It is not too late to become a boomer entrepreneur. See examples that represent the best in boomer entrepreneurship. Time to go for it.
If you are age 55+ and have always had a yearning to do something different, or want to test yourself and enjoy the process, then you just might be one of the success stories. One of the best ways to test to see if entrepreneurs are born or made is to use the internet.
The internet presents great opportunities that some of us did not have earlier in life. You can find ways to share your joys and passions and even earn income from it. You can find a feeling of satisfaction in sharing knowledge with others. If you want to go in this direction, you can even build an e-business for your families future.
The fun part is that you can make of it what you want and you do not have have to know programming to do it.
I would like to provide you with a few examples of baby boomers that have made it to my entrepreneur list and have found their niche and great satisfaction along the way. See how each has knowledge and skills that they share with others.
Shaun Fawcett is a writer, business consultant, journalist and publisher who developed the website WritingHelp-Central.com.
As Shaun describes it, "For twenty-five years, the spirit of a small time entrepreneur was trapped inside the mind of a government administrator."
Not only has Shaun developed his website to feed his entrepreneurial drive, but he has written, published and sold 12 books/ebooks, both online and off. You can learn more about Shaun here.
Shaun has become such a successful boomer entrepreneur that WritingHelp-Central.com is in the top 1% of all websites on the internet, as shown on the self-help section of this list.
Richard Cannon has a great story of how he moved from being a 36 year engineering municipal government worker to a ranch owner to a mountain dweller in New Mexico. His road led him from total lack of satisfaction at work to independence. He used the concept he found from SBI and built a team to do the work to make him a success.
His credo is "You're In Charge". That holds true for your success with an e-commerce site or in life.
