We do what we can do regarding retirement because we can do it. I retired at 57, worked off and on for other companies in the industry because I wanted to do so and because they wanted my experience. During that part of my retirement I managed a plant with 150 employees for a couple years.
We now live in a 6500 sq ft home (bought 9 years ago) on 5 1/2 acres (with horses), recently appraised at $650,000...we have no mortgage payment and no credit card debt, and we have an annual retirement income in excess of $50,000.
We do what we want when we want to do it. We also help others in various ways, including financial. And I consult with people on alternative health care matters. I am only 4 years away from that 80 mark, and have no intention of slowing down. Also have no intention of working for other people. We like retirement, and one thing we do not do is watch TV - our choice is no TV connectivity in our home.
God is good, and we thank Him for providing for us.
That’s a great, inspiring post. Thank you.
