Are you looking for job opportunities for senior citizens?

Do you work for an employer?  Are you dependent on someone else for a paycheck?  Are you looking for home based business opportunities for seniors to insure a future income?  What if you had income opportunities online?

Let me tell you the story of someone very close to me. He found himself in just this situation recently. He is a Heating and Air Conditioning tech for a local school district and loves the effect he has on his “customers”. They are uncomfortable, he shows up, adjusts the temperature up or down and voila, happy customers!

This particular individual is also one of the union stewards for the district union and once again, a fellow worker feels pressured or uncomfortable over a situation and our friend shows up, and tada, understanding arrives, support is there, and someone on their side is ready to fight for them.

A few days ago a supervisor got a little overzealous, made some accusations, and all of a sudden, our friend was being unjustly investigated for an “alleged” situation. We’re still waiting for the outcome, and I’m sure there will be a sigh of relief when a resolution is reached, but this is just an example of how, when you’re working for someone else, your financial well-being and retirement can be threatened in a heartbeat.

The example is about one reason for forced early retirement. Another close friend just had massive open-heart surgery. And yet another friend had a gall bladder removed which ended up infecting his liver and pancreas. All of my friends will survive, But this is a great time to think of what would happen if we lost our income before retirement.

What would you do if you suddenly found yourself over 55, laid off, and limited unemployment in front of you? Our friend’s wife assured him they would survive and started naming off ways to cut expenses. But what older people find out quickly is that the job market is severely limited for older workers. In many companies, insurance rates for the employer rise as the average age of the employees rise, Paid time off is higher due to recurring health issues, Older bodies aren’t as lithe and supple as younger ones so range of motion could limit physical work. The elderly mind doesn’t always remember or respond as quickly as a younger mind.  And the older worker may have more experience, but that means the potential for higher starting wage.

But there is a solution. There is a way we can be self-employed. We can move into the future with a way to make money on the internet. We don’t need to manufacture something, all we need to do is direct a customer to a website the customer might not have been aware of in the first place. It’s called affiliate marketing. There are literally hundreds of thousands of affiliate marketing programs, and literally billions of products available to promote in those programs.

Now, can YOU learn how to create a website?

Can you learn how to create a marketing post? The answer is YES! All you need is a good web host. Once again, there are thousands of web hosts and training programs. My advice is to find one that doesn’t charge you an arm and a leg. One with lots of training, one with other affiliate marketers who are successful themselves and MORE than happy to help you.  All you have to do is ask.

How about one with two free websites and 25 websites if you join the premium program, which is less than $50 a month. 50 websites if you include the ones you own the domain name with. There is one in particular that fits the bill. Wealthy Affiliate. You can get two free websites with training on how to set up your website. They teach you how to choose a niche. What is a niche? Your little corner of the market. Your favorite sport, your favorite hobby, even your lifestyle. Whatever you love to do, or own.

And you don’t need millions of customers, you only need enough to support the income you want. Keywords help those customers find you. If you like to fish, maybe your niche is fishing for trout. You might want to use a keyword such as “trout fishing in Colorado”. Throw a couple of your good trout pictures on your post, and you have a good website. Then you sign up for Cabela’s affiliate program, all of a sudden, you’re marketing Eagle Claw fishing rods and you’re an AFFILIATE MARKETER!

How would you feel if you had financial security?

And YOU were in control of it. Would you go ahead NOW and retire? What if you were in control of when you wanted to work, if you didn’t feel well that morning, roll over and take a few more winks. What if your friends want to go golfing at 11:00AM. Go for it! Each day you get to choose what you want to work on and when. Have a couple of websites and double your income. Or do a post on fishing the Grand Canyon and promote a guide company. The possibilities are endless. And it’s all available to you now.  This is a great way to have extra income after retirement.

Sure it’ll take a little work to get it done, but how will you feel when you make your first dollar, or pound, or lira. If you can make one, you can make two, you can make a THOUSAND. The good thing is, once you learn how to do it, you’re off and running, no one can take it from you. No one can file a trumped-up allegation and take it. Once you get it off the ground, you keep learning! And it isn’t physical. It’s not too taxing on the brain! And the more you learn, the more you are in control of your destiny.
