Medical problems can become a limiting factor in helping one pursue a career or grow professionally. This is particularly true for senior citizens. Take the example of Laing, who says, ‘I have had a lot of medical problems in the last couple of years, and found it hard to find a job that could accommodate these ailments. So, I decided to start my own business by having home shows and selling at flea markets and so on.’
Here are some great ideas for senior citizens who wish to make some extra income for themselves and their families.
Editorial Service – Copy writing, copyediting, ghost writing, book writing, magazine article writing, website content writing are some of the editorial services that are open for people of any age group. The basic pre-requisite here is to have a great writing style, eye for detail and excellent language and grammar skills.
Online Buying and Selling Expert – This is one of the most lucrative home-based business ideas available today. Senior citizens can specialize in selling just one type of item or sell a variety of items. A computer and Internet connection would suffice combined with registering with any one of the leading liquidation sites like liquidation.com or us.ebid.net or, auctions.overstock.com.
Says Liang ‘I couldn't believe the merchandise I could get at such great prices. So I decided to add it to my existing business. The sales were great. I can charge such a low price and still make excellent profit. I will continue to buy from Liquadation.com and can see my business flourish. Thank you Liquidation.com for being there when I needed the help.
Another fan of liquidation.com, Bill Rice quotes, ‘I was recently unemployed after 15 years of service, I was not sure what to do so I went on Liquidation.com and started looking for items I could purchase to supplement my income. I bought a beautiful diamond ring for a great low price, the ring showed up at my house and I was so surprised how nice it was. I placed an ad on an online auction site for one week and made enough off that transaction to keep our household running for two weeks. Liquidation.com helped me out!’
With online opportunities abounding the Internet, it sure seems a safe haven for senior citizens to invest their time and money in it.
