Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 13, 2011
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of December 2010 there were still more than 1.5 million unemployed 50+ boomers in the U.S. And a recent Forbes article pointed out that many of the few replacement jobs available for people in this age range are either part-time or temporary, neither a reliable way for rebuilding retirement portfolios that have taken decimating financial hits. In response to the dire job outlook, Chicago-based boomer business start-up expert Jeff Williams has launched a personal campaign to invite all unemployed Americans over 50 to take their first step at finding entrepreneurial ways to replace ther income.
Williams drew upon his experience coaching more than 4,000 boomer clients when creating his free "Boomer Biz Starter Kit" which includes an idea generator guide designed to show how to use everyday work and life experience to find good business ideas, and then how to use a simple 5-step process to evaluate the financial prospects of any business idea. The free Kit is available at http://www.bizstarters.com.
In addition to the idea generator guide, the Boomer Biz Starter Kit also includes:
- A twenty-minute podcast interview entitled: " Keys to Success in Your Boomer Business," during which Williams reveals the most important keys to planning and running a successful business after age 50, including advice on how to build the business around “multiple streams of income” and the main hurdle that must be overcome to run a successful boomer business.The recording is immediately accessible at http://www.bizstarters.com via an easy-to-use audio player.
- A free subscription to Williams' popular weekly digital newsletter: "The Boomer Biz Zone."
“It’s time for a reality check for many unemployed people over 50,” Williams emphasizes. “Their odds of returning to a full-time corporate job fade by the week but most are way too young and underfunded to try to completely retire at this age. They need to seek the entrepreneurial way to turn their skill into a new source of income.”
Williams is the 62-year old CEO of Bizstarters.com, chosen by the editors of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine as “The Best Entrepreneurial Guide for People Over 50”. He is also founder and Chief Coach for the Virtual Incubator Coaching Network, which matches experienced 50+ business start-up coaches to 50+ clients. He is the author of eight books on business start-up, including his latest the “Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide” and is the chief coach for the award-winning Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up School, a group business launch program.
