Everyone is waiting and looking forward for their retirement. This is one of the reason why we keep ourselves invested. The reason why we need to add a buying power to our portfolio. The reason why we are working hard. The reason why we are saving and living frugally.
Another definition from members of the forum:
Retirement is the point where a person stops employment completely. A person may also semi-retire by reducing work hours.
I'm trying to figure out my own definition of retirement, here is what came out of my head:
Retirement is spending time with the people you loved without worrying that you will run out of cash.Retirement from 9-5 hours job. Retirement from your day job while receiving passive income from real estate, stocks, mutual funds, blogging, side line businesses etc. etc. Retirement is having a good life. Retirement is the time to help others and continuously making an impact. Retirement is the time which you contributed something to the world to be a better place.
Let's work together hand in hand. Together we can achieve our retirement.
P.S. Today is my last day as Cost Accountant from one of the biggest company in oil and gas industry, I counted and waited for this time of the year. Retirement from 9-5 hours job. I might be a full time Newbie Mentor. I'm hoping that I have a full support from newbies.
