I recently spent some time on Lynda.com, a site owned by LinkedIn that has over 5000 video tutorials on a wide range of business, technology and creative skills topics. Membership starts at $19.95 a month, but increasing numbers of public libraries (including mine!) provide access to Lynda’s courses for free. (And you can take advantage of the 10-day free trial period if you want to test out the site before purchasing a membership).
It’s an incredible resource filled with wide-range of classes that can help jumpstart your second-act business. Here are just a few of the titles that you might find intriguing:
Sell on Etsy (online e-tailer for crafty types)
There are plenty more courses of interest. Check it out – and let me know what you think!
Why do you want to work part-time in retirement?
I realize that might strike you as a strange question. After all, the obvious answer is: to supplement my retirement income. But beyond the paycheck, what do you hope to get out of working?
It’s an important question to ponder. Because when you really understand what’s most important to you about working — both the financial rewards and intrinsic motivators like finding joy from helping others — it becomes far easier to zero in on satisfying options.
