Senior Citizens Can Have a Home Based Business by Irene Mori

Filed under: Articles 

In this day and age when more senior citizens are finding it difficult to manage with the retirement funds at their disposal, many are seeking outside employment after leaving the regular workforce. They may find themselves greeting customers at a Walmart store, helping people find products at Home Depot, or sweeping floors at a McDonald’s or another fast food restaurant. While it may seem sad to think of older people doing these seemingly menial jobs, some people enjoy the work as they earn a little money to help pay expenses. They feel some sense of fulfillment as they interact with other people in what might otherwise be a dreary life alone in some cases. Some seniors just like being able to get out of the house as they do something meaningful.

There are many seniors who may need extra money but who are reluctant to go to a retail or eating establishment to seek employment. These are the people who just might do well with a home based business of some kind. There are many types of work which people can do in the comfort of their own home without having to dress up, drive somewhere, and see people.

It is important that a person research the opportunity and try to make very sure that it is not a scam. Often it is difficult to tell the good from the bad, but it helps if someone can personally verify that the opportunity is real and that it is possible to earn money with it. There are too many scams which are taking away the hard earned money of senior citizens who may ill afford to lose it. Dishonest people with no scruples are preying on vulnerable older people.

Network marketing (also known as MLM or multi-level marketing) is an area in which some senior citizens, as well as all ages, are finding success. This is a business model which has been in existence for decades from the early days of giants like Amway. It is where people are supposed to help people and where they get paid on the efforts of others. It is a known fact that leveraging one’s efforts with the possibility of earning more is a more effective way of making money than simply being paid for only the efforts of yourself. This is the concept of network marketing.

There are perhaps hundreds of different MLM companies in existence. Some come into being and fall by the wayside quite quickly. Others have endured and become extremely successful. They sell all types of products with lotions and potions being very popular along with liquid nutritional supplements which are also plentiful in this area of business.

It is extremely easy to enter a network marketing company. It does not cost much to become involved. Regular purchases are required. Earning money at it is difficult, but it can be done. Finding success in anything does require hard work and dedication. Indeed, there are many senior citizens who are finding success in network marketing.

Veterans Village Las Vegas Receives $97,000 in Mattresses

The Home Depot continues to support Veterans Village Las Vegas

 

The Home Depot Foundation (THDF) recently donated a truckload of mattresses valued at more than $97,000 to Veterans Village Las Vegas.  The Home Depot Foundation, which has been actively engaged in supporting VeteransVillage since its inception last year, continues to increase its support to help complete a comprehensive renovation of VeteransVillage’s physical facility, a former Econo Lodge Motel with 120 rooms.   Just last month, The Home Depot Foundation awarded VeteransVillage with a $600,000 grant – the largest grant to a single project and the largest grant in THDF’s western division.

“The miracle on the strip continues,” said Arnold Stalk, founder, Veterans Village Las Vegas.  “The Home Depot Foundation’s ongoing support allows us to give veterans a safe and comfortable place to stay. We are grateful and appreciative for all they have done and marvel at their ongoing support via unexpected donations like a truckload of mattresses.  The good folks at The Home Depot Foundation are true angels.”

 

In addition to providing temporary housing for vets and their families, Veterans Village provides a comprehensive roster of services to vets through partnerships with other community organizations and government agencies, including employment training and referrals, continuing education and degree programs, exercise training, medical services, mental health counseling and special veteran-centric activities and events.

 

The mattresses were donated through THDF’s partner, Good360 – a nonprofit that helps companies efficiently donate slow-moving, obsolete and seasonal inventory to charitable organizations. In 2012, the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy recognized Good360 and THDF with an Excellence Award for its exemplary partnership.

Jewish War Veterans Come Together to Help Veterans Village Las Vegas

February 16, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Press-Media Releases 

Veterans Village Las Vegas, is a comprehensive housing and resource facility for U.S. veterans and their families and located in a repurposed Econo Lodge motel on Las Vegas Boulevard, has a new support group – more than 60 members of the Jewish War Veterans Murray L. Rosen Post 64. According to Senior Vice Commander Steve Seiden, the group recently signed a Memo of Understanding with Veterans Village to establish a formal working relationship. The group’s Edward Kline Memorial Homeless Veterans Fund, Inc. will underwrite housing at Veterans Village, as its funds allow, for vets and their families who need temporary housing and other critical services.

“Our group, which is comprised primarily of war veterans who served in all conflicts since WWII, developed an Independence Day Program several years ago to help find housing for homeless vets and their families,” Seiden said. “But given limited resources in the community, particularly for disabled veterans with families, we could only do so much. As we formulated a plan to enlarge our scope and our efforts, we became aware of Veterans Village. Ever since our first visit to Veterans Village, we have been meeting regularly with its founder, Arnold Stalk, and directing much of our efforts and donations to supporting this remarkable public/private partnership that does so much to help those who have defended our freedoms.”

Seiden, who also serves as president of the Edward Kline Memorial Homeless Veterans Fund, Inc., formerly referred to as the Independence Day Program, says most of its members are between 65 and 80 years of age with a few in their 90s, but the group also has younger members who served in the Korean and Vietnam wars. “We are actively recruiting younger members who share our passion for helping veterans and to continue our good work for years to come,” Seiden said.

Veterans Village opened in 2012 in a renovated Econo Lodge Motel with 120 rooms. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of the Home Depot Foundation and hundreds of hours provided by Home Depot employees, the facility is undergoing a comprehensive retrofit and update. In addition to providing temporary housing for vets and their families, Veterans Village provides a comprehensive roster of services through partnerships with other community organizations and government agencies, including employment training and referrals, continuing education and degree programs, exercise training, medical services, mental health counseling and special veteran-centric activities and events.

According to Arnold Stalk, Veterans Village founder and visionary, the contributions of the Jewish War Veterans are especially meaningful. “The group’s deep understanding of the challenges often faced by war veterans fuels their passion and enthusiasm for doing all they can to help,” Stalk said. “When members of the Jewish War Veterans visit us, they always put a smile on the faces of our residents. We are grateful for their support and appreciate their contagious enthusiasm for helping veterans.”

“There are all sorts of resources there,” said Seiden of the an all-encompassing facility that provides basic necessities like food and medical services, but also specialized services for those with substance abuse and other conditions. “For vets, Veterans Village is much more than just a roof over their head,” Seiden said. “It’s a place to heal and get critical help for success in the future. We’re excited about our relationship with Veterans Village. “
