Retirement is not the full-time job with the excitement and allure that Mary was anticipating.
Experiencing retirement for a short while, Mary quickly realized that she missed the daily “grind”. Can you imagine, missing the daily grind? I guess it all depends upon your perspective and the “depth of your personal well”.
Mary, the Denver business community is glad to have you back in the workforce—with 10,000 baby boomers leaving the workforce every day, it is great to see all that talent and experience now back in play.
