A bit of backstory

We and Jo started in 2010 post the recession of 2008 when the internet was in it’s infancy with no fancy tools like we have today yet we faced the fear and did it. We neither of us knew if it would work but somehow we just knew it would and we had to try.

For Jo it all began one day when feeling stuck and miserable they agreed to house sit for a friend in Cyprus who was involved in something called “internet marketing”

With no income and not a lot of savings, they knew they had to start earning fast and this is her story

Fast forward to 2013, Jo has been location independent running a 6 figure online businesses for well over a decade now just as we have… her husband too! Their daughter was 4 when they packed up everything and moved to Cyprus and finally arrived in Phuket in Thailand (they’ve lived and travelled to 40 countries!) where they settled so she could get through her higher education years but today they’re ready to get the backpacks out again

We talked about reaching 50 – that all important milestone in our lives (we started our online business in our mid 50’s) and about “unretirement” – that time when you want to get the absolute best out of the second half of life.

How it’s very possible to grow a location independent lifestyle business doing something you love that gives you the freedom to work and live anywhere in the world.

And it needn’t be complicated…

Nor does everyone want to be a multi-millionaire even…

They just want to be comfortable and not have to worry about money and be able to do the things they dreamed of doing

As Jo says, most people can quite easily start a side hustle today and generate some money selling stuff they don’t want for example

It’s one of the things Gary Vaynerchuk talks about in his videos too

It’s a start and then the thought of other ways of making money kicks in

Building a lifestyle business isn’t just about breaking financial barriers, it’s about designing a life that literally makes you leap out of bed each morning. 

And, as Gen X or Baby Boomers, our age isn’t a barrier; it’s a goldmine of wisdom and experience that gives our lifestyle businesses their unique edge

Talking “unretirement”…

And just for fun, Jo shares the famous “unretirement” video of Tom Brady and his NFL friends going back on the pitch – it’s very funny 🤣🤣🤣 but it does make the point.

We’ve got years left in us so let’s make the most of it!

She says that now it’s her mission to share her experiences and help others build their own lifestyle business that gives them the freedom to live and work from anywhere in the world whether that be your kitchen table or a beach in Fiji

She believes (just as we do) that a lifestyle business is your chance to become a master of your own destiny and to generate an income that funds your ideal lifestyle whatever that is to you

For anyone wanting to spend the rest of their life and not working in the traditional way (aka for someone else) she’s just launched a brand new course The Solopreneur Success Formula

We’ve been through it and know you will enjoy her relaxed style of training and it will get you on the road to creating that lifestyle business you’ve been listening to us both share

If there’s one thing we’ve both learnt over the years if you want to do something learn from someone who has already done what you want to do

We hope that you will be inspired to face the fear and get out of your comfort zone and have a great second half of life

In Jo’s words “be willing to be a bad artist to begin” (we all are)

His career began as a paramedic and later became an anaethetist but after burnout and suffering depression took the decision to re-qualify as a medical doctor proof having realised that money isn’t everything! For a period of time life became much better for him and his wife and he was happy with his lifestyle but yet there was a desire to do and be more…

Then one day a patient changed everything for him and his wife.

He had been unable to help her with traditional medicine then one day she turned up at his practice and shared with him how she had treated herself holistically and she wanted to share with him her story.

That story changed his life and his career

He tried the products for himself and many of the afflictions he had went away and he just knew he had to share this with those who needed to find solutions

He knew nothing about the world of network marketing that his patient had introduced him to just loved that these products worked and wanted to tell everyone about them

What happened next is all too familiar in today’s world unfortunately but there is a happy ending

Lutz and his wife now have the means to help people who traditional medicine has not helped and the results as we know too well ourselves are becoming more accepted

They have created a business they love and they continue to serve people who have health challenges but in a different way

As Lutz says, change is never easy but it’s definitely possible if you are open to doing things differently

We have many years ahead of us and be healthy enough to enjoy those years

Lutz’s tips to starting a side hustle or trying something new :

  1. Find someone you know, like and trust and who have done what you want to do and take advice from them
  2. Make sure that what you do will solve a problem for someone
  3. Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back
  4. Get coaching
  5. Face the fear and work on your mindset and personal development
  6. Give it a try because if you don’t you will never know

Sometimes there are opportunities you don’t even know about – just be open to what is there for you

Thank you for joining us and listening to our chat with Lutz Marten and hope his story inspires you to think about your own life and what may lie ahead for you

You can find him on Facebook : Lutz Marten

We look forward to seeing you on the next Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast

Could You Turn Your Passion, Skill Or Hobby Into An Online Income Stream? https://livingtheretirementlifestyle.com/could-you-turn-your-passion-skill-or-hobby-into-an-online-income-stream/ Wed, 09 Aug 2023 18:30:51 +0000 https://livingtheretirementlifestyle.com/?p=2643 https://livingtheretirementlifestyle.com/could-you-turn-your-passion-skill-or-hobby-into-an-online-income-stream/#respond https://livingtheretirementlifestyle.com/could-you-turn-your-passion-skill-or-hobby-into-an-online-income-stream/feed/ 0 In today's Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast we catch up with Adil Amarsi who has created himself a business through his love of copywriting learned from an early age writing stories for his Dad's business and has gone on to write copy amassing over a billion dollars in revenue for his clients (and he's only 33!) We first met him after attending an internet marketing event some 10 years ago and listened to him share his passion for copywriting over cocktails in the bar (some of the best moments and friendships are meeting people at events over coffee or in the bar 😂). We didn't really know what that was back then! Social media allows us to keep in touch and after chatting recently about a course he's just created we wanted to introduce him to you and for you to hear how you can turn a skill, knowledge (or hobby) that you are insanely passionate about into a business that generates you a full or part time income. Knowledge is in huge demand as people want to know how to do things and you could be harbouring the secret (you'll hear him share an example of a plumber friend)! Join us for the conversation and hear his story and make sure to stay to the end as he has a fabulous tip for you for starting your very first or next income stream... https://vimeo.com/852389034?share=copy There were so many golden nuggets inside this interview and hope you took notes - we've added captions so you can grab those that might help you in considering your next steps or which you can use as you think about starting or pursue your online career. Getting a mentor or finding someone who has done what you want to do is a key takeaway and one we absolutely endorse - without finding a mentor we would not be doing what we are today! The internet is not just for young things as we've proved beyond a doubt (and why we created this podcast and blog) and when you consider the skills, talents and experience those reaching their fifties and beyond hold there's a whole new world of entrepreneurship opening up for them. Think about some of the most successful businesses around today. Chances are, those that came to mind have – or are founded on – strong, simple and easy to understand concepts as Adil mentions referring to Leonardo da Vinci "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." Skipping to the end of the interview we loved Adil's idea of searching Faceless You Tube Channels and found you a blog so you can check that out for yourself. We'll definitely be following up on the travel idea and it's got us thinking of other industries too...

