When would you like to retire? 1 year? 2 years? 5 years? 10 years? Great! What is your plan to achieve this goal? How much money do you need monthly to retire comfortably? $1000 $2000 $3000 $5000 or more? Great! What is your plan to receive this monthly income? How much do you need to invest at 6% return to receive your monthly income? (Multiply your previous answer by 200) Great! What is your plan to accumulate this money? I got a questionnaire like this in my email today, it has been used in network marketing to adjust the thinking of a prospect from negative to positive? How did it make you feel? Would you like more information? Are you set in your plans already?

in as much as i would like to retire, i cannot do it yet because i still lack the money. maybe i would have to have around 1 million dollars? because out of this i still have to feed my children and college nowadays is very expensive. im already 45 and thinking about retirement already, but i just cant.. not as of now.

Have you yet considered a home based business? There are many ways to speed up your retirement. I have a book on my Shelf called "how to get rich without winning the lottery" if you like I could share some of the tactics from that book.

I'm still very young, so the thought of retirement for me is but a pipe dream, I still have two young children that I need to put through school and I need to also think about getting all of our debt paid off as well. But, I'll still bite. Based on our income right now, to comfortably retire, we would have to have an income after tax dollars of 3500 dollars. Actually, that would make us more comfortable then we currently are. Do we have a plan to accumlate this money? In short the answer is no. That all said, I would love for you to send me information.

I just relearned you are in Tupperware. That makes the information I was going to share here, a little redundant, but shared it shall be because it is an excellent tool for that kind of business. http://www.fortunenow.com/public/images/areyouwalkingbrochure.pdf There every one has it now, give that a read. Any further questions, comments, etc can be directed to me on any discussion I have participated in or directly into my inbox. For you I have an even better tool, if you like, since you are already kind of doing what that pamphlet introduces people to. http://mlmguidanceebook.info

What is it that you do that you can retire when you are tired of it or when you do it seriously?

I would retire 30 years from now. Based on my computation I should get a good some of money from the company I am working right now. Hope that at least a year from now I'll move again one tep higher in the corporate ladder until I finally reached my final goal. :) I am also saving money for my retirement. My family (hubby, me and baby) has a health care plan. Baby is going to have an educational plan and hopefully within this year we will get our own home. Based on my computation if we will get the house within this year we can have it fully paid before we both retire. I just hope everything else will turn out fine. :)

Great. As long as the company you work for holds to its end of the deal and sticks around for you. You have it well planned out it seems that is wonderful for you! Would it be okay if I shared with you away to reduce that time frame?

You don't have the choice? Everyone has the choice. I wouldn't want to work for that long.

HI! If I could, I will retire right now and travel all over the world, but I must work at least 37 year to get retire! Hope I will be alive after that time to enjoy the life as I can!

37 years? Wow that is along time. I am glad you already have your plan. I am going to retire before I am 30. I have a really good plan. I could share that with you if you like, and then you could retire before 37 years. Cheers.

I haven't seriously thought about my retirement. I just go ahead in life as it comes. There's no such plan as if now. Sometimes I realize that it is high time to think about it seeriously.

You do need a plan. It is always something to be thinking about. I have a plan, I can share mine with you if you like. Cheers.

I am the type of person who focuses more on today (and yesterday although I wish I didn't) and not tomorrow. My husband had a 401K plan set up through his company, but about a year and a half ago we took all the money out because things were a little tight for us, and we haven't begun putting money back into it yet. Our problem is things are always a little tight for us. We always need a few more bucks to help us with bills, and of course there are things we want too, like to be able to go on an outing as a family, or better yet, a vacation!! So we don't stop and think about how we're going to survive 20 years from now. We just sort of hope that some day things will work out. Right now we have to figure out how to raise 5 kids on a single income, and we keep saying that when the kids are older we'll be able to have 2 incomes so that will help us. Who knows what the future brings... hopefully it will bring a little less tension for our financial lives!!

I know how that goes, in the past it seemed every time I was getting ahead and having money in the bank, something would happen and I would have to withdraw it to get the bill paid...and this started at 18 mind you, with my first GIC(it is a Canadian Government Savings Bond) and strangely enough, I had to withdraw it to pay taxes~what a way to start out in the world, and since then it has gotten worse and worse. Granted there have been some bad choices on my part, there have also been some really good choices on my part, and if things continue to evolve as they have this past year, I think by this time next year, I work strictly from the home 99% over the internet and telephone, making friends all the time, and helping them to achieve their financial dreams. I got into a great opportunity with Network Marketing, and with how that works, inside of 5 years, I can probably sit back and be debt free, and enjoy a 5000$ plus monthly recurring income. Cheers.

May be this is not for me. I am very much keen to comment on it. Yet I am not employed. So for me there is no question of retirement. But I have already some future plans. I think the most innovative plan is to invest in the insurance policies...... Believe me it is great.......

Please share more about the insurance policies, I happen to believe that network marketing is the best way to go.
