No Pension And Retired

This is all too much a familiar sound from retired folk, no pension and retired. Now what, thought the work was done, now is the time to relax and enjoy life.

Taking that slow boat to nowhere is somewhat high on my list, all the way to Greece, I have my eyes set on a slow ride across the big pond and landing in Greece. Why Greece and a cruise ship, why not, Greece can use the tourism.

This is what retirement means to me, but I have no pension either, so is this just a pipe dream that will never be executed, no pension, and no money. How can it, it must cost a pretty penny for a trip like that.

You have put a lifetime of work in or just about a lifetime and do not want to have to get another job in the brick and mortar world, you have been there and it is somewhere you do not want to go again. Maybe you could get a job in this depressed job market of today, more than likely not.

You have paid your dues and now is the time to take it easy, leg is a bit sore and the shoulder does funny things at times, and the grey hair is sure to be a turn off to any potential employer at this point of time.

No pension and retired is not going to be very pretty, so how to overcome this at this age, employment at this age is very hard to achieve. I went out and got me some more education, that’s right back to school, not the usual school.

Have you been sitting there on the computer, blogging, socializing with your friends, searching all kinds of things that come to mind? In reality your just wasting time, and watching the world go by, what else can you do no money for school, hanging out with teens or 20 something's don't sound all that appealing to most of us.

Ever order anything off the internet, some music maybe or took to the internet to get a review on something you wanted to purchase and new next to nothing about it. Most of us have bought a few things off the internet at one time or another.

Do you know who you bought that from, probably not, but there are folks just like you retired and they are making money off of the internet, you just purchased a product and someone had to get that site up and put content on that site for you to look at. This could be you, with a little online marketing education.

The cost of online education is much less than going to a college or university, and you can do it in your own home or anywhere you have a computer.

You can be the one selling on the internet and making some cash in return, no pension and retired, who cares get back to school and learn how to sell products online. Get good at it and you too can be going to Greece on a slow boat, or where ever.

Great article Tim. More and more folks are in this situation if we beleive half what the press tells us. The motivation for these folks is there because they need money but often they are to "scared" to get into the web based business approach we have started. Regards Keith

I think because change for some is not goiing to happen very easy and that is a shame, sure would it be better if all was the 60-70;s again (for work purposes), but it is not....go with the flow or sink....it is so different people will run from it before they even know what it is about...and that is ok....more for us..:) thanks Keith..
