Hi my fellow retirees.
When we retire we no longer have that structure in our lives that our jobs gave us. While we are happy to not have to fight the traffic, or be tied down to a job, sometimes we feel like there is something missing. Something our jobs provided that our retirement doesn’t. This realization causes many of us to decide to look for part time employment.
The problem with part time employment for retirees is that they are going back in to the “rat race”, just on a lesser scale. They still have to fight the traffic, and adhere to a certain schedule that is not their own. They still may have to deal with difficult co-workers and less than ideal working conditions. They may find that this is not the answer they were seeking.
What is the answer?
Of course the answer will vary from one individual to another. I can only tell you what I came up with for myself, and you can decide if it is something you would like to try. Maybe it could be an answer for you, too.
If you have read my about me page, you will know that I took care of my elderly parents for a number of years. This was a labor of love; but very demanding and stressful. It became my way of life. My main focus was overseeing their care, taking them to appointments, making decisions about their care and ordering the supplies needed.
When they passed away, I was not only mourning for their presence; but I had lost my main focus, or my purpose. I had an empty void where my caring for them had been. I knew I would need to fill that void with something, or I would sink into a depressive state of grief. I also knew that just sitting around watching TV and eating wasn’t good. It would pull me down and suck me under. No, the couch potato life wasn’t for me.
I came across an email promoting affiliate marketing. I decided to check it out; but I wasn’t sure if it was something I could do. There was a fee for the information that I was unwilling to pay. I was aware of how people got caught up in scams; and I didn’t want to become one of them.
I’m happy to say, as I was researching, I stumbled across a website promoting a learning community called Wealthy Affiliate. What I noticed, right away was that it was completely free to start. All I had to do was sign up. I wouldn’t have to even give them my credit card number. So I did what I always do; I searched to see if it was a scam. Well, I found lots of references to Wealthy Affiliate and scam; but when I looked into them, they were positive reviews for Wealthy Affiliate!
I found a lot of positive reviews, and hardly anything negative. So I read what they were offering for free. A free membership, seven days of free lessons and 2 free websites! Wow! What did I have to lose? I could get started for free! So I signed up. You can check it out below:
I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for close to six months now. I have learned so much, and there is still so much I can learn.
I love connecting with the community. There are people from all over the world. Wealthy Affiliate has over 800,000 members.
800,000+ Community Size
I learn something new every day and I am constantly gaining new perspectives. I love writing blogs
on the Wealthy Affiliate site and reading the blogs of others. I have made many wonderful friends.
The Wealthy Affiliate Community becomes like a cyber family.
I have found in Wealthy Affiliate that sense
of purpose that I lost when my parents died.
I am learning and growing. I am using my creativity!
I am connected to a group of people who are supportive and caring.
There is more knowledge on the Wealthy Affiliate site than I have time to take in.
I feel blessed to be a part of such a knowledgeable community.
Perhaps you are thinking you are to old to learn how do do internet marketing.
I just turned 69 last month (Shhh! Don’t tell anyone) and I now have a website and an internet business.
When I started with Wealthy Affiliate, I didn’t know if I could learn either; but within 2 days, I had built
my very first website. The training made it easy. If I can do it, so can you!
All you need to get started is a computer, a laptop,
or a tablet and an internet connection.
Most of us already have these tools.
What other business can you start for $0 investment capital? And the best part is, you don’t even have to leave your own home. You can work in your jammies if you want. You don’t have to fight the traffic, deal with unrealistic deadlines, or put up with disagreeable coworkers.
Is Wealthy Affiliate free forever?
No; but it is free to get started.
You get a free starter membership, seven days of free lessons and 2 free web sites!
I became a premium member before those seven days were up; but you have all seven days,
(without paying a cent) to decide if this is for you. If you need more time to decide, you can go
premium for a very affordable price of $19 for a month. Then you can pay month by month if
you don’t want to be locked in. But if you go yearly, you will save. Here is a breakdown:
First month premium membership – $19
Go yearly and save – $359
(Comes out to about $29 a month)
If all they had to offer was the training, it would be worth it;
but there is so much more.
Kyle and Carson, the owners can be reached by email or private messaging. They are always willing to help. They personally greet each new member by commenting on their profile page. They do everything they can to ensure that each member has a pleasant and successful journey.
Are you feeling a void in your life?
Do you want something to fill those lonely hours?
Do you want to use your abilities and talents to help others?
My friend, the decision is yours. I am bringing you this information, so that you can make an informed
decision. For myself, I figured I didn’t have anything to lose, and everything to gain!
Now I am living vibrantly, using my creative nature, making new friends and using parts of my brain
I haven’t used in years! No Alzheimer’s for me. My brain is active, creative and alive.
I’m not just enduring life; I am living it!
If there were nothing more than the community,
it would be worth it.
The community is made up of very positive and helpful people. I love writing posts, reading posts, and
commenting and answering comments. I have had to limit my time interacting on there, which makes
me sad; because I love it so much; but I needed more time to devote to my lessons and my website.
If all Wealthy Affiliate offered was the training modules,
it would be worth it.
But along with those lessons there are live seminars. There are many wonderful trainings by our
ambassador members. There is live chat; where members can ask questions and usually get
answers from other members within a minute or two. Or there is the questions and answer forum,
where you can type in your question to ask it to the Wealthy Affiliate Community. This is another
way to get answers. There is a badge system to track your progress within Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy Affiliate is a safe haven where you can learn
and grow at your own pace.
A place where you will get positive comments
and constructive feedback.
All it takes to succeed is hard work, time and determination.
Everything you need to learn is supplied.
I have brought this learning community to your attention, and explained it to you, so you have a better understanding of how it works.
The decision whether to pursue this opportunity for part time income is entirely yours.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you come back again sometime. I love company and
my door is always open.
