Give Yourself a Retirement Gift!

By | November 18, 2014

The Best Retirement Gift


As I was sitting here at my computer, working on my websites, like I do everyday, I began to think about this being the

“season of gift-giving”

I have a limited number of gifts to worry about selecting this season:

  • My husband’s birthday gift (on December 27th)
  • My mother-in-law’s Christmas gift
  • My Granddaughter Amy’s birthday gift
  • My Granddaughter Jeanne’s birthday gift
  • Christmas gifts for my Daughter, SIL and grandson
  • Christmas gifts for my step-daughter, SIL and three grand-daughters
  • My own Christmas and birthday (on December 21st) gifts (since this is something my dh wants me to do for myself)

Mel is an only child and my two sisters and I have a December “Sister’s Luncheon” instead of exchanging gifts.  So its not a lot of deciding and purchasing for me.  However, since I’m in a wheelchair, shopping can be somewhat difficult for me.  I certainly avoid any of those “crazy” shopping days like “Black Friday” and the “Week of Christmas.”  I mostly do my shopping online right here at my computer – so much easier.

As I was thinking about all this, I realized that my own gifts were taken care of already.  About a month ago I decided to “gift myself” with a prepaid year of my online internet marketing training from Wealthy Affiliates.  I was extremely happy with that decision because now I know I have at least a year to work on my training and websites with help from mentors and WA friends  and I also saved a gob of money.

Normally my premium membership is $47/month for a total of $564/year.  Paying by year is only $359/year, costing about $29.91/month.  That’s significant savings of $205 for the year.

In addition, included in that membership is hosting for my five different ” .com” websites and my 3 test websites free, saving me $500 in hosting fees for those sites for the year.  GREAT SAVINGS!

$47/month for 12 months = $564 for the year

$29.91/month for 12 months = $357 for the year

$564 minus $357 = $205 savings for the year

$99.50/year web hosting x 5 websites = $500

$205 plus $500 = $705 TOTAL savings

That’s pretty awesome in savings for me, plus I get all the wonderful internet marketing and affiliate website training that is available through Wealthy Affiliates.

 

Increasing My Retirement Income


And yet another terrific gain is that these websites will soon be earning me extra income in my retirement years.  My goal is to increase my monthly retirement income by $2000 a month by the time my husband is retired a few years from now.  I know that I can do it, because I’m committed and I’ve talked with several WA members who already live each month totally  on the earnings from their websites.

Here are links to several success stories from just the last few months.

Is this “Work from Home” Opportunity for You?


Many people will say they would love to work from home and think they mean it; however working from home is not for everyone.  YES, it  is from home and “YES’, you do get to set your own hours, and “YES” you can work in your PJs.  However it is still WORK and working from 10-30 hours a week that includes: study, creativity and meaningful thinking and somewhat of the “gift of gab” to write your content.

      Thanks Jared for your comment. And yes, the yearly option is great – it was a relief for me to know I have an entire year paid for – kinda made it a true commitment on my part. Go for it! Shirley

    Congratulation on your gift to yourself! My birthday is also December 21 🙂 I also just gifted myself a WA annual membership. Of course, it would have been better on Black Friday, but I am happy with my decision. Now I can work knowing I have a year to get this running. It does take hard work, and time to build up, but it can be done! Best of Luck to you!
