Everyone Was Once A Beginner

Everyone Was Once A Beginner

Everyone Was Once A BeginnerEveryone Was Once A Beginner : The actual quote is “Every Expert Was Once A Beginner” and was attributed to an actress called Helen Hayes who was an actress and one of the first to be awarded and Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.  If anyone became an expert at their craft it was Helen Hayes

For us the phrase is a very important one because we know that to be an expert at anything you need to master the skills required and in some instances that can take months and even years …. we talk about this in our video recorded on the ski slopes of France where our young grand-children aged 3 1/2 and 5 have just had their very first skiing lesson (and they loved it)

Everyone Was Once A Beginner Video

Whether is is starting a new hobby (like skiing), a new job or becoming an entrepreneur, success doesn’t happen overnight and we shouldn’t expect that it will

We must start with baby steps and fall over a few times to get to being the expert we want to be!

Sadly, in our experience common sense is thrown to the wind in the online entrepreneurship world and people with no skills or experience of this world expect to be experts overnigh.  We know this because we thought we would too … we knew we would have to master new skills however so our time frame was not immediate!

That being said, master new skills we did and just like skiing it was one step at a time, one lesson at a time.

So that’s our message to you reading this post today.

Be adventurous, learn a new skill and very soon you will become the expert you want to be.

Everyone has to start somewhere. You have your whole future ahead of you. Perfection doesn’t happen right away” ~ Haruki Murakami

Retirement Catch Up Strategies

Retirement Catch Up Strategies

Retirement Catch Up StrategiesRetirement Catch Up Strategies : Running out of money is the biggest problem we all have in an approaching retirement.  During our research we found this article on USA News which should help those of you reading this (just like us) who have become life-long procrastinators burying our heads in the sand when faced with the challenges we now all face in our retirement.

We found this really good article on USA Today called Retirement Catch Up Strategies For Life-long Procrastinators

According to USA Today you can try these savings tips if you’ve fallen behind on preparing for retirement:-

1. Save first, spend second

2. Make Catch-up contributions

3. Decrease monthly expenditures

4. Downsize or relocate before retirement

5. Earn side income

6. Change employment

7. Create cash flow

Now you can read all about these tips over on the article on USA Today and you can of course do all of the things in 1 – 7 but personally (since we’re doing it) we prefer #5 Earning a Side Income

Per the article, if you have the capacity to work outside of your full-time job, consider starting a side business to earn additional money. Side income doesn’t have to be large to make a significant impact on your monthly cash flow. The extra income will free up money for contributions to your 401(k) or other tax-advantaged accounts.

Start by identifying activities and hobbies that you do for enjoyment. Then explore ways to monetize your interests when you have free time outside of your nine-to-five job. If you’re lost for ideas, browse the internet or social media sites for advice on ways to earn extra money. You may be able to find an online course in the niche you’re considering and emulate others who have turned an interest or hobby into income. Don’t be discouraged by a crowded marketplace. Your unique background and perspective can attract an audience or population of buyers to consume whatever it is you’re providing.

Believe it or not that’s exactly how we came to create our side income albeit a rather unusual route.  We had been researching online business training for our clients and discovered that we could in fact build a business teaching this to people like you and showing you how to set up a business (side income) leveraging products created by someone else as an affiliate marketer.

We were also looking closer at one of our favourite activies – travel and combining that and our side income we now have a very fulfilled and profitable retirement and able to teach others how to do the same

RetirementJust this year alone we have travelled to France,  Las Vegas, Florida, Arizona, Costa Rica, and we’re writing this to you today at our home in the mountains of the French Alps

Last year we travelled to Spain, France, Costa Rica, Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Las Vegas, USA, Singapore And Australia and mentored students all across the USA.  That amounted to 120,348 miles (9 countries and 13 cities) culminating in 4.8 x round the earth

That’s quite something to say you’ve done in your retirement following your passion and creating a ‘side income‘!

If you are already retired doing what we do can be a big benefit as well

You can work online and not have to spend much time each day to earn great income…it’s what we learned to do and what we now teach and train others to do.

Look at becoming an affiliate marketer with us. You don’t need computer expertise nor business training. You are given the tools to use and you are shown how to use them.

It is like learning to drive a car. You don’t have to build the car. You are shown what to do. You practice it, and it works!

The experience of working online has been eye-opening and lucrative for us, as retired accountants and management consultants and we know it can be for you too

Thanks for reading and take a look at what we do and investigate if it would work for you.  We’ll even give you our best selling book “Limitless” for free when you do.

URB-728-x-90Thanks for reading and hope we’ve inspired you to consider your retirement future

We think this quote sums up what retirement should be like wonderfully

“Retirement is like a long vacation in Las Vegas. The goal is to enjoy it the fullest, but not so fully that you run out of money”
