No way, I'm not going...

It seems ADP has done a bit of research on various industries and median age groups.  They are predicting that 18% of US workers (baby boomers) are expected to retire within the next 5 years.

Well, I for one will say no to full retirement.    They will have to pull me from my dual screen computers, iPad, and smartphone in all my glory, kicking and screaming if anyone thinks I'm ready to give up when I'm having so much fun.   I love what I do for a living and  clever enough to create a virtual company where we can work anywhere in the world.   Who would give up sitting in a little cafe in Paris, or a farm house in Tuscany with a Cappaccino and an ultrabook at 6am for some chit chat with clients and access to all my tools?    I've worked while sailing through the Baltics, in the land of the midnight sun,  while looking out my balcony window and marveling a sunset at 11:45pm.   Our generation is the first that has managed this kind of freedom from the desk.. and I plan on enjoy it.

I know many others that aren't considering a full retirement either. They have wisdom and strength, and are willing to share what they know to help others just starting out, a pay it forward mobilization at its best.  We are job creators, and mentors, and although we enjoy the idea of retirement some day, we don't necessarily need that to be a full time endeavor.

What about you?
