Greetings From a 50 YO Gym Rat

WOW ! Been around 50 years now,kinda blows me away, certainly do not feel it. Sure all of you know it seemed to go by in a flash.
For the last 22 years I have always found a niche I could fill to produce income. They have all been rewarding,some in more ways than financial,but my independence and freedom has always meant more to me than anything. Could never bring myself to sell my soul to Corporate America to make a living. Only problem with retirement! But I WILL find a way,I always do. Due to circumstances from divorce though I have accumulated nothing,zip,zero nada! Still living check to check essentially.Really not too concerned because I know I will get what I need and want,I always do.
Been divorced 22 years,have three offspring,two boys one girl,28,25,23,all in California.
The baby,my daughter is a junior at Cal-Berkeley,poli-sci major,the two boys are both doing their own thing as filling niches to create income.
Growing up on a farm put me to work at 6 driving a tractor to rake hay and plow the fields along with my dad and grandad to make a living.thus EVERY summer of my life basically has been spent working.(to this day I HATE working all summer)
Currently am spending loads of time researching ways to make a living on the web through sales and marketing,MLM,info ,many, many options I am finding. Refuse to give up my independence and forget SS,as far as I am concerned that is a not even an option. But the way out is close,it is so close now I can taste it.
No fear for myself financially,no fear that being employed by someone like Wal-Mart or Mickey D's will be required. More afraid of our zero option for pres than anything.
Here though to learn and share and hopefully receive input from those care to share.
But I know in my heart, the way to financial stability and freedom for me will be found on the internet.

Anything you can conceive and believe,you can achieve!
