Is a Wealthy Retirement Possible?
Whether you are retired or are planning for retirement, conventional pension plans don’t cut it anymore.
We are living longer, 20 to 30 years beyond retirement age. Those fixed monthly pension payments no longer keep up with inflation.
Can we achieve a wealthy retirement income?
Hi, My name is Ken Hart, I am known in my blog posts and Facebook page as The Sage Grandad.
It is my mission as a retiree struggling to live on a small pension to help others. Those who are already pensioners and those wanting to ensure a secure, safe, long and wealthy retirement.
I am a pre Baby Boomer born in war torn Great Britain in 1943, much has changed in my lifetime.
Health is the most important thing to survive a long retirement, we all know these days that diet and exercise are crucial.
After health, wealth is the next most important issue we must consider for a carefree comfortable retirement.
In the UK we are all entitled to the old age pension (OAP) at 65, soon to be 67, assuming you have contributed for a given number of years.
As well as the OAP some of us have private pensions, others have company pensions.
The big issues with pension schemes are:-
- We are living into our 90s and with the constant devaluation of our currency. Will the set payouts support us for 20 to 30 years following our retirement date?
- If you incur some kind of crisis during your working life such as accident, injury, illness or redundancy. When you need that money invested in your pension the most, it is not available to you.
Should such unfortunate problems occur, it could be the case that you are unable to make further pension premium payments. This will result, as in my case, a much reduced private pension payout.
To ensure life after retirement, both health and wealth are important factors.
Is there an alternative to the 9 to 5 set income?
Is there any hope for those of us already retired?
How do we Achieve a Wealthy Retirement?
It doesn’t matter if you are fit and able bodied, disabled or incapacitated in any way.
If you can spare one to two hours a day, and able to use a computer, have an internet connection, you can re-educate yourselves, learn about income streams other than the 9 to 5 drudgery the world is your oyster.
Of course one has to be careful, there are scams out there, lots of shiny objects that will only make money for the vendor, leaving you high and dry.
My daughter and I have worked together for the last 19 years in 3 businesses, 2 of them bricks and mortar. The most recent just over 3 years ago when my daughter started her family, at the same time as me having some serious illnesses.
We Learned to Future-Proof Ourselves.
My daughter wanted to have an income without leaving home, to be with her children.
She investigated online marketing and was with her first company for about a year and lost money, unfortunately the education was sadly lacking.
It was when she saw colleagues from the same organisation announcing great commissions, that she investigated. She is now with, another company that holds your hand, guides you through it’s boot camp with expert mentors with a supportive group of fellow members.
My daughter is now at the level where she has her own groups in social media that offer newcomers total support. Her website has a series of video tutorials, teaching members how to set up and use the tools necessary to run online businesses.
I joined my daughter in this business over a year ago as my health recovered, at first it was in a support mode, doing her accounts, then I started to take more interest in what she was doing.
An On-Line Marketing Revolution.
All of the education received in her affiliate marketing can also be applied to other affiliate businesses and the more traditional MLM (Multi Level Marketing) businesses.
Instead of always tapping into a warm market (friends and family), MLM products can now be promoted on a global scale, using the same techniques used in affiliate marketing.
As a result of this and new systems now available, marketing is a lot easier.
With the support and backing of your fellow marketers, you can take more than one product to market using just one platform.
A system that allows you to develop your own pages and follow up.
A system that is self-supporting as it is an affiliate system whereby you can earn from promoting it. The earnings you make, will pay for the system and finance the advertising of the other products you wish to promote with it.
Before I move on to the good bits, I should introduce my daughter and mentor.
I am sure some of you know her. For those who don’t,
let me introduce the star of Facebook Live, the fabulous….. Karen known in Wealthy Affiliate as Dream-Hacker.
