Or the final years of your life will be painful.
For many baby boomers, the future looks bleak. If your pension plan survived the recent financial correction, you are among the fortunate ones. If you have managed to retain a job to retire from then you are among the fortunate ones.
If your future looks as bleak as it does for thousands of baby boomers, then your alternative is to look at what you can to do to change your future.
One option for baby boomers is to open a business. Notice I did not say buy a business because that requires money and risk that many baby boomers can ill afford. But there are opportunities for small business and with the knowledge, experience and changes in promotion thanks to social media, there are opportunities for baby boomers.
Eat the Rhino can help you decide if your business idea will create a viable business plan. It will help you with the mindset issues including the lack of confidence and disillusionment many baby boomers have experienced over the last few years.
And there are benefits both personally and locally, if baby boomers keep active, involved and contributing.
The advantages include better health because the mind is busy and active which reduces the chances of dementia. Also with the activity, the sitting around feeling sorry for oneself decreases. There is an opportunity to earn money to buy more that what any pension would provide. And considering that most baby boomers (suggested as high as 90-95%) are likely to be broke, and then any extra money is a bonus with the increasing prices on basics
And we keep the knowledge in the system. After all thirty to forty years of training and life experience is a shame to lose.
And the community benefit – baby boomers opening a business and hiring one person could wipe out unemployment.