Greg has a fascinating background as you'll hear during our chat but it really does put him in a position to share what he knows about the industry and how retirees can fight back (and not just in America). Told though metaphors and recognizable events Greg shares the story inside his book of how the financial industry created a trillion-dollar empire by withholding information while over-charging and under-servicing retirees regarding the real risks of retirement. It was a very entertaining chat and we think you will see from the fact that despite being the CEO of 3 very successful companies he prefers a more relaxed look and can see why his clients would like him. We especially loved his idea that all retirees should have money set aside for fun, travel, hobbies or anything that they enjoy. https://vimeo.com/814682036 With staggering numbers of Americans living far longer than ever before (and no different to any other developed nation) our retirement savings need to go a lot further and take into account long term health care as well as investments and life savings. As we said above, what we liked best was when he said he encourages his clients to set aside money for their fun time as everyone in their retirement needs to enjoy this time of their life and not just be saving for the future. Greg has definitely stirred up a hornets nest but in a good way and highlighted the reason that the advice that your financial advisor might have given you to get to the top of "Retirement Mountain" probably won’t help get you down. That is what most retirees miss – until it’s too late... but no more! We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did and you maybe go ask the question of your financial advisor 😀 Resources To find out more about Greg you can listen in to his podcast or tune in to his TV show - both known as Expedition Retirement.

It's especially poignant as that meeting was with us and we finally got to catch up with him and ask him to share his story and what happened next... https://vimeo.com/810092844 It's not an unusual story as you've heard (many people we speak to what to quit the 9-5) but what was different is that Faz was so fed up with the 9-5 rat race and not seeing his kids growing up he made it happen. His family was the thing that provided him with his REASON WHY to make the change. A change that has led him to a better life and creating a way to help others who want a better life too just as we have done. Just imagine as he said if the stars had not aligned on that day - 5 seconds either way and life would have been a very different story BELIEF We asked him next about belief "So you must have had a heck of a lot of belief in yourself, a lot of self-belief to go to that exhibition, learn some things, and then on the Monday morning give up your regular income effectively" We asked him how he could do that and he said it was having a huge belief what he was doing and a huge REASON WHY as we've said earlier. To build a future for his family, to create a legacy and to create passive income. MINDSET Next we asked Faz about mindset and how he approached all of this because this is a big breakaway from what he was familiar with. Here's what he said: CHALLENGES, CONNECTIONS & NETWORKING If you have ever had any doubt about the power of challenges, networking and making connections we hope that Faz's story of how he overcame his challenges, the people he met and those who helped him reach his goals will give you the encouragement you need to face your fears and step over the line. Today Faz has authored books on property, has his own company and mentorship program designed for people looking to do what he's done and all because of a chance meeting he could have missed by 5 seconds! We asked him for his final words of encouragement and were not surprised to hear him say "Whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve" And the image from his Facebook just says it all! Faz is a truly humble man and shows much gratitude for the opportunities hard work and connections has given him. We wish him much future success in the world of property. We chose our own favourite from his social media “Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you actually want.” It’s a journey worth taking and a goal worth fighting for. We only live once, and if you’re up for it. Let’s see what you’re capable of in the business world. Design your ideal life..."

We asked him how he could do that and he said it was having a huge belief what he was doing and a huge REASON WHY as we’ve said earlier. To build a future for his family, to create a legacy and to create passive income.

MINDSET

Next we asked Faz about mindset and how he approached all of this because this is a big breakaway from what he was familiar with. Here’s what he said:

CHALLENGES, CONNECTIONS & NETWORKING

If you have ever had any doubt about the power of challenges, networking and making connections we hope that Faz’s story of how he overcame his challenges, the people he met and those who helped him reach his goals will give you the encouragement you need to face your fears and step over the line.

Today Faz has authored books on property, has his own company and mentorship program designed for people looking to do what he’s done and all because of a chance meeting he could have missed by 5 seconds!

We asked him for his final words of encouragement and were not surprised to hear him say

“Whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve”

And the image from his Facebook just says it all!

Faz is a truly humble man and shows much gratitude for the opportunities hard work and connections has given him. We wish him much future success in the world of property.

We chose our own favourite from his social media

“Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you actually want.”

It’s a journey worth taking and a goal worth fighting for.

We only live once, and if you’re up for it. Let’s see what you’re capable of in the business world. Design your ideal life…”

Originally from Australia and now living and working in the UK, we first met her over a decade ago when she entered the world of online entrepreneurship. We knew she had that spark in her and she's proved us right reaching that milestone birthday (she just turned 50) and running a very successful thriving coaching business But we'll let Kylie share her story and hope you will be inspired to move out of your comfort zone and know that there is more to life than sticking with what you've always done and were good at for fear of what lies beyond! https://vimeo.com/748021151 We so loved that moment where Kylie says her boss came into the office bragging about his travel card and she realised he was still coming into the office in his retirement... one of those pivitol moments that made her know for certain it was her time to do something about building her own business to give her the flexibility to travel and start living a life not centred around work! We remembered her coming to an event we had organised showing people how they could start an online business and was in the front row taking notes and smiling like the proverbial cheshire cat. Kylie shares how she was experimenting with different ways to make money online (which is what most people do to be honest) , found what didn't work and how not everyone can be trusted but she didn't ever give up on her dreams and goals She knew that honing her skills would help her reach them and it would take a little time to "find her thing" as she describes it She knew that overnight success and 'getting rich quick' was a fallacy and an investment into personal development was extremely important Which all led to her thinking about the 'missing link' as she refers to it. She was an avid consumer of training but wasn't earning from all that knowledge! How could she change that and provide a service which would bridge the gap for people creating all this training, writing books, producing courses and bring the those all important clients? And a business was born - one that began by helping small businesses get a better presence online and collect those all important leads and learn how to communicate and nurture those those leads until some became their customers or clients. Her next realisation was that there were a lot of successful women making incredible amounts of money using the internet and conversely many were living paycheck to paycheck and had little or no plan for their retirement. Another seed was sown! She shared with us how on a recent economic forum she learnt that something like 60% of the wealth in the UK is going to be owned by women by 2025. It's a massive market and spotting an opportunity that's where her focus is today, championing women entrepreneurs. Plus finding ways to grow faster without so much effort and time and harnessing other ways to generate legacy wealth, all of which she can include inside her coaching business.

Peter is Operations Director of Wildgoose Events, an award winning, multi-million pound global events and licensing business but he's no stranger to facing up to challenges as you'll hear https://vimeo.com/747682605 It's no surprise then that Peter is someone who thinks outside the box when faced with difficulties and the pandemic couldn't have been a worse turn of events for someone who has an events business that involves people coming together! But he had the fortitude along with his co-directors to pivot into the virtual world that we all came to be a part of during 2020/21 and their innovative approach was a win win coming up with products that could help keep teams engaged whilst people were locked down at home utilising zoom. So we came up with escape games and murder mysteries and quizzes, and all sorts of different things that people could do with their teams online. Truth is for a couple of months things were pretty tough but long story short is we came through COVID and had the best two years in business we've ever had and in 2020/21 delivered just over three and a half thousand events all around the world and had the most successful two years in business in terms of revenue and profit as well. We can all learn a great deal from that not least of which is turning what could be abject failure into your fortune and hearing of a success story coming out of COVID is very encouraging! Moving on we asked Peter about side hustles to which he admits having had one or two but the most memorable was the chocolate business from which the title of this podcast originated So how did it all begin? Peter tells us that his wife and daughters are "chocoholics" and so he came up with an idea to help his children "earn" their "pocket" money (it was about giving the girls a hand up rather than a handout he says) by getting them involved in a side hustle he had found selling "wrapped" chocolate bars - for parties, weddings, birthdays, events and it just took off from there. As all things do with family enthusiasm soon dropped off but having created a saleable business, Peter was able to sell it on. That little adventure led to winning an award and for the best new business from the chamber of commerce. Who wouldn't like to create a success story from a little "opportunity" like that and add a philanthropic element too! A side hustle that didn't cost a lot of money, requiring only some creative thinking and making it work ! Culminating in a a perfect lifestyle business that he was able to sell on after the girls left the nest for a life of their own. Proof that it's possible to start a business in your 50's or 60's that doesn't have to be your next Richard Branson business but one that can be fun, make a bit of money from and have the lifestyle you want. Final words form Peter... No matter how old your are or what skills you have if you have a passion and can put some thought behind it who knows what you can achieve.

