How do you like the idea of working until you are 70+, not a very appealing thought! OK for those that choose to but as a compulsory situation, not good. So what is the way round it? Well hopefully it scared you into taking out a private pension or making some other preparation like buying up property to let.
For those of you that haven’t found a solution; what hobby do you have or you would be interested in? Would it make a good hobby business? Something like fishing or golf, maybe cooking or jewellery making, keeping fit or weight loss, that one is always popular! Most hobbies with an interested following could be turned into an online business. What are you passionate about? Is there a selection of magazines on the topic, if so and there is a good following it could be suitable.
Next you need to test it for viability and profitability on Google’s keyword tool and my checking keywords, and see if there are enough people searching monthly.
Is it something you would like to spend time studying, working with and sharing your knowledge with others? Being passionate about your work makes it a pleasure not a chore.
Don’t wait to start your hobby business until you retire, start to build it now in your spare-time whilst you have an income. Online businesses are relatively inexpensive to set up but you will need a little cash to begin.
Affiliate marketing it the simplest way to start-up online and in its simplest form you are just sending customers to other people’s products. No face to face selling and there are plenty of companies in all niches (topics) looking for affiliate marketers.
As you learn the techniques you can build your own list of happy customers and interest them in other products. However for a fast and simple start find a mentor with products you like and learn the techniques, then diversify as it suits you. Your hobby business can be grown to any size according to the time and interest you put in.
Begin by taking a look at hobby magazines and read more about Affiliate marketing, there are loads of books available on marketing and all issues of setting up a business. YouTube is also a good source of information.
I have just found several training videos on YouTube for using the Keyword planner but if you prefer a book read: “SEO step by Step” by Caimin Jones there is a whole chapter on the Keyword tool and a great deal of other information.
If you need a new laptop I found a well illustrated guide “Microsoft windows 8 made easy. Or if you prefer windows 7 because that is what you are used to consider a good reconditioned model, mine even had a guarantee.
If you would like to read a book that makes your current job more satisfying, I found it helped, when I was in a job I hated: “Thank God it’s Monday” by Charles Cameron and Suzanne Elusor. A rather strange title as it isn’t about religion!
So take my advice and start now, build your hobby business, don’t wait until you are 70 and regret your indecision. It is great fun and will give you an interest in later years and the freedom to work a few hours a week. Everything will be your choice!
Whatever you decide, I hope you find a way to ovoid working longer than you want to!
