Ever since I was a young boy I had an entrepreneurial spirit. I was careful with money; I collected and saved things that I thought I could profit from later. I found ways to make money by non traditional methods. The concept of Financial Independence came to me naturally. However, I am a workaholic who doesn’t want to “go to work” so to speak. I once read that the definition of entrepreneur is a person who is willing to work 80 hours per week to avoid working a 40 hour 9 to 5 workweek. That describes me perfectly.
Now that i am at the point in my life that I am calling The Fourth Quarter; I am quickly moving toward an age where most people would expect to retire. My life however has had some unfortunate twists, I have been divorced twice and am now married a third time. I finally got it right this time by the way. But on account of my divorces I had to start all over again from scratch to invest and save for retirement at age 40.
My blog is about my journey; working toward a satisfying retirement on what will be a pretty low retirement income. I strongly believe I have it all worked out, I have been thinking, dreaming and planning for this my whole life. I want to share with you what I have learned along the way with the hope that you could benefit from it as you plan for your retirement.
Please follow my blog and see how my plan is going. Let’s learn together what new tricks and strategies we can use to help us on the way to being able to enjoy retirement to the full. Feel free to chime in and share your ideas and experiences too. Open communication will benefit everyone who follows my blog.
I will be covering a wide variety of topics relating to my theme including:

Each person has their own set of life experiences, skill sets and circumstances, but we all want the same thing; a life of independence and contentment while we enjoy our life in the Fourth Quarter.
