Senior Jobs After Retirement

help for seniors to work at homey

Senior jobs after retirement – what do you want?

I read and write at a few sites with a significant senior age content and I see much concern about senior jobs after retirement.

I am happy for the many who try to earn a few dollars writing blogs for money, and do not seem to have any real challenge surviving – keeping a roof over their head, or eating. The basics. But they are not in the majority group of people  over 65.

Most seniors are not nearly that comfortable or secure. Is there an option to work at home and increase your ss income?

Notably, veterans and disabled veterans, and the general population of the disabled, are also struggling.

“I want to start a small website business”.

If this is you, keep reading because I have found a solution to stress about low income without going back to the nine-to-five.

If you’re ready to roll with some free training just go to it now!

OK, I can’t resist it – here’s a flash back to the film “Nine To Five”. I really love the inclusion of the Disney-type animated characters because when I worked corporate, most days, I felt like I was somewhere between a cartoon and a nightmare. But,  gotta laugh now.

If you would have to be dragged back there screaming and kicking, keep reading for a great solution to prevent YOU from hiring on to one of the typical senior jobs after retirement.

Jobs For Senior Citizens Over 65 – Choices?

A few years ago when my son still lived with me and we used to go to Frys together, either for him to help me buy the computer  accessories I needed, or for me to pay for whatever he needed, he would often seek out one particular man on the sales floor.

Turns out that this older silver-haired rep on the floor (read, lowly paid clerk) was retired from senior working the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena California! He and my tech-educated son would go off into conversations about computer parts and functions in which I could not hope to participate.

  • And I wondered why he was employed there.
  • Was he retired early before a pension kicked in?
  • Was he bored out of his mind after working in such an exciting environment?
  • Did divorce rob him of half his retirement income?
  • Did a spousal death with attendant medical bills drain his savings?

All those things can happen to any of us. There are many reasons people will be looking for work in their retirement years. Many financial decisions made within a family aren’t really financial, but they are emotional decisions that involve money.

I can’t help but notice that a lot of employees in retail stores such as:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Best Buy
  • Frys
  • Kohls
  • Walgreens…

Are seniors, or certainly folks over 50. And, truly I wonder about them.

  • Is the lady rearranging some lingerie a laid off electrical engineer?
  • Is the man stocking heavy vacuum cleaner boxes on high shelves a bank executive who was retired early?
  • Is the child-like person putting purses back on the shelves a teen who might have been in university if her parents hadn’t been laid off?

None of these retail peeps are highly paid. In fact, I’m shocked at what’s considered decent pay these days.

According to Glass Door dot com, a manager for a GNC vitamin Mall store (way over-priced nutritional supplements) gets $13.44 an hour!

A manager! I guess anyone else gets minimum wage?

In a Sprint store, a manager might make $44,000.00 a year. That’s barely enough for single adults in a coastal city to take care of themselves adequately (safe housing, health care, not counting dentistry).  And for a married person breadwinner who is trying to stay in their home? Appalling.

All of these people could be making as much money affiliate marketing (click on that link for a review of a training system)  for a similar store! With web sites they make on line. senior jobs after retirement

In other words, they would have a work from home job, bringing in the income they need, by helping others find the products they want to purchase online.

Senior jobs after retirement – earn from home.

  • Or from your RV as you travel
  • Or from your country cottage.
  • From anywhere you can connect to the internet.

For example, Amazon affiliate marketing is a venue for earning income from home. Most large retailers have a program where website owners can make commissions by referring buyers to their sites.

The easiest way to find out if this is something for you, is to build a couple of web sites, learn the process step by step, and find out how affiliate marketing is done.

Get Started Now – Work At Home After Retirement

I have summarized the process in my article Getting Started, and illustrate there exactly what you have access to at no cost to you.

Access to real training is a rare offer! You’ll have classrooms to peruse and you’ll see hundreds of questions and answers about the processes of setting up a site.

When Should You Start Saving Retirement Money?

when should you start saving retirement money

When should you start saving retirement money can be a depressing issue, if you haven’t been putting away even a small amount starting at college age.

You have noticed, while reading some articles about investing, the tried and true method is to get a few decades lined up for your returns.

Suzie Orman, one of the most prolific writers to address the “ordinary people” situations, advises to just do your best.

If you haven’t even started, and you’re over 50 or over 60, then just start now!

Realize You Can Do Your Best Now

 

I just scanned a whole page of investment books at Amazon. You can CLICK HERE to see those. I haven’t read them all but will examine the reviews and choose from that list before the day is over.

And I need to become more aware of these possiblities now.  Do you?

A few years ago I read a book about how to get wealthy and keep your wealth. Point number one was to start investing about $5.00 a week, when you’re about twenty years old, and when you retire at age 65, you will have 1.5 million dollars saved.

If you’re a senior, you probably registered quickly that to skip the Latte, and make your coffee at home, saves twenty-five dollars a week.

One hundred dollars a month!

Great advice, if you’re twenty years old, to invest that amount. But what about us?

