My name is Shawn and I want to retire soon. Don’t we all!! By that I mean within the next 1 – 2 years, if my wife will let me!
I have worked in the I.T. field as an analyst/developer for the past 34 years, with the exception of a two year hiatus when we moved to Great Britain because of my wife’s work. I think if I had it my way, I would retire tomorrow. Unfortunately, life is expensive and I’m still putting my three kids through university. My oldest son completed his undergrad degree in April (2016). My second son just graduated this past April (2018) and my daughter is in her final semester (2019). One of my problems is that I won’t have much of a pension to speak of as I spent most of my career as an IT consultant. Hence the need to boost my retirement income. Thankfully, my wife will have a good pension with which we can fall back on but I would still like to find some opportunity which would help supplement my retirement income. And then I came across Wealthy Affiliate. I don’t even remember how I saw it, but I thought that this was the answer to my prayers. Now I know it’s not a get rich quick scheme (I’ve been burned by these in the past), and I’m still going through the wealth of training here, but I honestly think that when all is said and done, the training here will afford me with a way to boost my retirement income. After all, golf is not cheap and I’m hoping to do a lot of that when I retire.
The reason I created this website is to try and inform people who are in the same position as me, starting to think about retirement and how they are going to be able to afford a lifestyle based on their current retirement income. I believe the answer to that is through the Wealthy Affiliate program.
Again, my name is Shawn. It’s nice to meet you and feel free to contact me if you ever need anything. Drop me a comment below or you can always get in touch with me via WealthyAffiliate.com (here is a link to my profile) or you can use my email address below.
All the best!
