Retirement is not necessarily all you thought it would be. You are supposed to sit back and enjoy your free time. However, with life expectancy being longer, medical advances being available to improve health and longevity, but costing so much, and with health issues coming with advanced age, you may find you are running low on retirement funds. Your savings may not be available for the long term to supplement your Social Security. Is there an easy answer?
A work at home business may well be the answer to your problems. You might wish you wouldn't have to work again, but the work at home business is not as demanding as a job out of the home. You set your own hours (within limits of desired income) and you work from the comfort of your own home. You can draw on your expertise of all those years of work to help you be successful in your new work at home venture.
With the great number of businesses claiming to "be the one," how can you make a wise decision? You want a legitimate business, not a scam. How can you tell? One way is to look at the investment. If they require a huge investment, they are probably focused on making money for themselves, and not in conducting a legitimate business. Also, make sure it is not just a pyramid scheme where you sign up someone under you, get a commission on their initial signup fee, and then see nothing else. Be sure there is a product or service you are selling, not just a down line.
A Multi Level Marketing (MLM) opportunity is just one type of work at home business. There are several types that can be profitable to you, but this is the one we will consider here.
To make good money in a MLM opportunity, which is entirely possible, you need to get in before it is overrun with hopeful distributors.
