Wake Up Baby Boomers – There’s Still Time

Over 90% of all retired Americans will be forced to live on less than $12,000 a year!
Yes, I have to admit it. I am an aging Baby Boomer! Our first grandchild was born last year. Does it make me feel older? Not necessarily. It’s all a matter of outlook and attitude to life.
O.K. Physically I’m starting to get some of aches and pains that come with aging process. But mentally I’m still in my mid-twenties. (Sometimes a heck of a lot younger, so my Wife often tells me!)
The 1960’s covered my mid-teens and mid-twenties. What a great era that was in England (where I was born and raised – we have been living in Canada since 1981.) Would you believe I saw Rolling Stones in concert before they hit big time! They had just released their first record.
Ah yes. Life was simpler then. Life was sweet. No home computers, no cell phones, no Internet. But now, of course we have all of these things and take them for granted. Especially computers and Internet.
Never before in history has it been possible for so many people to have their own home business using these powerful tools.
This truly is age of mass communication and information sharing.
The question is, have us Baby Boomers been left behind in this huge technological wake? Have we missed boat?
I believe answer to this is an emphatic “NO!”
Like I said, growing up in sixties was great. Retirement was a lifetime away. But, my friend, lifetime has a nasty habit of passing by all too quickly. Believe me, I know!
So we live our lives, enjoying each day that comes (or at least trying to), still thinking that retirement is a long way off. After all, there’s mortgage to pay; a new car would be nice; we could really do with a vacation this year; kitchen could do with a makeover. And then it hits you like a ton of bricks. The milestone of your 60’th birthday is creeping up REALLY fast … TOO fast.
