How To Retire Early

Make Money In Your Retirement

Is it possible to Make Money in your Retirement?

Yes, it is!
This might seem like a bit of a contradiction, you still need to work to make money, right? Yes, you do but I am not talking about 9 to 5 stuff here, I am talking about the freedom to work when you want to. The ability to work around your family and start doing the things you really want to in your life.

The internet has definitely made this possible. please don't goSTOP RIGHT THERE! Before you click out of here, let me assure you that there are some totally legitimate internet marketing companies out there that can help you realize your dream of living the good life.

You just need to know what to look for and that is where I can help. I have tried many programs on the internet, I have been scammed, more than once. I have spent precious time and money trying to find that magic formula that would give me the financial freedom I craved. I have learned a lot so, this makes me somewhat of an expert and now I would like to help you.

waA few months ago, I came across a company called Wealthy Affiliate. I believe this is the best thing that has happened to me so far in my internet career. I started this website in January 2015 and it is now only March 2015, and I have managed to build this website (an amazing fact on it’s own), I am learning how to do things the right way. You can read my Wealthy Affiliate Review HERE.

How old do I need to be to Retire?

Age is not the important factor here, this question will always come back to MONEY, or the lack there of. It is a fact that we all need money to survive, but what if you could make this money doing something you love? I can help you with this, as I am helping others, so please read on.

I believe it is possible for anyone, no matter what your age, to make money in your retirement. Young Mums, who find themselves at home with their new babies, may face an uncertain future where work is concerned. The unemployed, people who have been made redundant, people who just want a better life for their families.

How Much Money do I need to Retire Early?

make money in your retirementThis is certainly a difficult question to answer and would depend on many factors. Your age, your work history, how long you are going to live, whether you’ve been thrifty along the way? Are you happy to retire and have to struggle through your old age? I know I’m not and that is why I have taken action to ensure that money is never going to be a problem.

If you have worked for 40 years with the one company and have a good superannuation plan, then you will probably not need to worry too much. That’s not to say that you wouldn’t benefit or enjoy the concept of making money in your retirement. You will still want to keep your mind active.

Self Funded Superannuation

Unfortunately for me, when I started my working career, superannuation was not compulsory. Then, there were children to be had. Since becoming a Mum (I am Australian, okay), I was out of touch with the changing world and I only managed a few casual jobs along the way, which has now left me with very little superannuation to retire with.

All I really had to look forward to in my retirement was poverty. I knew I had to do something to change this, and that is where my internet career began. That was nearly 4 years ago now and I was just about at the point of giving up, but then I found Wealthy Affiliate. I now know I will never have to worry about money or retirement as I will be funding my own retirement. You see, if you are doing something you love, then it’s not work.

Happy Retirement Living

happy retirement livingMy future has never looked brighter than it does today, and it is all thanks to Wealthy Affiliate! I chose to build my website around Internet Marketing, because this is something I know quite a lot about. Wealthy Affiliate can help you build a career on the internet based on anything you are interested in.

I have recently helped a friend who has a passion for fishing to realize he can make a good living by going on fishing trips and writing about his adventures. He is a very good fisherman, so therefore has a lot of knowledge about fishing and can now pass his experience on to other people via his website. He can also recommend products to his audience that will improve their fishing experience, by writing reviews of products he finds useful.

What are you Passionate about?

Do you have a hobby or interest that you are passionate about? You might like to travel, but what if you could travel and write a blog about your adventures? Imagine, being able to travel the world writing reviews about the places you have visited, restaurants you eat in, hotels you stay at, and then turning your knowledge into a career that could help other people on their travels?

Once you have an audience, you can market to these people. Products that will help them on their own travels, remember, you are the expert here and people will start looking to you for advice. If travel is not your thing, don’t worry, this type of marketing can be applied to anything you are passionate about. This is actually called Niche Marketing. You can read my report on what niche marketing is HERE.

Choose your Future, Choose Life!

I am asking you to keep an open mind here and start taking control of your own future, if you are happy working 9 to 5 until you are in your late 60’s or into your 70’s, then this probably isn’t for you. But if you want to take control of your own future and have the freedom to work where and when you want, then this is something you probably should consider.

Wealthy Affiliate offer step by step training that will teach you how this is possible. It is a task based course that will have you taking action on daily tasks that will lead you into building a successful online business. You can view lesson 1 HERE.

retirement planingIt does take some planning though, so the sooner you get started the sooner you can start enjoying your life and your family.

By following the lessons and taking action on what you learn, you will be on your way to living the kind of life you only ever dreamed was possible.

So, you see, it is possible to make money in your retirement, but more importantly, you will have the freedom to enjoy your life, follow your passions and still have time for your family.

    You make it sound so easy, to just join an affiliate program, build a website, and start earning an income. I know that if you are approaching retirement age, and you can learn how to earn an income online, then this affiliate program must really be everything anyone could ever dream of belonging to. I want to know more and find out if I too can learn how to make money on the Internet. Count me in! thank you for your post, very refreshing!

      Hi Kenneth,
      Thank you for your kind words. I wouldn’t say it is easy, nothing that is worth it ever is. I do believe that if you follow the lessons and take consistent action you will be successful. You also need to keep in mind that it won’t happen overnight. It does take some work but it is very satisfying. Good luck to you Kenneth.

    Hi Kerry,
    One of the things that drew me to the Wealthy Affiliate program was this very topic. As a baby boomer, retirement is still a few years off but looming, and it can be financially challenging for so many reasons – as you’ve mentioned. I’ve also always wanted the freedom to work at home – which in many ways is better than retiring as far as I’m concerned.
    I couldn’t agree with you more – the potential in affiliate marketing is limitless and can be so empowering. I love the theme of your website and will visit again. Thank you for the great post!

      Hi Cindy,
      I totally agree that the affiliate lifestyle is way better than retirement and is actually something you never have to retire from. I love it too and couldn’t imagine not wanting to keep going with it. I like that my own future is in my hands.
      I am glad you like my website.
