Are you curious about how I retired to the internet using Solo Build It!? I am no web know-it-all, and I don't do web coding, but I really did retire to work on my websites as I have a secret. My secret is a website tool that practically guarantees success (assuming you follow their Action Guide) and that is my website builder - Solo Build It!
I retired April 2010. Today, I'm an Online Business Owner. SBI can be another income source for retirement.
SBI has improved my retired life greatly... it can help to UN-retire you! Boomers simply aren't wired to sit there in retirement. SBI will re-energize you, motivate and challenge you. SBI gave me a new passion for life - it really did! That's just the beginning, income comes next!
Instead of sitting there bored when you retire, build a website that helps information seekers! You found my retirement site, right?
You can provide info to help others on any topic that you can write about. PLUS - the best advantage for retirees - you keep your brain thinking. We all need to be mentally challenged still... it's so important!
Hey - you can even have both the rocking chair (red leather recliner, in my case.. grin!) and a work from home solution with income! It's a win-win when you retire to the internet. I'm very serious about building websites, this is real and I will answer your questions any time... Just drop me an email!
USE the lifetime of knowledge that is now stuck inside your head. Information which is pretty much useless unless you share it... and what others are seeking every day.
Share what you know, with the world, to help others! Why Not?
Seriously, why not share your life, talents, imagination and experience?
These Are YOUR Retirement Years... Retire TO Something (Instead of Retiring FROM Work), makes perfect sense, right?
Keep it Real with SBI and Share your Knowledge!
When you get, give,
When you learn, teach...
Maya's quote (above) is my new destiny in life (my RETIRED life). I want to help and teach others so they can live a blessed retirement life as I am.
Two things before you read on:
A time to truly "give back" to the world.
You've worked, been blessed with whatever you have in retirement (we all have many blessings though we might not see them)... so why not use your retirement years to share your passion and energy with the world?
You will keep yourself mentally fit too! Keep that brain thinking and not twirling in confusion.
Work from home or anywhere at all -- in a hotel, a coffee shop, on my sunny deck in the back yard (and I really hate to call this "work")...
This is truly my JOY!
Just think - no need to get dressed for “work” either (work in your pj's, blue jeans, whatever).
You are the Boss!
I can work when I want to and where I want to. I can write, play with creative images, learn something new, chat with other retirees or do anything I care to on my site and community.
So long as enthusiasm lasts, so long is youth still with us.

Share your passion.
Everyone has invaluable ideas and significant thoughts.
You know about something that someone out there needs to learn about -- you have knowledge to share, even better if you have a passion for something like I do with the Retirement Topic.
Website Ideas: Are you a family caregiver? Love canning or making jams and jellies? Are you the "cat lady" caring for your cat? Got a hobby to share? Do you travel? Write about your home town? Favorite singer or musical group. Whatever... the ideas for a website are without limit!
This is the creativity I love with SBI... Love being creative!
Whether you write about your knowledge from a lifetime career, or write about something fun or interesting (I've done both) – why not help others with what you've learned over a lifetime?
Some e-biz owners take a month for vacation, and even when you aren't working on the website, it's still working for you.
Some folks have had family members that needed help (care giving for parents, family illness, etc) and months later they return to work their e-business which still has plenty of visitors and the income didn't end either while they were away!
You can have a busy, fun or relaxing time while on vacation...
or sit on the beach with your laptop, working on your site!
* * Warning Warning! * *
Websites and Sharing Your Passion IS Totally Addictive!
... But you really can Retire to the Internet, like me.
This is deeply satisfying work - it feels so good to keep your brain stimulated by sharing your thoughts and ideas with the world! When you get feedback from visitors - it's simply awesome!
In 2010, I helped a Monk in Germany set up a blog and we are now corresponding frequently. A very interesting guy that I would never have had the opportunity to “meet” without my website. I've met so many great retirees through my site... awesome!
