Let's face it, as we get older and job circumstances change as they often do, we're faced with the challenge of what to do next. Most of us aren't prepared to hang our hat, give up the ghost or park our tenny's and spend the remainder of our working years parked on the porch wondering what we could have done differently.

Many of us have had incredible lives full of adventure, trauma, enlightenment, hard lessons and a myriad of other experiences that we could share. While growing up I was fascinated by the stories my grandfather would tell me about his home and childhood in Germany. I was mesmerized by some of the stories told to me by older clients when I worked as a Senior Protective Aid. I remember one client in particular who had been married to the same woman for 57 years and they lived in the same house for 53 of those. He was blind when I met him but he would sit on the porch and tell me stories about when he was the conductor for an all-female orchestra. They traveled all over the globe and when he retired from that he became an architectural engineering consultant and helped design and build bridges and dams all over the United States.

Do you have amazing stories to tell? Have you regaled friends and family about experiences you've had and lessons you've learned along the way? If that's the case, being a freelance writer may just be your thing and you can still sit on the porch without wondering if you could have done something differently.

There are many magazines that will pay writers for great content. I'm providing a link for those interested to peruse to see if this is an opportunity that might be just the thing for you!
