Retirement Planning Primer

Retirement Income Guide

If you’re in your fifties or sixties, and are just now getting serious about your retirement planning, I know what you’re going through.

Sure, it would be great if you had a secure $10,000 a month income lined up or $10 million bucks (of secure investments) in your retirement account…

But let’s face reality; the majority of folks have basically little more than a piddling Social Security check coming their way when they retire.

Way too many people are reaching retirement age and
discovering that they cannot afford to retire and
maintain their standard of living because of
insufficient sources of (retirement) income.

I faced this same predicament when I hit retirement age and saw that my Social Security check was going to be a measly $884 per month.

My wife and I spend more than that on groceries every month!

After a period of time soul-searching and trying to figure out what I was going to do, I came to the realization that I only had a few options:

1. Keep on working until I keeled over dead.

2. Cut up my credit cards, cut my living expenses to the bone, pinch pennies, eat noodles and don’t plan on taking any trips or vacations.

3. Or I could find a way to generate more income on a part-time basis and continue living the lifestyle my wife and I are accustomed to.

I figured I’d rather be dead now than keep on working until I died…

(And I don’t think you want to be working when you’re 65, 70, or 75, and you sure don’t want your spouse to have to work either!)

… and I sure didn’t want to cut back on our living expenses, because in my mind we were already living as modest a lifestyle as I wanted us to live.

In fact, I wanted to take more vacations, not fewer.

 (And you hear all these horror stories about retirees going without their medications, and not having enough food to eat, and freezing to death in the winter because they can’t afford to heat their homes…)

So, even though I was ready to spend the rest of my days on the beach sipping Pina coladas, it was obvious to me that I first needed to invest a little time into finding ways to increase our income so that our lifestyle (standard of living) did not have to take a major hit and go way down.

So I did what you may be thinking about doing, I started reading everything I could find on retirement living and expenses, making extra money, investments, working from home and so on.

So now, I’ve put a summary of what I came up with in a little booklet and PDF that I’m giving away for free to anyone that may have a similar interest.

What I’ve put in this booklet is what I’ve learned so far, and the ideas that I feel like will create a quality retirement lifestyle for my family.

You can get a FREE copy by simply putting your first name and email address in the form and you will get the free special report immediately by email.

And, if you want the report in the actual physical real-paper booklet, the email you get will tell you how to get it for free as well.

And don’t worry, I’m not going to flood your email with pitches and hound you until you buy something.

Sure, I do have a book that I’m promoting, but I will never try to talk you or anyone else into buying it because quite frankly, I do not want the hassle of refunding your money if you’re not interested.

So, just click on the link below, and it will take you over to another page on this same website and you can see a picture of the booklet, and the form to put your information in for the FREE report delivered to your email box immediately..

And please feel free to contact me after you’ve read the free report if you have any questions or comments.

Creating a Work at Home Income for Retirees

Creating a Work at Home Income for Retirees

Gone are the days when people went to school, secured a career and retired with a complimentary watch to live out their golden years.

The American dream has changed – and so has the retirement age, continually going up year after year.

But many companies still look to hire younger workers who can be with the company for years. Or they offer incentive packages to get older workers to step down.

The average age for retirement in the United States right now is 67 – and just a decade ago is was 63. Officially, it’s usually 65 when men and women retire, but for many reasons, this just won’t work for some people these days. Continue reading

How to Be Relaxed at Selling

How to Be Relaxed at “Selling”

Recognize reality and act accordingly.

Not everyone needs or wants your product.

Your product is not for everyone.

Relax, there is no reason to stress.

The are over 6 BILLION people on this planet.

There is an endless supply of wants and needs.

You just need to get your product in front of enough people.

The RIGHT people.

Money from Nothing

“Money from Nothing…”

Hailey cajun-cooking-is-funNeed to make some extra income?

Who doesn’t these days?

Back in 2008, I was looking for a way to make some extra income to help pay off our debts and start creating some retirement income, because we had no retirement plan and next to nothing in savings.

I had been hearing about “blogging”, but I didn’t really know what it was or how to do it. Someone explained to me that it was nothing more than keeping a log or journal online.

In fact, “blog” is short for “web log”.

Well, I didn’t have any idea what I could possibly write about that anyone would be interested in, but I did want to get started in case something came of these things called “blogs”.

For lack of coming up with anything else, one Saturday when my wife and I were talking about what to make for supper, I had a brainstorm – I would make a blog about what we cooked for supper every Saturday night!

Without even owning a video camera, just using my wife’s digital camera, I decided to start videoing my wife cooking our Saturday night supper. (Now we just use our cell phone.)

With NO investment… Continue reading

The Best Way to Make More Money

The best way to make more money is by selling something.

You could sell your time (a job), a product of some sort, or information of some sort.

So what should you sell?

There is more money in selling products than in selling hours.

And there is more money in selling ideas than in selling products.

So, sell IDEAS, not stuff.
