WELCOME TO THE FIRST OF MY MONTHLY BLOGS COVERING ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND ALL THE RELEVANT ISSUES APPLICABLE THERETO.
EACH WEEK WE WILL DISCUSS A DIFFERENT HURDLE, COVER EACH BASE AND MOVE FORWARD!
Blog 1. The “AGE OF WISDOM (over 50)”
I have been in the business consulting practice, either as an entrepreneur, executive in traditional banking firms and/or in my own consulting practice for over 40 years and without doubt one of the most pressing issues of our time is how long we now live, how actually healthy and vibrant we are at ages 50-60-70 and beyond and not to be under-estimated, the strength of our mental capacity and battlefield life experiences
It is basically a suicide mission to engage in job hunting at the above ages, especially when the corporate gate-keepers are just old enough to be your son or grandson and they in-turn think of you as either their Father or Grandfather; in either case it is a no-win situation.
So maybe it is time to start thinking about starting and launching your business; after-all you have at least 30 years of experience and plenty of contacts for networking and self-promoting your new business.
Get on the bandwagon, now! Talk to your spouse and begin the journey but first arm yourself with a PLAYBOOK strategy by actually purchasing my PLAYBOOK on the subject (Entrepreneurial Decision Making).
There you will learn whether you are even ready for such an undertaking and qualified for the job, just like in the corporate world, think this is silly, think again as you are about to use all your savings, pledge all your personal possessions including your home and owe your relatives, friends and credit cards a bundle, so please do not dismiss the decision making as a passive thought.
Once you hurdle the first obstacle and the initial stages of contemplation and reached your decision to become an entrepreneur, you will be faced with implementation ranging from capital to proof of concept and launch, all of which are big hurdles to clear as you will continue to resolve such other issues as capital, legal structure of the organization initial incorporators, marketing strategies.