He wanted to be in control and have choices when he got older And it's at that point you start looking (usually while you are still working at your job) and then the shiny objects pop up and because you don't know any better at this point (been there and done that!) one thing leads to another and you find yourself one of the 'dabblers' making a little bit of money but not enough to write home about. But then something happens... There's a a 'trigger point' For Bob and his wife Rosemary it was a change in Bob's job combined with an unexpected heart problem and a lot of stress... and that led to the decision that this online thing could be the answer but that it would require an investment into learning how it all worked and then being able to focus on it part time until they (well Rosemary actually) could see it working for them The key word as you will hear Bob say was FOCUS. When you sit down to work on your business you can't go jumping around all over the place because suddenly that 6o minutes you had planned to use is gone in an instant! So you decide you'll retire and then you'll have the time to do this "thing" and that's when the realisation kicks in that you have to make it work and that requires discipline and the activities you are involved in have to be results or income producing activities. When you focus on that and have a good mentor to help and guide you then you can start to achieve your goals Now you are "officially retired" we asked what are you doing now? Bob told us he was working now because he wanted to and he was having fun doing it but that the danger was loving it so much you lose track of time and end up compromising your lifestyle and that's not how it should be so you have to set boundaries. Time in the office for work. Time in the home for relationships, family and fun. I want to be that person just like you and Susan where I can say I've been in the trenches and because of that can help fill the gaps for others because of what I know that they won't have to spend endless hours and days trying to find out. How do you encourage entrepreneurship in retirement? We know from our own experience that self belief and 'will it work for me' are the conversations that go on inside the heads of people looking at this entrepreneurship thing so we asked Bob how he approaches this. His answer was quite interesting but actually really sensible. "We become their role models" he said. "Almost but not quite like their parents LOL 🤣 These people are watching you and they need to see that you are doing what they want to do. You've got to share with them the results of what you're doing aka the lifestyle but also that it takes work to achieve those results." What books would you recommend reading for the first time entrepreneur? We asked Bob to share his favourites and like us he went straight for the classics we all know and love - Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, The Slight Edge by Jeff Olsen, The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale. We definitely agree on these and added to it The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. Last words of wisdom We couldn't end our chat without asking Bob for his final words of wisdom.

But then something happens…

There’s a a ‘trigger point’

For Bob and his wife Rosemary it was a change in Bob’s job combined with an unexpected heart problem and a lot of stress… and that led to the decision that this online thing could be the answer but that it would require an investment into learning how it all worked and then being able to focus on it part time until they (well Rosemary actually) could see it working for them

We definitely agree on these and added to it The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann.

Last words of wisdom

We couldn’t end our chat without asking Bob for his final words of wisdom. We loved that he said “keep it simple… There are many moving parts of a business – things you must do every day like generate leads, make sales, grow your audience, build your list… those are the important things that will move your business forward.” Added to that because it’s super important is setting yourself a goal or goals.

Here’s an example Bob uses. If you are in network marketing for example, and your goal is to build that business then the income producing activities you need to focus on are prospecting and showing your company’s presentation to as many people as you can and following up and supporting your team and customers. Do these things first before anything else and you can say you’ve had a successful day. And when you get better it takes less time than in the beginning!

Last but not least don’t work just to work – work with intention and make sure it’s doing something that gives you joy. Something that turns you on or just don’t do it because it won’t work out well.

Gosh there was a lot of wisdom for you to digest during our chat with Bob and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

We read on a recent post of his on Facebook which really sums it up

So grateful for the life we now have.

It wasn’t always like this.

There were many years of living paycheck to paycheck and having more month at the end of our money.

There were lost weekends at work and putting off vacations.

We sacrificed and delayed gratification.

There’s no luck involved in the life we now live.

We deserve it

Here’s that post that inspired us to get Trevor to do this interview and we believe will inspire you to go ahead and create your dream life whatever that is for you

Let’s unpack this

I’m creating my dream life.

It started with this book…

That book was “Unlikely Destinations : The Lonely Planet Story” The autobiography of a young couple who travelled all over the world starting from the UK and then through uncharted territory of Afghanistan, S E Asia and finally arriving in Australia. During that time they started making little travel guide books (way before the internet was really a “thing” as it is today) and The Lonely Planet (their little side gig 😂) was born

Trevor read it back in 2007

We’re reading it at the moment in 2022 but we already knew about them from their amazing website that has been one of the inspirations for us to travel and record our memories…

Reminding us like Trevor that this is the life we want to live

This is the retirement we want to have

For Trevor he says…

I read Unlikely Destinations: The Lonely Planet Story back in 2007.

It’s the autobiography of the couple that started those little travel guide books.

You know…before the internet was really a “thing”.

I remember reading it back then and thinking…

THAT

THAT is the life I want to live.

They travelled from the UK to Afghanistan to S.E. Asia to Australia.

They documented their journey.

The route they took.

The food they ate.

The people they met.

And, when they had a family, they brought their kids on their adventures.

At the time (in 2007) I had NO IDEA how I would make that a reality.

I had only travelled to Ireland (for 1 week) and Mexico on a few all-inclusive vacations.

But, I said to myself then…

You need to CREATE a life where you can live anywhere.

And, still make $$$$.

It started with an INTENTION

But, when your VISION is clear.

You CONSCIOUSLY CREATE your reality.

One.

Step.

At.

A.

Time.

And, it is another piece to the puzzle that will help me manifest my dreams into reality.

While the path is walked one step at a time.

