The Boomerpreneur's Dilemma: 
Should I Start My Own Business?

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.

At the same time, being that most small businesses end in failure, Boomerpreneurs must adopt a serious mindset, do some research and educate themselves before risking their retirement nest egg in a venture where most have no previous experience - business ownership.

Unlike most of his contemporaries, Frank has been an entrepreneur nearly his entire career. The author of multiple bestselling books on marketing and small business ownership, he has now turned his focus to entrepreneurial education, and has over 17,000 students from 163 countries enrolled in his online courses in addition to thousands who have attended his live seminars across the country and in Europe and South America.

In recent years, as he heard more and more of his school chums expressing interest in starting a business in retirement, Frank realized that most of them had no idea what they were getting into. His friends needed help - help that he was uniquely qualified to provide.
In his presentation, The Boomerpreneur’s Dilemma , Frank shares with audiences:

● Why retirement age is both the best and worst time to start a business
● How to decide if becoming a Boomerpreneur makes sense for you
● What factors will determine whether you are destined for success or failure
● How to find an opportunity that matches your budget, timeframe and personality
