Business owners can transition into ageless entrepreneurs



Interesting article in the Washington Post about the boomers having trouble decoupling from businesses they started.

The Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs (CAE) is set up to help entrepreneurs in the second half of life explore and grow. Our thinking here would be that if you started at least one business – do it again. Launch a new small enterprise focused on markets and communities and ideas you love. Pay it forward.

Good quote from the article:

“Baby boomers, a group now between the ages of 57 and 76, make up a large percentage of entrepreneurs. While there are no precise numbers, 30 percent of business owners are between the ages of 55 and 64 and another 20 percent are over 65, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's Annual Business Survey - that’s more than 2 million businesses in total.”

When you include the full 40+ cohort, this number gets much bigger. Ageless entrepreneurship a viable option in a world full of transitions.
