I'm looking at multiple streams of income instead of just one. Some examples are teaching, Internet marketing, programming side jobs, and investments. Some of these I'm beginning to move into now. I consider this time of my life as a time of making extra money, not money I deserve so I can compete with the Jones'.

Too many times I've seen companies layoff IT staff and people over 50 rarely got a job. They ended up working at the hardware store or as a security guard. I will say that if one really wants to work IT after losing a job in their 50's is to get a government job. Government HR departments look for people that might be overlooked because of age, appearance, or lifestyle. They do this so no one blinks an eye when they hire and promote their friends and relatives.
