Nine retirees have expressed their opinions regarding their retirement scenarios. One unifying factor among the nine people was that they all needed to figure out what would happen next in their lives as they left their occupations in the past. Their solutions and reactions were varied, ranging from picking up new hobbies to literally travelling the world. Generally speaking, even though they may not have all chosen to retire at that specific point in their lives, they all have found a way to make retirement work for them.
- For Bill Brown, retirement ended up meaning a woodworking shed and a new hobby.
- Former New York police officer David Fisher enjoys spending time with his kids and grandchildren.
- Karen Stermitz had a taste for adventure and sold her possessions so that she could travel.
“For nine retirees, the circumstances of retiring and how life looked afterwards have been very different.”
