I am a woman who has just retired after working forever. I spent the last 30 years working for a European motion picture producer as his exec assistant for 8 years. During those years I read and evaluated scripts, met many famous people,and learned how to produce a motion picture. I DIDN't HAVe the guts to take my knowledge and go out and conquer the world. Unfortunately because of a terrible car accident our office was closed and I was recruited by the least likely profession I would have ever on my own pursued (investment banking). I needed to earn a living as I had been divorced and left in a very bad financial situation with 2 daughters still needing my help. I took the job working for one of the most difficult man imaginable and spent the next j20 years proving how remarkable I am because I could work for this person. I'm being sarcastic, but it is the truth. I am now a free woman trying to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life. Being retired was always something I feared. I write and have been trying to sell my novel which is a woman's book and one that anyone who has read it has really liked.
