Ever thought about starting a side business in the comfort of your own home? The idea itself sounds like a fantasy, but you are not alone. Search for home based business on Google, and you will find endless suggestions of entries regarding that topic. Why is that?
The economy is such that one has to go to work for a portion of their life. People have to work regardless, but there are always individuals looking for better ways to “make it” in this world. Why do you think there are so many network marketing companies out there? They offer an opportunity of freedom for the average person. Not everyone has the capital to start up their own multi-million dollar company and build it from the ground up. It takes guts and a powerful mindset.
Believe it or not, baby boomers are an extremely large entrepreneurial group. The millennials have some competition! Baby boomers don’t want to just lounge around the house, do some knitting or use their new driver and hit the golf course. They want to be a productive member or society and do just as much, if not more than their younger counterparts.
Research released by the Kaufmann foundation suggests that baby boomers are more than likely to start a business in 2016 than the millennials. Don’t be shocked. Even if boomers don’t have as much energy as the 20 somethings (or so we think) they have extreme drive and have a better grasp of life knowledge. They know what it takes to put in hard work and know how to balance work and life better than their younger counterparts.
