Because I am height and weight proportionate and ￼have little to no health issues; I have been officiating high school football.
I still run and go to the gym if the off season.February 11, 2024 at 6:40 pm #91226Peter
Was a bit older than that but I volunteered for an organization that provides assistance to seniors and people that need help financially. I provided transportation for seniors going to appointments. You can usually do it as many or as few days as you like. It was a great experience.
The way I described it was “over the course of a week I would have 300 years worth of life experience in my car”.
You get to know people, they’re very appreciative and I actually got to learn a lot from all that wisdom.

No, you don’t need an occupation to stay productive. Get a hobby or bunch of them then you are all set. By 40, if you have a family & kids then it’s really fun to raise/take care of the kids. You can be very busy teaching/ coaching them and traveling the world with them.
I took my kids to 40 countries before their college years.February 11, 2024 at 6:41 pm #91228Christina
I don’t need a part time job to feel productive. I golf, ski, play tennis, gym, spa, travel, volunteer at the animal shelter and help out my senior neighbors.February 11, 2024 at 6:41 pm #91229Dan
Financial planning! It’s so fulfilling to help people create a plan for their ideal life and then to help them achieve it. Plus, you can work from home on your own schedule and be totally independent.
There are some drawbacks as a career changer but it’s all figuroutable!February 11, 2024 at 6:41 pm #91230Navi
School bus driving… It gives structure to my day, covers my utilities and other small bills, and there’s a daily social component to it as well.February 11, 2024 at 6:41 pm #91231Jonas
