Have You Written Your “Life After Retirement” Plan?
With the economy in such a shambles, life after retirement may have been forced on us. Sure, we plan to “stay” working but not to be “forced” to leave and perhaps take a reduction in pay if we stay. Perhaps a dream you had early on was to own your own business? Bills piling up you just got a job and stuck with it for 30 years like it or not! Geri Walker, Internet Marketing consultant with WalkerMarketingGroup.com shares Her strategies with us in this 24 minute interview.
We make the best of a bad situation most time believing that one day we can retire and do what we want! With our gold watch and plaque in hand, our dreams are looking as dim as the menu or book we’re trying to read without glasses!
Retiring has it’s pluses and minus’s. Having a plan for life after retiring may prepare us to move forward with a sense of happiness rather than worry over the latter years.
Some people retire without a plan and within a few years die. Sitting in front of the tv all day, looking for something to do, puttsing around without a plan, having nothing to inspire us may contribute to that mental and physical death. My mom has always been “with it”. She loves numbers and reads alot. She finds joy in sending cards to everybody and the responses she receives sustains her in her latter years. On the other hand, my dad got to the point where he could no longer do wood working and found only pleasure in watching tv. His mind began failing and weakness took him, body and soul.
It’s been said, “Ignore your health and it will go away.”
Life After Retirement And The Possibilities
There are some who can’t wait to retire so they can begin to enjoy their latter years and their pensions. One such woman I interviewed, Geri Walker, planned for retirement. She also began learning a new skill of internet marketing, knowing that it would fit well with the future travel plans she desired for herself and her husband.
Having a retirement plan is just as important as having a health plan or a business plan. Realizing that we may be looking forward to a less active life down the road, the internet is a place to use our skills effortlessly. No more having to get up early to make our coffee, lunch, fight traffic, and listen to our young boss tell us what to do.
Internet Marketing And Your Life After Retirement
Planning for retirement could mean an opportunity to create an income we can access throughout our later years. Network marketing is an industry that suits those retiring. Retiring salesmen, realtors, insurance agents, IT techs, and many others skilled socially and on the computer, transition beautifully.
