Hi, I am Thomas from Nashville TN

Retired from Air Force at age 47 after 28 years of service. My goal is to live my retirement dream as a personal development coach, speaker, and trainer.

That sounds more like you are planning to work three jobs than retiring.

Congrats, and sincere thanks for your service.

I've read, and I believe, that it's imperative 'to have something to retire to' and not just something to retire from. Sounds like you're right on track for a successful retirement, I know we all hope so.
