What do I do Now, no Job, No Business or Not Retiring Soon!… Day 3

Do you feel like this sometimes!Do you feel like this sometimes!

FOR WHATEVER REASON WE FIND OURSELVES EITHER OUT OF A JOB, LOST OUR BUSINESS OR JUST RETIRED WE ASK OURSELVES –                          “What do I do now?”

  • If retired we would prefer not to lounge about all day doing very little. With an aging population we want to enjoy our “Golden Years” with more exciting things to do – hopefully more than their parents could ever do!
  • If you have lost your job there must be other income bearing activities to take part in but you say “What are these?”
  • Similarly having lost your business, perhaps often through no fault of your own, you turn your mind to other possibilities.

BECAUSE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO CONTINUE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THEIR LIVES AND THEIR FAMILIES THERE ARE NUMEROUS EXAMPLES ON HOW THEY CAN HELP THEMSELVES AND/ OR THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS.

Okay, so you get those who want the easy life living off social security and benefits but I like to think that the great majority of people want to work as a matter of personal pride and sense of responsibility for their families and dependents and many are not ready emotionally to accept total reliance on the State or the concept of retirement. Many people still retain all kinds of professional and entrepreneurial skills and still have what it takes. They want to increase their basic level of income and are still highly motivated to achieve financial success in their own way.

Retirement challenges ahead hard-work

Whether you are younger or older there are still many challenges to overcome but of course they are different from each other.

  • Younger people may not be very skilled through a lack of training opportunities and limited experience. BUT there are so many doors that will open for them if they care to look around and see what is available.
  • For older people it is often a different story – the circumstances differ in that perhaps their children are grown up and left home, their mortgage paid off but they still have a cash flow problem to afford those luxuries in life such as a holiday cruise or trip to some exotic place, going to the theatre or the opera or enjoying all sorts of activities – indoor and outdoor bowls, country walks, swimming, golf, horse riding etc. They are part of the baby boomer period when someone said “you’ve never had it so good!” – who was that in the UK? Oh yes I remember!
  • Whatever their personal circumstances, whether having neither wealth nor affluence to rely on, the pathway is still open of them to opportunities as we will find out as we travel through this article.

The good news is that there is minimal financial risk to proceed with what they are doing. Younger people may be impetuous or anxious in moving forward but older ones have more time to assess what they want; the commercial aspects, consider market opportunities, developing saleable products and indeed bringing into play much of their business experience from the past.

Retirement - good news enimage2

Whatever your age, it makes sense to concentrate on your area of expertise in the market place. Of course, the younger ones may have limited experience but still they should use it to grow into their proposed job or business opportunity. “You know it makes sense!” Now in the older sector, you can draw on your past experience and occupation which are often considerable and you have a tremendous advantage over your younger counterparts. BUT don’t worry even if you want a complete change of direction for the future, there are openings ready for you. It may be something related to what you have done before. In the pages that follow, you will find dozens of suggestions which could well propel you into a better lifestyle and profitability.

  1. Hi John,

    You’ve hit on some great points here for people to consider, especially in today’s economic climate… Gone, pretty much are the days of working for a company long term, most are down sizing, laying off or out right going out of business.

    It really hurts my heart to see this happening to people, I mean we follow the rules, we went to school, got a job, pay taxes and worse of all is many people lost big time $$$ with their 401k from the 2007/2008 financial melt down.

    That is why I love the internet, because it avails so much opportunity for us to take control of our own financial destiny…

    Sure it can be scary at first but it beats the alternative of depending on the government.

    The Internet is not partial toward age, race or creed… All’s you need is the desire to adventure out.

      Hi Willie, I really appreciate your comments and like you say, it is so sad that people work hard for a comfortable retirement only to find as they get nearer to retirement, the goal posts have been moved to their detriment.

      That is why the internet business is such a blessing. You can work from home and be your own boss – you are no longer relying on your boss!

      Like it has been said elsewhere okay, you continue to work hard but at least you benefit directly from your own efforts!

      Cheers John Barton
