"Retirement is not the end, but rather the opportunity for a new beginning,” says Larry Jacobson, a leading authority on non-fiscal retirement planning. Jacobson uses his own successful experience from his business career, retiring from the corporate world, and from achieving his personal dreams, as proven models for his coaching. His experience has attracted entrepreneurs, CEO’s, doctors, attorneys, teachers, public figures and political candidates.

     Not accepting that retirement is a time to stop growing, he coaches clients to discover untapped passions beyond their previous career. He then combines these passions with the knowledge from their vocation to build a plan of action incorporating both into a retirement of fulfillment and purpose.  


     Jacobson is a recognized thought leader in the field of non-fiscal retirement planning, which is gaining popularity as a supplement to traditional fiscal planning. His personal coaching and award-winning online video classroom were developed by reverse engineering his own successful experience and that of his clients. Larry successfully transitioned from CEO to sailor and achieved his dream of sailing around the world. His next transition was from sailor to a six-time literary award-winning author and motivational speaker. Now Buoy Coaching focuses on coaching programs that rethink and redefine retirement. The groundbreaking program, Sail Into Retirement™, which combines home study and personal coaching feedback, has quickly achieved notoriety as the gold standard in the field.

     A California native, circumnavigator and adventurer, Larry Jacobson is an avid sailor with over 50,000 blue water miles under his keel. Author of the six-time award-winning memoir of his six-year circumnavigation in the book, The Boy Behind the Gate, he also recently published Navigating Entrepreneurship, in which he shares his own practical experience. His latest writing is The Top 5 Retirement Planning Secrets, available on this site.
