I get asked this question frequently – “When are you going to retire?”

Why do people ask me this? I don’t get it. I do online marketing because its fun. I love it. Why would I ever stop?

I stopped doing what I was doing at IBM because it sucked the soul out of me. If you had asked me when I was going to retire back then, I would have answered “I can’t afford to retire, as much as I would want to quit right now.” Yet back then nobody asked me when I was planning to retire – Why didn’t anyone ask me?

Now that things are different and I really like what I’m doing…  Why the question? Pretty ironic.
