That headline grabbed our attention right away but as we read on it made a lot of sense
“The biggest mistake retirees make is giving up their active income. You’re likely thinking about retirement or it’s something you’re working toward. I imagine that looks something like never having to work again and spending your days on the golf course, at the beach, or with Grand-Kids.
And while that’s fine for a while, take it from someone who’s tried to retire three times over the past 20 years (and even had the money to do so comfortably):
The biggest mistake retirees make is giving up their active income.
By active income, I mean money you make through your labour, through a business you own. Passive income, on the other hand, is what you get from Social Security, a pension, or a retirement account.
It’s a very common mistake. And a serious one.
I’m not saying you should give up on the idea of retirement. I’m saying you should think of retirement differently. Instead of spending 80% of your time working for money and 20% having fun, you can spend 20% of your time working (why not make it a new venture you’ve been daydreaming of or a second career?) and 80% having fun—and be free from financial worries….”
Now we didn’t write that – it was written by Multi-Millionaire Mark Morgan Ford in an article published in a magazine we subscribe to called International Living … incidentally, the magazine that fuelled our fire and desire for creating a retirement that was right for us and as we later came to discover one that many many others were seeking too.
Now in our early 60’s we saw we needed to make some adjustments to our life to achieve our goals (travel, freedom, time)
We saw that an online business was the answer but it has only been in recent years that we’ve been able to fully realise that dream.
These days there is a world of opportunity available to you with so many different choices of making money online part time or full time (whatever you need to do or want to do)
We’ve aligned ourselves with the best of the best in the field of online business programs and entrepreneurs providing both education and opportunity and will continue to grow that portfolio so we can offer the ‘best of the best‘ to those who see that life in or approaching retirement can be both lucrative and fun just as we do.
Ultimately it comes down to being willing to set ourselves new challenges and decide what we want from our retirement and the latest chapter in our life.
Speaking of chapters, we’ve written a book “The Ultimate Retirement Lifestyle” where you can delve into the secret to living your dream retirement and it’s yours to go through at your leisure. We hope you’ll be inspired with new ideas to fulfil your personal dreams and goals. Just pop your name and email in the box here and it will be winging it’s way to you
