Just so everyone understands, I’m not planning to move to Mérida so I can retire early. I’ve only been working for 26 years, and I should be considered what’s called “mid-career.” But it’s got to be freelance work or some sort of entrepreneurial venture.
For now, I’m still working for a huge publishing corporation. Last week, our company had a “town hall” meeting in which we see how badly our financial situation is. It’s been rough. And the areas of our company that are showing hope and progress, well, those are other departments. One ray of hope: the writing and design work that I do is commonly offered on a freelance basis, and something I’ve done “on the side” for years.
