Hello Encore Hustlers
I love stories about people who continue working for decades after what most of us consider retirement age. Check out this story about a Camden, New Jersey oil and grease salesman. He is 95 years old and has been selling for 61 years. When he turned 90 his previous employer let him go saying he was too old. He then turned around and started working for another commercial lubricant company, taking 130 of his customers with him. His salesbook now has over 240 customers.
From his interview it is clear that he still loves his work but he is still fully engaged with life. When he is not meeting customers he enjoys travel and outdoor activities like riding his ATV or target shooting.
I wonder if he would have the same vigor if he had been forced to retire?
