Hey, does this sound familiar to anyone out there? I am Retired, Bored, and Broke! Welcome to my world (which is the title of a very beautiful song) but this is where I have been for the past few years.
Bored and Broke
Not everyone thinks the same or lives the same lifestyle this is one of the reasons over half the working class people who decide to retire or some are even forced into retirement are not prepared for what happens afterward.
Life happens and when we get in our 50s some even in their 60s they realize they have not put anything back for their retirement and they are going to be living on a tight budget with Social Security the only means of income once retired.
Some people use their retirement funds that they managed to save and pay off all the debt they have upon retirement and have nothing left but their Social Security every month.
However, this has turned out here you now sit bored and broke with no money to enjoy retirement and do things you would seriously love to be doing right?
I was in the exact same position as you until a few months ago when I thought to myself you have always wanted to run an online business and tried all those scams that did not work why not see if there is something legit you can find.
Finding a Legit Progam
Searching many many platforms and programs online one day I found a website called Wealthy Affiliates it says FREE to join training provided – thinking to myself “sure right?”
Opening hundreds of these always led me to a video that when the guru gets done talking and hyping you up for half an hour or so then wants $47.00 to get the marvelous system that is going to earn you thousands daily right?
Sorry have been there done so many of those that I wasted money galore in the past when I actually could afford to do so and nothing I mean nothing ever worked.
But what the heck, click on the link the normal enter your email address screen comes up now this takes a couple of seconds to fill in and hit the get started now button right?
I am thinking ready for the video but no way a website comes up welcoming me to the Wealthy Affiliate platform with access to real training what? Is this real? Start clicking on the different icons to find out, sure enough, it is REAL!
This was so exciting I jumped into the Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) training and started with Level 1 Getting Started, this contains 10 lessons broken down into headings that seriously teach you what to do and how to do it. That above is my profile screen just for reference 🙂
Videos of each lesson show you exactly what to do with audio instruction making things so easy but here is the catch you do need some computer experience to perform these as easy as I did (I have worked on computers for 30 years with different browsers and platforms) no not programming or coding that is all handled by the WA support staff.
Simply things such as typing and not fast can be a one finger typist you are fine, knowing how to copy and paste, knowing how to download and upload files and images, and taking screenshots things of the manner.
How this Works
After joining the Wealthy Affiliate community (cannot call this a program or platform) you have seven days to decide if you want to go Premium or just stay a free member.
Staying a free member is all good you can build a website to completion learn exactly how the search engines work to find your website and get ranked for a position.
You never have to go Premium and can work on not one but two free websites that Wealthy Affiliates hosts on the internet for you for free – yes that is correct free!
A drawback here comes that you do not have access to the whole benefits package offered at Wealthy Affiliates and this will delay your progress to becoming successful online.
But you probably figured out that at some point you would need to spend money on joining this wonderful community am I correct?
Please do not be discouraged next let me explain how Premium Membership works for you.
Remember you never have to become a Premium Member within this community you can remain a free member for as long as you want just stay active producing content to your website.
Premium Membership for the first month if you decide to join within the first seven days come with a nice discount of only $19.00 this includes everything they have to offer in the community.
After this then the monthly premium is $49.00 per month or if you want to save money you can get a yearly membership for the low price of $359.00.
Not only does this give you access to thousands of online successful business people but the owners of the community Kyle and Carson who have set this up in 2005 that is saying something to be in the business that long with the same name!
You will also be able to build 50 websites on the platform for free but 25 of these will be hosted under a subdomain known as siterubix.com the other 25 you can purchase your own domain name for this only runs at the most $15.99 for a year.
Selecting your own domain name and owning it means if you ever leave Wealthy Affiliates this is yours to keep the only thing is you will then have to find your own hosting, Site Speed, SSL certificate, and Site Protection because this is inclusive here.
You might be thinking I can go to a place like GoDaddy cheaper and build a website let me ask you to do your homework on this I have already done a comparison chart on another site and Wealthy Affiliates is a better deal in the long run.
Not really sure how people are doing out there living on Social Security benefits only I know that I had to struggle until I found Wealthy Affiliates now things are looking up.
The best part is when I am able to start traveling my business goes with me anywhere in the world that I have an internet connection I am able to work. Do not feel like getting dressed today fine I can work in my pj’s.
This is one thing to look into if you are looking for an opportunity to make some nice money online and not go out pounding the pavement looking for a job where you are discriminated against because of your age.
