What are you doing in terms of health insurance, retirement, later working years, etc. (depending on your locale of course)?

I have a few friends who did some less-than-legal work in the cannabis industry for years, and are now in their mid 40s and realized they haven't contributed enough to retirement, and have had a tough time getting 'real' jobs now that they want to go legit. It's an unfortunate circumstance.

Thanks for the response! Good to hear. The social programs we have here in the States aren’t nearly as universal, especially if you’re on the legal fringes - let alone 100% legitimate things as an independent business person. I have a friend who’s a novelist and she constantly struggles with maintaining reasonable health insurance, let alone even thinking of retirement.

Client networking. Duh. While you have an independent job - you meet plenty of new people all the time!
