Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #269

Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

Why do so many online sellers keep on working into retirement? There are a number of excellent reasons. For starters, the average Social Security check for seniors in the USA is $1,404. That’s the average; many earn less. You can’t live on that.

So if you work your entire life for others and end up with a monthly income of $1,404 in your old age, you will have to work — and/or live with others in small spaces.

Next, for many seniors, selling online is actually enjoyable compared to certain insults that may come your way out in the workforce, and it’s mostly accomplished from home, with the entrepreneur (you) in charge.

Finally, by the time you reach retirement age, you may just be fed up with Mondays being back-to-work days. Keep your cool, save as much as possible, and consider selling into your later years.
