Starting a Business After 50!
Many of us look forward to the day we no longer have to do anything. Our retirement is a jobless dream of no longer doing the same thing we have done for last 40+ years, so sleeping in, playing golf and laying in the sun for the next 20 to 30 years, sounds idyllic, well for some!
For the many, the thought of living without activity and stimulation would send us completely bonkers. Sure holidays and overseas travel are great but we actually still love a good challenge. Retirement and the years leading up to it, can be a great opportunity to chase our dreams and passions to fulfill the need to have meaning and purpose in our life.
If this is ringing true for you, well then....."Have you considered starting your own business?"
Business ventures for the over 50's age group are on the increase, this is due to the opportunities now available on the internet, we are on the cusp of a new frontier, and has made online business readily available to anyone. It's especially appealing to this age group because job security is a thing of the past and this is such a critical stage of life for earning and preparation for retirement.
The great thing about online business is its flexibility, it only requires 2 to 3 hours a day, it can be run from wherever you happen to be globally and with six figure earning potential. Yes, that is not a typo, there is big money to be made if you are willing to go for it. Just think, you will never have to worry about being retrenched or taking a pay cut again, you have control and you call the shots. It could actually allow you to retire early or make your money last longer if you are already retired!
Start up costs are also low compared to traditional and franchise options and in many instances you will be provided with a full running system that does all the grunt work for you very similar to a franchise without the high costs and stress .
Starting an online home based business is probably right for you if you have always longed to:
- Be your own boss
- Do what you love around your own lifestyle
- Earn an executive level income working part time
- Learn new skills
- Help others
- Build your own successful business from the ground up
In the years following the crash in 2008, millions globally lost their entire retirement savings, including homes and businesses. Like myself they too have come to terms with the fact that working well into their 70's is a reality. So whether it is a choice or a necessity online business is definitely something you should consider and take a look at!
