The truth is people are getting tired of a mediocre life. Living day-to-day, going to the same 9 to 5 job just to pay the bills and barely break even. We feel deep down inside that we were meant for more, but our hopes and dreams always seem to be just out of reach. The goal is retirement, but can you actually do the things you want to do after 65? Are you going to wind surf or go mountain climbing at 70 years old?

Retirement...that magical time when all of our dreams come true! We are conditioned to work through the prime of our lives, building up this pile of money, then when we finally reach that magical age when the kids are on their own, we get to go do aaalll the things we've dreamed of doing.

Here are my top 3 reasons why I won't retire and what I'm doing insteadRead more...
