Creating your own business has its ups and downs in any economy and at any age. The rules listed in the article below apply in much the same way at any age. To have a passion and resources for your business is one of the most rewarding feelings one can have. To be an entrepreneur, means being married to your work. Can you do that? I found that easier as a senior than in the years I raised my children.
FYI ... Age 50 is no longer Senior. Don't start a business if you are burned out. Know if you are only capable of working part time. Consider your heath issues.
What's different for seniors are their long term goals. Who will take over the business when you want to retire or do you plan to sell? Is your business in line with today's technologies, thinking and global needs? What are your motivations?
I find this interesting ... my best friend owns a design company here in NYC that manufactures mannequins (see image in article below).
In all ... as a 70 year old working senior ... I say go for it ... if you have the resources and help. If you find too much stress, remember that stress kills and your body may be too old for the long hours and complications that arise along the way.
