Working after retirement


life coachingI have been thinking about this for a while since I came across a course about becoming a life coach. You probably know someone who is a life coach - or someone who uses one.

It's an intriguing concept. A coach (personal coach, life coach, business coach and others) is a person who helps another person (the client) achieve certain goals. For us with tons of experience, I believe we can offer ...

We all negotiate every day. It could be with customers, spouses, suppliers, investors and so on. In business - even a part-time retirement business we negotiate. At out age (!) we have some experience, and a few favorite "tricks". Like my emotional influence tactics I am writing about. However, let's just go back to a few basic missteps you can avoid:

Saying "Between".
It sound good. It's comfortable. It's nice to say "We can ...

Many people, including retired folks have hobbies they make a few bucks at. I do in my photography and entertainment. Others make cupcakes on the side, some have a blog or two montetized. We all hope to make enough to at least pay for our hobby stuff such as cameras and so on.

When is it time to turn it into a business? Making real money? First off - you have to want to ...

PersuasionFor years I have been interested in what makes people go along with requests from others. Why do we buy stuff we don't need? Why do we go shopping with the wife - but hate it? Every day we are bombarded with requests and advertising. Do we just want to please others? What about my needs?

It's a compromise, that's for sure. On a business level, advertising and selling is an exercise in ...

In most countries you can get public records on almost anybody. Just go down to your local office where the records are kept. You can obtain information on properties, people's residences, arrests and a whole lot more. Problem is - it's local. To find out information on people outside your area you need to go where they live. And there is often a steep cost for the local government to copy records.

If you are a baby boomer 50+ and haven't looked for a job for a while - you will be surprised at how much things have changed. Many of us in the "old days" used paper, typewriters, fax machines, envelopes and stamps. We'd make up a nice resume on fancy paper all formatted just so. And sent them out - and waited. That's how it was like. Or we went to recruiters who had job ...

Need a grant to start your new business? Many grants are available for businesses, and many would-be business owners have no idea that there are billions of dollars available from many different sources. Over $150,000,000,000 is available for small businesses, and you can apply for as many grants as you want. You don't even have to worry about having bad credit - there are no credit checks. For government grants, ...

I have spent some time analyzing the performance of my websites. One of the things I work on is where to spend my resources to get the most profits from either advertising or affiliate income. It's about the value of keywords and niches. A blog/website about any hobbies/sports/entertainment usually pays much less than sites about mortgages, taxes or any law related sites. On the other hand, it's easier to get traffic for hobby sites - ...

As 100 Million baby boomers will start hitting the age of 65 researchers are having a hard time figuring out how long we will live. It's interesting to think about, because if we live too long - we run out of money. If we die young we can't take it with you. It would be great if we could plan so that when the end comes - the bank account is zero.

Statistics show ...

The other day I wondered what I would do if someone came and said that the income I now have from my internet business will be guaranteed for life and they would take my computers away. Like someone retiring from the job they enjoyed and suddenly stopped.

That though gave me the creeps. I don't think I could leave this alone. My websites are like babies. They need nurturing and feeding. And I ...
