I received my September, 2016 AARP Bulletin, and saw this article that spoke loudly to me, Getting Rich After 50, Harnessing your entrepreneurial spirit can lead to wealth.
I like the thought of that because that is what I am engaged with. Trying something I’ve never done before. Creating an online business. I am crazy in love with the fun and possibilities. And challenges.
I want to share what’s possible. Too often you have a limited perspective of what can be. And, the media most often shows models of barely getting by and losing value as you age.
My mission is to have more positive models of aging and retirement.
My business is all about helping people be their best, no matter their age.
With my Thriving in unRetirement program just out, I’m always looking for examples of what Boomers and Retirees are doing with this time of their life.
This article highlights seven (7) people who found their fortune after 50. Each person is capitalizing on something that matters to them. It shows how they did it.
One example was Carol Gardner, 70, who turned her English bull dog into a licensing empire. She turned her obstacle of a divorce, into best-seller of Hallmark cards - The Zelda Wisdom product line.
