Creative Ways to Make Money
A Workshop Designed to Find YOUR Best Options for Purpose and Income in Retirement
Larry, Work in Retirement Coach
When I reached retirement age I kept on working. I thought I must be an odd-ball for doing so.
I was active in my home improvement business until four years ago when I realized I was getting too old for the physical demands of work.
I made a decision to redirect my life and return to work I enjoyed earlier: Executive Career Mgt.
The facts show a majority of retirees are considering working during part of their retirement.
I became a Work In Retirement Coach to help you to continue working in retirement.
I want to help you with significant life-changing decisions about what type of work you might do and to best way to make that happen.
Founder of Retirement-Online.com, I want to help more retirees feel active and productive again.
That doesn't mean "work", It does mean you can do what you enjoy for income.
You choose what you do, how you do it, and where (in your local community or online, or even moving). We guide the process and help you find your perfect retirement!
This is a Workshop to help you use creative ways to find purpose and income in your retirement years.
I am bringing my experience of my own transition into designing this workshop in a way that will show you how to take advantage of creative ways to make money in retirement yourself. I know anyone can find a rewarding way to uncover some special interest you have and learn how to enjoy your work fully and make money doing it.
If you have tried to find work already, I’m sure you will agree that the techniques you may have used before, won’t work very well as a retiree. I’m not saying you can’t find any type of job you can do to make some money because I know you can do that on your own.
What I’m talking about is deciding on something you can offer others that you enjoy doing and figuring out how to make money doing it. This approach puts you in control of the process of directing you effort to create a situation that is tailor made to transform your life in retirement and make money along the way.
What it is not about is finding want ads and trying to set up interviews. That just does not work at this point in your life. If you feel earning an extra income especially doing something you enjoy then this workshop is for you.
If you’re willing to make a binding commitment to keep an open mind to learn some creative techniques the outcome will make your life in retirement the best it can be.
You have the chance to figuring out new options you may have never considered even possible before. And you will be exploring these new options while being surrounded with an abundance of support from the other workshop participants as well as my direct support to guide you every step of the way.
In addition to learning a new way to earn an income, you will benefit from on-going support that will be provided in the form of a private Facebook work group that you can participate in for as long as you want.
So start thinking about living where you want and being around people you choose to be with. Imagine earning an income that will support the lifestyle you desire that you didn’t think was possible? Let’s get started.