My new identity in retirement is an e-business owner, retirement consultant, pen pal organizer, and now with my newest site, I'm a Christmas Geek too!
We all lose our identity when we retire - suddenly, who am I? Wife and Grandma, is that all there is? No.. no way! Find your own retired life, website or not, there is a fulfilling life beyond retirement!
You will also be challenged as you learn about e-business. John, an engineer techie I met online, just started a solar website and he can't believe how comprehensive the SBI tools are and how different from his prior work. (You don't have to be an engineer to do this, I'm certainly not).
The SBI Action Guide, to me, really is a college course in website ownership. There are forums to help you too... filled with chatty helpful website owners.
So many people, so many life stories, all sharing with other retirees who visit my site. And, lucky me, I get * Surprises * (like little gifts) every single day, via email and on the website! (My fun definition of "surprises" is simply meaningful interactions with retirees around the world. I just love it!)
Yep, I really do have fun with contacts worldwide!
I use Google Adsense but will find new income streams soon, now that I have the time (because I retired in April 2010). Google sends me a check every month, a nice check too! Click the photo if you want to know more...
This isn't a Get Rich Quick Scheme. It does take time to build a website (and lots of content... so you need to enjoy writing). I won't lie and say it's totally easy, but there are MANY retirees doing websites using SBI... AND this is an exciting, challenging, stimulating ride! Click photo to see how this works.
There is a step by step Action Guide from SBI... that takes you by the hand and leads you through the entire process. Browse through it at the link above, and see what this is all about. The guide is both in an e-book and in video too!
IF you need a supplemental retirement income, or simply want to earn money so retirement withdrawals from savings are less, this does really truly work. If you are looking for a quick income, it's not SBI.
Just think, your website is out there 24/7, even when you aren't, AND it reaches a worldwide audience (not simply those nearby). However, if you already have a local business, you can use SBI too! Many do!
Supplement your pension or Social Security with a passive website income, especially in these hard economic times!
If you aren't yet retired, work towards a retirement income before you walk out that retirement door (like I did!)
Like any business, you need to prepare for your customers before you get paid. And your income simply depends on the time and effort you put into the site. If you work at it full-time, you'll have income sooner. If you play with it a few hours here and there, it will take more time.... makes sense, right?
You get what you put into it, like any business... (assuming you follow the Action Guide, of course!)
Don't simply retire FROM Work -
Retire TO The Internet!
I love my work-at-home “job” so much – I do! That's why I feel the need to share what I do here. I hope this helps someone else to a nice retirement income and the feeling you've really done something helpful too!
Your website pages brings visitors, then more visitors, and you begin to earn an income from your efforts alone...
It is deeply satisfying to share your thoughts with the world.
I read this the other day and the words rang true to me... as so many retirees that write to me have "nothing to do" and are so unhappy.
Happiness in retirement is doing something worthy of your time (volunteering, teaching a class, learning something new, or being a website owner).
Finally, and maybe Best of all, you don't need to learn web coding, the SBI software is almost a "fill in the blank" type of website. You pick a header or a paragraph and start typing... after you've found great keywords!
Seeing is believing! Really! It's hard to explain it all here.. but if you click you'll go through a video tour.
If you have any questions, SBI representatives are here to help you.
I am also available to answer questions -- before or after you buy a website - anytime, just drop me an email! I'd love to help you!
To your Awesome Retirement Success,
Retire To the Internet and HAVE FUN!
P.S. Just a warning – if this sounds good to you, but you decide to blog or take a cheaper website provider, you will likely be in the 95% of website owners that fail.
Well, wait – you might be happy with simply writing for fun. That's not failure, its what you intended to do. BUT if you want LOTS of free visitors each month and you want an income too, think twice! Many website owners use their time and effort to build a website, and get no visitors -- so in the end, it's really worthless. That was ME for many years online... uggg! All that wasted time and money!
Do you have a great about this? I'd love to answer...
