Sold my business a year ago - I am 36 with wife and 2 kids - took a position with the new owners. Working for new owners is hard and not something I plan to do for long-term.
My neighbor is young and "retired" , he's on welfare , I think he's financially secure , the cheques just keep coming , he drinks beer everyday , mows his lawn occasionally.Sold my business a year ago - I am 36 with wife and 2 kids - took a position with the new owners.

Financially secure with no debt. Really am curious what other 'young' retiree's do to keep themselves occupied.
Vacations from what?If you don't know yet, learn to invest and manage your capital so that it will grow. Beside that, take long vacations and find some hobbies.
Vacations from the wonderful Canadian weather, or vacations to see something else than the same streets all the time.Vacations from what?
I have a few friends that were "financially secure" when quite young , didn't last long though , there back to work now , by necessity , not by choice.
Good luck , be careful.
How is that being "retired"?took a position with the new owners. Working for new owners
I'm not retired. I am considering retirement but at 36 am torn.How is that being "retired"?
Financial independence maybe, but not retired.
Speaking of which, these days the lines between retirement and financial independence and semi-employement are blurred.
Gone are the days of 9 - 5 jobs until official retirement age and then living purely on pension.
I am not from that generation so I wouldn't know what that was like anyway.
Wow, that sounds like my life right now (still working)The first thing I did was take over most of the house work (wife Still Working).
Then I setup a routine get up 6am do my walk and get the Globe drink coffee.