This is a blog for seniors or the disabled who want to, or must work at home. Most of us don’t have forty-five to sixty-five years of investment return time before us.

 

make money with surveys

 

So we’re going to become more aware of how to do our best, right?

One oldie-goldie method of saving is to take ten percent of all income and save that.

If you’re downsizing and de-clutteruing, save everything from your garage sale or other means of getting in a little money for used goods.

Learn about investing, not my area of expertise.

In fact, learning new things is good for your senior brain, which can always do more!

The simple fact that you are aware of your situation means that you are already tracking a solution.

 

You Saw That Clickable Link Up There

 

I am not trying to sell you books on this post, but that link up there goes to Amazon.

Click on it to examine the possibilities of investing.

If a reader did come across this post looking for books, and they then bought one after clicking that link, I would get a commission on that sale.

I would also get a commission from anything else they bought during that shopping trip to Amazon. That link is an affiliate link.

Do you ever go to Amazon for one item and then remember you need a few more things? Do you check the daily deals? Millions of shoppers do.

Target, Home Depot, and Walmart customers do too. Can you see where I’m going with this?

I put that link there because –

one approach to adding to your not-enough retirement income is to start a marketing blog.

 

shop online words

 

Imagine that in a few months, your blog, with a hundred posts on it, will attract buyers who are happy to see those links. Information and links that will make their shopping faster and easier.

Not that you shouldn’t save and invest some of your savings, but blogging is an accessible back up plan for making some money on your own time and terms.

A marketing blog has a few features that puts it to the front of the line for starting a business.

Allow yourself to try out a ready-made blog building training system, won’t you? No cost upfront?

Read more about that – CLICK HERE.

Take A Week To Create Years Of Being Your Own Boss Online

CLICK HERE to go to your free one week business blog classes.

 

There is zero financial investment just to try out (unless you don’t have a computer or internet connection) because those are already in your budget right?

 

do not disturb sign

 

So back to your one week, when you’re going to hang the Do Not Disturb sign on the back of your chair, or pin to your couch, you can learn the following:

  • How to recognize a product to promote, whether on Amazon or elsewhere
  • How to choose a url, or blog address (myblog.com,net,or info, just examples)
  • Click where directed to put a blog base together (all code prepared for you, you won’t even see it)

I Understand This Is A Real Blog? Not A Trial Throw-Away?

 

Not one minute of your invested time will be wasted. The trial web sites offered use WordPress, a popular blogging platform, meaning coded foundation for site building.

Wealthy Affiliate, the training community you can access, provides their siterubix.com version on which you will build your business oriented blog.

After trial and error, and step by step guidance, you can then convert this to a dot.com (org, info, net, co). The real thing!

word genuine

You will spend $13.99 – $15.99 for that Domain Name Service.

The classes are videos, and easy to follow. You can also repeat them for your best comprehension, as necessary. Each class has a forum discussion, developing in real time, where you can get questions answered.

Your next financial investment might be $19 for another whole month of access to the classes. A month!

You can continue to learn the professional development your blog needs to attract online searchers to your articles and recommendations.

You can help people find the items they want to know about and buy, online.

 

Start Saving Now

 

It is getting harder every month to live well on a low income, especially in the coastal cities. Poorer people usually have pretty good strategies in place for countering high food prices and incomprehensible gas hikes.

Unfortunately the gas hikes result in the increase of most other goods to compensate for shipping costs.

If you were to grow sprouts in your kitchen, for your salad greens how much can you save? Two sprouting containers can be had for about ten dollars.

A couple of bags of organic sprouting mixes for salads is under twenty dollars, and will last a couple at least a year.

Sprouts also have concentrated nutrition in the form of enzymes that rejuvenate your body cells. There are two good reasons to try it!  (Enzymes are the most expensive form of food supplements.)

That’s just one example, and you may be knowledgeable about others.

Another might be to buy a used bread machine and make all your own bread. Mmm…That smell!

Here is an article I wrote about How Can Seniors Save Money. It gives you more household tips for spending less.

 

how can seniors save money

 

To recap:

  • Spend less with increased cognizance of how you spend
  • Save more – which means you’ll get more sense of security
  • Get a back up plan for retirement years – know you have some control

 

How To Turn A Hobby Into A Home Business (jump-start some ideas, CLICK on it)

 

If you’re a couple, consider your individual strengths and weaknesses that you bring to blogging. Maybe one of you is good at writing out ideas and the other is a good editor.

Any kind of trusted partnership equals more power!

Maybe one of you will write all blog posts and the other will add images, polish the format and do all the post-publishing work.

Oh dear what’s that?

There are many tips for promoting your content which will be covered in your Wealthy Affiliate classes. You are never on your own!

A 24/7 worldwide community is at your disposal for getting help.

Creating a successful marketing blog may take six months to a year. It takes consistency and perseverance.

Think about how you will save money on:

  • Gas
  • Separate courses for each topic, either in a community college or online
  • Text books, paper, or printer toner for producing your own books

Consider how you have just invested some time in reading this article. I hope it inspires you to explore further as to when you should start saving retirement funds – or begin to create them.

