I can’t afford to retire; I need additional income to support my wife and I in the lifestyle we are accustomed to. Our pensions and savings just don’t do the trick.
Sound familiar? Too many people in their fifties and sixties plus are discovering that they need to find a way to supplement their retirement incomes.
They don’t want to continue to work in the jobs they have held all their lives. They want to be on their own working from home in their own business.
They want more leisure time, more income, and more respect. The good news is they are entitled to it and there are opportunities out there that they can take advantage of with minimal investments of their time and money.
The best news is that today people in their fifties and sixties are no longer really considered Seniors. They are part of the new middle class group consisting mostly of Baby Boomers who have taken care of themselves and have the energy, spirit, and attitude to start over and make a new beginning with a new work from home opportunity of their choosing.
It’s important that these Seniors/New Middle Aged Group be aware that there are scam artists out there waiting to take advantage of them and their emotional responses to their new situation.
You should watch out for these phony opportunities by making a check list of things to do to help you determine if the work from home opportunity you are checking out is real and worthwhile.
1. Does the Company make claims of giving you instant riches?
2. Does it tell you this opportunity will only take a few minutes of your time?
3. Does it tell you the opportunity is totally free?
4. Does it promote how many millionaires they have made?
5. Do they have real worthwhile testimonials from current users?
6. Do they have a Better Business Bureau clear record?
7. Do they offer e-mal and telephone support from live agents?
The list could go on, but you get the idea. You need to check out work from home opportunities the same way you would check out a business that you were going to buy that isn’t Internet based.
That’s right, the chances are that these work at home opportunities are Internet based. Don’t get scared off because you are not a computer expert.
The better work at home opportunities offer tons of free advise and some will actually set up your business for you so that you and they can joint venture the promotion of work at home products.
You should look at starting a work at home business on the Internet as a learning experience. The more you learn, the better you will be at what you are doing. You are not too old to learn, are you?
That’s right, you are going to have to get some new experience to go with the wealth of knowledge you have acquired over a lifetime.
