Why choose 'Retirement as a Niche'
A question a number of people have asked me, and there are a few answers to that: first I have been retired for 2 years and know about it, two the retirement community is HUGE.
I was fortunate that I could retire at 49, spent the last couple of years spoiling myself and joined WA to begin a second career. I've learned that retirement offers so many good things like:
Freedom - there is nothing like waking up in the morning, at whatever time you want to wake up, and realize the day is yours. Bonus, every day is like that, it's all yours. I am a night owl, most of my WA work is actually done from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., so having the freedom to study and work at whatever time I want is amazing.
Time - you actually have time to do what you want and enjoy life. I remember when I worked at my government job I had to get up at 5 a.m. and would not make it home until 7 - 8 p.m., this did not leave much time for anything else. I've reacquainted myself with a lot of hobbies and passions that had fallen by the wayside, have time to visit the family, and have time to just sit and breath.
Travel - I love to travel, which I'm hoping to do a lot more of when my website is fully up and running. Have you ever taken a cruise? Did you notice the average age of the cruiser? Most of them are retired, they love to have fun and they love to spend. So one of my goals is to help retirees get the income they need to travel, take cruises if that is their preference, and make money to enjoy their travels.
And so on, and so on....
I could go on, there are so many reasons to have chosen Retirement as a niche, and being retired I can tell you it is a very enjoyable part of my life.
