    Default en lo mío

    Hola!

    ¿Qué significa "en lo mío" en esta frase?

    "Yo siempre trabajaba guardando para el día de mañana, porque en lo mío lo peor que te puede ocurrir es llegar a vieja sin nada por delante y nada por detrás".

    Muchas gracias!

    "as far as I'm concerned"?

    sorry It's a she.

    Forgive me for intruding, I wish to submit another option.

    In my opinion, she's talking about her craft and about how the nature of her job doesn't allow a stable income or an opportunity to have some kind of pension, the most she can hope for is to put away a little cash for rainy days.
    The option I submit is: "en lo mio" = "in my line of work / in this line of work"

    Good Luck

    Yes, "en lo mío" refers to "in my craft / in my profession / in my line of work". with "en" we suppose the person is a regular. "Lo mío" may refer to one among many activities -the favorite one, the one that person is gifted to- : "Trabajo de mesero pero lo mío es la actuación".
