You Can Start A Business

Start a Business

If you are enjoying retirement but your mind is still wishing you could build another dream. Do it! Embrace your inner entrepreneur!

“various surveys estimate that as much as 50 percent of all work will be done on a freelance basis within the next 20 to 30 years. This is becoming known as the “gig economy,” it effects all generations and requires an entrepreneurial spirit to navigate.” Says John Tarnoff in his book, Boomer Reinvention.

Perhaps you are itching for some more connection and meaning in your daytime. Perhaps you miss the connection to others you felt at work. Many are happy with sitting, reading, playing cards, or walking in nature, but perhaps you need something else. There’s nothing wrong with that. You can figure out what you like to do and offer it to others as a form of paid service or consulting business.

Have you experienced discrimination in the workplace due to your age? You are over-qualified, or maybe companies are downsizing. It may have been the time to stop working or some physical ailment has made daily driving to the office no longer feasible. Instead of losing your professional confidence and sense of purpose, build yourself back up in your own business instead.

Let’s Play Work, not Cards Today

Maybe you want more than discussing the card came or the latest sports win. Perhaps you love to help people. Some can help others by serving them, physically helping them. Some can help others by talking to them. There are no physical requirements for just talking. You can get a smartphone and do that without abilities to walk or jog.

You do not have to be young to be successful. It is not just the young who have ideas. You have the fruit of decades of experience. Whether you ran a company or ran a household, you know a lot and there may be people you can help with that knowledge.

You can still play cards. Maybe you want to work two hours a day and only a few days a week. Why not? No one is counting. You can advertise your offer of coaching or consulting online, put up a simple webpage and serve your clients.

How do you do this? You can purchase career coaching yourself, at first, and help yourself get set up. Then you offer it to others. Why not boost your income?

What Help Do You Need?

Maybe you like to work but not to do dishes or cook. Maybe you’d rather help someone on the phone instead of making the bed or crafting a dinner recipe. Why not? You can buy these services. Homecare Assistance can provide all of these household services and even companion care. That would leave you free to build this new work life you might be craving.

Just because you need help in one part of your life does not mean that your mental skills are wavering. Get the help you need to handle the other details of life, then hang out your shingle (the old sign of being open for business) and enjoy some work. Many of us just do the work we enjoy, not because we have to but simply because we want to.

Purchase support for everything else: personal care, home care, business finances, anything.

Do You Still Know Enough to Work for Yourself?

“Older entrepreneurs are surprised to realize how much they know about starting and running a business. It feels second-nature, even if they’ve never done it before. All their hard-won wisdom and experience is now put to good use. They are capitalizing on lessons learned from all their years in the workforce” added Tarnoff.

If your brain is active, don’t put it to sleep. Get busy. Help Others. Serve Others. And you can charge for these services. You may be surprised. Not as much as you were paid for running a company, but still plenty compared to nothing. The wisdom of your years of experience may be the perfect solution you can use to help someone a decade younger who is just getting started themselves.
