Why I Started An Online Business In My Seventies

After qualifying as a pharmacist, I worked for four decades in the public and private health sectors, often having to change jobs, just to maintain my standard of living.

Selling my time for money, neither allowed me to start my own business nor to accumulate enough funds to provide for my retirement.

As the years went by, I found myself having to spend, more and more time, away from my home and family.

I would leave at the crack of dawn and drive in heavy traffic, only to return back home, late at night, to a hastily prepared TV dinner, too exhausted to do anything else.

This "Old Way" of working, selling my time for money, left me unfulfilled and I was unable to point to any worthwhile achievement that I could be proud of.

My relationships were adversely affected, I was always under stress, my health was deteriorating and all my dreams and aspirations fell by the roadside.

When I reached retirement age, I realized that I could not afford to retire and had to continue working even harder!

I continued to eke out a living as best I could, but the four decades of standing on my feet all day, had taken their toll; my back, knee and foot problems continued to deteriorate and I spent more and more time in hospital.

After several medical procedures I returned to work, but I just could no longer continue to exert myself physically anymore.

Even with regular treatments I was finding it difficult to get through a day at work without resorting to taking pain killers.

I was seriously considering stopping work, but that would have left me with no source of income.

The thought of ending up in a state run home for the aged terrified me.

Enter March 2020

With massive retrenchments being commonplace, my boss thought that it was the perfect time to let me go.

So, a month after turning 72, I was suddenly retrenched and became just another workforce statistic!

I tried for several months to find a job that was less demanding physically, with no success.

I soon realized that even if I managed to find another job, it would only be a temporary solution and it would not provide me with enough income to facilitate my retirement.

There are over 7.9 billion people on this planet right now. Every single one of them is facing their own unique problems, as a consequence of the global crisis. 

The situation was not likely to get better, any time soon and I had to come up with a "Plan B" fast. This was not the time to procrastinate!

My goal was to find an alternative way to earn a good income, that was less demanding physically.

I knew that I wanted to make use of the internet, to earn an income from home without having to over-exert myself physically, at my age.

I had no idea what to do and how to go about it!

I had many questions and no answers:

  • What type of business would provide sufficient, recession-proof income for my retirement?
  • What type of business would be less physically demanding, at my age?
  • Was I too old to start an online business in my seventies?
  • Was it possible to start a business without previous business experience or knowledge of computer programming?
  • What infrastructure and capital were required to set it up?
  • What new skills would I need to learn to get started?
  • How difficult would it be to learn any new skills, at my age?
  • Was there a business type, out there, that would allow me more free time to spend with my family and to enjoy my recreational activities?
  • Would the business be sustainable?

How I Discovered An "Alternative Way" to Earn a Good Income:

After the initial shock, I started researching on the internet for alternative sources of income that were feasible and practical for my age and current experience.

After coming across a series of free introductory videos, on the internet, I decided to follow the same training path that so many others before me, had followed and were now living the life, I wanted to live!

This training platform introduced me to "Authority Marketing" which is "The Modern Wealthy Way" of earning and growing online income, without having to work insane hours.

What's the use of all that income, if you're "tied" to your job, unable to take any time off to enjoy the fruits of your labour?

How I Replaced My Lost Income

Soon after viewing the free introductory videos series, I joined the same worldwide online community, that was already living the life, I wanted to live!

The beauty of this method is that most of the day-to-day tasks can be automated to run 24/7, all year round, generating online income for me, even when I'm not working!

If you're unable to continue working because of an injury or ill-health, then ...

Stop Procrastinating!

Here are some of the reasons why I started my own online income streams from scratch in my seventies:

  • My age was not a barrier to starting my own business
  • No infrastructure or large amounts of capital were required
  • All that I needed was an internet connection and a laptop to get started immediately
  • I was able to work from my home or on the move with WiFi access
  • I came to realize that, by using a cellphone and computer, I already had some basic digital skills
  • I was able to structure my time for work and play to suit my needs
  • I did not need to keep any stock or require any extra premises
  • I no longer had to commute to and from work in heavy traffic
  • All my hard hard work was for my own benefit
  • I had time to watch my diet and look after my health
  • I started to be more relaxed and enjoyed quality sleep
  • Once set up, most of the day-to-day tasks could be automated to run 24/7, all year round, generating income for me, even while I slept
  • I was able to spend more time with family, enjoy my recreational activities and go on holiday again, without worrying that it would affect my income

So, what's it going to be?
