It seems like A LOT of people are afraid to retire even though they may be qualified to. Here you can ask questions to retired people on how to prepare for retirement, how is their retirement going, things we retirees wish we did before retiring or things we wished we knew before going out. Or anything else you wish to ask a retired person. Maybe this thread can help people take the next big step in their lives without so much worry. Hope , you professionals at Brown Cafe can stay on topic and keep it clean. A little humor will be welcome but my hope is that this thread can be helpful to people. Thank You.
