Once you retire, you have ample time on hand. Put it to good use by volunteering for a cause close to your heart.

You can also join NGOs like Volunteer Vacations, Working With Children, Habitat for Humanity, Docent or Tour Guide, Hunger Relief, or Helping Troops, Military Families, and Veterans. Pick a cause that you believe in so that the volunteering work will not seem like a chore.

People who work nine-to-five jobs do not have the financial freedom and luxury of time to invest in a business of their own. However, after retirement, you have all the time on hand and a whole world of experience. Put this to good use by bringing to the forefront the entrepreneur in you.

You could start with something tiny but you are passionate about and see how it works out in the world of business. And if the business takes off, you will see more money coming into your bank account. We believe extra retirement funds never hurt anyone. What do you think?
