According to a recent article on Forbes.com, workers ages 50 and older are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the jobs available to them, saying the things they want out of a position are lacking in the jobs they hold. Planning industry leader Wise Business Plans™ is proud to announce a renewed commitment to helping older workers become experienced, successful business owners.
"People are living longer and longer and retiring later and later," said Joseph Ferriolo, director of Wise, which provides companies of all sizes with completely customized business plans. "There's absolutely no reason why someone can't start a business at 50 and run it for decades."
Ferriolo said starting over can be daunting for anyone, but older entrepreneurs often feel like they're expected to know everything from Day 1.
"Often these are people who have already built successful careers, but they're looking for something more," he said. "They can be hesitant about asking for help, because they are usually the people helping others. But starting a business offers unique challenges that canbe difficultto navigatethrough if you've never tackled itbefore."
Especially useful to the 50+ young, Ferriolo said, is Wise's policy of matching every client up with a dedicated, MBA-educated plan writer.
"It can be difficult to move from a longtime career — and often a position of power — to a situation where you may have unanswered questions," he said. "Our staff is trained to help business owners get up-to-speed very quickly, helping them feel fully prepared to step into the command role they've taken for themselves."
A new start becomes something exciting and personally satisfying once there's a clear roadmap to success in place, he said.
"What an adventurous, amazing way to enter into some of the best years of your life. We can't wait to see how these clients change the world, one business at a time."
