What Does It Mean To Retire?

My own vision of retirement is getting out of the active pursuit to earn money and slowing down a little to enjoy the fruits of your long term hard work.

I would love to be able to finally take it easy and longer have to worry about money. To live more and experience life better in the golden age.

I don’t want to be a sickly, wrinkly old woman confined to a rocking chair unable to do anything for myself. I never want to be a burden to anyone just because I have advanced in age.

Do you? I don’t think so!

I believe everyone wants a happy life until the very end of their days on earth. Many people are able to afford a safe and comfortable retirement lifestyle.

Others don’t. They suffer from old age poverty. Statistics from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) indicate a high rate of old age poverty in the United States.

While there may be many factors that can lead to old age poverty. I believe lack of proper planning contributes the most.

What Happens If You Don’t Plan – The Painful Truth

I have seen countless old folks struggling in their retirement age because they don’t have enough money. Life happened really bad for them or they simply did not plan.

There is nothing more painful for me than to see an old person dragging their tired bones and working hard just so that they can put food in their tummy.

In some societies, it is even more heartbreaking to see old people struggling not only to afford their own living but also to take care of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There are so many reasons old people have to bear this burden.

  • The parents of these kids succumbed to illnesses
  • The parents are alive but they would rather enjoy their lives instead of caring for their own children
  • Parents are drug addicts and they are incapable of working to support their families
  • Etc.

I failed to plan early Is My Life Doomed?

Not at all.

If you are at an advanced age but still want to do something to secure your future, you can still do so. But it means you will have to work with a lot of determination to achieve success. It’s never too late as long as you still have the fire in you. The hunger to make your life better.

That’s why I want to show you a simple way to secure your future to ensure that you don’t experience old age poverty. Start a business now while you are strong.

How Do I Start A Business For Retirement?

Great question!

Start An Affiliate Marketing Website

Why?

Because it takes time and effort to grow an Affiliate Marketing website to the level where it begins making passive income for you. That’s an unavoidable truth.

A lot of people get discouraged with this kind of business model because they expect quick results. That’s not the right attitude to go into the business world.

Affiliate Marketing is still the best business you can go into but you need to treat it like any other legitimate business and not a get-rich-quick scheme.

If you start early and keep working on your website at a steady pace with no pressure, I can guarantee you, by the time you need to retire, you will be earning a substantial income.

It a simple investment to your future. Starting early when you have lots of energy and enthusiasm will help you avoid being forced into working hard in your old age.

I have witnessed a lot of old folks beginning at old age and struggling to learn new things, simply because they have no other ways to survive.

Let me tell you, starting an online business in your 60s, 70s, and 80s will stress you the most because it is now crunch time. You expect quick results but it’s just not happening. That leads to more frustration and panic. You don’t want that, do you?
