Retired at 56. What could possibly go wrong

I was separated from T-Mobile on December 4th, 2024, after 27 years.

It was tragic but not unexpected, as I had just helped complete a major layoff, with over 5,000 employees receiving their notification. The question then became. What now?

Get busy finding another job? Take some time off and enjoy some travel or pull back and early retire.

We had been preparing for this day for many years and have decided to take early retirement for a spin. I have more than 20 years of planning for this moment and feel we have a good plan for retirement. That does not mean that we are missing fears. In this video I address what could go wrong and the many concerns I have about early retirement.

The good news is that if I am wrong the plan is simple. Go back to work!

In the meantime, we are going to enjoy traveling, dreaming and putting years of planning into practice. It is my hope that through this blog and the videos that you will learn from us. Learn what we planned that has gone wrong and what has gone right.

It is going to be a great experiment.
