I live in Victoria, BC. A lot of people here are retired. My wife thinks I should be one of them.
I've tried retirement - more than once. It makes me fat. Most recently I retired from life as a real estate agent. And before that, from life as a lawyer. Why? They stopped being fun, and life is short.
Meanwhile, over the years and behind the scenes, I developed an intense interest in the Internet, and specifically, an interest in the many new ways the Internet can change the way business is done.
And so now (2012) I'm putting off retirement for a few more years. During those years I will be helping offline business owners to change their status from 'wallflower', sitting on the sidelines of the Internet, to 'engaged', tapping into the potential the Internet offers.
You will likely suspect I have a very understanding wife. I do!
