March Networking with Purpose Event
Every day in the United States, 10,000 people reach retirement age. Many of those people are considering starting a business within one year of retiring. The question is, should they?
Frank Felker refers to these people as “Boomerpreneurs” - Baby Boomer Entrepreneurs.
In his book, he explains why retirement age is both the very best time - and the very worst time to start a business. Boomers are seasoned professionals with time on their hands and money in the bank. They are honest, hardworking and require very little supervision in order to complete a task. Their kids are grown and out of college, the house is furnished and paid for and they are much healthier and energetic than “senior citizens” of previous generations.
