How much money do you need to retire happily and wealthy?
When planning for the amount of income you’ll need for retirement, it’s important to think about all of the potential sources of income you’ll have.
For most seniors, these income sources include Social Security and retirement accounts. For some people, employer-provided pensions also provide some income — but pensions are more common for government workers than for people who worked in the private sector.

Baby Boomers and Affiliate Marketing a great way to earn extra income.
I am into Affiliate Marketing, and I am doing it because it is a passive income?
“Passive Income” Is not the meaning that you do nothing and the money falls into your lap that is not what passive income is in affiliate marketing. I know a lot of gurus make you believe that you earn money overnight without doing anything.
In this business affiliate marketing, there is work involved it is fun and gives you satisfaction when you see your chosen products sell. There is work involved and it is for everyone the same.
A Short Intro On What Is Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate Marketing is promoting other peoples products without having to buy or keep them in stock. If you search on google for it than it says “A marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.”
Affiliate Marketing what to expect?
#you will promote a service or product to your customers/audience
#your customer when they buy the product or service through your affiliate link
#than you will earn a commission from this sale through your link
#no physical product needed, you promote other people’s product ( you can see as being a marketing agent for different companies you promote)
Affiliate marketing is a performance-based business. You will learn skills and training and those are offered from online programs. I am part of an online program as I like to do it right from the beginning and I don’t want to waste time and money.
There are lots of programs out there and a lot of scams. I have been fallen few times into the trap of scams and spend my money on totally useless scams. Don’t be like me and burn a couple of thousand dollars just for nothing only an experience that you knew better. Join a serious platform with trackable success. Learn it from the beginning step by step at your own pace and share your progress with the community.

If you ask me if you can I run a successful business by only using free memberships and free videos? you can do all the research on the world wide web and don’t need to pay for it. Honestly yes, that is possible.
But why would you spend so much time in re-inventing the wheel instead of paying a small amount in getting all the knowledge, training, experience, and a great community all in one place. Already organized in steps by the Owners Kyle and Carson. You benefit from there experience as they were in your shoes before.
I understand the meaning of free, but I believe that if you build a business, a small investment is required to get off the ground the same it goes for an online business.
I know a few people who run their online business for a couple of years now and have not made one single cent they believe in freebies.
I believe if you get all for free you attract the same crowd. A crowd who wants all for free, how can you ever make money? It is all a matter of the mind. Alike attracts each other.
