Starting a Biz over 50!
Are you over 50 and think that it is too late to start your own business?
This week’s guest on the Rocking Midlife® Podcast is the wonderful Colleen Kochannek who not only shares her personal story of creating a new business over the age of 50, but who has encouraging insights for other women who might be thinking they are too old to consider becoming a midlife entrepreneur.
How to Start Your Own Business as a Midlife Entrepreneur
After a successful corporate career, Colleen found herself made redundant, and thought she would launch her own business. She figured this would be a breeze given her past career – and boy was she wrong! She had to teach herself all of the tech that younger people have grown up with, and it was during this process she realised that nobody was teaching this information in a way that a beginner 50+ year old woman could understand.
Hence, she decided she would help other women who were facing this same steep learning curve, and her business Scrappy Frontier – helping women from the Typewriter GenerationTM was born.
My interview with Colleen covers a lot of ground, including:
- Why starting a new business after 50 makes sense.
- How it’s easy to be overwhelmed by “gurus”
- Why you need to be comfortable being a beginner
- Why you need to be open to learning about tech
- Why your mindset matters!
If you’ve even vaguely thought to start your own business, this is the episode for you, so be sure to leave a comment and share it with your midlife friends!
