Do you make plans for the future? Or do you let the future take care of itself? Years pass so quickly if you don’t make plans you lose choices. Do you imagine retirement to be the end of the road with no excitement and only health challenges and the goggle box for company; with days stretching endlessly into a boring future interspersed with a bit of golf, gardening and a walk or two? Or is it an exciting time in your life when you will have the time to do all the things you haven’t had time for before?
The only problem with the current delayed retirement ages, will you have enough energy by the time your release date arrives?
Take control of your life events now and plan for your future. Start a part-time hobby business and build it now so that you have funds to retire when you choose to and an interest to take into retirement.
Get into property renovation, become a landlord with buy-to-let mortgages. Or maybe stocks and shares are more your style. Or take up wedding-photography, or writing kindle books. There are endless possibilities with some lateral thinking.
How much more interesting your future will be with the interest of a hobby business of your choice; something you enjoy doing that brings in extra cash.
What about a business online? With the growth of the internet there are any number of businesses you could develop.
If you want a simple way to start online, take a look at affiliate marketing. Do some research into a suitable niche that you are interested in. Develop a current hobby into a business or find a new interest.
Affiliate marketing is one of the simplest starting points online. With the help of a mentor to provide excellent products and support you can earn whilst you learn the techniques. Later you can develop various areas of your business to suit your personality and preferences; by then you will have a grounding in the techniques.
