Affordable Health Care Act Information and Insights For Baby Boomers Part 1

How much do you already know about the Affordable Health Care Act? Are people already asking you about information in your family because they know that you will KNOW? Aren’t we Baby Boomers always supposed to be the “go to folks”?

Well, I decided to finally start gathering information because I needed to KNOW MORE. The one thing that I am realizing is that a lot depends on your residence. Some States have their own marketplace-very interesting.

However, allow me to share an informative webinar with you that should help you start forming your own questions. The webinar was designed for Journalists who will be forming articles for the public to help our learning curve. Shhh, don’t tell any Journalists already you saw this webinar.  You know how we Baby Boomers love to learn. LOL

Pay close attention to information essential for those of us who are in the Baby Boomer age range but still working and not quite old enough for Medicare. Also, many are working but will lose benefits.

Please feel free to share your insights and resources. Also, if you have additional information or currently blogging about the topic I would love to have you as a guest blogger. But note, that I don’t desire to entertain a lot of negative rants about the subject just how we can maximize the information to meet our health care needs.

I will be sharing more later so be sure to include your email on the blog so you can get updates as I post them.

 

Baby Boomers-Need a Bridge Job or Just a Job to Add to Pension?

I just read an excellent post on bridge jobs for babyboomers. Now, th

is is inspirational because it shows it encourages baby boomers to look at jobs for the purpose of staying productive. Yet, I am stuck on the fact that so many baby boomers I know are just trying to add to their pensions.

A bridge job for many is an essential job for many baby boomers who  lost their jobs or need to pay for benefits until they reach medicare eligibility.

So, look at this post and share with others who may be thinking about staying productive or just plain need a job.

Allow Me to be Frank About ClickBank

I want to be very frank about ClickBank. I like it.

What is ClickBank?

ClickBank is a major affiliate retailer of digital products. They make it possible for you to sell e-books as well as be an affiliate for other folks e-books.

Why Do I Like it?

Well, I like it more now then I liked it in the early days I first started online. It seems to be easier to use. I also like it because you can make great affiliate commissions. Just think about it. If you are selling an ebook there are no printing costs. That means you can pass on commission rates that exceed the commissions you would get from a retailer that sells products that must be sent in the mail.

If you are a publisher you can sell your book at Clickbank and offer other folks commission for promoting your products. Sounds simple? Well, for many it is but it does not come without some amount of work and learning. So, yes there are many products and gurus out there that can help you.

Do I Have One of Those “I Made Millions on ClickBank” Stories?

NO! But some of you reading this just might and I sure would love for you to share. Right now I am just returning to ClickBank to start my relationship all over again.

I have included a video I thought was simple and easy to understand. It let’s you know how to promote someone’s product in your blog post without locating a super techi to do it. This baby boomer understood it and will start using it. So Check it out and let me know what you think.

Health Care Reform and Baby Boomers

Now I just read one of the best summaries about the Health Care Reform Bill as it relates to baby boomers.

Of course many reading this post are die hards against the bill and that is ok because as baby boomers we have much to share based on our own level of experience, education and edgy focus.

YES, I am for the health care reform bill. Now, I have said it and stand by it. For me it has nothing to do with my political views, race, religion or the fact that I am not an insurance lobbyist. For me it means hope and help for many people that need the reform.

Anyway, here is the post that shares the bill as it relates to baby boomers. Tell me what you think. Hey, isn’t that what blogging is all about?