The destination is no longer “unlikely”

Musings Of The Gen X Home Business Hero https://livingtheretirementlifestyle.com/musings-of-the-gen-x-home-business-hero/ Thu, 11 Aug 2022 10:43:11 +0000 https://livingtheretirementlifestyle.com/?p=2262 In this episode of Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast and Web Show we introduce you to long time friend and entrepreneur Diane Hochman who we first met many years ago in London. She's a woman of many talents but she's very well known in the home business arena and a huge proponent of network marketing having started out in 1999 with a network marketing company trying to find a way to be home with her two daughters.  Like many, she did everything she was told to do and when she ran out of warm market she bravely took to the internet to figure out how to meet more people to introduce her business to. That’s where she discovered what we know today as Attraction Marketing and something we use every day in our business... In fact you're listening to, watching or reading this because of that! Time to tune in and listen to her story and make sure to write down those golden nuggets 😀 https://vimeo.com/738336032 How Did You Get Into Network Marketing? A familiar story we're sure but like many of us Diane shares how she was invited by a friend to what turned out to be an opportunity meeting back in 1999 as a mother of two small children and found a way to be at home with them having left her job as an educator at a college and naively had found herself in debt! Having seen the opportunity she went on to build her first home business. She built it traditionally to begin as we're all taught but then found the internet and everything changed and her business grew exponentially via social media in particular. After that she became recognised as an expert in her field and she hasn't looked back Becoming skilled in the field of home business, social media marketing and attraction marketing the world became her stage and is now sought after for events where she is able to fulfil her passion for teaching and training just as we do as well as consultancy and education. And all that from one decision made 23 years ago! Our friend Lisa Grossman sums Diane up very well "To say that I am Diane Hochman's biggest fan would be an understatement. She is a teacher of truths, a master of mentorship who uses her expertise to help others find their voice and articulate their passions in order to create success in their lives... Nobody does it better" How Important Is It To Look At Alternative Income Streams? We're living in challenging times so we asked Diane to give her thoughts on alternative income streams for someone in or approaching their retirement years. She recalls the crash of the economy in 2007/2008 (coincidentally what bought us to the online world) and believes what we are about to experience now (it's 2022 as we write this) will be much more ominous. The truth is that winter will come economically but that's how the seasons of life roll. Your prepare in the summer and autumn for the winter. Those who see what's coming can take advantage of that now and prepare just like the squirrels do. Just like Diane did and just like we did. COVID gave us a whole new way to build a business leveraging the internet and social media and those who are smart enough to recognise that have stayed the course and grown their businesses. On The Topic Of Retirement Diane touched on a very important phrase we hear a lot "it's not fair" - people have worked hard all their lives, it's not fair the economy is like it is right now, my savings plan (401K in the USA) is down. Why is this happening when I'm 60? Why is this happening when I become eligible to become a 'pensioner', 'retired'? And the media is stirring the pot as they do. Truth is 'it's not fair' but what if you could do something now that would cause you to have more money than you ever would have with the original pension or social security because bad time are often the start of something wonderful? What's Next? Twenty three years later, the kids have flown the nest and she's single once more and focused once more in build...

Life in the USA with an enviable career path as a qualified physician, actress, singer, media super star and best selling author she discovered it wasn't fulfilling enough... something was missing Following a near death-like experience this popular physician and medical journalist realized that her past conditioning was causing her to live an inauthentic life that created depression and anxiety Tune in to find out what led to her transition and why she chose to focus on alternative medicine and why she believes some of our best work occurs after 50 https://vimeo.com/736551466 She talks about her ayahuasca ceremony in 2017 in Peru with a beautiful ayahuascera (medicine woman) whose family lineage included many shamans but she wasn't ready for what was being revealed back then but by the time her mother's memory was being eroded by Alzheimers she says she was definitely ready and she shares that one of the highlights of a later ceremony included connecting with the soul of her mother and able to grieve the loss of her memory and the mother she once knew. This was all fascinating to hear as we had read and heard about shamans and ayahuasca ceremonies but never met anyone who could share their personal experience and provide a better understanding of one of those ancient arts now practiced in our modern world Moving on... We chatted about retirement and what science is showing us, about having an ikigai and about the inhabitants of Okinawa where men and women live on average seven years longer than Americans and have the longest disability-free life expectancy on earth. Apparently Okinawa is known as "the land of the immortals" and more people over a hundred years old live there than anywhere else. They don't have a word for retirement but instead have the word ikigai which roughly means "the reason you wake up in the morning" or as Andrea translates it "having a life purpose" We reckon that Andrea has found her ikigai 😀 From her home in France where she runs small retreats she now shows people how to recover from burnout, break-downs & heart break and is truly living her best life helping others live theirs through her proven techniques of mindfulness meditation, neuroscience & positive psychology With all the stress in the world right now we would say she's definitely found her life purpose Final Words Live your purpose - you are a gift to the world - share your presence with passion!

David is far from being your typical "wealth management" advisor which you will definitely discover during our chat because not only is he a financial expert, he's also an extreme sports enthusiast and parallels his love for mountain climbing with an individual's financial journey. Climbing up the mountain is what we do while accumulating wealth during our working years (hopefully) and descending the mountain is what we do during our spending/retirement years. But the descent isn't necessarily the 'easy' part since most climbing accidents actually occur during the descent, and that is also often true, financially speaking, for retirees, too" Tune in and lets hear what he has to say as we discuss his adventures including hitchhiking from Nairobi to Cape Town, Africa and climbing the infamous peaks of the Nepalese Himalayas... and taking part in the historic tearing down the Berlin Wall Let's begin... https://vimeo.com/709471307 The tearing down of the Berlin Wall of course repeated itself metaphorically speaking 20 years later when the financial worlds came tumbling down in 2008 and had a detrimental effect on all of us especially those of us in or approaching their later life retirement years. The truth is as David says, you have to plan for the second half of the journey because there are no shortcuts to any place worth going! You have to keep climbing. Photo Credit Sebastian Pena Lambarri Unsplash In Chapter 1 he begins with "Imagine that you're at Mt Everest Base Camp and you've come across a group of mountaineers about to start their expedition to the summit. What's your ultimate goal?" you ask them... How would they answer? If you're like most people you probably assume that their ultimate goal is getting to the top And you'll find out if you continue reading this chapter that you would be wrong because it's the second half of the journey you have to plan for... the descent! Love that he's on a quest to visit at least 100 countries in his lifetime. Like us, seeing the world through other cultures’ eyes is an integral part of helping us and him keep all things in perspective as we navigate . We all know that there are endless books on how to accumulate wealth and how to get out of debt. However, few resources teach what to do once you have reached the top, even though you are faced with unique and potentially devastating risks as you begin the second half of your financial journey. This book was written to fill that gap. Through an unexpected melding of travel and even family stories coupled with financial survival tips, Failure Is Not an Option will lay out the eight fundamental risks every retiree faces and help you create more certainty in the uncertainty of retirement. In the process, it will help you achieve far greater financial peace of mind, since just like climbing mountain those who recognize and address these risks are most likely to safely and successfully complete their journey. Don Yaeger sums up the the book with his quote "A 'Road Less Traveled' meets 'Think & Grow Rich'." Last words... Help yourself first, so you're in a position to help others How To Connect & Follow David for lessons, tips and advice on how you can live the life you’ve always imagined in your retirement years.

