Welcome to Enjoy Success At Home and my About Larry page. Here are some exciting opportunities for those interested in making money online through affiliate marketing.
My name is Larry and I have spent most of my working years in the information technology field as a support engineer helping people resolve their computer problems.
I’m also a Baby Boomer and retired with still a desire to help make peoples’ lives easier. I enjoy working with people in a team environment. I went back to school and completed a BA in Environmental Studies, an MS Degree in Environmental Management, and an MBA in International Business. Currently, I do volunteer work in environmental advocacy groups.
What do I do now that I’m retired?
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated the worldwide population of those 60 years and older will reach around 2 billion by the year 2050 (World Health Organization, 2017).
As the population ages, more retirees find themselves in dire financial straits and need to work to make ends meet. Many have difficulty finding a job in their golden years.
I enjoy helping people and seeing their success. It is my commitment to help those who are interested in pursuing an online affiliate marketing business.
I think affiliate marketing is a wonderful opportunity to learn a niche for which you are passionate, find new friends, supplement your income, and above all – have fun. Conducting business from home allows you to travel, pursue hobbies, spend time with family and friends or just take a nap whenever you feel like it.
Internet marketing is not just for seniors. Recent studies conducted by the Freelancers Union have revealed that as of 2020, more than 53 million people are freelancing in the US.
In 2012, the National Center for Education Statistics reported that 1.8 million students between the ages of 5 and 17 were homeschooled in the US alone (NCES, 2016). This alone is a good reason to start an online affiliate marketing business that allows you the freedom to work at home or anywhere you’d like.
Almost everyone has experienced the uncertainty of recessions and suddenly left with no source of income. That includes the days before we had daily access to the internet. Since 1996, the Internet has provided affiliate marketing opportunities for lots of people that want or need to work from home: unemployed (or under-employed), stay-at-home parents, students, retirees, and many others.
Affiliate marketing has evolved into one of the most practical and legitimate ways of earning income from home or anywhere. By setting up a niche website and blogging to sell products and services for companies and earning a commission off of the sale, you can start earning money for yourself and gradually build a kind of online business that could be a key source of income for you and your family.
I’m dedicated to helping anyone interested in starting an online affiliate business, selecting a niche market, and a website you can be proud to call yours. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced affiliate marketer, there’s always something new to learn and money to be made. So let’s get started.

It is an honor to meet and get to know you, I am looking forward to reading articles and I thank you for introducing yourself and sharing about yourself
This sounds like a great idea for those of us on the verge of retiring with a desire to make extra income. Maryellen, my mother forwarded this link to me, and I would like to know more about a good niche for
me. I am a credentialed teacher that has been a H.S. Spanish teacher. I know there must be something
useful for me to do. Thanks!
Thanks for checking out my website. There are several niches in the teaching area. Here’s an article that will help you get started. Companies like Udemy has an affiliate program that includes Spanish language classes.
