped release burdens I had been carrying. Not only do I feel better about money, but I have been much more prosperous financially and personally since my coaching experience."
Knute N. Kallander, M.S.
“Money Coaching with Roberta helped me achieve new results in my life. Going through the Money Coaching process deepened my awareness of long standing patterns and beliefs that have influenced some fear based decisions related to money. It has been a relief to let go of what no longer works for me and move on personally and professionally.”
"Ms. Roberta K. Taylor, a retirement transition coach, author and speaker, offered her expertise on retirement during a very informative and educational segment hosted on New York’s highly rated public service show AKTINA FM-WNYE 91.5FM for the series ON THE AIR on December 15, 2013. In this very well received segment, Ms. Taylor also engaged herself in a very vibrant 40-minute discussion with AKTINA FM’s diverse listeners who called in for advice. Ms. Taylor’s unique insights on retirement planning, along with her very pleasant and articulate presentation truly won our audience! Certainly we will be bringing her back as already announced for a follow up segment."
Trasitioning to the Second Half of Life
"Roberta Taylor’s presentation at the UBS/Wile Group’s 7th annual Family Forum day in Atlanta, Georgia on “10 Must-Have Conversations for Transitioning to the Second Half of Life” was a must for anyone transitioning to retirement or an encore career. While her presentation was designed for couples, as a recent widow I was interested in her thoughts on Health and Wellness, especially as I consider health care options for the future. I encourage couples to read her book, The Couples Retirement Puzzle, and retain her for coaching and consulting. Having these conversations is one of the greatest gifts a couple can give each other! I highly recommend Roberta as a speaker on topics related to retirement transition and encore careers."
Financial Planning Workshop
“I had the pleasure of listening to Roberta Taylor speak about money and financial planning for women at a recent workshop. She understands her subject very well and has a warm, open and engaging style that allows people to listen and ‘hear’ what she is saying. And people leave her workshop with some tangible ‘to do’s’ which is the best teaching there is.”
Susan K. Moulton
"Roberta Taylor enters a room filled with strangers and almost magically creates community. Like many other facilitators, Roberta is articulate, intelligent, thoughtful, and professional. But what sets her apart and makes her truly special is her ability to quickly and easily establish trust with her audience. People relax, open themselves to the experience she is providing, and participate freely. Roberta's programs are interactive and characterized by warmth, humor, and the wisdom that comes from her own life experience."
Reinventing Retirement Workshop
" 'Discovering What's Next™' has been most fortunate to have Roberta offer her 'Reinventing Retirement' workshop to our community. I know that her personal warmth, her engaging style, as well as her content expertise, are what brings people back again and again. Thanks, Roberta."
