In 1908 the conspiracy began …
The UK government introduced it’s first “state pension” to help people cope with old age…it was paid to men only when they reached the age of 70 and back then the average life expectancy in 1908 was 47 years old!
In the United States a few years before, New York City established the first public pension plan for it’s police officers and fire fighters but only if you were injured in the line of duty. In 1878 it was amended to provide police officers with a lifetime pension once they reached 55 years of age with 21 years of service and the average life expectancy was less than 40 years old!
This was probably not intentional at the time but as time has gone on the situation has gone from bad to worse and governments around the world have realised that their social security pension schemes are bust. In the UK funds will run out by 2032 and the US by 2034 – that’s about 15 years time! (Sources: GAD & OASDITF)
Add to this that saving has become more difficult if not impossible, investment returns are very low and provision for your retirement has been dumped fairly and squarely in YOUR lap…
We guess that’s maybe why you’re here reading this!
You’ve realised that “Retirement” has changed…
You’ve realised the world has changed
Our grandparents were probably the last generation to benefit from the “old money advice” – the one that says work hard for 40 years, save for your retirement, stop work at 60 or 65 and live comfortably on the fruits of your labour for the last few years of your life.
Let’s introduce you to “Retiring The New Way”
We’ll introduce you to a simple and unconventional method of creating a solid retirement income whatever age you are…
You’ll discover a new and very different method of creating income for your retirement – one that you control and one that fits with your lifestyle…you will no longer be dependent on others for your financial future
So why haven’t I heard about this method before you ask?… it’s probably because, like us, you never knew it existed
The world has changed and the world of retirement has too…the internet arrived and has created a whole new world of opportunity and way of doing things.
What you’re about to discover is not theory. We’ve had a successful online business for the last 9 years generating us a six-figure “pension”. We started at age 57 and it’s what we’ve taught to hundreds and hundreds of people, most of whom are just like us in their 50’s or 60’s, building and growing exciting online businesses all around the world or using their existing skills and knowledge to create a retirement income.
If you’ve never heard of online entrepreneurship then you’re in for a very pleasant surprise
Today, retirement is not about reaching a certain age and then stopping.
60’s the new 40 and there’s still so much to do and great experiences to have, we want to remain active, involved in new challenges and ideas and do things we’ve never done before because we’ve not had the time. Retirement is a continuation of life not a destination point marked by a stop sign.
Today you have to open your mind, broaden your horizons, stop looking to the past for solutions and realise there are different, more exciting ways to generate your retirement income.
You need to believe and invest in yourself, your passions, your knowledge and your experience. And know we’re here to help you.
In our next series of articles we’ll talk about some of the options open to you that we have researched so you can see how much choice you really have.
To be honest we were first inspired by reading some of the stories from people like you and us in International Living
Ambergris Caye, Belize
Koh Samui, Thailand
Bocos del Toro, Panama
Maybe those don’t appeal to you but maybe they do?
We’d love to know where your favourite destination would be
