How can anyone be secure in troubled times like these?
These are troubled times. Financial markets are not secure like they once were.
Gone are the days of putting steady investment into a house or into the share market in the comfortable belief that the investment will continue to climb in value year by year.
Once we thought that steady saving would eventually, when we retire, give a financial nest egg to give us a comfortable retirement.
What we thought was a financial wall surrounding ourselves and our family has turned out for many of us to be a barb wire fence with a hand written sign saying “Keep Out” stuck up on it.
In short, our planned security in our old age is no longer secure.
So, we have to ask, “What we are going to do about it?”
Will there be a pension from the government to support us? Who knows! I certainly don’t! Even if there is a pension, will it be enough to make a difference?
We ask ourselves if we want to work for another 5 or 10 years rather than accept a life with too little money and too much time.
What are there alternatives?
Across the Western World people are facing this dilemma.
Being “Old” is a difficult idea. Being “Old and Broke” is something that nightmares are made of.
There ARE answers though. There ARE ways to build additional cashflow without having to stay in the harness of a job for the rest of our lives.
The big costs in life are housing and children. Once those major areas are organized then it really does not take a huge amount of money to live. What many of us need is to “top up” income rather than going into a total retirement where we earn nothing.
It has to be a way that is not expensive to set up and it has to be a way that gives flexibility of time, that we can work when we want, or it is no different from a job.
It needs to produce income but also it needs to reflect our interests and our values. More than a hobby, less than a job, that we can work in the hours we chose to work.
The key is finding something that interests you and that you would look forward to doing.
Many answers in this area are marketing related positions involving sales, distribution, working with people. Marketing positions are often able to be based on production. When you produce the results you get paid, when you don’t you don’t. That means that you can set your own agenda, set your own times, set your own activity.
The trouble is that many of the options get you back in the “wheelbarrow” situation. While you work the money comes in, when you stop then the money stops.
A better option is to find something that allows you to use the skill and experience that you have built up over the years.
There are options that encourage team building and that pay residual income while allowing you to choose the time and energy with which you work.
There is a nice balance in doing something like that if it reflects your skills and your interests.
Above all, if you are going to create something that is not a J.O.B. then you need to be directly involved in the product or service you are working with and truly believe in it.
The way to be in your own business is to find a direct sale company that has a Multi Level Marketing component in it so that you can duplicate your skills and build residual income.
There are many of them around now. Take care and choose one that above all, reflects your own interests. If you have the element of “hobby” in it, doing something you enjoy doing, working with things you want to be involved with then it is fun. Just because you are creating cashflow does not mean that you cannot enjoy doing it.
When you are doing what you enjoy and you are making money with it you have the fundamental pieces of the MLM puzzle already in your hand. Others will want to know what you doing and will be interested to join you in it.
So these are my thoughts about how to secure your future for you and your family, no matter what financial turmoil is swimming around you. Building a residual income, providing a product to an ever growing marketplace, as good health is always a top priority for people whether life is smooth or troubled. Take advantage of the current disruptions in the markets to create your own healthy business, and let the troubled times help to attract more people to your team who also want to find security. Then you will always be able to say “Life is Good” and mean it.
