When I retired, (yes, lazy and happy) I gave myself a full year off before I started serious work on a website. To get ready for that I took a course from AWAI (website is awaionline.com) first on copywriting, and later on money making websites.
I really recommend the programs at AWAI for someone who wants to get started, but doesn’t know how, or where to start. This could be a writing career, or it could be a website, writing for marketing, for information and referral, or for travel. There are plenty of other areas that they encourage.
Why do I want to start a website and make some money? Because I like the idea of being able to travel, or to live abroad for a period of time and be able to make money from wherever I happen to be. My image of myself is sitting at an outdoor table, at a cafe, looking out at an interesting street, or in a square, beautiful weather being a given. I don’t get that in Minnesota, at least not for about 9 months of the year.
So I want the freedom to earn some money, to write, to be where ever I happen to be, whether it is in my office at home, or on a deck overlooking the Caribbean (next week!) or sitting in a cafe, on a square, in Chile, or Italy, or France (my future).
Nice dreams. Now to make them happen.
