Although it is the young who take lead in pursuing entrepreneurship but that is no longer the case. You can find people of any age trying their hand on it since the uncertainties of the job market and shaky government finances have made the people realize that it is no longer feasible to have only your job and some savings to live your lives comfortably in your retirement years. And so since due to medical advances and somewhat healthy lifestyle have stretched the numbers of years an average person in the developed world is now living. It has become clear that many of our retirees will outlive their savings and retirement benefits. So now increasing number of people are trying their hands in entrepreneurship in their 40s, 50s and even 60s and finding it satisfying.
Although, any kind of entrepreneurship is stressful since the more you work, the more you earn and also you have to treat every lead as a potential money making opportunity. Also you have to deal with the taxes and have to deal with everything yourself (initially at least) but you also learn a lot and create a network of people and new friends. As I have been saying in my posts every now and then, everybody should try their hands once in business and see if it is up to their liking. You don’t need to put enormous amount of money into your business venture. You can start with a thousand or so or maybe even less starting as simple as selling stuff on the internet or in flea markets and go from there if you enjoy it.
