Retired People Have Amazing Skills And they Need Extra Money Too!
As we get older, people tend to discredit our abilities and our potential. When you were younger it was your parents telling you to get a job like everyone else (the norm).
A few years later on, it could be your employer telling you that you NO you can’t have a pay rise and by the way that the new University graduate that just joined the company is being “fast tracked” to be your boss within the next 12 months.
I hear a lot of people saying “Oh… that’s just how it is”.
I don’t think so. I don’t think that way at all.
I think that as we age we develop a whole lifetime of experience and learning that makes us an asset to our families, our communities and our lives.
I think that all of this life experience makes you far from ordinary… I think that it makes you EXTRAORDINARY.
I think that you have a whole world of knowledge and experience and living that you are just bursting to share with other people. I think that by picking a topic that you really love (a niche) and sharing all of your knowledge and experience with every one that you could be really successful.
And the best part is that you can pick any topic that you like!
- You can choose a hobby
- You can choose an interest
- You can choose your current career
- You can choose a career that you dreamed about doing in your 20’s….. but you went out and got a “sensible job” instead.
- You get to pick ANY topic that interests you!
You have a whole lifetime full of knowledge and experience to share with people so why not start today?
Why don’t you start blogging on a topic that interests you and then recommend a few goods and services that you know will really help people and then whoosh! When they buy the products that you recommend you can earn a commission on the sale.
Sounds great doesn’t it!
Did you know that you can even start this online blogging business if you are unemployed? Yes, that’s right, you can get started for FREE. CLICK HERE to learn how to start blogging if you are unemployed and it needs to be $0.
So what sort of skills do we need to start blogging
Well all we need is a hobby or an interest – TICK
and then a really strong desire to help people.
This one is actually the easiest one of all. The reason is that every niche has some products that are AMAZING and some products that are “junk”. All you have to do is look out for which products are really helpful and let people know and also let people know about which products are “junk” and let them know to stay away from those as well.
And of course there are the products in the middle….. you know the ones that are OK for some people, but no for others. If you honestly believe that a product is right for one type of person but not for another, then just say it.
Honestly really is the best policy.
And the best part about writing product reviews is that honesty really will help you build rapport with people and your audience (website visitors) will look to your opinion as an authority in this space.
You have HEAPS of skills and knowledge and experience which you can share with people of all ages.
- You are unique.
- You have an unbelievable amount of potential.
- You have skills that few people have.
- You have interests that make you unique.
- You have quirks.
- You are special.
It is all these qualities that will make you successful online.
It is my understanding and appreciation that ANYONE can achieve success online.
I know this because I have worked with all types over the years.
I have worked with……
- truck drivers,
- stay at home moms/dads,
- construction workers,
- office clerks,
- the unemployed,
- the over employed,
- students…you name it.
One thing that I have found is that we all have a bit of doubt about our abilities. I do, you probably do.
This is because we have tried different things over the years and failed. Sometimes we have even been “told off” or made to feel like we have “failed”.
Perhaps we didn’t get a “passing grade” in high school,
or we didn’t get the job,
or we didn’t win the game
or we didn’t give the right answer.
Sometimes in life we get in trouble for failing. Sometimes we get in a little bit of trouble for failing and sometimes we get into a LOT of trouble and feel like a total “failure”.
This creates doubt. A doubt that we are not born with, but a doubt that comes with age and that is influenced by our environment.
Failing is good and completely normal. It is part of problem solving. We are problem solvers and it is solving problems that give us purpose in life.
Think about it.
When do you feel as though you have purpose in life?
It is when you solve problems in your own life, and in others.
Helping others feels amazing
We all want to contribute to our community in really positive ways and you can do it as well.
Starting a blog post on a topic that you care about is a great way to help others online.
As the website owners you can offer wonderful advice and solve many of your clients problems. Some of them will even become your friends.
Just knowing that you are helping people and offering quality advice and understanding on a topic that you care about really does create a sense of accomplishment, and it leads to growing skillet.
Now it is your time to solve your niche’s problems,
Pick goods and services in your niche that are really helpful and people should know about?
Spot “dodgy” or bad products a mile away and be willing to let other people know to stay away from those products.
Are you good at solving problems related to you niche?
Are you OK with giving it a go? You might fail at it before you succeed at it…. but at least you will have a lot of fun along the way.
What niche would you pick?
A niche is just a topic which lots of people are looking for information on.
When it comes to picking a niche to get started, I recommend a hobby or a special interest that you have.
Other people start with their current career.
All of these answers are great answers became you already have a large amount of knowledge in this space and you will be able to offer value to your readers really quickly.
This will help you skyrocket your credibility online and help you become an authority site quickly.
