Retiring sounds like fun!

Hi friends of the forum, my name's Razor Dan. I'm a salesman from Ohio, and there's nothing I'd rather do than sit back and fish all day.

Welcome Razor Dan. Always wondered what it was like to be a salesman. Fishing does sound better though.

Yep, fishing is great. Just returned from a week on the White River in Arkansas.
Beautiful country.

Welcome to the forum!

I was a salesman once. On the application for my next job to the question "Have you ever been fired or asked to leave a position? If yes, explain."

I wrote "While I have many talents, sales is not one of them".

Can you make a living combining fishing and sales skills?

Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody

Being a salesman isn't so bad, on a good day. But on a bad day it can be the worst job in the world.

Really i just do fishing recreationally. Its a new hobby, but one that Im hoping to be able to get out and do much more.

my plan is...wow, well, i wish I had a better one, but so far it's to save like mad and hope in 10-15 years I can go ahead and retire. What I need to do is look into something like an index or mutual fund, you know?

Walt34, that's a good joke and i may have to borrow it one day.

One day maybe I'll be able to combine fishing and sales skills, once I get very good at it. That would be the life, huh?

But again, thank you everybody for the warm welcome, and lets hope I can contribute something awesome to you guys