Andrew is the author of "The Way Out" - 7 Steps To Financial Freedom Through Network Marketing. We've read a lot of books on the topic of entrepreneurship and in particular on network marketing but his approach to the topic is down to earth, honest and no nonsense and why he believes it's a great model for someone wanting to generate a passive income in or for their retirement. Time to sit back and listen to what he has to say https://vimeo.com/718656009 Andrew's story and his success comes from his approach to an industry that is often times much maligned because people think it's so easy they don't take time to realise that like any other, a network marketing business is a business. Putting that aside, we know from experience that the one thing that retirees and pre-retirees need is passive income It's something we learnt about long before we joined the industry We call it The Three Legged Stool. Andrew calls it The Big Lake In case like us you like to read about things here's what Andrew says (and with kind permission we quote from his book) It's a fascinating way to understand the importance of multiple streams of income... Something we should all have  The Big Lake The vast majority of people (and you may be one of them) have only one stream feeding the lake and many streams sucking it dry (life costs, home loads, car payments, debt, rent, food, insurance, credit card payments, holidays etc) Human nature is to live in the now matching the water coming in with streams coming out.  You get a pay rise - find another way to spend it! If you want more water in the lake there are really only two options Find a bigger stream to feed the lake or reduce the number of creeks and streams coming out of the lake Work hard or spend less Simple maths No one wants to work more their whole life We didn't want to Which is why we fixed things by introducing a second stream to the top of the lake back in the days and continue to do so right up to today To begin the first stream can be your job (just as it was ours) and your second stream can be an online business  Now you have two streams feeding the lake instead of one  Two is always better than one The more streams of income coming in, the bigger the safety net if there's a drought upstream. If you were to lose your job, you have a secondary income stream that can continue to feed the lake in the meantime. This is the key to financial security And in your retirement years this is super important Who knows how long we will live to and we sure as heck don't want the money to run out before we do! You can't have pure health when you're lying in bed stressing about paying the bills and that's an unfortunate reality of society today and it's hitting people in retirement more than anyone Next we asked Andrew "Is Network Marketing A Great Model For Generating A Passive Income?" Andrew shares how you can start a network marketing business whatever age you are and it's unbeatable in this world. If you want to make the commitment, if you stay in the game, and you do the work, you can then use that to create more streams of income. You can create passive income. You can create your own economy. And that's incredible. The network marketing model has evolved to allow people to create cash flow into their life almost immediately and that's phenomenal Let's Talk About Your Book - The Way Out "Why did you write it and who is it for?" Andrew shares how he was at one of his first major events seeing people having achieved success and said to his wife "how can anyone mess this up". Unfortunately Andrew has seen and we have seen that many people do mess it up. They don't treat it as a business and/or they don't fully understand what it means to run a business and that's such a great shame.

He decided to do something he’d never quite imagined at his time of life and moved in to take care of his 95-year-old Mum who had dementia and shares with us the moving story of their ten-year caregiving journey which he documented in his book Winter Stars. https://vimeo.com/709468777 By the end of this decade, 74 million Americans will be over the age of 65, including every member of the Baby Boom generation and as a nation they are not alone. The pandemic prompted more Americans just as it has us Brits to consider caring for their parents at home, but as Iverson learned, the gritty, life-changing reality caregiving delivers requires more than good intentions. He didn’t know that his mom’s dementia would pose more challenges than his Parkinson’s. He didn’t know he’d be capable of getting so angry. He didn’t know that becoming a caregiver means experiencing love and loss, anger and insight—usually when exhausted and often on the same day. And he didn’t know that moving in with his Mum would challenge and change him more than any other life experience. For the vast number of families who are confronting —or will soon confront—a caregiving journey, Winter Stars offers an intimate, unvarnished portrait of the challenges, choices, and life lessons that lie ahead. As you will hear during our chat we too are facing that same challenge with our Mum. And in all honesty getting hold of Dave's book (which we found quite by luck during our research into caregiving) put into perspective our next choices and literally saved us from the mental anguish of the decision we knew we need to make You can read more and help us reach more people who suffer the anguish of caregiving by visiting Dave on his website - Dave Iverson Author All royalties from the sale of Winter Stars go to support Parkinson’s and eldercare organizations. Excerpt From Chapter 14 "It's Time" … In that gentle late-night light, my mom’s features seemed to soften. As she lost weight, the flesh receded, and her wrinkles smoothed. Her face subtly reformed, taking on the more angular features of her youth, her jaw line firm and thrust forward, her nose more prominent. She was really quite beautiful.I didn’t feel regret. I didn’t feel relief. I just felt like I was where I wanted to be, accompanied, as ever, by Eileen and Sinai.Late one night, I peeked into my mom’s bedroom before entering.  Eileen was sitting by her side with her back to me. I watched for a moment before I realized that Eileen was wearing her prayer shawl and holding her Muslim prayer beads. She was murmuring softly in Hindi. I backed away. The next morning, I told Eileen how touched I was by what I’d seen. She smiled widely and said, “Well, Sinai taught me the Lord’s Prayer, so sometimes I say that, too.” We don't know about you but that was just beautiful 🦋 We dedicate this podcast to all caregivers and in memory of our Mum who passed away on 31st May 2022 aged 92 Thanks for joining us for a our open, thoughtful and meaningful chat with Dave Iverson on this edition of the Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast and hope that if you are ever challenged as we and he were that his book gives you the much needed clarity to make the decision you need to make.

For those of us now in the new season of life we call retirement this is the second mountain top time where we look for purpose and meaning in life and want to do some of those things we've not had the chance to do before One of those as we discussed might just be starting a new business, becoming an entrepreneur to either support a cause or charity, give us purpose or maybe out of necessity when finding our retirement savings fall short!

Like us Eric had a defining moment during a business trip and a drive from Sydney to Canberra and gave up his international corporate life to pursue his passion for teaching self-leadership skills. The Three Critical Foundations To Being Fit For Purpose Whilst you might not think SLEEP, EXERCISE & DIET are relevant then listen in. Exercise as we discussed is The HOPE Molecule and if we think about the instruction we received from the government in the UK during our national lockdown due to the pandemic in 2020 - daily exercise was the ONE thing we were advised we should do. Certainly we can look back on 2020 and it was our daily walk that gave us hope for the future and got us through the weeks and months that followed when our whole retirement lifestyle business model was challenged! The message truly is that we can meet challenges and pursue our biggest reams in life - the quality of our lives depends to a large extent on how well we meet our challenges - the ones we choose and the ones that choose us!

How he had a dream of living on board his yacht with his wife and sailing to many places around the world... the courage it took to to leave everything behind and start a new kind of life and a business to support his dreams He knew that eLearning and online education was a booming business so he embraced this opportunity and invested in his own education to expand his skillset just as he did in his traditional business as an architect in Sweden How like us he realised that unless he made a change that he would be working in that business until the end of his days. He says that when you open your eyes to what is around you and have the courage to take the steps to follow your dreams anything is possible We read in a recent Facebook post of his this quote "Sometimes you just need to take some steps back and have a closer look at life" We couldn't agree more Arthur and his wife are living the retirement lifestyle and to sum up what they do to support their dreams as "Work like a captain and play like a pirate!"

