You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Trick…oh Really?
The old adage “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is fast becoming a myth at The Wealthy Affiliate Home and “Reinventing yourself after 60” is becoming the new phrase as I see more and more over 60’s learn how to earn an extra income from home with affiliate marketing.
I think it’s great that people in my age group who were once told to “learn a trade and you’ll have a job for life” are now realizing that it just doesn’t work that way any more! In fact it’s probably one of the biggest lies going nowadays!
Baby boomers and over 60’s are realizing at last that there is no such thing as job security anymore, working all your life to make someone else rich isn’t such a good idea and even the security of a good pension fund just isn’t a reality as the souring cost of living is overtaking fund growth!
Luckily the Internet is opening up a completely new world of opportunity for anyone who is willing to take the initiative and re-train themselves to actually take control of their own lives and build a profitable business online regardless of your age.
Reinventing Yourself After 60
Now before you start spurting out all the usual excuses like:
“I’m too old to start learning something new!”
“I’m too set in my ways”
I want you to just take a look at your life as it is right now and ask yourself honestly, if you could turn the clocks back to just when you were starting out on your career path what would you do differently?
Would you have chosen a completely different career?
Would you have followed your passion and started that business that you always dreamed of?
If your answer was “Nothing” and you’re happy with everything the way it is then you’re probably on the wrong website reading the wrong article!
If the answer was “If I had my time over again I would do things completely differently” then your on the right site reading the right article.
Every day somebody around the world decides to take control of their own lives and destination and follows their dreams.
The good news is today it could be you!
There Has Never Been a Better Time
The Internet has opened the doors to all sorts of business opportunities that would never have been possible before and you don’t have to be a technical wizard to take advantage of them.
All you need is a strong enough desire to change your life for the better and break free from the 9 to 5 trap that you are probably living in at the moment.
You might also just need someone who has already done it to help you along the way and that’s where I come into the picture.
I decided back in 2005 that I wanted complete control over my life and choose when I work, how long I work and where I work.
I now live what I believe is a perfect life where money isn’t my biggest worry and I get to spend the maximum amount of time with my family and I want to show you how you can do the same.

What’s Your Biggest Fear?
Have you recently retired? Or are you coming up for retirement in a couple of months or next year? Retired can be a daunting prospect, on the one hand you’ll be looking forward to some freedom and grabbing the chance to do things that you just didn’t have time for before.
On the other hand, you might be nervous about such a huge life change, and this is understandable. The trick is to keep busy by exploring all the options and ideas that are opened up to you.
You may be a keen golfer with a decent handicap but never get a chance to play a few rounds or even go to the range for that matter.
And if you get to the stage where you’re worried about funding your retirement, I mean let’s face it, you might have another 30 years left in you yet, you’re going to want to keep your next egg.
So, how can you incorporate your love of golf into bringing in a decent income with it? Simple, I explain it here and it’s basically by building a website to blog about it and promoting products related to golf.
