I’m 44. I took off a few years (24) to raise my children. “My childhood dream” Now I’m retired.
Retired only because returning to the work force at the age of 44 in entry level positions with children for managers was not how I expected to spend my adult years. It’s hard when you were the boss of your own company (our home) then to go back to work and need permission to pee….. Do I sound bitter, sorry.
I am enrolled in the University and I’m taking art courses. (All of them directed towards advertising, yuck…) except the one painting class where the professor is from the old school and has lots to teach.
What I really want to do is develop a company that is focused on older people either returning to work or changing careers. A place where they can all come together and offer their talents directed towards a common goal. (I wish I had paid more attention in business class)
So now I look at lots of art and try to improve my skills. 8 years ago
