Thinking outside the typical job-hunting box

Starting over at 57

I may have to retire from my career job but that does not mean I am retiring from ever earning an income again. I have marketable skills that are valued in today’s workplace market. There are lots of income opportunities out there. I simply have to figure out how to turn these opportunity options into an income reality that works for me.

Income social status!

Are we talking about my retirement expectations or yours?

Starting over at 57

I'm being blasted from colleagues and friends as “jumping ship” prematurely into retirement because I’m not using some pre-packaged presumed assumption of how I will be living my life when I retire from my current career job. Whose retirement is this, anyway?
