This is always in my mind. And, I asked myself again today because somebody retired from my job. I cannot be idle when I stopped my 9 to 5 job. I’d like to open up a business, either a real store or online. Just something that would keep me busy.
Another co-worker who retired last year, she opened up a beauty salon at her basement. She had a previous working experience as a beauty consultant and finally now that she has retired from her job, she pursues her dream of owning one. Little by little she buys beauty machines for her shop. Last time I visited her at home, a beauty salon equipment and Led light therapy were already installed. Her whole basement is painted into purple and all the chairs are black. She will be doing it solo for the first few months then when the business picks up she might hire somebody to help her. I jokingly tell her that I am available for any part time job.
I am not doing the same thing as her but maybe something lighter. A few hours of working each day is fine. I still have more than a decade left to decide. It’s just when you are so exhausted for that day, you cannot wait until the day to say goodbye to your present job.
