Greed In America – How To Retire Safe
Greed and Your Retirement
Taking a look at Greed in America I really started looking into how to retire safe. I was 37 years old when this subject really started to get my attention. Back surgery for me was imminent and I really had to start thinking about my future and if I could survive off of disability or SSI if the surgery was not successful. Overwhelmed with fear and anxiety I had to come to grips with the fact that I may not be returning to the trades which was how I supported my family. I had not yet saved enough money in my IRA and would be slammed with taxes if they money was taken out early. This all took place at a time in my life where corporate greed and abuses of power were at the center of attention.
People were taking to the streets in protest Occupying Wall Street.
Life savings were lost when the market crashed.
Auto manufacturers needed Government Bail outs to stay afloat.
Big Banks with abuse at the highest levels were taking Government Bail Outs.
These events along with others not listed had me deeply worried and concerned for my family and our financial future. My retirement was not safe at all and the worst part was, I had no idea what to do about it. That being said I am going to tell you the path I chose to start securing my future and give my family some sort of security. There is happiness to share during this dark time in my life. I am going to show you exactly what I did to take control of my finances and take the path to financial freedom.

So What Is Affiliate marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is an arrangement where a online seller (retailer) Pays a commission to an External website for sales and traffic generated from the external websites sales, traffic, or referrals. I was a little nervous at first but I found a platform which gave me top of the line training along with 2 absolutely FREE websites to get me started. If you think this is a hard task you are wrong I can show you how to build 2 absolutely free websites which I write about right here on this site. The Information I am giving you is Free so take advantage of it. Here is information on how to get your 2 Free websites up and running in a matter of minutes.
Your Life Your Terms
I decided to take action and not let the uncertainty of social security and 401k type of plans determine how I an going to live my life during my retirement years as well as now. These methods simply cannot be trusted, there is way to much uncertainty, with the greed and corruption I have seen at the highest levels in both government and corporate America I just can not bank on it. Here are the 4 steps I took to take control and live life on my own terms.
. Step One
Pick a niche, if you are not sure what a niche is I will explain. Your niche is going to be what your website (your business) is going to be about. Your niche can be anything you are interested in and have some knowledge or you are passionate about. This could be anything the possibilities are endless. For example, lets say you are into Golf. This can be what your website is about. Now lets narrow it down because golf alone is a pretty wide niche, you can incorporate golf clubs, golf apparel, golf carts, booking Tee times and so on. How about Women’s shoes, this is another niche you can also narrow down and make multiple sources of income off of just 1 website. For example you can earn money from Clothing, jewelry, accessories, and so on. One of my niches is Legitimate ways to make money online. If you read about me then you know in the beginning I fell victim to a lot of scams and I vowed not only to expose these scam artists but also to find Honest and ethical ways to earn money from home online. With the Knowledge I have now I can tap into any niche I choose and conquer it.
Build A Website. I know this sounds tough but it’s nowhere near as complicated as you may think. Do you remember what I said earlier? I had no experience at all in affiliate marketing until I started thinking about my retirement and what I was going to do after back surgery. The training I found at Wealthy Affiliate was a major turning point In my life. I had my website up and running in just a few minutes for Free. Now all I had to do was follow the training, work hard, and be patient. Don’t get me wrong I was nervous and scared but my desire to create a lasting and profitable business kept me going. I Absolutely refuse to let social security or greedy Wall Street determine how I live out my retirement years.
. Step Three
Get Traffic (visitors) To Your Site. I know on your way home from work or anywhere else you travel on the roads most of us aren’t very fond of traffic, but in the online world we need traffic to generate sales. Don’t worry this isn’t as hard as you may think. Getting traffic is done naturally through the content you put on your website. The more helpful and honest your content is the more visitors will visit your website. Helpful and honest content is essential to your success online. Yes keywords help but what is the point of a good keyword if you don’t have trust? All this and more are covered in complete detail in the online training that helped me to run a successful business online.
Get Paid. This is what it all comes down to, it’s time to start reaping the benefits of your hard work. Let’s review! You have chosen your niche, you have a website, you have traffic, and now you need to get paid. Although I saved this for last it is actually the easiest part of the process. You have already done all the hard work. Now you need to choose an affiliate program for your niche. This is so simple it’s not even funny. It really doesn’t matter what your selling because there is a Affiliate program for almost anything. I will use my golf niche as an example. I just typed in Golf Affiliate Marketing programs and found this, and YES it is that easy. The other three steps is where the hard work is done.
These four simple steps are the exact steps I took to create my online business and I have to say I have never looked back. I am so grateful and blessed to have found a way to create a online income and not have to be dependent on someone else’s idea of how I am going to get by when I retire or how I live my life now. I endured a lot of hard times and encountered a lot of scams to be able to bring you this information. I hope the information I have shared with you was helpful and informative. If you have decided you would like to change your life and take control of your future please continue to read my brief description of the training I am offering you for Free.

My name is Jason Taft I began my career as a collision repair tech in 1986. I absolutely love working on cars and I still work at a friends auto body shop part time managing the floor as I can no longer physically keep up with the physical demand of working on the floor. In 2009 I was told that I was going to need back surgery in the near future. This got me thinking what I was going to do to support my family and what would happen to the little bit of money I had saved for retirement. I realized I could not count on anyone but myself to take control of my future. My 401k took a big hit when the market tanked and if I were to go on disability I would barely survive. In 2011 I began looking for ways to make money online only to spend thousand on scams. I learned a lot in 2011 and vowed to expose these scam artist and find a legit way to make money online. My research finally paid of when I was just about to give up. This is why I wrote this post and created this website. I hope that the information I provide is helpful and inspiring.
