Jobs for senior citizens!
It is a fact that when under stress, sensible people make some not so sensible decisions. This is the person the scammer is looking for. Someone who will make themselves vulnerable because they feel desperate. They just want on of the jobs for senior citizens.
Not a good place to be in.
Have you retired and found yourself in financial hot water? An unplanned emergency upset what plans you had?
It does happen. You are more apt to be ready to jump for whatever that email in your mailbox that suggests. A quick return for your efforts. That is how you need money. Quick.
Sorry to bring bad news
The fast money is usually either illegal or just a come on for a scam operation.
The only one who makes money with those types of opportunities are the scam artists.
The package they prepare for you is pretty.
The results guaranteed! And overwhelming. Unbelievable.
And unfortunately untrue.
When I was young a carnival was an annual thing in our small farm-ranch community.
The con guys were good and quick. They were ready. However, most of us knew they were con artists.
There was always someone to make their job easy. Someone who would fall prey to the game they played.
Someone who believed that the near win meant the next play would produce the win. Just place one more dollar on the wheel.
Finding yourself retired and needing to earn money is a frightening thing.
Unfortunately, many retirees are there.
They thought they were ready for retirement. But were not actually.
I will be the first to admit that getting ready for retirement was a neglected chore for me.
There was a last-minute struggle. Did not begin till I was 60. This does not leave one much time to prepare.
However, a bit of progress was made, and we are able to have a modestly comfortable retirement time. At least for right now.
However, as we both have the genic makeup to live till we are in our late 90’s. Or even beyond. It seems necessary to prepare. We will probably need some extra streams of income for retirement.
And to do some of the things we may want to do along the way.
Are you in this position?
Find yourself retired and short on money? Find yourself reading the jobs for senior citizens and wondering?
It may be too late to have quick access to much. What you can earn at an entry level job. That maybe where you find yourself.
Don’t allow yourself to get in deeper with a scam attempt at a quick income source.
Now is when you must get out your pencil and paper and make a survival plan. You can not wait for your “fairy godmother to make your wishes come true.
Yes, you need a retirement survival plan.
Do you need to go to work immediately? Do you need income to add to your social security check to keep food on your table and a roof over your head
Figure out where you are. The security of the dependable social security check will be the basis that you have to work with.
Make yourself a budget
Now is the time that must happen. How much more do you need to earn each month? To keep the roof overhead and food?
What other debts do you have that put you in such a money bind?
How can you plan to get those things paid off?
How can you get the cost of your daily budget down? Do you need to downsize?
Do you have some clutter that needs to be sold off to make everyday living easier?
We all come with a certain amount of baggage. Sometimes that baggage is costing us money.
As you think through each stage of this, write it down.
Put the budget on paper. Look at it even if it is not pretty.
You need to come to grips with where you are!. You cannot know where you are going until you know where you are!.
Write down all the facts, good and bad.
Add up how much you need each month.
Write down the amount you have coming in. Subtract the difference.
Are you actually as bad off as you thought?
Are you in worse shape than you thought? Know where you are.
Again there is a powerful Mojo in writing down this information.
You can see what needs to be changed.
Will a part-time job help you to stay where you are?
Do you even want to stay where you are?
As you began to look at your future, where do you see yourself this time next year?
In 5 years? Write these things down.
Pull this budget apart. What can be changed?
Can you be comfortable with the air conditioner at a higher sitting? Will saved dollars in utilities allow you to have a few more for paying off debt?
When you have a plan, making a change is easier. You can see the benefit for you.
Your numbers will tell you what you need to work on.
All too often we have learned poor money managing through our working years.
We live a dollar short and an hour late for so many years. We just never realized we could change.
You do not have to just sit there and do nothing.
You do not have to just drift through retirement time with no goals. No plan.
You will not find government-backed numbers and statics to back up this statements in this blog. They are boring anyway. While I was going through them, they did make me think of the people I know.
So I will be writing from my observations and experience, which is limited, but actual.
When you make a plan. Take control. And start working to improve the things in life that are holding you back, you will surprise yourself.
Have you ever had a goal that was important enough to you that you made a plan?
Do you think all the good things that retirement time has to offer will just automatically come your way?
Do you think that jobs for senior citizens will point the way?
That is not how things work.
You must plan. You will spend your days in some way.
