I know money isn't everything, but it is the means to everything, absolutely essential for even the most basic necessities of life. The more you have, the more options are open to you.
I wasn't looking for an online business, but I'm planning to retire this year after a lengthy career in nursing. My husband is sort of retired already. He just stopped looking for work after 3 separate companies he worked for permanently closed their doors. Whether downsizing or moving to a locale with a cheaper workforce, the bottom line is always profit at the expense of people!
I'll need to supplement my pension to cover the bills and have some fun money left over. But progressively we are seeing employers pay less for more work while the cost of living sky rockets. Thinking about retiring to take on a new job makes me tired.
So I was looking for something and I stumbled across a post on Facebook that peaked my interest. A woman was talking about a way to be my own boss, to supplement my income on my own terms by starting up my own online business. What she said made sense to me and I wanted to know more.
Acting on hopeful curiosity led me to where I am today. My husband and I are no longer dreaming of a better retirement, we're actually taking the steps to create one! Brenda
