If you think you are too old to be starting a business online, think again.
We are living in a GOLDEN age where age is no longer relevant. People are living longer, and instead of putting their feet up and retiring at 65 to a restful existence, fuelled by inadequate pension payments, the NEW smart senior entrepreneur has emerged..
In the early days of the Internet, it was indeed mainly a younger person’s playground, it was thought that the typical online entrepreneur was going to be a 16-20 something, however all that has changed, and here’s why.
Using the Internet to build a business has been made a lot easier as advancing technology has levelled the playing field so that people no longer have to be be tech savvy to make money.
Almost anyone can learn the skills to now make money online. People of all ages can now see the potential of the Internet to improve their lives. We now have a huge amount of senior citizens making money online.
You no longer have to learn coding skills, it really is mainly “paint be numbers” simple. YES, there is a learning curve, but the over 55’s are now a huge force to be reckoned with online, as the ‘Roger Bannister” effect kicks in and just like the 4 minute mile, once seen as being “off limits”, the over 55’s are now CRUSHING it online.
Reliable, dependable people of all ages are now adding to the amazing mix of regular internet users.
If you think about it, an online business is an ideal business for someone who may be retired, or nearing retirement as it means you can build an online income from home. You might have the time now to spend on building a lasting business that can provide you with an income for years and years to come.
Social media sites have reported that there is now a much larger group of over 55’s using their platform, especially Facebook. Facebook recently reported the over 55 group as the fastest growing group of users.
Just because a person has advancing years doesn’t mean they are senile or passed it. Many seniors have a lot more brain power than people half their age.
It’s not about how old you are anymore, it’s about the people skills and other online skills and wisdom you have acquired along the way. Often or not, people over 55 have great determination and resilience, these are great traits to possess, especially for online marketing.
Big pay checks online are not awarded for how young you are, it’s what you do that counts. If you can master some basic skills (you can) you can make an income online. I’ve been doing it for years and I’m not a spring chicken…
Have a great day
