Baby Boomers Start Home Businesses

by Mary Emma Allen on February 21st, 2007

According the the AARP Bulletin, 7.4 million baby boomers are self-employed. This translates into almost half of the self-employed people in this country.

“Older Americans are the new entrepreneurs,” states writer Carole Fleck.

Research seems to indicate, according to this article, that during the next 10 years, more people 50 and older, particularly those 65 and older, will become involved in a business of their own.

Some of the information found in “Start-Ups for Grownups” includes interviews of older business owners, check list for starting your business, and a list of resources. This could help you as you research a home business of your own.
