Your Second Act – Lifestyle Freedom, Financial Prosperity and Impact
For the past 15 years, Boomers (born between 1946-1964) have had a higher rate of entrepreneurial activity than any other demographic. Since 60 is the new 30, they have a lifetime of experience they want to share and they are not afraid of hard work. Many have worked “traditional” jobs and either have been let go or have left on their own accord. So now they are ready for their second act.
Now Boomers are looking for lifestyle freedom and work schedule freedom, as time is seen as the most valuable resource at this point in their lives. For many, there is also a need for more financial prosperity as the pensions are not quite enough to live on. They also want to make an impact.
Whether you are a boomer or not, you may need another paid part-time job at the same time as you start up what you are passionate about. You’re living the dream but you’re paying the bills too.
With the internet now, you can run your business from your laptops from anywhere in the world. You just need a WordPress website, a Facebook presence – and it’s free. You can also have a presence on Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, or Tumblr.
There are so many advantages to being self-employed as an entrepreneur. One of the main ones is the tax advantages. You can write off a variety of expenses and lower your taxable income allowing you to actually keep more of what you earn. You have the option of working out of your home office which means no more rush hours and additional gas expenses.
Here are some of the benefits:
