The baby boomer generation that has survived the 2008-’10 recession must have realized how vital and essential it is to save. There’s a point of time in everyone’s life, when they have to retire from their work. However, life’s demands do not cease to exist along with your retirement. You need to fulfill your daily necessities that are same as they used to be. On the other hand you have no job, which means you have no income. Would you leave your post-retirement life to such uncertainty?
You might not be too much worried about your post-retirement financial concerns. You might be too confident with your life-long savings. True, you have no reason to worry or feel concerned about if you have been saving a part of your earnings. And yet, can you ever be so certain, especially when it concerns ‘finance’ and that too in ‘future’? Many retired professionals who had never ever feared financial uncertainty found it tremendously tough to put things together during the recession.
I have no intention to demean the fact that you save or the ways you save for your retired life. In fact, I wonder at the fact that most elderly people are content with their savings and the interests gained on it while they have no intention to earn further. I understand, you might argue the point of retiring if you have to work to earn. However, I do not mean to suggest you to carry on with your work and earn even when you are past sixty. I rather feel surprised, why don’t you invest in those business sectors that will reward you with greater returns – so significant that you will consider them to be your regular earning rather than mere bonus?
You might like to some prudent ways of investing, which will help you earn when you are already retired. One best way to earn without working is to bank on your experience. You might have worked as a professional during your professional life. However, at the same time, you should also try your genius as an entrepreneur. Try to grow the same business while you play a completely different role. With optimal utilization of your experience you can beat your competitors who you have known for years.