Equal Pay Same Job

equal pay same job

Equal pay same job for women? Really? Where is that?

(Warning: this article is written in all sincerity but with humor and irony too. A little bit tongue-in-cheek. It is not meant to trigger intense political discourse.)

Why Women Deserve Equal Pay – Explained!

The current POTUS (President Of The United States) has stated today that women should receive an equal paycheck to the amounts paid to men, if they are doing the same work.

I recall in the early 1990’s reading a news article about how women were paid a sixty-nine cent “male” dollar. Today, April 12, 2016, news reports put it at a seventy-three cent dollar.

Wow! ‘SHE” got a four cent raise in about twenty years!

“You’ve Come A Long Way Baby!”equal pay same job

Remember those cigarette ads? The Eve ciggie, long and so slim (like women are supposed to be, like Barbie Dolls). In the pretty white and pastel packs?

Women in affiliate marketing on line don’t take that kind of pay cut. Women who are

  • Caucasian
  • Hispanic
  • African American
  • African
  • Asian
  • Middle Eastern
  • Native American
  • Multi racial…
  • Gay
  • Single
  • Old
  • Fat
  • Have big boobs/don’t have big boobs

…get paid the equal “male” dollar! How?

Blog Writing For Money Pays Commissions On Product Sales

The customer comes from a link on somebody’s (maybe your) web site. The retailers

  • Amazon
  • Target
  • Home Depot
  • Walmart
  • Clickbank
  • T J Maxx
  • Ebay…

…and the other several hundred don’t know what you look like! They only know your affiliate

name or nick name. There is no grueling Human Resources interview process to affect any bias toward you in the hiring procedures.

You don’t have to be like George Sand, Ms. Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin, 1804-1896, an author publishing in France in the 1800’s, female lover of the composer Frederic Chopin, and mother of two.

You don’t have to be like George Eliot, 1819-1889, the pen name of Mary Ann Evans, who wrote Middlemarch. She was an English poet and a journalist, as well as a novelist.

You don’t have to disguise yourself like Jennie Hodgers, Sarah Emma Edmonds, or Sarah Rosetta Wakeman, all of whom dressed like men and enlisted to fight in the American Civil War.

This isn’t a feminist rant. Not at all! This about being paid fairly.

Tell me, husbands and partners of the male gender, wouldn’t it have been great if your wife had brought home twenty-seven per cent more pay during those decades when you both worked? If she is Caucasian, that is.

If your wife is Hispanic, Asian, African American, African, Middle Eastern, Native American or multi racial – and if there were equal pay for equal work – according to today’s news, she could have brought home forty to eighty per cent more wages! (That is the extent to which she may have been unfairly paid).

Where can a senior female working after full retirement age make a masculine dollar?

A manly dollar! (I can just hear Richard Simmons saying that with a twinkle in his eye!)

I’ll tell you where! At Wealthy Affiliate University. There is no gender discrimination in earning commissions.

Life Is Not Fair

It is SO not fair that the financial institutions collapsed in 2008. So not fair that pensions vaporized, house loans were foreclosed on. So not fair that the ‘guv’ printed money to pay the wayward banks trillions instead of paying for your house or retirement fund losses.

Over 65 And Still Have To Work?

If so, play on an equal playing field. Put your time, energy and skills into building free websites and getting started in a Gender Equal job, a unique arena of the senior citizens job opportunities.

This doesn’t just apply to gender, but to racial profiles as well. That ‘male dollar’ doesn’t apply across the boards, as many know.

Why Women Deserve Equal Pay

If you’re a husband to a wife who is still with you in your retirement years, you don’t need any explanation.

If you’re a domestic partner who lucked out and found someone compatible to live with in your senior years, and you both need to work, aren’t you glad if she can get paid like a man?

equal pay same job

Equal Pay Equal Work Law

Writing blogs for money, becoming a Wealthy Affiliate, will get you equal pay! The making money on line activities don’t require an equal pay equal work law.

  • Equal opportunity
  • Equal training
  • Equal access to free giveaway websites

I feel like I should call the White House or something and say “you’re right!”…”Get on it!”…”Equal pay same job – Dude!”.

I’m not sure that call would go through lol.

But I hope I’m getting through to you, whatever your gender, class, or racial background.

The Giant Retailers need you! Oh, yes they do, or there wouldn’t be any affiliate marketing. And who else needs you too?

  • New Age Self Improvement authors
  • Compost experts
  • Pole dancing instructors
  • Organic gardening pros
  • Solar panel build-your-own designers
  • How to do ballet writers
  • How to get rid of warts, man-breasts, and toe nail fungus advice givers

That’s just the tip of the iceberg of the very broad “how to” ebook field!

But I’m A House Wife Who Has Never Worked! I Could Be A Web Site Marketer?

You bet you can! With your experience, you’re an expert in

  • Cleaning supplies
  • Window blinds
  • Organic bedding
  • Frozen foods
  • Cookware
  • Appliances
  • Sugar free snacks
  • On line pasture fed cheeses
  • Yoga mats
  • School supplies
  • Fair trade coffee
  • Adult coloring books
  • Water filters
  • Cell phones
  • Social Media
  • Parental Filters
  • Everything!

