This is a guest post by Nancy Collamer, M.S., a career coach, speaker and author of the upcoming book  Second-Act Careers: 50+ Ways to Profit from Your Passions During Retirement (Ten Speed Press, Berkeley, CA, Jan 2013). Nancy is an expert on how to create income without a 9-5 job, and her advice has been featured in numerous national media outlets.

Check it out and read more about her journey.
