Making The Most Out of Your Retirement Income
Health, wealth and relationships are some very important pieces to the puzzle for most retirees. The reason for this is that I’ve been reading a lot lately about seniors having to decide between medication to stay healthy and food, one of the basics of life. Not much of a choice, but one that some people face every day and the reason may people continue to work after retirement. It is also the reason that many retired people are looking for work at home jobs. This can be the best of all jobs for seniors that you can imagine. But, the difficulty comes in finding a job that you can do from your home. Here are some tips to help you find yours.
Work At Home Jobs and Where to Find Them
1. Evaluate your skills. Carefully reflect on the things you’re good at and which of those skills would be worth money to another person or company. You may be surprised what you discover is worth money. Some people are willing to pay good money for things that may seem easy or natural for you. Make a list of things you have learned from previous jobs and industries.
2. Advertise Your Services. Recognize the fact that networking is the only useful way that you can find part-time work you can do at home. My recommendation is to find and join several professional networks to promote your skills and knowledge.
3. Volunteer Work. Believe it or not, volunteer work can lead to paid positions if you’re displaying excellence in what you do. We recommend finding any company or nonprofit that you believe in the purpose. Be it homelessness, domestic violence shelters, disaster relief. church or religious organizations, the list goes on. We’ve found several readers have been hired on as part time or even full time staff when they began serving as a volunteer. Pretty amazing considering that youre there for free anyway, might as well get paid!
4. Always believe in yourself and your ability to perform a great job. Never forget how awesome you are!
