The Baby Boomer generation has been hit hard by the recent downturn in our economy. Many Baby Boomers, ready to retire, suffered a financial loss when the stock market hit a down-turn. In some cases, 401K funds and retirement accounts lost almost half their value. Baby Boomers, perched on the edge of retirement, have had to re-think their financial futures, and are now working longer than they anticipated; unable to retire without some type of additional income.
But, Baby Boomers are a resourceful generation, and many of them are starting secondary careers, rediscovering their Entrepreneurial spirit, and supplementing their retirement pensions while becoming self-employed and working from home. Some Baby Boomers have opted to continue working, while others have decided to retire and supplement their retirement funds with a second career.
The World Wide Web has opened a whole new world of self-employment opportunities to anyone wanting to work from home, and retirees are taking full advantage of this phenomenon in order to prop up their depleted 401K accounts. There are over 1.73 Billion people currently online. The internet is transforming many aspects of our lives. It has changed the way people communicate, the way we stay in touch, shop, get information, review products, and it has changed the way companies advertise and market products. Internet marketing has become a multi-million dollar industry. Businesses are advertising online like they used to advertise in print media. For the generation with the entrepreneurial spirit, the internet has quickly become a great opportunity to become self-employed, work from home and earn money, either a primary source of income or as supplemental income for retired individuals.
If you are currently a retired Baby Boomer and you are looking for a way to supplement retirement funds, or if you are a Baby Boomer who has decided not to retire yet because of financial constraints, you may want to seriously consider a second career working online from home. The world of internet marketing needs you!
Working online from home is the perfect opportunity to earn money and have a career while working from home. Having sufficient funds to retire comfortably need not be a pipe-dream. You can earn a substantial secondary income as a self-employed home-based business owner. There are many programs being advertised online for people who want to learn internet marketing. Some of these programs are in excess of $30,00.00 to purchase. However, some of these programs are being advertised at under $500.00. It is not necessary to purchase the most expensive “franchise”, nor will you learn everything you need to know for a couple of hundred dollars. A great internet marketing program should cost you less than $3,000.00, which is a very small investment for the opportunity to have your own business. Research any internet marketing program thoroughly, and do not fall for promises of “instant wealth.” You are Baby Boomers. You know it takes hard work and dedication to any endeavor for it to become profitable.
Supplementing your retirement income and your shrinking 401K doesn’t have to be difficult. Earning money and starting a new career working online from home can be lucrative and interesting!
