Well so much for retirement. Are you getting bored. Well I know the feeling. If you are retired and still healthy, it can be frustrate to have nothing meaningful to do. So check out this article and I’ll tell you about some jobs for retirees.
Shop till you drop
I’m not a shopper so that’s out and who couldn’t use some extra cash, so I researched work for retirees. Working from home sounds so good, no make-up, no dressing up, no fighting traffic, just some of the perks of working from home.
But beware, work at home scams have increased in the last few years by nearly double.
As the saying goes, “if it sound to good to be true, it probably is. So be careful.
If there is a charge or fee to get a job, stay clear.
But there are plenty of legitimate jobs available:
If you frequent a familiar store or specialty shop and like the environment check with some of the staff you might be friendly with.
Stop in and let them know you are available for certain hours, if they are looking for extra staff. 30% of retail employers are looking to hire retirees.
2. Booking keeping
If you have a background in finance this is a great area to look at. Many small businesses can’t afford a full-time bookkeeper but could use someone on a part-time basis.
3. Tax Preparation
If you have the skills you could get a part-time position at a large tax preparation firm during tax season. Even being a receptionist if you don’t have the skills to do taxes.
4. Elder Care and Home Health Care
This is a field that always needs help, as our population is living longer. Especially if you have a background in the nursing field.
If you enjoy driving, your license is current and you have proper insurance, this is another avenue to look at.
Limo drivers, school bus drivers, special needs drivers are some of the many possibilities.
Check with a local airport or schools in your area.
These are just some of many avenues to check out.
I have been doing affiliate marketing for a couple of years and I love it.
You can get a business set-up and running with very little cost.
It’s a little difficult to grasp in the beginning but once you get into it is a lot of fun and challenging and you don’t have to be a computer whiz to do this. When I started I was very limited in computer knowledge.
You work off a computer and the internet and that’s about all you need to get started.
You should research many sites pertaining to affiliate marketing before you get started, but beware.
Make sure they are not asking for large sums of money upfront.
Do your due diligence and research many different sites. There are many free ones to get started and many that are just scams. So be careful and don’t part with any money in the beginning.
Some will ask for a minimal amount of money to get started, but then they want you to keep investing more and more to get the best program. Don’t fall for that. That’s just a scam.
My opinion for what it’s worth
I searched and searched for quite a while, trying to weed out the good programs from the bad.
And yes there are some good programs available. But some are complicated, some just send you a bunch of videos and you are on your own. But the best course I found after months of searching is Wealthy Affiliate, bar none.
If you are not into researching the different sites and ways to find a good match, just look at Wealthy Affiliate. They have everything you need and it’d completely free to join. You can work with the Started program as long as you want and it is always free. If you want to upgrade to Premium you can do that also.
Please check out my review here to see if it’s something for you, I think it could be.