Running a household is like running a small business. You qualify! I would credit this expertise

to house husbands and single dads too.

Top Jobs – Retirees Over 65?

jobs over 65

Are you looking for the top jobs for retirees? Oh – you weren’t planning to be working after full retirement age?

You are in the company of millions! Millions of retired seniors who for decades,

  • Worked hard
  • Raised a family (or maybe didn’t)
  • Paid into a pension through the job, or some other type of investment savings
  • Paid off the house
  • Started your bucket list

But what really happened? Many bubbles burst in a harsh way because of financial greed and corruption. Pensions are gone, banks are gone, and for many, the house is gone too.

Over fifty per cent of seniors retiring now aren’t ready financially. Actually, they’re simply not retiring! (Some ideas to help that issue HERE).And they can’t all be consultants lol.

This is however quite a serious matter. Reinventing yourself is a dire necessity!working after full retirement age

What Are The Desired Jobs For Senior Citizens Over 65?

Most retiree wannabe’s, like yourself, have decades of experience and acquired knowledge. Whether you’re a professional with degrees or a clerical worker, you have an abundance of skills to draw from. Perhaps skills you have never realized you developed.

What Many Work From Home Seniors Want

  • Work that is not physically challenging
  • Work that gives them time to exercise in the way that most benefits them as an individual
  • Work that allows them to rest when they need to
  • Work that produces enough income for good food and quality medical care
  • Activity that is mentally invigorating – “you don’t use it you lose it”

Looking at a seniors’ job board at the Glass Door web site, I see

  • Ads for in home caregivers (must clean, lift, bathe, cook, and shop for another  senior or person with a disability)
  • Ads for caregivers in hospitals, assisted living and skilled care facilities
  • Ads for drivers to help seniors get around

All of these jobs bring in under $26,000 per year. Those are hard jobs! And while age discrimination is illegal in the employment screening process…need I say more?

Try A Better Job For Working After Full Retirement Age

What if you could combine all your previous training and experience and:

  • Stay at home and earn money
  • Enjoy your house
  • Enjoy more family time
  • Travel (and keep earning)
  • Remain independent of the nine-to-five grind
  • Create your own work schedule
  • Learn new skills at your own pace
  • Help other seniors create a satisfying lifestyle doing what you do
  • Pick up and go – whenever! – even if you still work everyday

Using your years of hard won skills and experience to create a happy life in your retirement years is very rewarding.

There are millions of seniors, baby boomers, who are not in the rocking chair on the front porch, the proverbial image of aging gracefully in days gone by. Seventy is the new fifty and many seventy-somethings are earning as well as those in their fifties, at the top of their game.

Life offers no guarantees. You have already proven that you don’t need any – you’ve come so far!

You have already proven that you are the source (on a social/human level) of your own success. You have run the corporate gauntlet, or the single parent gauntlet, or the foreclosed property gauntlet, or the unfair divorce gauntlet.

Are You Embarrassed By Your ‘jobs for senior citizens over 65‘ Skills? Choose Work At Home

You will get the know-how. Wealthy Affiliate is a welcoming, interactive web site community of trainees, experienced web owners, and experts.

If you are a total novice to this, you’ll be in good company.

If you are experienced at working on a web site, you’ll fly like the wind!

Either way, you can track every detail of web site marketing whether you’re acquiring, or enhancing your skill set.

But What Does It Cost To Get Started? Drum Roll…

Nothing…nada…zip. Having that out of the way you can click on the image below and start right now!

I can show you where to get the best training so you have a clear idea on how it works and how you’ll get a good start (with no start up money needed) in this field.

Disability income from the state barely covers essentials. It allows you to (in the US, and it may vary from state to state):

  • have one home
  • have one vehicle
  • have up to $2000 in your bank account per month, including your disability amount

This is extremely limiting to say the least. A person must have free room and board from family or friends, or they’re on the street.

Tent Cities And Tunnel Dwellers In The US

Just yesterday I viewed a few videos on you tube about tent cities and tunnel dwellers in the US. Thousands of individuals who live this way have disability income, with which they cannot pay for a room, or apartment, and utility bills.homeless need money

Many have a vehicle, and now they’re living in it. Parked permanently in some off-grid encampment, they cannot afford automobile insurance or maintenance costs.

Locally, the subsidized housing wait list is at over 50,000 applicants.

I see vehicle dwellings parked at the various public libraries, waiting for them to open so the drivers can go in and get on line, or just read all day. For warmth in the winter, cool in the summer heat.

With access to the world wide web, some of them may be working and earning some money on line.

At Home Or At The Library – You Can Earn!

If you’re reading this article on your computer at home you’re ahead of many lifestyle-wise. Yet if you’re starting lower on the ladder, you can still get ahead.

I personally know a lady who has several disabilities and is often in bed for days. Yet she maintains a free wifi in librariespresence on line by means of her laptop or iPad and she earns a supplemental income to her disability check.

