This week I continue my “Real Retirement Stories” series by interviewing my friend Paul. He began his career at GM the week after graduating high school. He attended what is now called Kettering University, a GM co-op program that was highly competitive. Less than half of his class made it through. As an engineer, he started in operations, moved to assembly, and then landed his dream job with the team that built the Corvette. He loved every minute of his 40-year career and felt thankful to have found it. My uncle Burt used to say, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” Paul agrees!
Paul and I both love cars and finding wisdom in the unexpected places. Tune in to hear how his career, view of money and retirement evolved as life played out in unexpected ways.
It’s always good to end on a good note, and Paul is someone that did just that!