Andrew Priestley is a bestselling author of The Money Chimp, Starting and Awareness; an award winning business leadership coach and a Top 100 UK entrepreneur mentor so you're going to find he has a lot to say about starting and running a business... no shiny objects here! We were honoured to have been asked to contribute a chapter to Retire Inspire along with 20 other experts from a wide variety of disciplines all of whom share their best advice on how professionals can achieve a totally fulfilling retirement Let's hear what Andrew Priestley has to say when we ask him for his wisdom on retiring baby boomers starting a business https://vimeo.com/538629768 Key Points From Our Interview With Andrew Priestley Andrew points out that our passion alone is highly unlikely to give us the lifestyle or fortunes we crave no matter how well meaning we aim to be. We need to have thought things through with a business head on if we want it to be successful We couldn't have said it any better! Why Do You Want To Do It (sic become an entrepreneur/start a business)? What's Your Idea? Who's It For? What's The Business Model? What Are Your Values? The truth is that Boomers are healthier and living longer. They expect to travel. They expect to do things that are exciting. They expect to do things that matter and make a difference. They want entertainment and lifestyle choices. Whole industries are emerging around property downsizing, health and wellness, aged care, medicine, travel, security, finance and law. What skills or experience do you have that people want or need and will create you an income. What's the motivator for wanting to start a business? Is it because you're running out of money or is it because you can't imagine doing nothing much with your time when the 9-5 comes to an end? So many questions to ask yourself... And for those who could take their skills and start a coaching business Andrew gives you some amazing training - we got so many golden nuggets from that and we hope you did too Resources Andrew mentioned some of his books during our interview.

How at the peak of his career as a renowned violinist and following a major stroke and no longer able to play professionally he became a teacher. No ordinary teacher mind you. Overcoming all odds even though he can no longer play professionally Dmitry teaches aspiring instrument makers how to create instruments that stand out from the crowd just as he has done with his beloved violin. Listen in as we tell you how we first met in London (we didn't even know his story then) and be inspired by Dmitry's story of overcoming adversity and starting a business that he's passionate about This Is Dmitry Badiarov's Story https://vimeo.com/519070073 Like many of us these days circumstances force us to change our lives for any number of reasons When Dmitry learned the devastating news that he was unlikely to play the violin again, he felt as though he had had his purpose ripped away from him. At the time in the depth of despair he was unable to see a future for himself but encouraged by his wife (also a talented musician) he realised he could in fact generate an income teaching something he knew and was passionate about - instrument making. He has now gone on to make a name for himself in this new niche.

We asked him to share how he became that expert and the lessons he learned along the way while he was honing his skills. There's some golden nuggets you'll want to capture and remember as you pursue your "retirement business" idea and he's got some words of wisdom here for you so make sure to read to the end. How To Create Buyer Desire Interview With Todd Brown https://vimeo.com/481810439 We've added Closed Captions [CC] on the video so you can read as well as listen Here's just some of the topics that you'll hear us talking about. You just have to listen in and find the ones that peak your interest or that you always wanted to know about. For instance:- Todd's Story and how he got introduced to the world of direct response marketingThe difference between marketing and sellingHow to create buyer desire - it's not about your product or service What you know and have experience of can be a businessWhat we both learned from Dan Kennedy and why the basic marketing principles remain as current today as they were when he first taught themThe difference between strategies and tacticDon't forget where you came from and what you know GOLDEN NUGGETS Marketing is everything that you do that creates demand for your product, your service, your offer before you even talk about your product, your service, your offer... it all about shaping the belief of your prospect and turning their desire into that demand! Marketing when done right makes the selling portion easy and sets up the sale of the product so you don't have to hardcore sell or apply aggressive, obnoxious 'in-your-face' tactics... you just have to present a superior, irresistible no-brainer offer after you've led the prospect to want your thing. That's the difference between marketing and selling That's what they care about. If you don't have that, you don't have a marketing campaign and you don't have a sales message Differentiation in marketing and business is critical. Today there are only two ways to differentiate specifically in your marketing. The first is through your promise... what's the outcome, the transformation, the result. What's the change in your prospect's life that you're promising. What people want to know is what's going to be different about my life? How is this going to fix my problem. How's this going to alleviate my pain. How's this going to fulfil an unmet need or desire in my life. What you need in order to differentiate yourself from the masses is to provide a unique mechanism (how your product or service uniquely works) and explains why it is THE BEST solution for them. You'll hear Todd tell you how this can be applied to absolutely any product or service. Through the education you provide during the process they see that your mechanism is the superior option and when you present your offer they are thankful and you haven't even talked about the features, the price point, the terms or the guarantee Look this is quite a deep topic for someone new to marketing but why not get it right from the outset. We'll invite Todd back to go into it in a bit more detail next year because it's seriously the stuff that matters and we're truly grateful that we learned it and apply it in our business (as you'll hear) and it gives us the edge. You see the transformation our clients and prospects want are to have the retirement lifestyle that they projected for themselves whilst they were working 40 hours a week for 40 years and if they haven't got it they have to find a vehicle too get the required money to be able to have the experiences they want.

Join us on this edition of Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast with "retirement" guest expert Dave Hughes as we talk about this topic and explore the reason behind his favourite new word for retirement. Interestingly it was his article "It's Time To Retire The Word "Retirement" that prompted us to reach out and ask him to tell us what prompted him to write it and give you his insight. TIME TO RETIRE THE WORD RETIREMENT I like the word "retirement". I always have. During my working years, the more I planned for and anticipated my retirement, the more I became optimistic about it.Don't get me wrong, retirement isn't a panacea any more than everyday life during your working years is. There will be good days, bad days, and average days. Good things will happen, bad things will happen, and sometimes it will seem like nothing happensMore than anything else, I cherish my freedom, which will be there no matter what kind of day I might be having... Dave Hughes https://vimeo.com/481992669 But back to that word “retirement” and all the baggage that may come with it. Dave introduces you to what he believes is a much more optimistic word to describe the possibility-filled opportunity that comes once you leave work behind. His preferred term for retirement is “renaissance.”  We rather like that don't you? The modern meaning of renaissance is a renewal of life, vigor, interest, rebirth, revival. Like Dave that sums up what retirement should be all about and we're sure our living the retirement lifestyle podcast listeners and readers of our blog will agree! We also agree on the importance of thinking about what you would like your retirement to look like and make a plan to create it. We talk more on this inside our book Living The Retirement Lifestyle which you can download here You can connect with David at Retire Fabulously here and also find out more about his books The Quest For Retirement Utopia, Smooth Sailing Into Retirement, and our favourite Design Your Dream Retirement where he talks more on the topic of whether it's time to retire the word retirement Thanks for joining us on Living The Retirement Lifestyle.

It's a wonderful story about finding your inner strength and confidence Listen in as she take you on her journey and inspires you towards roping the storms of life like a cowgirl Right now in the midst of the global pandemic as we write this and record the interview there's never a more important time to find the motivation to change your life and leave behind anxiety, worry and fear. The cowgirls gave Jan the mission and purpose to write the book and through her words to reach out to those experiencing the absolute worst storms of their lives... that time where they are really worried, scared and feel alone in their struggles. We hope you enjoy listening to Jan's story and know that you are the only one who has control of your life! Roping The Storms Of Life Like A Cowgirl We were very much reminded hearing Jan's story and her work in the hospice as a nurse, of the 'Regrets Of The Dying' by Bronnie Ware who worked as a nurse in pallative care. Words that have gone on to inspire so many people since most especially those seeking a new route in life. People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone’s capacity for growth. Some changes were phenomenal.  I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me I wish I hadn’t worked so hard  I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends  I wish that I had let myself be happier Jan's phrase which sums her up so well is "always keep your sparkle" You can connect with her on Facebook and get doses of cowgirl inspiration right there. Her book Roping The Storms Of Life Like a Cowgirl is designed to inspire you to develop that "cowgirl" mentality and get you past adversity and trauma in your love and move you forwards with a positive form of thinking.

