I am 61 years old. I have been employed with the Federal Government for 23 years as a HR Specialist. I am a mother of one daughter. My oldest daughter passed away 3 years ago. Grandmother of 4 wonderful children ranging from ages 12 to 2 years old. Two girls and two boys. I am looking forward to retiring in the next couple years. However, years of working hard for the government after retirement I would love to continue making money but at a slower pace, and at my leisure. I have longed to be a self made entrepenuer, but didn't have the means or the knowledge to do so. Joining the Wealthy Affiliate is a good choice and I am excited to have access to learning everything there is to know in becoming a successful small business owner.