Will you flutter about like a wounded sparrow? Just desperately trying to survive? Looking for help and relief somewhere?
You do not have to do that. You can live a better life.
You can know what is going on in your life.
Financially and personally.
The days do not have to stretch before you endlessly. No plan to do what you want to. No forward progress.
You must not miss this most precious time in your life, your retirement years.
You have earned this time. These retirement years! They are yours.
If you have never taken a moment for yourself to make this plan, do it now.
Make some of the things you want to come about, happen.
Writing goals, dreams, and ideas down to make the future better . Make his time yours. Make retirement a great time.
What better thing to do for your family.
Show them how to take control of their lives through your example.
You can help your family improve their here and now lives as well as their future.
We have been parents forever at this point. The best example is to get this part right for your family.
You have heard people scoff the idea that planning can not make a difference. When you live your life so completely for right now, your plan will never reach maturity. It is important to plan if you are going to be looking for jobs for senior citizens.
Living in the present and living for right now are two different things.
Do not ever confuse the two.
The ones who will not plan. Insist that they do not want to have a schedule.
They want to do what they want when they want.
This lifestyle will not get a very happy life. One day may work out well for you. But, tomorrow when you are living with things that were left undone? With money spent, that should not have been.
One fun day you would change for a lifetime of being in control of your future?
Have you lived that way before and want no more of it?
Do you want the calm of knowing what tomorrow will bring?
Do you want to be able to have as comfortable a life as possible?
Do you want to see the dreams you have of the retirement days come true?
Are you willing to spend some of the time, in your”unplanned” retirement day, and do some planning?
Figuring how to make the days better for you, your spouse, and your family?
You are not a selfish person.
You may be undisciplined at times. Make decisions that you wish you had not made.
Those times do not make a life.
You can improve on those times.
Make better decisions and get back in the driver’s seat of your life.
You can do this.
You can make yourself a better person.
One day at a time.
One decision at a time.
You can make a plan. Make yourself aware of the areas where you need to be more alert.
More alert to what is making your retirement life be different from what you want.
A written plan will not change the future. Only you can do that.
You can do it by making the changes in you. A little at a time. Day by day.
When I first learned the power of a written plan, I tried to make these huge shifts in my life.
Make impossible dreams come true. Even when searching for jobs for senior citizens.
I have since learned that was not the correct way to plan.
That was just daydreaming on paper. A plan is a definite intent to get from point a to point B.
How real are your plans?
How do you really want to live your remaining retirement years?
There are still some choices you can make to make your life better.
Are you willing to do it?
Is planning to learn something new interesting to you?
Do you plan to spend your retirement years with your head in the sand?
Proclaiming that you cannot change things. This is all you can do?
Or will you buckle down, make a plan.
Read and review the plan.
Actually, act on the plan.
Do not fall prey to getting rich quick scams.
When you plan your own future. You know more about what you need. And how you can get to where you need to be.
You have gathered your resources and researched.
You know what you are looking for.
If a job is needed, you know how much you need to make. You have researched the jobs for senior citizens. You know if the offer is what you need.
You are not acting in a panic. You have a plan. It is written down.
You know if you need to get employment immediately.
You have a list of places you can get work locally. That will give you a paycheck immediately.
You know who is hiring part time. About what they pay.
What you need to make things better for you.
Knowing you need to work a year to pay off the extra debt you had when you retired. That is easier when you know it is only to get that debt paid.
Then you can fully retire if you chose. You have planned and are acting on your plan.
Do you have enough income to live for a few years? But are questioning outliving your income? Maybe building a business online will be something you are interested in.
It is easy, but it is work. It does not happen overnight. Show me what Sami chose!
There are options for you when you plan. Then act on the plan. Take control. See where you can go?
Adjust as necessary to get to where you want to be.
Your picture of retirement may not be what you had envisioned. You may have a not too bright future. With a plan, you know why you are not able to spend. Spending what you do not have is a nasty habit to shake.
However, you know where you are financially. You can have a better idea of what the future holds.
You cannot get everything right the first time. If you are new to planning, you have a lot to learn here. The first plan is not always 100% what you want and need. Jobs for senior citizens is not always a bad thing.
It is a start.
You must learn.
You must get up each morning excited about your day. Being in control of your life. Your day/ Taking the steps that will take you to a better life.
The retirement life you deserve.
