Retirement is a welcome relief for many people to sit back and fully relax (perhaps somewhere lovely and sunny)! However, there are those people who worry that they might get a little bored and so might like a small business project to sink their teeth into! It’s also possible that some people will end up with financial problems during retirement, which might mean that they would benefit from a side project for extra cash. Starting a small business remotely can allow those who are retired to gain some money and to utilize the talents gained throughout their life. If you’re a retired person who thinks that they like the sound of this, let’s delve into some money-making projects that are  accessible for the retired. 

Arts, Crafts & Vintage 

Perhaps you’re someone who has a creative talent? It might be drawing, painting, crocheting or pottery? If so, there are plenty of online marketplaces out there whereby you can set up an online shop to sell the goods that you make from home for monetary gain. One of the most popular online marketplaces for such opportunities is Etsy. It’s easy to set up an online shop here plus the fees are low. Etsy is also a great place to sell vintage items. If you have any unwanted vintage goods at home- you could use these to drive your business forward. Projects like this can be a really fun way to keep your brain active during retirement plus get a little money in your pocket too. Aged Care Furniture can be a great purchase to help you create a nice working from home space. Remember to take regular breaks to stretch and move around so not to do yourself an injury. 

Writing Projects 

You’ll likely have earned yourself much knowledge throughout the course of your career; whether it was in law, medicine, business, teaching or food. Now is a great time to share your knowledge with the world, via the power of the written word! Many people enjoy creating a blog that’s themed around their expertise and passion and end up turning their blog into a money-making tool. You can purchase affiliate marketing links online and work them into your writing. By doing so, you’ll stand to earn a commission any time that someone who clicks on a link purchases the associated product. If your blog is related to your homemade projects, it can also be used as an excellent marketing tool. 

Tutor school children 

 Many retired people enjoy tutoring children from home; there may be a particular topic you enjoy be it maths, English or science.  Parents are often looking for someone to offer extra help at a good price. For retired teachers, this is a particularly great idea, and the credibility that you have earned throughout your career should help you to gain students. In a digitized world, it’s easier than ever to advertise services online. You will also be able to do this around the local stores or community centres in your town if you prefer. 

Retirement is a time to earn some well-earned relaxation, yet this doesn’t mean that you have to find yourself with nothing to do! If you’re looking for some extra income during your retirement years, there are plenty of options out there that could be just what you are looking for.
