Article- Age is No Obstacle in Entrepreneurship

Interesting article highlighting senior citizens who have decided to become entrepreneurs in the later stages of their careers. These cases demonstrate that entrepreneurs can come from many different demographics of people, and reinforce that there is no “mold” to fit in order to be a successful entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship may offer an option for elderly people to help support themselves as they prepare for retirement, particularly as many older workers find themselves in a less competitive position for some jobs in comparison to younger workers just entering the workforce. These older workers years of accumulated experience may make them better prepared to manage or run a small business, and thus more likely to be successful entrepreneurs.