The key to building success in this way is the right training. And, not having to pay a fortune for it.

The best opportunity is a free seven day trial with intensive training in the different aspects of

  • web site building
  • blog writing
  • finding products or services to promote
  • competing effectively
  • discount internet services (domain names and hosting)
  • support for all your questions (FAQ and live chat)
  • companionship of other beginners and experienced site owners

“So What Is The Actual Job?”

Through the training I recommend, Wealthy Affiliate, you would be writing reviews drawing shoppers to your web site(s). When those shoppers click to vendors such as

  • Target
  • Best Buy
  • Amazon
  • Walmart
  • Saks
  • Nieman Marcus
  • Home Depot…

…just to name a few out of thousands, you will be paid a commission from their purchase.

There are also affiliate marketplaces that manage the transactions between the affiliate, the vendor and the shopper. These managers provide the affiliate web site owner with links, images and banners so that you don’t have to know any code to make a site look appealing.

“But What Does This Job Really Look Like?”

This self-employment looks like you sitting at your computer, wherever it is. At your work station (mine is usually my couch) and as I’ve seen many writers joke about it “in my jammies”.

This a perfect job for anyone who is confined at home for any reason. Those without physical disabilities but who can’t deal with crowds or the cut-throat corporate life can work on their own at their own pace.can't deal with croeds

Yet this is a real job, not a hobby. There is a body of  professional knowledge involved. The reason why I recommend the Wealthy Affiliate training is because every detail contributing to your financial success is covered.

“But I’ve Never Worked In Sales!”

Affiliate marketing is not sales. You are referring shoppers to a good source of the products they seek. All you have to do is provide information,  and with your honest opinion and personal passion about a product, you will engage with a reader and inspire them to follow your advice.

It is work! It is a business. And like any business it will get easier as your site(s) gain traction and become fulfilling financially.

Focus On Your Favorite Things

What do you love?

  • Fishing
  • Golf
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Antiques
  • Art
  • Books
  • Electronics
  • Silk carpets
  • Toys
  • Model trains
  • Nutrition

Make your own list! And click over to my page Getting Started so you can see how jobs for the disabled at home can be created, tailor made for you, by you.

A Real Story About My Disabled Friend

jobs for the disabled at homeOne of my best friends, John, is a disabled 78 year old Marine Corp Vet. He came upon hard times and lived in a camper for a year, on my street. He has disability income and medical insurance, but not enough money to rent even a room.

Over the past year I and a few friends pulled our resources together and now he is living in a small house in a country town. Life is less expensive there, as opposed to the typical coastal city with its high prices on everything.

At first he felt overwhelmed going away from “everything”. He has favorite markets and places, like we all do. But how does he really get “everything”? He shops on line!

(The photo was taken at my friend Bodiemor’s house, one of the ladies who helped John get relocated. He is a dog magnet.)

My point being that many people shop on line now, even for their local groceries. Almost anything can be delivered to your door. And it is a real job, to help people shop on line and get paid!

Here is a picture of Gail, the lady who found his home in the country town and is helping him stay in it.

Woman with Wolf

We’re dog lovers all, and run with wolves (that’s a real one!)if we can.

John now has some options for supplementing his income. If he chooses, he can take the Wealthy Affiliate opportunity to sort out the scams from the real work at home jobs for the disabled.

You Can Help Others

Your job as an affiliate simply makes it easier for people to shop, and you get paid for it. You can provide information about the best products and deals, saving your readers time and money.

You can share this training with other disabled persons and in turn they can improve their lives as well.

I hope I’ve explained this well. My purpose is to give you a jump start on how blog writing for money works. Click on that link and sign on for more details!

I also hope that I’ve kindled your optimism and vision for your future as you’d like to experience it.

Earn Money At Home Online With No Delusions

scrabble words dream big

I just did a search online with the above title and similar phrases. Taking the first ten results, I can categorize most of them in the “delusions” list.

Wouldn’t you prefer to earn money at home online with realistic expectations?

Earn Money At Home Online With – What Exactly?

The first result tells us as a number one of fifty, “start a blog or online business”. Sure just go do that. His further instructions are useful and not at all deceptive. He advises you to click over  Bluehost and it will cost you only $2.95 a month to have a blog there. This is called hosting.

That is a great price. He further instructs with screen shots, how to get to the control panel and install WordPress.

Huh – whaaa? If you are beginner, this is difficult. Not that you can’t figure it out, but there are easier ways.

 

CLICK HERE to build a blog with no control panel and no installing anything. You will still get WordPress.

 

That’s easier, isn’t it?

 

CLICK HERE to learn about WordPress, which is a management system for writing web sites.

The link above takes you to a blog building system with two crucial features:

  1. The WordPress platform is further automated in several ways to start you fast
  2. The style of blog you will build is designed for a business blog to help you earn money at home

You now have a week to start professional training and create your blog, no money asked for.

No payment method asked for!

