Life Long Learners | Retiree Dreamers

Don’t Let Another Year Pass You By Without Achieving Your Life Long Dreams.

Let’s face it—age really is just a number. Being a retiree or near retirement age is an opportunity to finally pursue and achieve your dreams once and for all.

If you have had enough of putting your educational and career dreams aside year after year, J. S. Bullock Associates, LLC | The Brokerage for Dreams™ would like to do its’ part by equipping you with the skills to overcome at least two recognized barriers that many with your experience face. These are the lack of confidence to enter college or a new career at this stage in your life, and the access to educational programs and professional opportunities.


  • In less than 20 years, more than 70 million people will be over the age of 65 in the United States.[1]
  • The number of people nearing retirement age that are still working beyond 65 has dramatically increased in the past decade.
  • The population of older citizens who work full-time nearly doubled from 1995 to 2007, with the number of employed men over 65 rising to 75 percent, and employment among women the same age increasing by nearly twice as much, at 147 percent.[2]


Some of the major hurdles retirees and those nearing retirement age face in today’s workforce, however, are issues such as age discrimination, educational disadvantages, and keeping up with current technological advancements.


  • Adult learners make up nearly 40 percent of all postsecondary learners.
  • About 55 percent of adult learners 40 years of age and older are likely to attend a four-year college.
  • From 2009 to 2011, 1 out of every 3 adult learners over age 40 who decided to pursue a college degree were full-time students.[3]

So you see, it is indeed possible to fulfill your life long dreams as long as you don’t let age stop you! If so, J. S. Bullock & Associates, LLC | The Brokerage for Dreams™ is willing to help you.
