Back when I was a laboring man, I always liked to take my getaways in Florida, however the sand and the surf, and heat and humidity, it was all a refreshing change of pace from the dreary chilly northern states, and all the while, as I relaxed and had fun on getaway, I was also doing some research for the future.
I went to a bizarre coastal neighborhood every time, and easily kept notes on the things I liked and didn’t like.
After 20 years I had 15 bizarre sets of notes about bizarre sites, and I used my research to decide that Cocoa Beach was where I wanted to retire. Cocoa checked off a lot of boxes for me, in terms of affordable housing, cost of residing, and the strength of their Heating plus A/C market. After spending 30 years as a professional Heating plus A/C tech I had amassed a healthy savings account but was far from being rich, then living in a seaside paradise like Cocoa Beach would mean I might still have to labor part-time to make ends meet. The demand for professional Heating plus A/C labor in and around the Cocoa Beach area is unquestionably strong, so I knew I could find extra gigs whenever I needed them. It did not take long for me to settle down and believe right at house in Cocoa Beach, and soon after I landed my first freelance gig. I am doing side labor around the retirement community for the largest Heating plus A/C supplier in the Cocoa Beach area, and for being in my golden years, my future looks bright.
