Welcome to Stock Trends Traders Network, Dan! This is the first week of its launch, so we are hoping to engage every level of investor experience. In my mind, it is always enjoyment that spurs our pursuits and it sounds like you have found a perfect way to focus your interests as you approach the "retirement" stage. Perhaps, you have started a new career.
I am retired, in the usually accepted way-sold my business! It was very profitable but I simply got tired of all the B.S.-I quit. Over the past ten years my sole livelihood, no pensions for independent business folks, has come from the various forms of investing. Previously, I have invested for years, yet not as a sole means of income-you meet an entirely new task master
It is an eye opening new profession, very satisfying, confidence building, hones cynicism to a fine art, compells you to face reality or lose money, manage terror/panic and caution over greed.
We all make foolish mistakes, especially since very few of us has been trained extensively in investing prior to getting involved. Once involved the mistakes and the training start, which is really an odd ball way of doing things if we would all be perfectly honest about it. I could have happily retired from the "work forces" of the economy at 19 devoting myself to pursuits which I was really interested in. Unfortunately the only thing I had going for me was youth.
My daughter is a letter carrier in Ottawa. After she graduated from Lakehead University and trained horses for awhile she announced that what she really wanted to do is be a letter carrier. So she started at the bottom and seems to be enjoying it. If all her old horse back riding injuries do not transpire against her, no dobt she will still with it.
