Let’s explore what The Wealthy Boomers is all about.

mike gaudreauI am Mike Gaudreau, creator of The Wealthy Boomers, a site devoted to seniors making money online.

If you are a senior and want to start an online business of your own and earn some income to enhance your retirement but don’t know where to start, this page is for you.

I want to help you learn by telling you the truth, working hard, and leading by example. That’s what I am all about and that’s what this site is about.

I want you to avoid things like being distracted by the latest shiny object out there and wasting time and money jumping around from program to program like I was.

I want you to learn the value of helping others succeed and the importance of building that audience that you can reach out to. I want you to become trusted, knowledgeable and respected so that your audience will buy into your recommendations; something that I learned the hard way was where I should have begun.

What we do here.

I will show you the approaches, tools, and techniques to build yourself an online presence, attract an audience, provide helpful content, and finally how to make some money. None of this comes quickly and will take real work to accomplish.

What we are not.

If you are looking for a get rich quick overnight approach, then you are not in the right place.

This site is for those willing to learn what really works and by working hard to achieve success.

Your First Business Requirement is a Website with a Blog

There are a few free choices like Blogger and These are all right, but I don’t recommend them for business because:

  1. You do not have full control of your domain name.
  2. You have limited control over design and functionality.
  3. You have no control over platform changes.

For these 3 reasons alone is why I recommend using a self-hosted WordPress website. You will have control, it will look professional, and you can call it your own.

The Website Hosting Company I Use and Trust

I have been using HostPapa for some time. They are a solid Canadian hosting company.  In my opinion, they stand out because of:


    • Outstanding performance
    • Solid security
    • Superb customer support
    • Ease of setup
    • Affordability
    • Eco-friendliness.

I highly recommend using the Startup package for your first website for only $3.95/month.
