  • Fame & Fortune Q&A

    Bankrate: You're 50 years old now and returning to skating. Do you ever sit back and think you are financially stable and don't have to go out there and prove yourself anymore?

    Scott Hamilton: I could do that. It just depends on lifestyle. We all choose how we're going to live, and I think you can always do more. But I feel I need to set an example for my kids. I need to work. I need to show them a work ethic. I need to be healthy for them. I'm at an age now where I could be building my finances and investments toward retirement, but I kind of retired for five years. Skating and the industry have changed and the whole business model has gone completely upside down. But I've realized that throughout my life when my health has been challenged, skating has given me that health. So I need to be on the ice.

  • Lesson learned: You can choose to work for many reasons.
