Traveling While Freelancing Your Skills
When you finally make it to your retirement years, you should spend your time doing the things you love – and the things you’ve always wanted to try. I mean, after all, you’ve certainly earned it! I know that I plan to travel a lot in retirement, and I know that many other people want to do the same. If you still want to work a little bit in retirement to avoid boredom, keep your brain working, or even just earn some extra cash, then freelancing your skills is a great idea. It allows you to pick when and where you take jobs, and you can set your rates. You can craft a schedule that works perfectly for you, and you don’t even have to be consistent about it.
