Have you ever thought about being a “boomerpreneur”?
I had never heard the word “boomerpreneur” until I read this great article by Stacey Stein that covers the entrepreneurs life before, what he/she did, why he/she took the leap, on success, the biggest challenge, the greatest reward and words of wisdom for boomers considering starting their own businesses; hence the name boomerpreneur. I wonder how many people who have worked for one organization for the majority of their career have a dream that’s been taking shape over the years regarding building a business of their own? Perhaps it’s linked to what they’ve been doing or something entirely different. Regardless, I think it’s a great risk management tool these days with the potential for layoffs that can happen to the most seasoned career professional. It’s something we can fall back on; something of our own we can create and be responsible for; something that holds the potential that our current job could never provide.
