The Baby Boomer’s Business Start-Up Toolkit
Many Baby Boomers now start their own home-based business to keep active and make money rather than pursue their parents’ version of retirement. Other Baby Boomers start their own business because they can’t afford to retire, are afraid they will outlive their retirement funds or perhaps are unemployed, underemployed or just plain tired of the corporate rat race. Whatever your motivation, this interactive, practical workshop will walk you through the specific steps to take your business idea from concept to reality as you learn what you need to know and do to be succesful.
