Boomers Have A New Retirement Plan

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

In years past, when people talked about retirement, the picture was of long days sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch, watching the happenings of the day go by. Not any more!

According to the Kauffman Foundation, new research shows "20.9 percent of new ventures in 2011 were launched by persons in the 55 to 64 age group-quite a jump from back in 1996 when just 14.3 percent of new companies were launched by the same demographic."

Two things contribute to this change. One is that people are feeling younger longer - contributed in a large part with more health-consciousness and a desire to "live life to the fullest." I certainly can't picture myself rocking my life away even when I'm in my 80s! Boomers who are full of energy and not wanting to "just sit around" are creating a whole new life for themselves after retiring from a corporate career.

The other reason for this upsurge in the 55 to 64 age group is obviously related to the horrible world economy. This generation wants to enjoy life, so finding a way to earn money by doing what they love provides the funds they need to do what they want. Owning your own business can do that for you.

Age brings experience, knowledge, patience and passion. And that lends well to starting your own business. By now you know what you want to do - where your heart is. When deciding on your next career, determine three key categories this new venture must meet. When we started our home inventory service, our number one item was to do something that helped people. That's a broad topic, but it did keep us focused as we researched business opportunities and franchises. By providing home and business inventories, we know how valuable this document is, because we had two burglaries - both of which we didn't recover fully because we couldn't remember everything that was stolen!

Once you make a decision, enjoy what you're doing, grow the business, but don't stop there! Keep dreaming and growing. After years of learning the home inventory industry, honing our skills and improving our process, we created a turnkey business package to help others start their own inventory business. This opportunity for others to start a business gives access to our nearly a decade of experience and knowledge, our processes and procedures, mentoring and continued support. This is another way we now help others!

Age isn't a hindrance - it's an advantage. Take your skills learned from years in the corporate world, find what you want to do and create your new life! It will be a lot of work, but it's also exciting! Our generation has the will and determination to be successful. In spite of the economy, despite our age, those who have the desire to reach their dreams will. And they'll continue to live a happy, exciting and fulfilled life.
