Retirement! Will I Be Working Online To Supplement Income?

All indications are that, yes, there has been a definite increase in the number of seniors working online to supplement income. I see it everyday when I am answering questions and checking through comments and profiles in the Wealthy Affiliate online community I work with. Many of the newer members disclose their age in their profiles and others comment about their retirement. I am always looking for ways to supplement my retirement income. It is not unusual for senior citizens to be excited about starting a second career based on the expertise that they have. And what the heck, working online to supplement income while working at home doing it can be a lot better than running off to a day job somewhere, paying for commuting, lunches and dress clothes or uniforms. I work everyday at home and I can be in various stages of dress when I am sitting…

Working At Home Online. Is It For You?

Several years ago my wife worked at home doing typing for various local companies. While this was not actually working at home online, it shows that working at home is nothing new. There are plenty of people who work at home and have for years. For instance, you have chefs running catering businesses from home, secretarial work is done at home, there are probably thousands of people running day care centers from their home and even some of the major computer firms were started in the owners garage. So it is nothing new. But with the ease and availability of Internet service, working at home online has become a way of life. Today there are a multitude of ways you can work at home. All you really need is a computer, Internet access and a telephone. What home does not have those today? What Type Of Work Lends Itself To…

Hopefully after you read this you will be able to spend a lot less effort than I did. Why re-invent the wheel? Right! Legitimate Home Based Business Opportunities. Can You Find Them? When I started back in 1992 (yeah I know… back in the day!) the Internet was starting to heat up with all kinds of offers, good and bad. It was just as difficult then as it is today to find legitimate home based business opportunities. I was getting ready to retire from my full time day job.

Can Retirees Work Online From Home?

As a retiree, I decided to work online from home. I had tried some part time jobs with local companies but they were not challenging and did not pay that much. Then I started looking at opportunities to work online from home. I had retired at a young age since I was in law enforcement and because I was that young I really needed something to keep my brain active after retirement. So I chose to begin my journey to work online at home. When I started, I really had a big learning curve to conquer because I had no experience in building websites, doing email marketing or managing sales activity, such as customer service online. And back when I started there were not too many training programs to help me out. So I had to teach myself. Today, there are some excellent opportunities for those who have goals to…

Can You Make Money At Home Without Investing Some? Yes and No!

One of the things that has bothered me over the years has been the belief by many entrepreneurs that you can join a network marketing program for free and that you then can end up creating income at home and make money with it without investing something. Let me ask you this, could you open up a store downtown and pay your employees if you had no sales? Of course not. If you are not bringing in money, then it is difficult to payout any. You can join an affiliate program for free and promote products or services and make a commission on each sale. Clickbank, for instance, is one of the biggest resources for selling products or services as an affiliate. But that is what you are doing, selling a product and making a commission on it. If you don’t make sales, you don’t make commissions. There is no…

What Are You Doing After You Retire?

If you are twenty-five years old right now, you are probably not thinking about creating income at home after you retire. But if you are close to retirement or already retired, it may be a question that has surfaced given the economic environment we are in today. I retired when I was 51 years old since I had a career as a federal law enforcement officer and I could retire with twenty years service. So I was pretty young compared to the average retiree. I also had a good retirement income so it was not essential that I go out and get a job. So I took it pretty easy for a couple of years doing nothing. But I started getting bored. There is only so much yard work and home repairs you can do. So I ventured out and did some private investigating for awhile and some sales and…

Are You Treating Your Online Business LIKE a Business?

Over the twenty years of my online business activities I have met many new entrepreneurs. Most had very high hopes of succeeding and making the extra income they needed. Most had an initial goal of turning it into a full time income. Despite high expectations, a majority of them failed and continued in the nine to five grind. One of the causes of their demise was their inability to treat their endeavor as a true business. Why? Some fall for the hype – “We do all the work, no recruiting required!” or “This is a ground floor opportunity, company spillover will build your organization!” or “Work one hour a day and make $1,000’s!”. I am sure you have seen those type claims. Many entrepreneurs are new to online marketing and are not sure what to do. Many believe the claims that you do not have to invest any money in…

Creating Income Working At Home

I have been working online for over 20 years now and I have been in a position to see many, many online business opportunities come and go. I have probably seen more go than stay around which makes it difficult to try creating income at home. Why do so many opportunities disappear after a short period of time? Because they are either scams, they were structured to make the owners all the money or they just were not built to stay around for the long term. There are many that were launched back in the day when I first started and they are still going strong today. In today’s world, the economy stinks and people are continually looking for ways to increase their primary income and/or supplement income. As the need for creating income at home rises, the scams continue to surface and people are taken advantage of.

A business is a business whether it is down the street in the mall or in is online on your website. Neither builds itself, they both take work to make a profit.

Starting Your Online Business is A Lot Easier Today!

Many entrepreneurs thinking about making a go of it online would like to take a shot at it but they don’t want to spend a lot of cash to try and get started. I have been there and done that. Years ago when I first started, I built a free website. It was called “Free Yellow” and many old timers will probably remember it. The company is still around but they do not offer free websites any more. I built my free website and started testing the online waters. After a period of time I started building websites with my own domains and hosting and have expanded my online business presence to over 12 domains and web sites.
