Work and entrepreneurship in retirement
Monday - 9/24/2012, 12:06pm EDT
For many people, retirement offers the first opportunity to "do your own thing". Many people look at that as an opportunity to work in a different field or start a small business. According to the Wall Street Journal, 50% of retirees have a part-time job, while 10% work full time.
Also 10% of retirees open a small business. These businesses may be franchises, consulting firms, or may grow out of hobbies. Before one starts a business venture, they should consider carefully the costs - financial and time-wise costs of start-up. Look at the failure rates of similar attempts at this business, and consider if the market can support another business like this.
