Retirement: Here's how we created an entirely new working lifestyle
by Larry Steward
My wife and I recently made a decision to find a way to relocate and create an opportunity that would allow both of us to enjoy something we love to do and make money doing it.
We were living in Westchester County of New York at the time. I've always believed in this concept and figured if we did enough research we would eventually find a sweet spot out there some where.
Well, here is how it turned out. My wife loves horses and I love doing home improvement projects. What we uncovered on the Internet was an ad from a couple in South Carolina who own a 200 acre horse farm and needed help to manage it.
Everything quickly feel into place and we now find ourselves working hard but absolutely loving everything about it ... well maybe not the high heat and humidity this summer but even that will get better.
My wife is 65 and I'm 72 but we're far from hanging our hats and accepting full retirement.
The point is, anyone can create their own opportunity if they set a course, do their homework and of course pursue something they have the experience and passion to finally become what they were meant to be.
I would welcome other thoughts about this and gladly share more information about how you too could find that magic combination you may be looking for.