Notice Your Dream Ideas – Their Value

laptop lifestyle on the beach

 

Have you ever done two or more weeks of the following:

  • Travel overseas
  • Camping
  • Barge tour
  • River cruise
  • Ocean cruise
  • RV tour

And, when it’s time to go home you thought

“I wish I could do that and somehow incorporate it into my job!”

The good news is that you can! Writing about things you love, in a specific way, can result in income.

If you were to click on the “click here to build a blog” link above, you would have to simply give a name and email address to begin. No credit card or payment method is required.

You will be instructed to pick a niche, or narrow topic of interest that you might promote to others.

Then you will pick a domain name like “myfavoritetopic” for what will become a dot com registered name, that shows on the internet.

You will be shown how to put up a couple of legally required pages, and be given a template for them. All written for you, and you will insert your blog name where appropriate.

Your hand will be held all the way through this, with videos, and much Q&A in the discussions you can access.

Dream Ideas On A Solid Foundation

 

Firstly, how could you ever manifest an income earning “vacation life” as in the day dreaming above?

Could you write about travel and make a commission on sales of items people need to travel?

Could you write about camping and make commissions on sales of

Gotta have one of these camping canopies! Click to see.

Buy a camping table now!

Wow – a rooftop light weight cargo bag! I need one! 

Those links go to Amazon and are called  affiliate links.

That means that if a reader buys from there, I get a commission (or you will, on your blog). More details are outlined in my article How To Learn Online Marketing For Seniors.

I won’t repeat it all here. And more, you don’t even need to know any of that when you start a blog. You will be walked through every step in its proper sequence, and you have seven days to devote to this, with no financial investment.

One important step is to fill out your profile. You will make some good buddies in this community. They will help you make the best use of  your free trial period when you have questions.

Other Common Suggestions For Making Money Online

 

Filling out surveys is a big one. You can do that eight hours a day and earn $5.00 Amazon gift cards, or other coupon type things. That will never grow to be an income where you won’t have to worry about paying the bills.

You are interested in earning a living online, right?

Not in just making a couple of hundred dollars/Euros/Pounds a month.

As a senior needing more money in retirement, you won’t qualify for most of these surveys. They are designed for people who are building or restoring households with large consumer goods. Qualifying for surveys takes more time than most of the surveys.

There are good suggestions on this list of fifty, and the best ones require technical know how, certain educational levels, writing experience (and talent) and virtual administrative skills.

Those may be good ones for you. You will be a freelancer, and will have to promote yourself and find your own jobs. Check out my article How To Make  A Living On Fiverr.

This web site is all about how to make a good blog.

The focus of the blog training I recommended with the “click here” link is a business focus. The building steps are deliberately selected so you can develop your site in a friendly and welcoming manner, yet lead to income.

Those are the blogs you prefer, right? Informative, but friendly and accessible?

Make Work Fun

 

If you haven’t reached retirement age with $1.5 million in savings, you are going to be working.

Whether you’re over 60 now, or younger, it is a good time to plan how you will earn money. If you really love your nine to five job you can just keep going until “something happens”

Often jobs end without warning. A business gets sold and moved to another location. The management decides to get rid of everyone and hire younger people for half the pay.

Blogging is work and requires consistency and time management. It can be fun! Here is a little history about blogging

You are your own boss however, and you can adjust your schedule to what is comfortable for you. You can play the music you like while working. You can take a break and go run the dog.

You can RV around the country and keep working. You can blog on a train!

You can re-design your life according to your own interests and health needs.

Doesn’t that smell like freedom?

Retirement Money Needed!

seniors work from home jobs

Retirement Money Needed?

Is more retirement money needed in your future than you expect you will have? Are you working after full retirement age? Or realize that when you reach that year, you will have to? retirement money needed

This article is about learning a different way to supplement a retirement income. This entire website promotes training for a work at home job.(click there if you want to see the opportunity now)

Retirement planners say that you must have ten or more times your current annual expenses saved up.

They say “expenses”, not income, because most people have become accustomed to spending more than they make. Many people are comfortable paying out $300.00 to $500.00 a month to credit cards, and these debts are part of the necessary budget.

Ideally, you want to pay those debts off before you retire.

“The less money you have, the more you need it”. – Suzie Orman, financial advisor.

Professional Dress Code Attire – Keeping Up

In business, we are pressured to spend more than we should. The professional image is important, and many will emulate the way the boss dresses, feel pressed to buy a new car, or sport expensive accessories – all to stand out from the crowd.

I can recall my first job review, way back when I was twenty one years old. There were no complaints about my professional work. The main complaint from my employer was about my clothes.credit for business dress code attire

I was shocked! I dressed neatly and appropriately on the job. The special clothing I wore while working, was not provided by the company, and was not tax deductible.

The only way I could up my game was to stop saving and use credit. This was just at the time that incomes stopped rising for almost everyone.  And I mean, stopped rising through to the present.

We went from an income economy to a debt economy.

Millions who worked within better financial climates “lost it all” anyway in the “Too Big To Fail” fiascos.

Here we all are, with retirement money needed!

