Working for a Life... Not a Living!
How people who refuse to retire are changing 55+ communities.

Nancy Gunning, the single, fifty something President of Chesapeake Resources reflected on her future, “I came from a humble background and thought that I would have to work till I dropped dead. Now I have a choice. I know I’m going to do something, but I just don’t know what I want to do when I grow up.” In the next five years she plans to leave her current job, but she’s not thinking “retirement”. She sees a future full of opportunity, meaningful work, flexibility, travel and a spacious no maintenance condo. The last place she wants to be is in a community with “old people sitting around.”
