Retirement is fast approaching for me, it only seemed like yesterday the children were small, and retirement was a lifetime away. That lifetime is fast disappearing and that nagging question fills my mind. Am I set up for retirement? Is it too late to prepare for retirement?
What will the future look like?
Can I look after myself for the next couple of decades and beyond? (My father is 92 years old, active and in excellent health… enjoying a better social life than me)
The truth is I am not set up for retirement… certainly not to live till I am 92 years of age, and comfortably like my father and unfortunately I am not alone.
Today there is an army of women, who will be working well into their seventies, that’s not to say that many, both men and women don’t enjoy working, the question is, what quality of life will they have?
Its been reported that one in three women retiring will have no Superannuation. (Retirement funding) according to an ABC News Report.
Throw into the mix, ill health… it’s not a pleasant outlook. Working just to survive isn’t what I imagined my life to be in my later years.
Have you experienced this…
Have you ever watched the news where some individuals were interviewed, and they mention their age… you look up in shock when they are younger than you, and appear decades older, (at this point you usually check the mirror just to be sure) but in all seriousness …they are broken and without hope, its quite sobering…
You can now understand why some people resort to spending their time and money on ‘good times’ at their local pubs and clubs.
Their prospect for the future seems bleak, based on their circumstances, and for all those looking on.
They have lost hope and vision for the future.
It doesn’t have to be that way… there is a solution.
What about your future?
Just to be clear here, its about quality of life… and not how much you have put away…
Some save and prepare for that rainy day, and are frightened to spend it, that rainy day ends up being their funeral.
Life is full of situations that can impact on your retirement, death of a spouse or divorce, investments going belly up, the list is endless. It really doesn’t matter how you arrive at this point, the end result is the same, you are not prepared for retirement and you will have to work.
Let’s face it, the government wants us to continue working and not rely on the old age pension…
We have to find another way, because it isn’t too late…
There are many opportunities today to start an online business, in fact the market is flooded with them. Some are potentially a good option, others not so much.
Personally I look back over the last few years and see a number of opportunities I could have explored, and they may have been successful if I had worked on them. But I didn’t pursue them for a number of reasons.
- Didn’t like the product
- The business model required cold calling or telephone sales
- Didn’t resonant with me
- Didn’t believe in myself
- Ethically questionable
- High pressure selling
- Lack of funds to get started
- Family and friends laugh at the idea
Whatever the reason it doesn’t matter, the point being they weren’t for me, certainly not for the long term. Its never too late to prepare for retirement…there is an online business that fits all the requirements.
- Its ethical
- No high pressure selling
- No B.S.
- A proven business model
- Mentoring and support
- Quality training products
- Community of like minded people
Does it take work? Yes, it does. Does it take some investment, and time, yes it does? Is it a get rich scheme? No. Can I do this if I have reached retirement? Yes, there is no age limit. Will it work for me? There are no income guarantees in life, however there is a proven model to follow.
I feel personally, it’s the missing link… that turns a business into a success…
One of the factors missing in most business models is support and a community of like minded people. This is a business that you don’t have to compromise who you are, you don’t have to pretend you are someone else. You have to be you and you alone, success is being yourself.
