DENVER — Not that retirement feels very attainable these days, but Tina Lorenz may find a silver lining there anyway.

The consultant and investor, who calls herself the "Renegade Boomer," believes that more people in their 50s — and beyond — should resist retirement.

She says it's okay to spend some of your twilight years at the beach, but that challenging yourself can also be a treat.

"I think that there's so much more for people past 50 years old to offer. Often, we find ourselves being marginalized and not taken seriously — kind of shoved to the side," said Lorenz, who rocks a vibrant lavender haircut. "What I have found with the professionals I've worked with for almost two decades is that there's often another chapter, a second chapter that's just kind of waiting to emerge."

Lorenz also referenced some studies out of Europe, claiming that working longer can decrease the risk of developing Alzeimher's.
