Hey everyone, I am Jamie and over the last 3 years I have had a serious struggle adjusting to retirement.
I was an electrical engineering professor in Taiwan until 2013. During my career, I received a Lifetime Achievement award, was named Best Teacher, was named to the Invention Hall of Fame, and was included in Marquis Who’s Who Publication.
I retired in 2013 and immigrated to Canada. I experienced high living costs including the expenses associated with my daughters's university education. My bank savings decreased faster than expected. I was not happy. Yes, I understood I was not ready for retirement living.
I tried to find some ways to improve my retirement living. Some failed and some worked. My learning may prove valuable and helpful to other retirees. I experienced many challenges trying to supplement my pension. I encountered many scams and false reviews on the internet, that wasted a lot of my time and money. Sometimes I felt so frustrated and hopeless.
I joined Wealthy Affiliate on July 2016. I want to develop my own online business to improve my life and help other retirees. Now I am building a website about Affordable Retirement Living. I wish it work and forward success!
