Students will be able to look at exising products and services, improve them and create a better idea for their own home business.


  • Using your life experience, your hobbies, your street smarts, education and your work ethic.


I decided to re-publish this course. The sermon from my pastor in church today changed my mind. I originally cancelled this course because it was free and the information I gave out was worth a lot of money to some students. I re-published because I do this to help people. Love of money IS NOT why I do this. Welcome to the workshop!

NEW - Secret of winning the sales competition on the Internet by adding this to all your products advertised on Amazon and E-Bay! This unusual method is only available on the paid version of this tutorial!

Retired seniors, veterans and anyone with a desire to work from home can learn how to use their job experience, hobbies, education and even their street smarts to create profitable home business ideas. Sign up now for “Work from Home Business Ideas for Retired Seniors” 

There are 11 tutorials in this tutorial. Included are also free answers to email questions about your home business ideas.  This course should take no more than a couple of hours of your time. The course uses powerpoint video and audio presentation. Downloads are in PDF format.   

A recent  AARP study said that 17% of seniors who retire will start a business. IMAGINE running your own business.  Instead of golfing, traveling or just watching TV all day, these ideas and examples will help you create a business that will keep you mentally and financially activated. Make money for yourself, not someone else!

There is no Certificate of Completion with this course, but there is one with the paid course called "Power of Positive Tinkering" Signing up for the Tinkering course helps Veterans.

I hope you will also consider my paid course called the Power Of Positive Tinkering on UDEMY and my new course called The Top Ten Home Businesses for 2021. Most of these ideas are not easy and will require study to start them. Not eveyone will want to work hard! DO YOU?

VETERANS GET SPECIAL PREFERENCE. I will answer all questions by email. If necessary I will help you in person by phone. The only catch is that you will have to call me. I will give you my number if I feel I can help!

Who this course is for:

  • This course is for everyone, including retired seniors or veterans who would like to create a profitable home business.
