FEATURED IN THE MEDIA
You don’t know what you don’t know
There isn’t a better way of spreading the importance of older entrepreneurship and employment for the 50 plus group of unemployed workers than being interviewed on the topics by well-known podcasters, radio show hosts and writers.
In these interviews, the host or writer and I share my knowledge and thoughts on what is going on in the world, how COVID-19 has affected jobs for so many people with a vast number of them being over the age of 50, and the difficulty of finding work due to their age. We talk about how many older people in the world can’t afford to be unemployed or aren’t ready to retire. For some, it is the perfect opportunity to start the business they have always thought of doing, while others will be exploring entrepreneurship as an option when they aren’t able to find work.
We talk about my book, WISER: The Definitive Guide to Starting a Business After the Age of 50 and how it will guide you in making the decision if entrepreneurship is right for you. Everyone needs to understand that being a business owner isn’t for everyone – it’s better to know what is involved, and the time and energy that goes into it on a daily basis, before taking the leap and regretting it later.
You will hear about entrepreneurs who have done well during COVID-19 which will inspire and give you hope that you can do it too. We also discuss senior entrepreneurs who have innovative ideas, but can’t find financial support for various reasons and are ready to give their business away.
And finally, you will hear about the WISE 50 over 50 Awards and the advocacy work that I do to ensure older entrepreneurs are recognized and supported as other groups are.
