    In some ways thinking like an entrepreneur is the most difficult thing. I’ve always been an employee and I don’t know how to be anything else.

    Maybe when you were a kid you had a lemonade stand or paper route. My wife sold some of our kids’ clothes on eBay and became addicted. Now everything she sees is a money making opportunity.

    Today you can post your skills on sites like Upwork.com and get freelance work. Start with something easy like this not some grand design that could intimidate you.

    I also recommend reading robert Kiyosaki’s ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad” for inspiration. It’s pure gold in explaining how to change your mindset.

    I had some success selling a few things on Ebay and it was a thrill but they were MY things. I’ve been downsizing for a couple of years now a little bit at a time. I’m working on a course at Udemy about Ebay selling but it’s slow going. I’m hoping 2018 will be the year I can earn some online income. Just trying to educate myself right now.

    Craigslist and ebay are a great start. Those checks are like little jolts of magic as you solved two problems–too much stuff and not enough money!

    I suggest you also sign up for Anton Kraly’s Free 10 Day Mini-Course on drop shipping here. Over 8000 people have taken his courses and I did too. This is free and very powerful.

    Good luck and let me know if I can help you

    Thanks, Ian. That’s a good idea. My wife has sold some items on Craigslist, maybe we can build from there. Never thought of that as ‘online income’ but I guess it is.

    In this video you mentioned planning in a ‘zero interest rate’ environment. That’s what’s got me so worried. I start running numbers assuming a 7 percent return and I feel like I’m just kidding myself.

    I’m 58, how do I keep cashflow going until I’m 88 when returns are so low?

    Point. Set. Match.

    You can’t earn at 7% these days and the new math will depress you. Maybe these days will come back, but you need to focus on filling your income gap through alternative sources.

    I’m in a group with a guy who just turned 80 and he’s learning drop shipping in case he or his wife need medical care as they grow older.

    This is the new reality Clyde. The very good news is you’re young and can take advantage of all of the tremendous opportunities today!

    I’m starting to see that I’m going to need a completely new source of income from what I have now. Where should I look in your program to get more knowledge about that? Is that something you can help me with?

    Section 6 is dedicated to exactly the notion that we will all need more income to attain the retirement we really want. Since you can’t save your way to prosperity, you need to embrace the many opportunities available today in the “New Economy”.

    By capitalizing on your skills and desires, you can leverage technology to your benefit in amazing ways. The opportunities are almost endless as people continue to buy more things– advice, services, and products- online.

    There are easy ways to get started and in Section 6 we discuss how technology becomes your friend, not the scary obstacle I once imagined.
