“I actually don’t use the word retirement very often. Stopping work doesn’t appeal to me. It was never about cutting the cord on work altogether. It’s about having the power and the freedom to do what I want when I want. To work on the things that I want to work on regardless of whether they pay or not.”

“I’m a marketing manager with a big pharmaceutical company making $136K in addition to a bonus. An opportunity came my way, I interviewed and got an offer for $140K with no bonus. I’m in negotiations with the company and explained that if I sign on with them I’ll be taking a $20-30K hit. What should I do?”
