A number of national business magazines have recently featured articles on how 50 and over corporate managers are finding their age to be a major deterrent to finding and holding a job.

Williams highlights a number of entrepreneurial advantages people 50 and beyond enjoy:

  • They’ve learned to be patient to let good things develop.
  • They like to carefully research and conceptualize new ideas.
  • They know where to find money and are disciplined in managing it.

  • They’re clear on what they do and don’t like.
  • They know how to budget their time.
  • They have a keen sense of good, and bad, customer service.
  • They know what they are good at doing and have confidence when they’re doing it.
