Please welcome to The Ageless Beat Blog, Baruch Leifer, who is talking about an amazing top. How to Earn a Decent Income After Retirement.
“Old, not obsolete”
Who said retirement means you should stop being active? Who said it should be boring? And who said it means less money and a depleting social life? Because whoever said it was dead wrong. Once you retire, all that keeps you away from remaining an active, working and socially involved individual is your own mentality.
The idea that after retirement kicks in your social life, as well as your income, will plunge dramatically is probably one of the biggest misconceptions we still hang on to. You may not realize it, but there are plenty of options for you to maintain an active lifestyle and generate quite a decent income, even after retirement.
Here are some interesting options you might want to take into consideration:
From full grown adults to babies, this job fits right in. Especially for women who are retired, becoming a babysitter is like second nature. Not only will you bring your life’s worth of experience, but you will also find yourself reliving those motherly moments from when you had your own kids to take care of.
This is a great way to boost your income and remain mentally and emotionally active.
- Family Caregiver
As shown by the N.C.A (National Council of Aging), 80% of seniors receive assistance in their own private homes. If you have a family member, spouse or family friend that needs help at home, you may be able to get paid to help them.
On this note, being a family caregiver actually sounds profitable. And you will have peace of mind knowing you are the one doing the caregiving.
- Online Freelancer
If you are more of a creative type, this could be a jackpot for you. There are plenty of opportunities to find a well-paid job online, as long as you develop proper skills and have time, patience and commitment. But the payment will be worth it.
Add to that the fact that you get to work from the comfort of your home, and you can see why a lot of retirees have become so attracted to this idea over the last few years.
- Why not write a book?
There are a lot of writers who have started their careers in their mid-40s or even later. Writing a book is easier than you might think, especially since publishing it is nowhere near as difficult as it was in the past.
Nowadays, Amazon Kindle Publishing is your best friend, as it allows you to remain in full control of the publishing process. This is a great way to earn passive income every month and the more books you write, the more the income will increase.
- Go creative on YouTube
Not all people are skilled at writing, and developing those skills can take a lot of time and effort. But how about the entertainment side? All you need is a little bit of creativity, 2 ounces of charisma and you can hit it big on YouTube.
Generating enough income to make a living out of YouTube is by no means easy, that’s for sure. But it sure isn’t impossible. All you need is a good idea to start with and everything can snowball pretty fast.
- Movie extra
The only downside is that the payment is decent, but just decent. The benefits? You get to appear in major Hollywood blockbusters while travelling to some of the most exotic locations across the globe.
If you are a more social and active person that dislikes sedentarism, then this is your go-to dream job.
This is, by no means, an exhaustive list. You know what suits you best depending on what type of person you are, which means there are unlimited options available for you as long as you know where to look.
Life Starts After Retirement
If you think retirement is not going to be fun, think again. As a matter of fact, this is where the fun begins. This is where you will become truly free and start working on fulfilling your dreams, travelling the world, and experimenting with different occupations without being tied to one place or one particular job.
Just let your mind run wild and start living.
