I retired. This was kind of a large milestone toward us leaving for our own extended sailing and cruising adventure, so now it’s done. Did you know that most folks entering the work force today are not even given the opportunity for retirement, since most companies don’t even offer it anymore? Most folks work for 5-7 different companies and it’s EXPECTED that they will quit and be rehired somewhere else to get more money, status or a job promotion. I never knew that and never cared to do it. Now that I’m retired after working for someone else for 20 years,,,I want to be work harder for myself and my family,,,,as my own small business. I’m retired and ok with that. I haven’t tried to get another job because I’m content to work on own my boat prepping it for extended cruising, take care of my kids and Quincy the Great Dane (who’s living on our boat), be the house-husband to my hot wife and work my ass off to improve my blog and website. Sure, I’m what’s considered a “hobbyist” blogger; but I don’t want to be a professional (it’s gotta stay fun). I mean, until now I have not had my own Facebook page or other social media,,,but that’s about to change as we try to ramp up the blog and website. We’re going to connect the blog to a Facebook Professional site, start our own YouTube channel and continue to work through our Pinterest site. I have a lot of energy, talent and experience to put into improving the blog and talking to others about doing the same thing that my family’s doing (selling most everything and moving onto a sailboat). We’re going to start running a drone and learning to edit our GoPro videos for the YouTube channel and also put them into our blog posts. We’ll always keep our blog, website and YouTube channel free, since we just like to bring the adventures to you via our own experiences.
