Hi, my name is Virgil Cook and I am one of many Baby Boomers born in August of 1949,

and like many, if not most of us  Baby Boomers. I have had some ups and downs over the years and have made some not so good financial choices in my life.  I would guess that there are a lot of Baby Boomers afraid of outliving their retirement savings at this very moment. I took a major hit in my retirement account when the market took a dump. and lost well over 50 percent of those funds.  Like most of you at that time we are too far into the commitment of our retirement years to rebuild at a rate that would earn us those funds back. Also, many baby boomers are finding themselves upside down in their now ‘not worth a damn’ houses due to the housing crisis. Baby BoomersNow as Baby Boomers we are used to shaking things up. Due to large numbers, and political activism, baby boomers have transformed America at every stage of their lives.  The baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 and numbering more than 76 million, baby boomers are the largest generation born in America so far.

Now the Great Recession has hit many baby boomers hard.  

They are dealing with decreased value in their retirement funds, decreased value in their homes, and job layoffs.  As a result, the number of baby boomers who are ill-prepared for retirement is increasing. I am one of those baby boomers that was laid-off from a job that I had had for over 22 years… Check out my video here:

    Do you hear that rumble in the distance? That is the Baby Boomers!   Baby Boomers are getting ready to retire.  Millions upon millions of them are rushing towards retirement age, and they have been promised that the rest of us are going to take care of them.  Only there is a huge problem.  We don’t have the money.  It simply isn’t there.  But the millions of Baby Boomers getting ready to retire are counting on that money to be there.  This all comes at a really bad time for a federal government that is already flat broke, and for a national economy that is already teetering on the brink of disaster. The moment when the first Baby Boomers reach retirement age has arrived. The day of reckoning that so many have talked about for so many years is here. Today, America’s elderly (baby boomers) are living longer and the cost of health care is rising dramatically.  Those two factors are going to make it incredibly expensive to take care of all of these retiring Baby Boomers. The sad truth is that the vast majority of Baby Boomers have not adequately saved for retirement.  For many baby boomers, their home equity was destroyed by the recent financial crisis.  For others, their 401k’s were devastated when the stock market took a trip to the toilet and never returned. Meanwhile, company pension plans across America are totally underfunded.  Many state and local government pension programs are absolute disasters.  The federal government has already begun to pay out more in Social Security benefits than they are taking in, and the years ahead look downright bleak, for the Social Security program. Beginning January 1st, 2011 every single day, more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach the age of 65.  That is going to keep happening every single day for the next nineteen years.  State and local governments are scrambling to find ways to pay out all the benefits that they have been promising.  Many state and local governments will be forced into some very hard choices by the hordes of Baby Boomers that will now be retiring. In the long term, what you strive for, might well be the peace of mind, that you have enough to retire, travel at will, or help your children or grandchildren so that they don’t need to struggle.   Only YOU can decide what success means to you. Having the luxury of working from home with an Internet Marketing business is one way to help achieve your desire for success.  Being your own boss in charge of your own time and freedom, appeals to many who want to continue to work, but on their own terms. The freedom of a home-based business is appealing to more baby boomers that want or need to supplement their retirement nest egg. Check out this true story:

There was a doctor that knew he needed to take control of his destiny when at 73 years old;  he found,  that he had lost his entire retirement savings. He had been a successful surgeon, but along the way, had made one too many wrong financial decisions.  Taking responsibility and having to start over in his seventies took unbelievable courage.  However, he knew that if he didn’t, the consequences looked far from pretty. He turned to the Internet for salvation.  He quickly realized that there were money making opportunities galore.  He knew absolutely nothing about marketing on the Internet, but he did know that he had the determination to learn new skills to be successful.  Today that doctor is in a far more favorable position than he ever was at the height of his medical career.

The moral of this story, which is very true, is that ‘with a burning desire and a lot of determination to succeed’, anything is possible. If you are a Baby Boomer, what are you going to do to supplement your retirement income before you outlive your savings? Myself, I have tried many things in my life and during my time as an Internet Marketer.  I have belonged to several different companies.  I had started out trying the old school way of marketing, where you make a list of all your friends, family, and bother the person in line with you at the grocery store with your pitch.  All of this was done with very little success, I might add, as I am sure you can probably relate to. So, what does this have to do with baby boomers supplementing your retirement savings before you become a dinosaur, you may be asking? I have found there are two different ways that you can go about creating success on the Internet. The first one is a very slow process causing you to do all kinds of trial and error with the hopes of finding success on your own. Most often, creating many failures along the way and with very little success as well. I found this out the hard way myself, almost losing all of my money, my house, and almost everything that I had worked for all my life.  That is when I found the second way of creating success on the Internet. I found a good marketing system called The 7 Figure Networker System.  Let me explain. What a good marketing system will do for you is give you all of the training, information, and marketing tools you need to get your ball rolling towards the success you are searching for.  I also found that if you truly want to achieve success in the fastest way possible, you also need good coaching and mentoring. That is when I found the Mastermind Partner Program (MPP).  This is a group of people dedicated to helping each other as well as helping beginners and intermediates, through hands on coaching and mentoring.  Hands on training is what works best for me and probably the way that most baby boomers do their best work. .  My recommendation is this: If you are looking for a way to get started or create faster success on the Internet, then you need to hook-up with a good system and find some good coaching & mentoring. When you decide which one of these two marketing tools, or maybe you decide that both are equally important, then be sure to get back to me at vcook1956@gmail.com  and I will get you set up right away. As one Baby Boomer to another, if you need any more information related to marketing on the Internet, be sure to let me know.  Have a great day and I will talk to you again soon.
