Hi, I’m an already retired and financially independent guy who is living the side gigging life while all my former colleagues are still in the corporate 9 to 5. I’m not looking to monetize the blog because I am past needing another nickel. So why be in this space? That is a fair question. Simply because I love reading posts about the communities of FI, FIRE, Retirement, Side Gigging, Investing, GeoArbitrage, Volunteering, Marriage, Careeer Development, Running, Tennis, and all things outdoors. I know I have a lot to say, time will tell if anyone stops by to listen. If you frequent these communities you’ll see me commenting as Steveark or sometimes as Steve from Arkansas. And thanks to you for doing just that!
