My answer to How old were you when your life was at its best? And how old are you now?
Answer by Ken Larson:
Life is at its best at time now. I am 71 years old.
As I got well 11 years ago, I realized part of my recovery required getting as far away from bureaucratic settings and authority as possible. I found over the years with military service in the war zone and 35 years of defense corporations dealing with Washington DC that my tolerance level for it was 0 at age 60.
I retired to a beautiful view of the Vermilion River in Minnesota, a great little small town I enjoy, fishing, photography, writing, and intellectually stimulating non-profit volunteer work in an office supplied by the county at no cost so I can help small business with my non-profit foundation.
I have served over 7000 clients through the non-profit organizations SCORE and Micro Mentor as well as many local businesses and small enterprises in every state in the union and its territories.
I have American clients in several foreign countries. Roughly 30 % of my client base is veterans.
In short, I reinvented myself in retirement and I am enjoying it very much.
