If you’ve been downsized, outsourced, grown tired of the rat race, or just need more income in retirement, you’ve come to the right place. If you’ve got a few gray hairs now – as most of us baby boomers do – you may be concerned about how to supplement your retirement income.
Income is the essential key to a happy and secure retirement. If you don’t plan well – or worse yet – don’t even make a plan, you will face a challenging retirement struggling just to get by. Nobody wants that …
But, according to a recent Time magazine article, the average American will need $1 million just to have a comfortable retirement. Of course, most Americans haven’t saved anything close to that, so they’ll be forced to get by on social security payments alone. That’s almost impossible today, especially when you consider the average social security payment is a dismal $1174 per month. That’s enough to survive on – but barely.
Meanwhile, the cost of everything keeps getting more and more expensive. Quite frankly, my friend, you’re going to need more income. The solution is “semi-retirement,” or continuing to earn an independent income while enjoying your retirement.
If you need to increase your income this year, and in the years to come, here’s good news. There are thousands of part-time and full-time jobs and dozens of solid, legitimate home-based businesses that can bring you a good income, doing work that respects your maturity, wisdom and physical limitations.
There’s a perfect job or business for everyone over 55, regardless of what you’ve done in the past, or how far you got in school. Many offer flexible hours, working part-time or full-time. Many are “virtual” jobs, so you can work out of your home.
All of the home-based businesses mentioned here can be started with a modest amount of money – often as little as a few hundred dollars, and require no expensive equipment or years of training.
