I wanted to deal with professionals, not the general public. I was used to dealing with sharp, business-savvy people already. That’s a comfortable niche for me.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
Many Americans used to imagine their retirements as a time of relaxation and leisure. But for more and more Americans, retirement is the time to find a new career. According to the AARP, eight out of 10 boomers want to keep working after retirement. Lee Landon, of Atlanta, is one of them. To keep the good times rolling, Landon began his retirement in 2013 by opening a franchise with The Interface Financial Group (IFG), the leading alternative funding source for small businesses.
“Me? Retire? Of course not! What would I do? I hate being slow,” Landon said.
Landon, who spent 30 years as a CFO for multiple Atlanta-area insurance companies, worked with a business coach to explore the benefits of opening a franchise business. All of the concepts he considered were in professional services. Ultimately, he chose the 40-year-old award-winning and established franchise, The Interface Financial Group, where he provides short-term working capital to other Atlanta-area businesses via invoice discounting.
CNN Money compiled a list of the best paying retirement jobs, and ranked franchise ownership at 18 based on market demand, scheduling flexibility, and other preferences expressed by this age group.
“You can work as little or as much as you want with IFG,” says Landon. “That’s just fine because you have time for your other interests. All I need is a laptop and smart phone. If you want to take a week to go the mountains, you can do it, as long as you have internet access.”
A federally-licensed collector of surplus military rifles and former hot-rod boat assembler, Landon appreciates the flexibility of owning an IFG franchise. Last summer he restored an old Corvette, and now has more time to travel and visit with his grown children and their families.
