After 40 years as a cop, I am utilizing my law degree. Most of my work is pro bono. I'm not doing it to pad my income.

Maybe you need a new approach ..what you do is rent a Porsche for the day ...then get that Barbie doll that comes with the Barbie doll Amex platinum card .....take a picture of a house in Malibu ...then get it it all together in photoshop ..

Blend in the Porsche, the house in Malibu together in the back ground ,then get the little Barbie doll hand holding the credit card in the foreground....now we are ready for the clincher ...take a picture of your lil Winkee dink and put it near the little Barbie hand that is holding the little Barbie credit card , that lil thing will look huge in comparison ....now you got everything you need to attract one of those young babes.


If that don’t work then you have to get back to basics ...DOES THIS RAG SMELL LIKE CHLOROFORM TO YOU ?

Since so many here seem to care about labeling, the term that's been proposed for someone who retires from their main job and works at one or more side businesses is "pre-tirement". My side businesses are website development and life coaching.

since I retired early (several times), I find it more 'acceptable' (by retirement police) to just say... "I'm between jobs". Don't need or plan on another job, but if something fun that I want to learn comes along I just may get 'paid' for training / travel / enjoyment.

I know several 'retirees' who work for fun and give all their earned income to others in need.

I just call them 'nice'. I don't call them out for 'working' (even tho some are over age 80.)

My grandfather farmed until age 93, it was good for him (until he fell off the tractor while refueling and got engulfed in a big fire.) Lost him, and the tractor, (and a nearby shed). Probably would have been a good idea to 'outsource' his fueling chores to a younger monkey. Another 94 YO friend fell into a grain auger, (lucky to survive) so we made him stay on the tractor while dumping loads.

My method was to ask women if they wanted to go for a ride in my Vette. Of course, when we got to the parking lot and they found out I had a Chevette and not a Corvette, my chances diminished greatly .

I retired at 72 years old the beginning of October, 2017, and do OK on maxed out Social Security and my small pension. I'm building my businesses because I enjoy what I do, it keeps my mind active, and I would like to build up my savings (100% of what I make from my side biz goes into savings) so I have more $$ for things like travel and hobbies - and to build up my rainy day funds. I'm also creating an ESL ministry at church, so I'm also doing the fun volunteer thing too.

I'm still adjusting to being retired, and worried I'll get too comfortable, if that makes sense.
No the company has a platform that you use. It is interactive slides. I taught 3 classes this morning. One was on games. I applied at a bunch of companies and some rejected me because of my age. I work for QKids. They book for you instead of the parents picking. Kids are so darn cute. It makes my day.
