So, here I am, looking at retirement and knowing full well it’s impossible at the moment. The past years have been spent with startups, not enough pay, lots of stock and none of it worth much yet.
I think I’m in that unique group of millions of boomers, aging, wishing to head out camping DURING the week while others are toiling away, and here I am getting stuff ready for work tomorrow. Just like I’ve done for the past 50 years. I have to admit, I asked for it – bad planning, way too optomistic, and way too much trust in my friends that founded companies, only to discover maybe the product was not as ready for market as I thought. Or they were not as good a business person as I thought – but the bottom line, it was my decision so I have only myself to blame… but that will not stop me from complaining!!!
