“Money can buy happiness.
It just depends on how you spend it.”
Nancy L. Anderson
Retiring at age 50 was my dream. Since that dream didn’t come true, I did the next best thing and moved to my dream retirement location anyways.
The great recession may have set me back a few years, but I thought, “why wait to live the dream?”
You can enjoy your life today and save for retirement at the same time. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing and writing about transitioning to retirement on Forbes.com and learning to ski at age 50 on the Deer Valley Ski Resort blog.
Money is like time, we waste a lot without realizing it.
Though with time, we all have the same 24 hours. With money, we have what we have. The key is to make the most of the money you have. Even if you are a late starter and haven’t saved a penny, you still have hope for a successful retirement.
