Working at Wal*Mart, Cleaning Houses. Really?

lifestyle_couple_sidebarSomeone I play tennis with told me recently that the woman who cleans his house is 74 years old. Can you imagine that?

And every time I go to the grocery store, I see retirees working there.

I give them a lot of credit for their willingness to work. And maybe some of them just like to keep busy and earn a little extra money. But I’m guessing most of them simply aren’t able to get by very well without supplementing their Social Security checks.

It’s very sad.

According to a survey by the Employee Benefit Research Institute, more than half of all workers (56%) say they have less than $25,000 in savings.

And the Deloitte Center for Financial Services found that 58% of U.S. workers don’t have any retirement plan at all.

What’s YOUR plan?

Can you count on a pension? Do you have a couple of million in your IRA? Could YOU live on a social security check?

The vast majority of Baby Boomers simply can’t.

These are some of the reasons we created the Lifestyle Business System.

A lifestyle business is one that operates on your terms with lots of flexibility, low to no overhead, no risk and usually no employees. It works for YOU instead of you working for it. It’s simple and it’s part time. And ideally, it’s in harmony with your core values and leverages your many talents, skills, your knowledge and your expertise.

It sure beats punching a time-clock at Wal*Mart.

Our very complete (12-module) course shows you exactly how to create a micro-business that can generate extra income for you now and a retirement income when you leave your current job.

Special pricing for you is in effect now.

And it’s all explained on this page . . .

You deserve to create an income while doing meaningful and interesting work.

P.S. Just the tax benefits of having a business of your own can make it worth your while. Let us show you how to monetize your knowledge, skills and experience. Click here to see the syllabus . . .

P.P.S. If you don’t take this route, I hope you have another good plan. Because I don’t want you to end up like so many others.

Can You Retire on $1,230 a Month?

Yes, You Can retire Without MoneyThis message is meant primarily for readers 50 years old and older.

According to the U. S. Social Security Administration, the average monthly Social Security benefit for a retired worker is about $1,230.

That’s the average—yours will be more or less than that based upon what you and your employer have contributed since you began working.

What kind of a lifestyle will you have on your social security check?

Hopefully you have savings, good equity in your home, and a fat 401K to allow you to retire when you want and in the style you would like.

But the vast majority of Americans in the 50-plus range are substantially underfunded when it comes to retirement income. Many have no plan at all.

So this means working at least into their 70’s and/or cutting back substantially on expenses. And that’s not so easy to do.

But I have good news. It doesn’t take a large investment portfolio to retire, it takes an income—a dependable, steady income that will pay you through your golden years.

Because there is such a great need and because there are so many Baby Boomers reaching retirement age over the next few years, we’re creating a complete system in which anyone can design, create and benefit from a “Lifestyle Business”.

I’ve been working on it ever since The Achievement Code came out last year. And I’m excited to be able to help so many people who want to SUBSTANTIALLY improve their retirement years.

It’s all launching in just a few weeks.

But I wanted to tell you about it today, because there is an opportunity for a few individuals to participate at a special price, with personal attention from me, while it is in beta.

This is a chance for you to start (or reinvent) a no- or low-cost, no-risk, lifestyle business of your own with my personal guidance and support.

I’m looking for a handful of serious, committed and hard-working people to create a whole new chapter in their lives.

We’ll be sharing all the great details and the many powerful benefits of our new program over the next few weeks. But I want to start with a very small group of people over the next three months to be used as case studies and success stories. That will also mean some valuable exposure for you and your new business.

If you think you would like to be part of this, contact me so we can chat. Please, only serious inquiries. I don’t want to waste your time or mine.

I’ll explain more when we chat by phone.

Send your name, eMail address and phone number to Michael@SuccessNet.org with LIFESTYLE BIZ in the subject.

I look forward to helping you make your golden years your very BEST years.

PS: As part of the “Silver Tsunami”, it’s your turn and it’s your time. You can design and create your own business that supports your lifestyle—that’s why we call it a lifestyle business.

My Declaration of Interdependence

In the course of human evolution it becomes necessary to acknowledge that we are interdependent beings living in a complex and interconnected world. I’ve learned that we move from dependency to independence to the awareness and appreciation of interdependence.

I hold these truths to be self-evident:

That all people are created equal, that all men and women have the right and the responsibility to use this equality and their talents to better themselves and their fellow Earthlings.

No one is an island unto themselves. We need people and they need us. We’re all valuable and important in the grand scheme of things.

Everything I do affects everything else—even though I may not know what my actions, beliefs and presence will ultimately influence.

I therefore declare myself a free yet interdependent man.

I commit to doing my best in making my life, my family, my community, my country and my world a better place.

I promise to value and acknowledge the contribution other people and organizations make to me, my life and my mission. I pledge to regularly thank and appreciate everyone who adds value.

I will focus my talents and resources in order to effectively help people to increase their performance, profits and potential.

I vow to be a life-long learner. I pledge to seek out the teaching in every person, event and experience—to learn and to share my learning.

I commit to optimizing the hard-earned freedoms we enjoy—and often take for granted—in order to fully realize the dream of our founding fathers. I will do all I can to promote and secure our God-given, inalienable rights for all members of “Spaceship Earth.”

And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, I pledge my life, my fortune and my sacred honor.
