Retired? Need Some Extra Cash?

Aug 4, 2008
Are you retired? Are you considering part-time work to make some extra cash? Have you ever considered the Internet as a means of making that extra cash? Questions, questions, questions! Well, here is an idea for you.

Technology has become much simpler over recent years. The learning curves are not as severe as they once were. The invention of the mouse and the Window's operating system has made operating a computer easier than ever. So, why not have a look at the Internet as a means of making money. With all the experience that a retired person possesses from years of employment and hobbies, this medium is definitely worth taking a look at. And, the great thing about working online is that you can work-at-home. No long commutes to work. No 9 to 5 either, your hours can be flexible so you can still enjoy your retirement. Plus, your online business can lead to that extra income you're looking for.

What would you need to get an online business started? There are no special skills required for this home-based-business. But, you would need the confidence that you can be successful with an online business regardless of your computer or Internet experience and skills. And that would be just basic computer and Internet knowledge. Surfing the Net, reading and sending emails, creating webpages and uploading them, really are not that difficult to figure out. Most eight year olds can do it at a drop of a hat, it is that easy. Then of course you will need a computer and Internet service, but since you are reading this article you already have that.

Next is the question, "What kind of Internet business should I look at?" I am going to suggest eBay. eBay is an online auction community allowing it's members the opportunity to both buy and sell items online. The eBay site is very easy to use. You won't even need any inventory to get you started! Why? Well, you know all that stuff around your home you've been wanting to get rid of, sell it on eBay. That's right, sell it on eBay. You can clean out your closets, basement, or garage and make some extra cash at the same time. As well if you have a hobby making crafts, these items can be sold on eBay too.

Selling on eBay can be a most rewarding venture. Once you get your closets cleaned out ;-) you can then graduate to using Dropshippers, from there maybe using Liquidators. As explained in my book "eBay Marketing Wholesale SourcePak" using Dropshippers is a smart way to get your Auction Business up and running, especially in the beginning as you won't have to invest in costly inventory. From there the sky is the limit, the products are endless. If you have something worth selling, you are bound to find someone on eBay who wants to buy it. So, if you are looking for some part-time work to make that extra cash. Work for yourself, have a look at eBay!

Happy Selling!
