All of a sudden investing for income has become popular again. And there is a reason for that.

More than $6.5 billion has evaporated from retirement accounts since 2007, coinciding with a growing trend of workers postponing their retirements or returning to the workforce at least part-time.

The US economy is still lagging and the next European crisis is never far away, and that isn’t good news for investors who are dependent on the stock market to build retirement nest eggs or generate income for living expenses.

A retiree with $100,000 in a money market account might earn about $50 a month. Even at 10 times that amount, you’re pretty much limited to paying the electric bill and buying groceries without dipping into your nest egg or relying on a job that might not be there for as long as you need it.

To face life in an environment where traditional income investments like CDs, money markets, and bonds producing only .01% to 1% is depressing.  Nobody wants to cut short their dreams just because yields are ridiculously low.

But if you’d instead like to bring in $500 a week (or however much you want/need) – using the money that’s otherwise stagnating in your account—then I have the solution for you.

That’s why I’ve written this personal “blue print” article so you can easily create an income machine for yourself and generate an extra paycheck every week.

Let’s get started.

    Selling VIX puts has been losing me money big time. It works sometimes but it's not a sure thing. If you keep rolling, you just tie up your capital for months at a time with no return. I agree that you can preserve capital by doing this but you certainly can't make a living consistently.

    Selling covered calls I can see – give folks some explanation on the the interaction between the VIX and the option income and arm them for a reasonable return and what to expect in terms of risk. But trade VIX naked VXX puts and SKF leveraged ETF options for the uninitiated? Really? Are you trying to generate income or lose folks what capital they have left?

    On a stock like AT & T to collect $50 to $75 you will have to sell the stock deep into the money and for sure taken away at expiration. You're selling pipe dreams.

      You need to look at the return for AT&T. Based on the close price today, the 29 call will give you .29 profit if called out about 1% a month not counting commission. You use a discount broker like IB and you get 10% a year not counting the dividend. It doesn't matter if the stock is called, you just buy it back again next month and sell the calls again.
