I decided to basically keep the headline that WordPress provides for the first post on new blog sites–because I really think it captures my excitement and anticipation for Boomers Who Mean Business.
There’s so much I want to accomplish with this site. I want to fill it with resources that fellow baby boomers can use to create, launch and grow their own wildly successful post retirement businesses. I want to include interviews of boomers who are starting out or are already making it with businesses of their own. And I want to offer my own training and coaching programs that will help boomers live successful and fulfilling post retirement lives.
I really think that the mix between our skills, talent, experience and expertise, combined with today’s global access to potential clients and customers, makes this a particularly awesome time for those of us over age 50 to thrive in ways that previous generations have not been able to. And thrive we must, as chances are we’ll live longer, may be simultaneously caring for aging parents as well as live at home children or grandchildren, and find that those pensions ( if indeed ours survived the pillaging of corporate robber barons) and 401ks provide threadbare safety nets in the wake of all the financial demands made on us.
Yes, despite our challenges, I am optimistic for our generation, and invite you to join me on this grand adventure known as the second half of our lives. I look forward to developing this site and hopefully getting to know you.
