Is working full-time for yourself retirement?
Although I am not fully self-employed yet, I believe self-employment is (my) retirement.
Why? Well, for starters, I'm someone who gets bored fairly easily and would be bored after a month of retirement. I'd want to work and work and work and find something to occupy my time and mind. I don't really want to be a career internet marketer, but am going to use this to fund future projects.
I don't even want to say it's controlling my own destiny, per se, but rather I am where I want to be in life, but I want to work on and start larger ventures.
What about you?
