Fisherman on Lake Mary

Fishing on a Tranquil Lake in Minnesota

So You’re Retired…Now, what?  A Personal Journey!

When my husband first retired from the corporate world his first thoughts focused on buying a lake home and fishing and golfing forever!

He was only 53 years old but had worked for 30 years for the same company.  His job involved a lot of traveling so he was really looking forward to a life of leisure.  That was in October…

By February, he was climbing the walls!  It’s cold in Minnesota and ice fishing wasn’t the kind of fishing he had in mind.  A trip to Arizona for a month was a lot of fun, but that got old, too.

So we purchased a smoothie concessions business and spent the next several years selling our smoothies at art fairs and festivals in Minnesota.  During the winters, we set our operation up in the FargoDome in Fargo, North Dakota – about an hour and a half from where we lived. That was his gig!

I wanted something else but wasn’t exactly sure what would be fun and lucrative at the same time.Smoothies at the Dome Sept 2012

I began looking for income ideas for retirement that would allow me to work from home on my terms.

I found just what I was looking for with Wealthy Affiliate.

I’ll explain all about that in another post.  Stay tuned!
