About

My name is Karen Paris. I have been working since I was 21 old years old. I have worked for the federal government, been an entrepreneur, worked in private industry, non-profits and educational institutions. I have even worked for a few years as a “stay at home” mom. Yes, that’s a job. Now that I am contemplating the big jump into retirement, wanted to know what my options are. Luckily, I know many people who have already begun the journey. I can’t wait to share their stories and learn from them. I hope you enjoy meeting these amazing individuals and enjoy the stories they have to share.

What does retirement look like to you?

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

Mark Twain

You don’t stop laughing when you grow old, You grow old when you stop laughing.

George Bernard Shaw

Retirement is not the end of the road. It is the beginning of the open highway.
