New Entrepreneurs Among the Later Living

Later life is more and more a time of entrepreneurship, says the Atlantic. One reason is the good health enjoyed by many people who have been spared a hard life of physical labor. Other reasons, not mentioned in the Atlantic, may include a growing number of unemployed among people 50 years old and above, and a growing interest in providing help to younger family members who themselves may be unemployed. Times are tough. The examples in the Atlantic are persons who have had careers, who may be already retired, and who have the interest and energy to start something new. Later life is a good time to start a business.
