Granted, I lost a lot of money upon the bursting of the tech bubble, and lost more during the last stock market collapse. However, I am "retired" so to speak, but chose to continue working on a part-time basis. I own my own business and work when the need arises. Thank goodness, I am considered an expert in my field, so my hourly rate is quite comfortable. Hopefully, I can continue doing this for at least 10 more years, pocketing (saving) my SS and living on my part-time work plus additional income from a mortgage which I hold on a home in FL.
