This year will mark an exciting time for me. I am preparing and planning to retire in a few short months from today at 591/2. I know that most people wait until they are 62 or 65 to retire, waiting for their Pensions to get bigger, or Social Security benefits to get the maximum benefit possible. As for me, I am not sure that Social Security will be available when I turn 65, and Medicare, well that’s another blog post for another day.
I personally am not choosing to wait but will document my journey as I 2018 comes to a close and 2019 begins in full swing, I believe there is more to life than working a job you don’t enjoy.
If you’re in a job that is not fulfilling, and you feel that you need to enter another chapter in your life, it may be time to start thinking about other alternatives. With a little research and planning, you may be able to leave and do what fulfills you. I don’t intend to stop working, but to pursue things that bring joy to my life. I am excited about what is to come. Please engage In the conversation, What are your plans for your retirement? How do you plan to accomplish your goals to get there?
Until the next blog