Working After Full Retirement Age

Our cultures thrive on consumerism, driven by advertising. The right clothes, the right cars, the glamor schools, and the inevitable debts.retirement money needed run for it

If you are over 50, and still in your best job, and still advancing in it, I hope you can save now. Yet unlike a twenty-five year old who can start putting $100.00 a month into a Roth IRA for the next forty years (ending up with about a million dollars, theoretically), you have fifteen years to save 1.5 million. Run!

How many of us thought we would end up working after retirement age? After many conversations and much search I can conclude that most folks want to – drumroll!…

…Work At Home After Retirement

Indeed, if you must work, wouldn’t you prefer to:

  • Avoid going to a job
  • Save on gas and time and car wear
  • Work during the hours you select each and every day
  • Spend more time with your spouse/friends/pets/no one
  • Visit your grandkids – whenever!
  • Enjoy the home you’ve invested so much in
  • Earn some extra retirement income even while taking a trip you’ve always wanted?
  • I repeat, work from home?

“Work from home” has become such a bad word! A cringe worthy phrase! They are all scams right?

Unless maybe you can learn to blog (meaning a write on a small and somewhat personal web

have to work after retirement?
source.

site) and share your experience from previous jobs, or hobbies?

And if you could do that blog writing on a couple of free giveaway web sites? As in, a real site that will appear on the world wide web and convey your valuable thoughts and feelings about something? And, make you money?

I would like to help you find a way to enjoy your retirement, your home, your time, and your loved ones. If you need more money in retirement, I can show you where to get training for a work at home job.

In my recent post  “Retirement Income – US”  I mentioned a talk show host, not a stupid guy by any means, who modeled “a good life” on a family of four, with two parents each bringing home about $45,000.00 a year. That made me gasp! That would not make a good life for four people in my state. Nor would those parents be saving anything to retire on.

Yet, this is the “typical” scenario.

I truly feel that The Wealthy Affiliate training and support web site can help you if retirement money is needed. This instructional community, will show you how to learn to benefit from your life experience and knowledge.

Wealthy Affiliate Review

working area sign with tools

Where Can I Build A Website For Free?

So many people ask me “where can I build a website for free“. Wealthy Affiliate I say.

 

That is the name of a unique membership training community for people who want to excel at internet marketing.

 

I understand that is probably the interest that brought you here, am I right?

 

What’s most important to recognize about Wealthy Affiliate is that you can learn to set up a blog the right way.

Would You Like To Learn How To Build A Blog From Scratch?

 

Is Wealthy Affiliate for anyone?

 

It is for people who have established businesses on line, and who want to increase their financial returns and maybe even retire from their day job, to work from home.

 

home office

 

It is also for people who know absolutely nothing about how to profit with a blog, and who have noticed that people are doing this, and writing about it.

 

Essentially, if you want to make some income on line you must first know how to build a blog (a web site) properly.

 

And that is the essence of the Wealthy Affiliate instruction.

 

This virtual village has 180,000 plus members, and new ones appear every day. The join up price is – free!

 

The owners are Kyle and Carson two of the best trainers in the work-from-home business arena, active since 2005.

 

You can read about Kyle’s take on 2017 on line training for the web here and about Carson’s recent blog about updated 4 step website building here.

What Is An Affiliate?

 

The affiliate is the person who connects with vendors and service providers on line. Affiliate marketing is one of several systems of commerce on the world wide web where you, the site owner, promote products for another business and earn a commission on the sales you generate.

 

shopping cart icon

 

There are many businesses which use affiliates and to name a few:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Amazon
  • Clickbank (a digital product vendor site covering every topic under the sun)
  • Best Buy
  • Home Depot

What Are The Advantages

  • No ordering products which requires money upfront
  • No stocking or direct selling of products which requires space at home
  • No complications such as getting a vendor’s permit, and filing quarterly income tax returns
  • Deductions from taxable income of your operating expenses (everything your tax code allows)
  • Complete independence as to where and when you work

How Do You Get Into Affiliate Marketing

 

I honestly don’t remember how I originally came across the idea of how to profit with a blog. I was a struggling single mom then, and when it dawned on me that I could write (which I already loved to do!) on a website, talk about someone else’s product that I respected, and then get a commission from a purchase – I was stoked!

 

woman with stacks of money

 

Could this be the answer to my prayers? The long sought relief from counting dollars every week?

 

Over a span of almost ten years, I had tried out many training packages about how to make money on line.

 

Some were good and many were useless and I never achieved the financial freedom I sought.

 

And I didn’t know what was holding me back.

 

Although, for a couple of years in there, I did profit about $3000.00 USD promoting a Clickbank product. In fact, that product gave me a $25 commission on each sale. Till it didn’t.

 

I’d love to help you avoid losing time like I did…The volumes I wrote for shared-revenue web sites (sites that sell ads and share the income with writers) didn’t retain any value when the site owners failed, or decided to move on and do something else.

When they did change their commission structure, or just bail, I scrambled to replace that income!

 

So, fast forward to when I found Wealthy Affiliate.

 

After a few classes, I realized that the information shared and organized by the owners and other trainers that contribute on the site, included all the details about what I needed to know to do so!

