What a pile of elitist cack!
The public school network, the right Uni, funny handshakes, being raised on the playing fields of Eton and then sodomised in the showers afterwards counts for nothing out here.

Will that satisfy them for long.

How do you class retirement then when your connected to a real estate business or is that just a hobby.

I retire every Friday, I then come out of retirement on Mondays.

You gotta give it to Lee8. He doesn't sit on the fence! It must that Swiss Finishing/Diplomatic school he went to maybe...

Have you suspended RM... cos I really want to have a debate about Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and his chickens!!!

I don`t do Diplomacy, too much thought required.

I hope I`ll be able to retire at your age and enjoy G&T`s in the sun when i retire though, i`d let you know Mitzy, but you`ll have checked out of planet earth by then.

Eh up lad! (I am not Northern but something just happened there.. sorry) there is nothing wrong with a gentleman of a certain age enjoying himself and chilling, but keeping 'his hand in'! I hope that doesn't sound deviant!

You young 'whipper snappers'... I dunno eh!

I wish you a long and happy retirement then.

Now I need to lay down, my head hurts, and you may start to like me.

Ive been here 13 years, moved out with young kids who are now too big for their boots, and have worked doing all sorts but can honestly say I have never once been out of work. Mainly self employed with the odd stints of gainful employment.

Staying power and an absolute belief in yourself is the main ingredient I would say. Patience and time secondary and the ability to roll your sleeves up and get stuck into whatever you need to do.

I know about the BNI and was invited to the Marbella chapter. I went and did find it interesting but couldnt commit to the weekly 7am meets as I work too hard!! It seemed a good idea and its only an 'official' networking scenario. The peeps were nice and I may take it up in the future but I tend to prefer to spend my time with the family or doing what I want to do.

Anyone coming over I would always encourage to try it - its not for everyone and dont think you can get help and benefits!!!

You oculd plan for years but whats the point - you only live once!!

Own your own company for 12 years, work 14 hour days, take only two weeks holiday a year, get regularly called out in the middle of the night, miss a lot of your kid growing up, stress yourself to the max ........ its easy ...... as the saying goes the harder you work the luckier you get.
