Retirement Income Solutions

Will you have to work until you are 70 or more? If the statistics are correct, many people will have to do just that. I’m sure you are asking, Why is that? The biggest reason is that they just didn’t save enough. To make it even worse the current financial crisis has taken a toll on 401K’s and for the same reason expected inheritances will not be as large. Companies are phasing out pension plans, health care costs are increasing at an alarming rate, and housing values are at an all time low.

So what will your retirement income solution be? 21% of people over 65 report income from jobs or self employment. If the economy doesn’t get better soon this number is expected to increase rapidly. Are you one of those affected by the current economic crisis? If you are I’m sure you are wondering what kind of job can I get if I do have to go back to work? There are jobs available. It’s just a matter of what you are able or willing to do.

Now is the time to develop some retirement income solutions. Don’t wait until you are behind on bills or have to cut back on the things you enjoy. Be proactive now. You won’t regret it. You are probably thinking okay fine what are the solutions? There are many of them from manual labor to being a greeter at a big box store. If that’s what you want to do that is fine but think about this. It’s bad enough that you may have to work but do you want to be at your employers beck and call.

There is a solution that allows you to be in control of your time. You can work your own hours, be your own boss, work from anywhere you want and your pay will be determined by your efforts not a fixed minimum wage. Sound to good to be true? Well it is not. Thousands of people are doing just that and a growing number of them are seniors. I’m talking about Internet Marketing.

Don’t take my word for it. Use the search engines to find out for yourself. There are a growing number of companies that will help you get involved in internet marketing. Do your due diligence, join some forums and ask questions. Seek out other people who are in the business, check it out at the library. Use the resources available to find a good training organization, then get involved. It sure beats being a greeter at a big box store.
