Checking In With Alan Lastufka and Early Retirement
Nicole Dieker

Early retirement sounds nice, though I’d classify Mr. Lastufka’s situation as more early semi-retirement since it sounds like he’s still doing freelance gigs, writing books, etc. Actually, that lifestyle sounds better to be than full erly retirement. Work, but only when you choose and on what you choose. A bit of work would help fill time and build new skills, provide extra income and a sense of accomplishment, and give an early semi-retiree something to talk about when other people are discussing their new work projects.
