Can Baby Boomers Afford To Retire?

Can Baby Boomers Afford To Retire?

by Betsy Smith

Dollars funnel.I have been reading statistics about baby boomers, and most will not have the luxury of retiring at 65 or maybe ever.  The Employee Benefit Research Institute just released a study that said that only 13% surveyed feel confident retiring.  And 57% have less than $25,000 in investment and savings.

Many have debt and lack a short-term cushion.  Many are sandwiched between aging parents and kids in college.  Some report that they have no realistic idea of what it will take to retire, but are concerned that even with Social Security their bills will not be covered.

That may be why so many are joining the direct selling industry.  Some of the big benefits are low cost of entry, freedom to work around your own schedule, and the ability to live wherever you want.

The first step is to find the right company.  Having been in the industry for over eight years I have seen it all.  I have found that it is important to find a company with a consumable product (something that is used up and needs to be reordered).   The right compensation plan is also critical.  And corporate leaders who have experience may be the most important.

I was in a company with a powerful product but the founders were in over their head and it failed.  I have been in companies with several different kinds of compensation plans and I know from experience what to look for in a marketing plan.

I was lucky enough after what I like to call “boot camp” in the industry to hear about Nerium International.  I joined when the company was about 8 months old.  I kicked all the tires and they were doing everything right.  Nerium’s Founders are Jeff Olson, an icon in the industry and Dennis Windsor, another veteran in the industry.  And even in that short time I could see they knew what they were doing.

It has proved to be the best decision of my life.  We just announced that in our first FULL year with just one product (Nerium AD anti-aging night cream) and in just the US we had $100 million in revenues.  With plans to expand globally and with a line of products ready to be launched the future is bright.

Joining Nerium gives a new Brand Partner the opportunity of a GROUND FLOOR business with a company that has already proven itself.  Nerium has already  broken many  records!  We are the first NEW company to hit the top 100 GLOBAL companies in the industry so quickly.  The average company on the list took over 12 years to be on that list.

There Are Superheroes Among Us

  There Are Superheroes Among Us by Amy Lignor   This story truly proves that a superhero does not require a cape, tights, or the ability to fly. In a world where all headlines seem to be centered around who shot who, who is being put upon, who’s “getting away with it” – all the way to who is getting divorced and who may or may not be kneeling at NFL games – negative stories seem to be the only ones covered anymore by the media. … [Read More its Good for You...]
