CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) March 24, 2014
Bizstarters.com, an award-winning provider of business start-up programs for people over 50, announces the debut of its Boomer Biz Zone membership community, located at http://www.boomer-biz-zone.com.
The community is designed to offer business skills training and business planning programs as well as regular networking events to both prospective boomer entrepreneurs and 50+ business owners.
The free Starter Club is designed especially for prospective entrepreneurs featuring a variety of e-books, checklists, articles, videos and podcasts helping the member focus on a business idea ideally suited to him and giving him a clear understanding of the demands and rewards in running his own business. New members are invited to join Williams on April 10th for his “How to Find a Great Business Idea” teleseminar.
The Pro Membership, priced at $97.00 per month, is aimed at the individual who is well-focused on a business concept and very eager to get his business up and running. Features include access to the complete “Start Your Business NOW!” business startup program, selected by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine as ‘The Best Entrepreneurial Guide for People over 50’; monthly skill development teleseminars; and one-on-one coaching sessions.
“Boomer entrepreneurs often have different goals and needs than younger entrepreneurs,” says Jeff Williams, CEO of Bizstarters.com and creator of the Boomer Biz Zone. “For example, for many flexibility of schedule is more important than maximizing income. Most want to build what I call ‘lifestyle’ businesses, where they center their business plans around their life plans. As a 60-plus business owner myself, I understand where they are coming from and I designed this community to speak to their unique needs”.
All members benefit from a number of networking opportunities including: the ‘Running a Great Business After 50’ podcast series; exchanges in the Boomer Biz Zone private Facebook group; and monthly online networking events to introduce members to each other.
In addition to presenting virtual networking events, Boomer Biz Zone is joining with the Center for Productive Longevity, a Boulder, Colorado-based leader in advocating for robust work options for 50+ individuals, to present “Start a New Life After 50: Create Your Own Company” learning events in five cities during 2014, starting in Atlanta on April 4th.
