This is a very interesting take on what retirement is starting to look like for a lot of people. I have thought for a while that retirement wasn’t really a goal that I felt like I was moving towards, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to reach a point of financial security where money isn’t a concern. It just means that i don’t want to stop doing the things that I love to do. I’ve been lucky enough to find joy in my work and moreover find an entire category of employment that makes me happy to be a part of.
What’s interesting about this post is a look towards making that which you love sustain you (financially) for longer than just your job’s paycheck might. Tony has a similar direction of thought as you see coming from Gary V in his book Crush It, which I highly recommend. I can’t think of a better way to make a living than to share the things that I love to do with a broader audience.
