UnRetirement – The Wave of the Future

 

Do you have enough money for retirement?

That question may seem a little personal… but you need to answer it truthfully because the quality of your life depends on it.

The harsh truth is that most Baby Boomers don’t.

If you’ve spent the last 30 or so years building a family, working, and dealing with “life,” then you probably haven’t had much time or money leftover to build a retirement “nest egg.”

According to USA Today… Almost a third of workers (28%) say they have less than $1,000 in savings and investments that could be used for retirement, not counting their primary residence or defined benefits plans such as traditional pensions.

Almost one-third have almost NO retirement savings at all!

A recent telephone survey of 1,003 workers and 1,001 retirees from the non-profit Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) and Greenwald and Associates showed that 57% have less than $25,000 saved for retirement. 

That would barely support a married couple for ONE year!

Pretty shocking!

As you can see, most of these surveys clearly demonstrate that the majority of Americans are not prepared for retirement.

But this letter is not all “doom and gloom…”

Because whether you are approaching retirement, or already in retirement, we are about to show you a way to maintain (or improve on) your current lifestyle well into your golden years.

And here’s the best part…

 

                         You can do this from the comfort of home

                        It only takes a few hours a week

                      You do not need to be physically fit

 

Now, before we explain what this “retirement life raft” is, let’s talk a little more about the current state of affairs and how we got into this mess in the first place.

We are going to be brutally honest here, because it’s important that you understand how urgent it is that you take matters into your own hands.

One recent Forbes article described it this way…

“We are on the precipice of the greatest retirement crisis in the history of the world. We will witness millions of elderly Americans, the Baby Boomers and others, slipping into poverty.”

There are 4 main reasons why the situation is so severe:

 

  1)  Corporate pensions have virtually been eliminated and public pensions are in jeopardy. Even if you’re lucky enough to have a pension, there’s no guarantee it will be there forever.

 

2)  The great “401k experiment” of the past 30 years has been a disaster.

Many Americans lost 38% of the value of their IRAs and 401(k)s from 2000 to 2003 when the stock market tanked.

Then in 2008, their retirement dreams were shattered (again) when they were hit with another 40% loss.

Putting your hard-earned money at the whims of the stock market is gambling with your retirement… and the odds are stacked against you.

 

   3)   Other supposedly “safe” investments, like real estate, aren’t much better.  The U.S. mortgage crisis a few years ago was a stark reminder that housing prices do NOT always go up, and putting your money in real estate can be just as risky (if not riskier) than the stock market.

 

    4)  More and more Baby Boomers are delaying retirement or trying to find work well past retirement age. With the economy the way it is, work is harder to find and the jobs that are available don’t pay enough to live on.

So, what’s the solution? 

The answer might surprise you…

It is a “secret” that the wealthy have known about for decades and have used to build massive fortunes safe from the ups and downs of market cycles.

 

This secret is…

Owning Your Own Business

 

About 76% of the world’s 500 wealthiest people – including Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and Mark Zuckerberg – all own their own businesses.

And they all have more money than they could spend in 10 lifetimes (not to mention one retirement).

According to the Kaufmann Foundation, baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) are twice as likely to launch a new business in 2015 compared to millennials.

Now before you say, “I don’t have the time, money, or experience to start my own business!” … Wait.

Because we have a solution for that too…
