January Retired4Hire Newsletter

Dear website visitor, Happy 2015! 

Now that it’s reaching the end of January we thought we’d check in and see how your New Year’s Resolutions were doing? We want this to be your best year yet, and hopefully Retired4Hire will help you get there. We’re certainly excited about all the things we’ve got planned, and want to reach even more people this year to help them achieve their potential. So, if you’re on track with your Resolutions then congrats – keep up the great work! But if not, we wanted to share our top 5 tips to help you get back on track:



  1. Be Realistic, then Go Public  Make sure you set a goal that will challenge, but not deter, you: e.g. “have salad for lunch 3 times a week” – not “only eat salad for the rest of my life”. It might also help to tell other people about it, they’ll hold you accountable.
  2. Plan Ahead Decide your resolution before NYE (or whatever your deadline start date is) – you want it to be well thought out, not just an impulse. Then plan how you’ll avoid temptation – e.g. have a training partner who will mean you can’t bail on the gym.
  3. Reward Yourself Celebrate your success by treating yourself to something you enjoy that doesn’t contradict your resolution. For example, if you’ve been sticking to your promise to eat better, reward yourself with new fitness clothing.
  4. Track Your Progress Keep track of each small success. It takes 21 days (some say 40) for a new habit to be formed so you need little motivators to help you get that far. Maybe tick off your calendar, or start a food/spending diary – anything that’ll motivate you to do it for that extra few days.
  5. Keep Trying Don’t worry if you’ve slipped so far, or run out of steam – just keep re-committing and reminding yourself why you started. Maybe even make a list of the ‘pro’s for your change and put it on your wall. Just take each day one at a time.


At Retired4Hire we give you the opportunity to take up a new profession for extra income, or life fulfilment. Maybe pick a new hobby today that you’d like to monetise and list yourself on there, or find someone who can teach you something new and search for them! 2015 could be your year for discovering a whole new side of yourself.Go for it!
