LAST CALL: Early retirement in its truest form

The economic downturn has made many of the dot-com players afraid

to retire early, but one such character has finally bitten the bullet

and cashed in his chips.

A press release informs PRWeek that Ruchit Shah, founder of, an e-business ad agency with sales of dollars 1.5 million

in 2000, has decided to retire from the up-and-down business world.

Shah is 17, and like other blue-chip retirees who plan their days of

golf and long days of 'who's got your nose?' with grandchildren, Shah

has his own dreams to pursue. He will join a high school theater

production of To Kill A Mocking-bird. He says the play will give him a

chance to 'take a breather and enjoy the beauties of life.'

Like many retirees who take on the title 'consultant,' Shah will remain

on board as chief visionary officer.

However, one question the press release didn't answer: is youth still

wasted on the young, or is that phrase as old-fashioned as retiring at

age 65?
