Ageless Startup A great review of Ageless Startup by Skip Prichard. Older workers are facing many hard choices as traditional employment options fade, and health concerns rise. And yet, our knowledge and networks combine to make this a Renaissance age of entrepreneurship. Rick Terrien is a lifelong entrepreneur and author of the book Ageless Startup: Start a Business at Any Age . For people in the second half of life, there has never been a better time to start your own business. The world needs you. Your community needs you. You have the time to make a difference, and you have the experience, resilience, and networks to make the world a better place.

The launch of the book Ageless Startup continues despite - and because of - the pandemic. What a crazy year to launch a new book... maybe. With millions of people losing their jobs, and millions more jobs threatened, perhaps it's time we all look for options. Those of us in the second half of life are especially vulnerable to employment issues, from the ever-present ageism to current downsizing decisions that focus on our age not our value in the market. A group of us are launching the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs (CAE) to create a home for people in the second half of life to explore entrepreneurship and to find peers to grow with. I will continue to write personal thoughts about Ageless Startups here but for those of you looking to explore and launch the next steps, I welcome you to the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs.

I had a great conversation with Bill Black, on Exit Coach Radio recently. Here is a quote, summary and podcast link: Rick - "There is a happy medium of small, one-person businesses that can contract their services, their knowledge and their networks. You can approach this carefully and slowly, and at your own pace to set them up to match your own values."
