Retirement…                                                                      

Hello!  I am Christine Chico, and thank you for taking the time to let me introduce my self.Chrisitne  I am turning 65 February 2017 and will be what has traditionally been considered “retirement age”.  Actually I have been “retired” for several years. Over the past few  year I have been looking at ways to supplement my income without being on someone else’s schedule. I decided to share what I have learned and want to help other women gain financial independence.

Job…

I spent most of my working life in health care.  The work was rewarding and at times it was difficult. The hours were long and unpredictable. I had many days when I did not see the light of day.  Many evening I returned home to my family asleep and a cold meal.  Although I loved my work, I did not want my work to be my life.  I was able to leave a job several years before my actual “retirement age” and do not regret it.   Since leaving my job I travel, spent time with my family and friends and pursued other interests.

Travel…

Travel is one of my passions. I love visiting new places and meeting new people. Meeting local residents in a new area of the world is exciting for me.  It is amazing that dispute difference in language, culture, religion and traditions how much alike we all are. Not only do enjoy spending time with local inhabitants I also the comforts of a luxury resort.  Spending time at an all inclusive or a cruise is great!  I have found ways to do this without breaking the bank.

Passions…

Besides travel I art projects, painting and making jewelry .  Spending time in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes and then sharing a meal with people I love brings me joy.  My daughter is grown and has her own child now. Seeing my daughter develop into a beautiful women, shaping life with her and the joy of spending time with my grand daughter are priceless. No job could pay enough for me to give up spending times doing the things I love.

Financial Freedom…

I wanted to make money on my own terms and also know how to make the most of that money.  I decided to stop exchanging so much of my time for money and get more from the money I have. Now I want to follow my passions and enjoy life. I want to be financially free to live my life on your my own terms. I have done research and I learn much. I have mentors and teacher to help me reach this point.  I want to share what I have learned.

Personal Goals…

I hope to get to know more about you as this site moves forward.  If you are retiring and want to supplement your income, a young mother who wants to stay at home with your children or a single women who refuses to be caught in the “rat race” would like to get to know you and help you move toward your personal goals.  As I mentioned no matter how different we may seem on the surface we are so much alike.  I would enjoy reading your comment so please share.  Also post questions and let me know areas that are of interest to you.  I do want this to be a two way experience.

Thank you, Christine.
