Retirement Yenta loves to learn new things…why, just this week, RY was brushing up her Español! Your dear Yenta wants to remind her estimados programas de lectura (dear Readers) that new skills are always high value opportunities just waiting to be unlocked like a new level on Angry Birds! The more fundamental skill sets you have, the more valuable you will be in your retirement. This little Yenta is dreaming of a day in full Retirement where she can make a buck or two (while not on the beach) throwing together some PowerPoint slides for a former colleague…or doing a little Politicking for Business (RY’s term for sales) to help out an old friend. It certainly beats becoming a Walmart Greeter!
Let’s face it, dearest Readers, the world is changing and more and more people are acquiring “Retirement Jobs” to keep their minds active…and an extra buck or two coming in. The more diverse your portfolio of skills, the more varied and marketable your retired self will be. PLUS, these skills will come in handy when sitting on the Board of your favorite charity!
