We wrote Retire Bizzi which was 101 stories about people who had retired and not liked it or retired and wanted something else to do (eg: profitable hobby/home based business)..

One of the people we met had a ‘Babysitting Business’ (or he more formally called it ‘Locum Management)…he had retired and then was asked by an acquaintance to look after various parts of his friend’s business when the friend was away or busy.

His wife became part of the team too.
Because of their age, (experience, wisdom, skills) they became highly sought after. Task could be small (mail/correspondence) or, as Mr said, ‘in with boots and all’).

The business became successful….so successful they had to say, ‘no’ to work so that they could take a break.
