In every retirement plan, saving money is involved although only a few successfully saves enough money to fund their retirement or to invest in something that could produce a steady flow of income. A good retirement investment is something that should eat up only a small portion of your hard-earned savings and has a high return on investment.

Volunteering and starting a business are among the most popular things that retirees do. A brick and mortar business however especially for retirees is not advisable since stress in this industry is inevitable. The most suitable company for retirees is the kind where it is doable in your own home such as a home business without personal selling. No secret sale means that you do not need to sell tangible products personally (like meeting your customers and delivering the products yourself) or it would not be suitable for retirees now would it?

Most individuals do home-based businesses part-time, and they are still earning enough money for them to consider the idea of quitting their day jobs. Since a retired person does not have a job, more time can be spent on the business. More time equals more output for the growth of the company and growth means more income. Aside from that, a home business does not require significant capital to start, and if done right, it will pay for itself after a short period of time. The convenience of working from home and generating income as if you still have your job is indeed a good retirement investment that can fuel your passion as a retiree.

Retirement is supposed to be enjoyed and not something to be afraid of. You can still make a living after you have retired being able to build real wealth in your life has a lot to do with your ability to attract money. I’m not talking about the false idea or impression that you can somehow just drop money into your lap without any effort at all. It’s more about attracting capital making opportunities that will allow you to create financial abundance in your life and that is how you will begin to be able to build wealth.

Here are three tips to help you do EXACTLY this:

1. Start with the right mindset. 

Too many people have a self defeating mindset when it comes to their abilities to produce wealth and riches. They think that it’s NOT for them and that somehow, these other people that are able to attract money have some special secret that they don’t. The secret is that your mindset is your key to success.

2. Write down your financial goals. 

Unless you come up with a specific amount of money that you want to possess, it’s too much of a lofty idea. It has little substance. The moment you write down exactly how much money you would like to have, you set forth a course for yourself to actually get there. So, write it down!

3. Align yourself with the RIGHT people

Too many people align themselves with people that have really negative ideas and belief systems. And no matter how you think about it, some of this will rub off on you. The opposite is also true. If you align yourself with the right people, some of their success and their ideas will rub off on YOU.
