Baby Boomers and Network Marketing

Good friends
Are you 50+ and wondering if you can start a home business? Yes, you can.

From 1975-2009 I was a good employee, lived paycheck to paycheck, and saved for retirement each month. Most years I had a good boss, and I was able to buy my home and a nice car. But like hundreds of thousands of families, there was no escaping the global economic recession as home values nosedived and my investments were wiped out. I knew my golden years would not be prosperous without long term residual income.

When I retired in 2009, the income from my retirement check did not cover my expenses. Old habits die hard, so I looked for another job and had a few interviews. Wow, in today's job market if you're over 50, forget about it! Besides, experience taught me that I would never create the life of my dreams as an employee.

Time with family How many stories have you seen the past two years about Baby Boomers losing 30%-40% of their retirement fund who now can't retire? Even worse, many have lost their jobs and are on the brink of losing their homes. When I realized that finding a decent job now would be extremely difficult, not to mention the low pay, I knew there was no way I could rely on a 9-to-5 job again. I could kiss my dreams goodbye forever...period. It became crystal clear it was time to create a new 'job' and become an entrepreneur.

Today I can work from home or anywhere with Internet access and a phone. There is no salary cap, and there are tax advantages not available to an employee. After searching for 2 months I found the right team and the right product to build my home business. Now I can earn unlimited income, and you can too!

If you are concerned about achieving the life of your dreams and want to create a new income stream, consider the network marketing profession. A recent survey shows 58 percent of Americans are considering second jobs. Whether you are a Baby Boomer, single mom, college student or a real estate professional -- you can learn to succeed in this business.

The key to your success is your network, becoming a professional, lots of training (including live events, online courses and marketing systems), building a team, ongoing personal development and promoting products that are in demand. Become part of a global movement and a growing class of wealthy entrepreneurs. The time is now. Network marketing truly is the business of the 21st century. You can start a home business part-time while retaining your current job.

    Do you think the baby boomers have done a good job managing companies and their lives?

    Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and other leaders have left lasting legacies and permanent change for the better. But others leaders have made fortunes at home buyers’, employees’ and investors’ expense, leading to the crash of our economy in 2008. Only a small percentage of Baby Boomers are affluent; unfortunately most are unable to retire and are hardest hit by job layoffs.

    Hey Cindy,

    You are so right. Unfortunately I speak with baby boomers every day who call me for financial advice and after doing everything “right” they find themselves deep in debt and wondering how they are going to be able to start over and accelerate their incomes to allow them to have a retirement.  Network Marketing is a great vehicle for those that truly embrace and understand the concept.

    Great connecting with you on Twitter.

    Thank you, Damon! Because of their sheer numbers, Baby Boomers are poised to change forever the life stage we call retirement in the U.S.