 

Hope returned!

 

Like I did then, now you need to learn about marketing opportunities, and how good websites promote them, or review products, or services.

Recent Fraud Stories – Senior Targeted

fraud scams stories

Just yesterday a friend witnessed a personal story of elder abuse and FBI fraud. The perpetrators were pretending to be the FBI. I wonder how many other recent fraud stories there are that we won’t here about.

 

Fraud Scams, Stories Abound – Take Notice!

 

If you think the FBI is not busy, take a look at this page showing successful investigations that resulted in convictions so far in 2019. Astounding, and with millions of dollars in fines for those in prison.

The scope of these scams are truly startling. We don’t hear about them on the evening news. They include:

  • Internet donor fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Lottery fraud
  • Health care fraud
  • Government contract in Afghanistan fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Counterfeit money operation

I could go on, and the first page on that link above is one hundred out of over nine thousand, as of today. You could read the stories for a month!.

 

In Her Backyard

 

Gail Bernstein, my generous friend I’m staying with while my broken leg heals, employs a handy man, a skilled senior who lives in his trailer and boon docks around town. He lives well enough, judging from the clean motor home and Dodge Ram that pulls it.

We don’t know his full story, but he’s not down and out and he himself looks well kept.

Yesterday when Gail went out back to check on his day of work in a backyard artisan shed, he was shaking like a leaf.

He had just received a phone call, allegedly from the FBI. They were on their way to pick him up.

elder fraud

The person calling him stated that he was a victim of identity theft. It involved his ex, and also involved theft and a murder.

He claimed that the FBI had frozen his bank accounts, and his Social Security benefits.

Most people would be shocked by this information. This senior was rattled and Gail and I were astounded.

Elder Fraud

 

“The FBI has opened 66 economic crime investigations related to elder fraud since March 1, 2018″…”
Its data shows confidence fraud and romance scams aimed at the elderly
accounted for more than $184 million in losses over the past year.” – Results of Elder Fraud Sweep Announced

This man’s life could have fallen apart quickly if he was detained for a couple of weeks, or even days. A boon docker, his home and vehicle would have been impounded, building up about an eighty dollar a day bill. Plus he would not be getting his mail concerning its whereabouts in a timely fashion.

Yes, he could lose everything, fast.

We don’t really know this person, but we felt for him.

The situation seemed drastic. Law enforcement certainly would need to establish that he wasn’t a willing participant in the fraud. It would need to verify his ID details and whereabouts during the criminal activities.

And we could do nothing to help. Gail could only wait to see if he showed up for the next day, or not.

It Is A Scam

 

The following day he showed up. He told Gail that he had called his son who lives in another state, and he looked up the situation and verified it is a scam.

This man is linked to the web by his phone but does not have a handy way of getting online with a computer.

(I know from using the library in a large city, how many seniors and disabled folks practically live there all day, to use the computers.

You can see from the cars parked outside that some of them live in their vehicles. What a sad situation in this wealthy country.)

Just imagine if these scammers had stayed on him and demanded that he text his SS number, birth date, et al, to their office. And then he did.

Fortunately that didn’t happen. I wonder how many terrified seniors did!

elder fraud abuse

Have any of them had heart attacks or strokes over this? Have they lost their life savings?

Scammed People Are Not Stupid

 

Senior generations were raised to respect authority and trust people in official positions. That makes them easy prey for scammers. It is almost incomprehensible the degree of depravity that goes on these days, facilitated by data mining by “respectable” businesses.

“The number of defendants, victims, and alleged financial losses exceeded last year’s figures, when the Department of Justice announced charges against more than 250 subjects and losses of more than $600 million.” – from the linked Elder Abuse article above.

Six hundred million!

When I wrote my article “Reverse Mortgage Risks” I wanted to warn seniors about the possibility of losing their homes, or signing up for an expensive and unfair loan. And, there are reverse mortgage scams.

 

I had no idea of the frauds going on.

My article Senior Poverty Statistics discusses the numbers and recommends the best place for a person to learn how to write a blog for money, just like this one you’re reading.

upsell multitasks

If that is of interest to you,

CLICK HERE TO LEARN HOW WITH A FREE WEEK OF TRAINING

 

You can learn the basics of small home business blogging, the right way, and engage with a million plus member community. Many of them are seniors who want to make some extra income from home.

I recommend it because I know it is not a scam. People can take a week to view basic site building lessons, and create two sites for free. Those sites will remain on line and belong to you, the creator, even if you do not join the training community.

You will not be asked for a payment method, or any other personal information other than your name and email address.

That’s pretty easy, isn’t it?

Thinking more about Gail’s employee, who is strong and can still work, that isn’t every senior. How long will he be able to earn money? What if he didn’t have family?

Social security or disability benefits can pay for groceries, gas, and sundries. It will not pay for a roof over one’s head. The homeless numbers in this country prove that, and many are seniors.

That’s why I recommend Wealthy Affiliate online training for internet marketing.

It is an ideal job for seniors and disabled people who cannot leave home to work.