Listen in as he shares his story and the lessons from becoming a decorated aviator earning a six figure income and a young family to facing bankruptcy following the collapse of the real estate marketing in the recession of 2008 https://vimeo.com/476644981 Through sharing his story and how he transitioned into entrepreneurship you'll discover that facing the fear of change can bring about a whole new perspective on life and actually you might find with the right attitude towards change a whole new world will open up just as it did for JT and for us. As of now, there's no way to know if there's another recession around the corner. You may be able to kind of predict it. But when you're making a decision about your transition in life, your career transition, you're thinking what might happen, but there's really no way to know. So you can't grasp the past because it's gone. You can't grasp the future because it hasn't happened. Really the only thing you can go off of is what's in front of you now. The thing I would encourage people to do is you have to make decisions and choices, two different things based on what you have internally. Skills, experience, wisdom that have come from your past, the vision, the hopes, the dreams, the plans that help you build the future. That's what you have right now. And if you focus on those things and you build your future around the things you've learned from the past, the skills you've developed, then you have a really great shot at making whatever you want to have happen in the future come at you as opposed to making a decision based on what you think you should do...It's about what you're going to do now based on who you are as a person, what you've developed skill-wise and wisdom-wise. On the topic of the current pandemic "We can't put Pandora, you know, Pandora's box is open. We can't close it, we're here, this is what we got" We can't close it, we're here, this is what we got. "I wish that I didn't have this." "I wish this didn't happen." And that's a very reasonable and natural thing. And I think it happens to every single person at some point, whether you've hit threshold and you're fed up and you're burnt out, or maybe it's the very first part and it's that shock and awe of, "Oh my gosh, this is happening." HOW TO FACE THE FEAR OF CHANGE - THE WISH, WANT, WILL FORMULA Well, the next question is, "Okay, so you may wish for this, but what do you want to have happen?" It takes the focus off of the shock and awe or the trauma or whatever it is. You may not love what you want, but what do you want? And I think so often we don't give ourselves that grace, we don't give ourselves that headspace, that opportunity to actually go, "Well, what do I really want?" "Well, I want for this virus to go away." Okay, that's awesome. Now, let me ask you a question, inside your realm of control, what you can control, what do you want? That's different. Now we have some power. We've taken the power back. Before when we say, "I wish." We give our power away. And that's where the fear comes in, because we're like, we feel powerless. "There's nothing I could do about this! This is so frustrating, I feel overwhelmed." Well, guess what? When you say, "Well, what is it you want?" Now we bring it back into what we can control. Okay, but what can you control? What do you want for yourself? Now we take a deep breath and we think like a leader. And we start talking about what we can control inside our lives. Once you get control of what you really want, In this episode of Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast we introduce you to one of our great friends and mentors JT DeBolt and ask him to share his wisdom around facing the fear of change and transitioning from something you loved and has ended and ...

He shares some wonderful insights into his journey, how he became an author and why a subtle shift in focus is not only a more uplifting and fulfilling way of conducting business but the most financially profitable way. Although for years he was best known for his book Endless Referrals, over the past few years it’s his business parable,  The Go-Giver (co-authored with John David Mann) that has captured the imagination of his readers... and that's how we first met many years ago. https://vimeo.com/403722465 We had just got a copy of The Go-Giver and everything just fell into place so we recorded a video (Facebook Live didn't exist then) straight on to our Facebook profile. It automatically appeared on Twitter and Bob being the Go-Giver that he is immediately responded. Our relationship was cemented forever. Bob's story really is one of those never ending stories and we could have spoken for hours but we wanted to grab those golden nuggets of wisdom for you We believe he sums it up when he talks about entrepreneurship in a changing world where it's important to think not about the money but about being of service to others. How to focus on the other person and how their life will be touched through the product or service you are selling or referring and the additional assistance and help you are able to provide in the course of the transaction. In other words "how can I be of value to another human being" There is so much value he provides throughout our time together and hope that you drink it all in and take what he shares and think about what you could do in your retirement years that might be of service to others while financially rewarding Bob is a huge supporter of what he refers to as the 'Free Enterprise' system, believing that the amount of money you make is directly proportional to how many people you serve. We couldn't agree more. Plus of course he's a cat lover just like us You can find out more and get in touch with Bob via his website and learn how he teaches business professionals how to leverage their network of everyday contacts into a never ending stream of new prospects. If you're looking at entrepreneurship in retirement we would highly recommend you pick up a copy of the Go-Giver and learn though this wonderful parable how a subtle shift in focus helps you provide exceptional value, expand your influence and dramatically increase your income. If you want access to his mini-course you can request it from him here For our part, If you’re struggling to create a life where you feel happy and successful, doing that you love and feel cherished by the people you work with then maybe it's time for a change. The world is hectic and everyone is a little scared right now and feeling discouraged and frustrated so maybe it's time for a new adventure We absolutely love that we can show people the way to entrepreneurship and find the right vehicle for them All it takes is a decision to reach out and get in touch with us Thanks for joining us for The Go Giver Way If you haven't yet downloaded our free book Living The Retirement Lifestyle - Your Secret To Living The Dream Lifestyle you can grab your copy here It's packed with ideas and a calculator so you can be better prepared for your retirement and take action now.

She's passionate about wealth creation and entrepreneurship and particularly for those entering a new chapter in their lives. As kids, we were told, “the sky’s the limit!” and “you can be anything you want to be!” But as you grew up, you slowly started to put limitations on yourself. Life happened and you got into debt or thought that you were never going to make enough money to do what you really wanted…but the dreams didn’t go away ~ Sharon Lechter We're here with Sharon to re-ignite those dreams and give you some words of encouragement from our many years of experience We began the interview by asking for her to comment on a statement made by one of our previous guests Robert Laura who we spoke to earlier this year on the Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast I believe starting a business for retirement will become one of the biggest concepts in the 21st Century" "I think more people particularly with what's going on in the world this year are understanding that they need to be in control of their own lives. They need to be in control of their own financial lives and it's easier if you have assets (assets are sexy she says!) Too many people chase money. I say invest our time into buying, building and creating income producing assets because when you have assets that are generating revenue for you, retirement is no longer a problem for you. When you have assets working for you then you get back time and that allows you to enjoy your later years" https://vimeo.com/465853361 Naturally we talked about a lot more things and had her answer some wonderful questions submitted by our friends and subscribers "What should I look for when starting my business? When I search for ideas just about everything I see seems too good to be true and I'm totally confused" -John from the UK recently retired after a successful corporate career and wanting to do more in his retirement. He's also conscious that his pension may not outlive him so he wants to do something worthwhile and generate an additional income At 6:14 Sharon answers his question suggesting he looks at what she calls the personal success equation. When you're trying to figure out what business to invest in it's good to look at your passion and your talent. Your passion can be something you love or something to get mad about. She uses her own example to explain " my passion was I was mad when teaching kids about money. My talent was my accounting background and all of my publishing background. The success equation in Three Feet From Gold will show you how this works Combine Passion, something that makes your heart sing, with Talent, something you excel in by the right Association with successful people or organisations, and Action concrete steps you can take toward your goal, and then add your Faith, the unwavering belief in yourself, and you will have your own unique Success Equation You can download your gift from Sharon PersonalSuccessEquation.com It will help you walk through your own personal success equation and challenge you on things that you might want to do Today successful businesses solve a problem or a need. We have a lot of problems today and a lot of needs. So we have a lot of opportunity. Most people see them as obstacles but you can turn these into opportunities. Train yourself to recognise how you can solve a problem or serve a need and then you're going to help a lot of others as well as helping yourself financially! We couldn't agree more because after all that's how we've run our business the past decade helping people in or approaching retirement start an online business to fill the income gap and have the lifestyle goals they set for themselves way before they reached retirement.

