I'm Rewiring!

May 20th, 2008 at 02:12 am

I have been following this blog since January '08 and am very excited to be joining this interesting group of like-minded frugalites. After almost 30 years in education, I decided to retire... three years short of the "optimum" time. The decision came after much reflection that focused on questions such as: How long can I survive all this stress? How much $$ do I really need to live a decent life in retirement? What other options do I have? THIS BLOG helped me to make one of the most important decisions of my life: I will be officially retired in August of 2008. My hope is that through this forum, I can learn and share tips to maximize resources in retirement. One thing I'd like to share today is a very good book I recently read: Don't Retire, Rewire! by Jeri Sedlar and Rick Miners. It is a must read for anyone seriously considering retiring soon but is looking to stay connected to work about which you are passionate.

    Awesome Analise! I am just graduating High School so I am on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. That is really cool that you are able to retire. I would bet that most people in your profession didn't save or plan like you did.

    Welcome to the blogs! I'm envious of you! I'm only 30, so I have many more years until I get to retire! My parents are in their early 60s and still working. Kudos to you for planning so you can retire early!
