I have been in business for the last twenty years, and have an import and distribution company. We mainly deal in womens accessories, that we design, manufacture and distribute to big box retailers like Walmart, Sams club, BJ's wholsale, Costco, JC Penny, Sears, Kmart etc. Thinking about selling and retiring in the nex few years, and looking at different strategies to generate income during retirement.
I am a software developer who has worked for the telecommunications and national defense industries over the last 15 years. My obesession with investing began as a result of my horror at discovering how much my money my parents had lost over the last 10 years by following the standard advice given by "financial professionals". I am determined to make sure my parents can soon retire in style and I am able to follow them.
