Look at the picture above. As Bette Davis said, “Old age ain’t no place for sissies.”

One in three workers of 55+ have less than $10,000 retirement savings.
2 in 5 workers over 45 have less than $25,000 in retirement savings.
4 out of 5 of us expect to work beyond retirement age. That’s if we can get work.

Pretty scary. I’m 62, and I know there are a LOT of people my age who are very worried about how to have enough money as we age. Medical costs are skyrocketing, and so is food, accommodation – you name it. The solution? A lot of people are saying, “I’ll have to get a job!” Really?

Do you realize that the only job you’re going to get, if it hasn’t been already taken by an immigrant, is packing bags in a grocery store or flipping burgers in a hot kitchen for minimum wage? You’ll have to work an hour just to pay your bus fare to get to work! And with the liberals pushing up the minimum wage, business owners are hiring less people and sending jobs overseas. And as much as they can, they’re using machines to do the jobs that people used to do…

We’re too old and slow, we don’t have the energy, and people don’t want to hire us. And moving to Mexico? Do you really want to live in a third world country when you’re at your most vulnerable? Don’t be silly; we’re not 30 years old anymore. But there is a proven solution that is working for a LOT of seniors I know. What would an extra thousand or two thousand dollars a week mean to you?

Work from home using your phone and your computer, and no, you don’t need computer skills beyond the basics. And you can earn good money. Working part time – when you want to. Ask me about some really good options that are relatively risk free.
