I have been doing my “homework” and preparing for some Lonnie deals within the next month or so. In April, I will be 50 years old. I spent 15 years in the Army and after the “down-sizing” of 1992, left the service. For a year, the employment odds at home were not in my favor. My current job of one year is full time with the postal service as a custodian. Talk about a thankless and dead end job…but it is just that…a job. One of my custodial co-workers shared his copy of Lonnie’s DOW with me. He is retired Air Force been custodial with the postal service since 1987. He is retiring again…this time from the postal service to move to Florida and do some Lonnie deals. Other folks our ages plan for 8-10 years before that will retire because a lot of them cannot afford to do so. On my breaks and lunch periods, I am reading and researching about mobile home insurance, lot rents, taxes and legalities. I have a plan and am putting myself into position to get it going because it is something I HAVE to do to get beyond the gold watch mentality that surrounds me daily. We have a lot of good fishing in Virginia and, thanks to Lonnie, I have reserved a spot on the bank. I want the challenge, experience, fun and of, course, some money from doing this and doing it right. So, whatever your reasons and motivations for taking that step or changing your lives…you put what you got to work for yourself.
