I try never to use a webcam if I can possibly help it. This couple, however, thought they'd give it a shot - and they were successful too! They just didn't know it. Their granddaughter found the clip on their computer later and posted it to YouTube. It should make you smile...
They say we all have a book in us, don't they? If you'd like to get your own book out of you, you might like to consider making it an ebook.
I don't know about you, but I'm a bit of a free spirit - I don't like other people dictating how and when I do things, so for me, going down the ebook route (rather than the conventional publishing route) was a no-brainer. After 10 years of self-employment, I really don't want to be dealing with any publisher-driven deadlines or re-writes!
Maybe, as a retiree, you can identify with that position? Maybe you, too, have had enough of jumping through someone else's hoops and you just want to write your book in your own time and your own way...
If that sounds like you, check out our special report - How to Write an Ebook - written for the 100 Retirement Business Ideas website clientele, and costing just $5. (That's currently about £3.05 if, like me, you're avoiding publishers in the UK. :))
Some of us tried retirement and were spectacularly unsuccessful at it.
Some retired early but not by choice.
Some just aren't ready to call it quits.
And some have come to the conclusion that they'll never be able to afford to retire.
Whatever the reason, many baby boomers and seniors are considering entrepreneurship as an alternative to retirement.
Whether your forays into entrepreneurship lead to you to becoming the next Donald Trump or Martha Stewart, or whether you just want to sell a few of your handmade bracelets on Etsy for a bit of extra spending money, we all need a place to start.
So here it is. Your place to start...
I have a new blog - 100 Retirement Business Ideas. (It's a work in progress - I don't have all 100 ideas up there yet - only about 15 at the time I was writing this. But the draft versions of the posts have been loaded up and I'm making them 'live' as quickly as I can, so have a look at what IS there and bookmark the site so you can come back later and see what else has been added.)
With more and more of us baby boomers joining social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, you might be interested in a recent post on the Informed Choice blog. In it, Martin Bamford writes about Facebook Places - a feature on Facebook which enables users to add their exact location to a status update, and points out that, "whilst these tools and features have some useful applications, it is important to be aware of the dangers they pose as well".
