There are over 78 million Baby Boomers, and a lot of them are getting ready to start new careers as they enter a new stage in their lives and prepare to reenter the work force.
Many people in their forties, fifties and sixties plus who consider themselves part of the new middle aged group are searching for new careers where they can take advantage of their vast experience and prior successes.
Some have decided to start a second career because they need more money to fund the type of lifestyle they want to continue to enjoy.
Some have decided to start a new career because they feel good and just don’t want to retire.
Some like the sense of accomplishment that comes from working and being creative.
Whatever the reason, there is a large group of people who want to find something to do that can bring them income and or personal satisfaction, and the ability to work at home for as many hours as they wish.
One has to be careful because there are many scam artists out there looking to take advantage of this situation and hawking a variety of get rich quick schemes.
One rule of thumb to follow is if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. If it promises instant riches with little or no work it is probably a phony.
There are, however, legitimate opportunities out there in the market place, that depending on your talents, interests, and background, might be worth pursing if you are interested in starting over.
The question is what can you expect when starting a new venture – probably the same type of thing you have been used to in the past in a new Internet based format.
You still have to answer the questions who wants to buy what I will be offering, and are there enough of them to make my venture profitable?
You will have to decide for yourself if the project you are considering offers you a really substantial money making opportunity, or if you are just going to be wasting your time and spinning your wheels.
Whatever you decide to do, please remember the words that God in His infinite wisdom may be whispering in your ear.
“You can do anything you set your mind to. All you need is faith in yourself and in Me.”
