Millionaire for Millionaire, 47 for 47, No 2 Pre-Retirees Think Alike. I’m in Awe.

Question: What happens when we remove money and age from the retirement equation?

It’s [completely] serendipitous.

I met my management accounting prof last week. We aren’t supposed to. I walked past my alma mater, desperate for an iced drink, and Prof Huang happened to be there.

And we spoke.

He shared a lot.

And then, I bumped into my ex-colleague yesterday while commuting to a client’s office.

With a stroke of luck, as if we were meant to catch up, his new office was near the same corner of the street I was heading to. I didn’t know. The last we spoke [based on my What’s app] was 5 years ago.

And we conversed heartily.

The first thing that he asked me was about retirement

We were beyond hi’s and hello’s.

I felt that he was being abrupt at the beginning. I got over it rather quickly. He is not my client. Formalities are secondary outside of the World of Sales.

Kunda started his new job 4 weeks ago.
