5. How to Start A Business In Your 50s, 60s or Older

If you’re ready to take the leap into entrepreneurship, I got you covered.

In this episode, we’re going to cover the basics of starting a business in your 50s 60s, and older.

I'm gonna touch a little on what shifts you’ll need in your thinking, focus on how your age (and experience) is an asset you can capitalize on, and end with a step-by-step process to get started.

If this is your first time listening to the Age Has No Limit podcast or watching the video, you may not know that like many other people, I started a business in 2020. I started my business when I was 48 and now at 51 approaching 52, I can say it changed my life for the better.

In this episode, I hope to inspire those of you who’ve been thinking about taking the leap into entrepreneurship to ‘just do it.’
