This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Are you a corporate executive at risk of losing your job or military officer being forced into leaving military service early because of your age?
Look around you and you’ll see highly qualified, long term employees in their 50’s and 60’s unexpectedly leaving the company who suddenly find themselves jobless.
Losing your job at 50+ brings with it a host of major issues that can have a long-term impact on your lifestyle, your immediate family and financial well-being.
Truth be told, not everyone in this age group will land on their feet and find a new job. If they do, they are likely to earn 75% of what they previously earned, and it can take at least 37 weeks and up to a year and a half to land a new job depending on what country you live in.
It’s time to be pro-active and become a 50-60 Something Start-up Entrepreneur. The time to start a new business is BEFORE you leave your current job.
Waiting until after a job loss will be too late as negative emotions such as shame, guilt and despair will kick in and may cloud your ability to make sound decisions.
Unemployed persons 50 years and above are likely to:
•Go through a period of long-term unemployment of 36 weeks to 18 months depending on your age and the country you live in.
•Experience a longer lifespan well into their 80’s, 90’s and possibly 100+ years of age.
•Unwilling join the Club Sandwich generation looking after elderly parents, financially supporting and housing their own Boomerang children and grandchildren.
•Be forced to tap into Social Security benefits and receive lower pay-outs due to early withdraw before the designated retirement age.
•Become part of the Gig Economy with no prospect of a steady pay check or benefits.
•Find yourself at risk of receiving smaller Social Security benefits due to diminishing funds which will become impacted as of 2020.
•Realize that the amount of money they have in savings is not enough for them to maintain their current lifestyle into their 80’s and beyond.
If you were to lose your job today, would you find yourself experiencing one or many of the scenarios listed above? The simple truth is that you’re most likely not in a financial position to retire just now and live the lifestyle you desire for the next 30—40 years of your life.
The good news is, it’s the best time to be an entrepreneur!
