Some folks have jobs that they love doing and don't see it as work and don't care to retire from it. Examples, a Singer, an Actor, A Teacher(a few), Coaches. I'm sure there are many more that I haven't named. I'm a Real Estate Agent and I work from home and I love what I do. I also make money online so I don't think I would retire from either one because of the flexibility it provides. How about you, would you retire from doing what you love doing?

We sold our sugar cane farm and retired about 12 years ago. However, I continued with the voluntary work in children's ministry I have been engaged in for many years and I have no intention of retiring. I work long hours writing lessons, programs, workshops, training materials etc, designing promotional materials and doing general secretarial work. I travel a lot, often long distances, to conduct training seminars and to administer holiday clubs. This sometimes involves a week of almost no sleep - just 4 hours a night and hectic days. Sometimes I wonder why a 73 year old woman is doing this, but I know the answer. I love doing what I do, and while my God continues to give me the ability, I will continue.

I am a in the business of yarn manufacturing and i dont intend to retire. I would rather like to take my business to new heights. Even when my children are grown up and capable of managing business i would be there in the backseat to guide them and oversee that the decisions taken are in the best interest of the firm.

i love doin my job... conducting trainings and consultancy jobs but when it's time for me to retire i am ever willing to give it up. i already have my retirement plan as early as today (two more decades hehehehe) and there's one thing i love doing that i can still continue doing... crocheting! it's a hobby but a productive hobby for me. i know aside from my monthly retirement fee i will have an additional income from doing crochet! but i will be forever a social worker and a special mom to my special kids and family... no retirement for them! i am looking forward for this day to come i will be a full-time wife and mom.
