Walking 60 by 60!
At AdventuRetired we stress to those asking about what to do to get ready for retirement is to find your best you and keep working on improvement! You will never be younger than you are the day you retire, so don't sit too soon! These words definitely reflect our guest this episode. Virginia (Ginny) Richter and I have a history! She was my boss in South Texas and I had the great privilege of teaching her son when he was in first grade (now a successful attorney)! It was so much fun talking to her about her retirement adventure and we know you will enjoy it also (and may be inspired to do your own).
