I’m a Baby boomer. I’m one of over 68,000,000 million Baby boomers born between 1946 and 1964. I was born in 1957.
Baby boomers control over 80% of personal financial assets and more than half of all consumer spending. We buy 77% of all prescription drugs, 61% of over-the-counter drugs, and 80% of all leisure travel.
And……according to the 2011 Associated Press and LifeGoesStrong.com surveys:
- 60% lost value in investments because of the economic crisis
- 42% are delaying retirement
- 25% claim they’ll never retire (currently still working)
As a Baby boomer myself I can relate to each of the above. My wife and I lost just about everything during the financial crisis of 2008.
Retirement is a pipe dream. Mostly because I’m self employed and really have no reason to retire. I work from home and truly enjoy what I do.
The Lovely Wife and I moved into SoliVita, an over 55 active adult community in mid 2010. Our last house was way too big and keeping up with it was becoming a burden. So we downsized. We moved to one of Florida’s World Class Active Adult Communities, SoliVita.
Making the decision to downsize and move into a Florida over 55 active adult community was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Since moving here our lives have changed for the better.
We get more exercise, eat better and relax more. We spend more time outside enjoying all of the amenities in SoliVita.
At age 55 we are in the best shape of our lives.
Getting old does not have to suck. It can truly be the best time of your life.