The business was good but we had no time and no balance of work and family life.  This was not how we envisaged our later life - our retirement lifestyle - so we set about planning for our retirement... Long story short, our retirement lifestyle plans were blown out of the water when the Global Financial Crisis hit the world and we lost much of our retirement nest egg. We could have buried our heads in our hands and given up on our plans (and we're human so we did for a while) but after some deliberation we also realised it offered us an opportunity and led us to pursuing a career in the online world as "educators" as Jenni calls us. The decision to follow this path has fulfilled our dreams of a retirement business and lifestyle of time freedom and travel and best of all we're in a position to serve those just like us. We can only urge you to make your lifestyle dreams come true by taking action as early as possible and not procrastinate on your retirement planning decisions. They may not be easy to make and we cover some tips on that in our book which you can download here. We're sure it will help! Until next time...

That's quite an achievement we're sure you'll agree! His "goal" today (sorry for the pun) is to continue to grow that business and support football education as well as to help other pro athletes and entrepreneurs to develop their own sports brand He's clearly been a student of our perfect avatar training! He now writes on the topic of mental strength and self help drawing on his experience and knowledge One of our favourites is this : How To Become A Goal Achiever How to become a Goal Achiever is about the success traits of not only writing down your goals, but more importantly hitting them.Sadly, for most people they never hit their goals and for the most part it is not their fault because they have never been taught to write down their goals properly.So How to become a Goal Achiever and not just another goal setter, is my personal blue print that has helped me achieve my dream of becoming a professional goalkeeper (soccer), helped me build a substantial property business, helped me write a series of books that sell all around the work and that also helped me build the biggest business in my sports niche Other titles include : How To Day Dream Your Way To Success And Get Anything You Want How To Become Better Than Average And Achieve Anything You Want Dream - Believe - Plan - ACT! How These 4 Words Can Change Your Life How to Win in Life Using a Sports Mindset The Six Figure Routine We were blessed to meet Ray and his wife in 2015 when they attended a training event we were running in London and not only did they become clients but firm friends and we continue to support and work together to this day He's got a new podcast due to launch so watch out for that as knowing Ray it will be educational, fun and entertaining We rather liked when checking into Wikipedia during our research that he has a rather unusual claim to fame having unofficially broken the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest number of best men at his wedding in 2014 - 147! All were his current goal keeper students at the time We hope you enjoyed the interview and that you too are inspired to think about what your knowledge, experience and past career might bring to others and give you joy in your retirement... as well of course as an income to continue your endeavours To find out more about Ray and his adventures go to RayNewland.com Thanks for joining us and we look forward to seeing you on our next podcast and webshow If you haven't yet downloaded our free book Living The Retirement Lifestyle - Your Secret To Living The Dream Lifestyle you can grab your copy here It's packed with ideas and a calculator so you can be better prepared for your retirement and take action now.

That was the headline of an article written in July 2017 for Forbes by Robert Laura and a follow up to one of Forbes most downloaded articles back in 2014 "Would You Join A Multi-Level Marketing Company For Retirement Income" also written by the guest on today's Living The Retirement Lifestyle podcast. https://vimeo.com/413150460 As we discussed during the interview, as far as the retirement savings crisis is concerned, more and more people are coming to terms with the fact that they probably aren't going to be able to save enough money to see them through to a ripe old age and there's a obvious need to find alternative ways to save more or generate a supplementary income either in or approaching retirement. We're not here to advocate network marketing as the only solution because there are many but it remains a good choice given other benefits aside "safety" on the Maslows Heirarchy of Needs such as self-actualization, love and belonging and esteem Maslows Heirarchy Of Needs During our interview we asked Robert to expand on his statement in his 2017 Forbes article about the trends he's studied regards the network marketing business model which suggests that "network marketing can play a crucial role in how well baby boomers and others transition into retirement...that once you strip out the financial aspects you get a very different picture... retirement is not all about money." A successful transition from work-life to home-life is more than about money and there are plenty of people with substantial amounts of money saved for retirement that are completely miserable. with many wanting to learn new things and be a part of a community. From the clients and people he speaks with Roberts has found that they are always reading, posting and sharing something inspirational... have goals and use the products they are selling to improve the way they look and feel. Add that to the fact that network marketing companies have local meetings and annual events members get out of the house, build knowledge, develop new skills and have the opportunity to meet new people. From our experience in building an online business education business ourselves and travelling around the world speaking and training we see these two distinct groups of people - those who are there to learn how to generate income in their retirement and those who just want to socialise with like minded people.

He says if you imagine this - your life as you get older - its a great analogy and fitting for you reading this if you're of retirement age or nearing it... When you're in your twenties , you're at Base Camp. It doesn't matter if you screw up and make bad decisions... you can recover. You've got time on your side but as you start climbing and ou are in your 20's and 30's you're pretty much less than two or three hundred feet up. It's not a big deal. If you packed the wrong jacket you're not going to die. If you wear the wrong shoes, you're not going to die. But when you're 25,000 feet and you didn't take oxygen. If you don't have the right jacket and there's a storm coming and you get hit by that storm, you're dead! Financially you're dead. Emotionally you're dead; you might even be physically dead with all that's going on right now because you made bad decisions at the bottom which impacts you at the top. Many of us are not thinking ahead. We're not thinking about what happens when I'm 50, 65 or 70 when I'm at the top of the mountain... what happens if I get hit by a storm...You need someone to be saying to you "you need this, you need oxygen, you need the right climbing boots, we need survival tents" You can download and read the full transcript because there's some really insightful information and which could well help you survive the after effects of this coronavirus pandemic financially as well as physically and emotionally Make no mistake the world will be very different as we discussed on the show This coronavirus pandemic will pass The world will change "Work from home" "Webinar" ...and...

BUT it’s what we do now though that will help shape our future One of our mentors said this :- “Don’t use the crisis as an excuse to pause your growth, relationship with your mentors and investment in yourself. Now is the time, to level up your skills, lean into your mentors and market yourself when everyone else is pulling back.
