My Career after Retirement
by Barbara S
I decided 2 years after I retired at 59 that I needed structure in my life.
I saw an ad in the community education catalog wanting people to clean houses for seniors. I signed up. I only had a few clients, then had a lot of clients.
Most have went into nursing homes or passed away and I only have 3 clients left through the county. However, through word of mouth, I now have 20 clients. Not every week, but some once a month, every 3 weeks, every other week, and one every week.
So far my body is holding up...but have been thinking about cutting back and by next December 2023 when I turn 70 I want to fully retire.
The thing is, I've become good friends with all my clients and really don't want to, or know how to tell them I'm retiring.
But I know it's something I need to do because if I'm still cleaning at 75...UGH!
