This is the road you travel to get to New Zealand’s famous Mount Cook. I took this picture, and several more, standing in the middle of the road. The vehicle in the distance was the only one we saw for about an hour. A big wide, empty road, stretching for miles in an even bigger, empty landscape and with this iconic mountain in the distance. Fantastic!
I suspect most of us were raised and educated to work as hard as we could, pass our exams, get a good job and work until we’re 65 then have a happy retirement.
Sound familiar? Is that what your parents and teachers told you? This cartoon seamed to sum up many people’s thoughts on this traditional plan:
Well, we all know that JOB stands for “Just Over Broke” – earn just enough to keep you there.
The newspaper headline ‘One in 10 of over-65s are still in work: More than a million people have now put off retirement’.
It doesn’t have to be that way!
What is retirement? For many it is the time when they can stop working in a 40+ hour a week job and change their lifestyle. Perhaps working part-time to get out of the house and bring in some extra money as well as having plenty of time to do the things that really matter, family, friends, hobbies etc.
But for someone over 50 or 60, what is working part-time these days? Stacking shelves? Cashier at the petrol station? Cleaning?
There has to be a better way than that! And there is.
A recent headline ‘Terror of being the work experience girl at 50: Surrounded by tech-savvy young people and getting paid NOTHING’. Why?
Why would someone in their 40s, 50s or even more mature want to work in a strange environment and get paid little or nothing for it? I’m sure there are some good reasons out there but there must be a better way!
For anyone, not just mums, looking to get back into work there is an alternative. To me, our business is the ideal vehicle to help people get back into work AND earn some money.
The disturbing headlines recently – more than 1 Million over 55’s in the UK who have lost their job, often through redundancy, have little or no prospect of getting a meaningful or worthwhile job again.
For many this could lead to them losing their savings, even their homes; tragically, for some the pressures are too much. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
