If you knew your age advantages, you should have started long ago.
Could there be any age advantages for us grown-up adults when doing business online? Typically, we believe that entrepreneurship and business online, in particular, are just for the younger generation.
While growing up, the timeline changes the way of view things in life. Being a business owner at an upper age isn’t what you have been taught. However, there are so many age advantages that you can use to your advantage.
In an earlier article, you can read about some well-known people who made it as grown-ups. At Paul McCartney’s concert a few months ago, I got another proof of what age can be if you give yourself the opportunity. Watch and listen to this fantastic musician for almost three hours without a break and notice how he enjoyed the passion of standing on the stage; this 80-year young gentleman gave a taste of what true entrepreneurship is all about.
Use These Age Advantages for Your Business
Too many put an equal sign between starting a business and money. But starting a business, especially when you are getting older, is much more than just money. To get rich can be interpreted in different ways. Money as such won’t make you rich.
The motivation to create something, promote something, and help others could enrich your life more than any money on earth. When that happens, something curious begins: the money will chase you!
Watch the video and get some ideas about what you can do using advantages to your benefit.
Let’s dive a bit deeper into the 5 age advantages you should start using from today. It’s not a magic formula but common sense when referring to your life history.
Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, during all your active years, you are sitting on an asset deserving a better fate than remaining as a contact book with names and telephone numbers.
Networking is no rocket science but a social behavior. Be yourself and approach people by being to their help. For sure, you have developed skills during your lifetime that are above average, or perhaps you are considered an expert. There are plenty of people eagerly searching for the expertise you are representing.
In our new world, every day more digitalized, all social media is nothing else but a huge networking environment. Use it!
The fact that you are reading this article proves your digital connection. You sure have a Facebook account, perhaps a YouTube channel, an Instagram account, Tic-Toc, LinkedIn, well, you get it…
Life is a journey with successes to be proud of and failures to learn from. Without being a financial expert, you learn specific skills along the road. Do you remember the purchase of your first property? Did you just put the money on the table and sign the commercial papers? No! I’m sure you calculated over and over again to make sure the financing of the house turned out to be feasible.
There have never been so many opportunities for people to start their own online businesses as there are today. However, many fail because the initial investment isn’t considered seriously.
Suppose you should start a franchise business with any of the most famous brands in the market. In that case, we are talking about 6 figures investments. No one makes such an investment without in-depth analysis and calculation.
You can start your online business today with a modest investment of a few hundred dollars. With your financial skills, or should we call it financial knowledge, you know that it’s not only about the money you put in but also how to build your business to generate profit.
This is one of the reasons why we insist on commitment from our members before even taking out their credit cards. You need to commit yourself to doing the work with all the support, help, and coaching you will get from our community. If that’s in place, just go ahead! The future looks great!…but hurry up. Many would like to get access to this unique system.
We, grown-up adults, have much more freedom than any other social group. If you are retired or are about to retire, it comes with a lot of freedom, the freedom to do what you want on your terms.
Use that freedom and age advantages to really do something. Personally, I hate the word “retired,” even if I officially retired from my corporate job 7 years ago. It’s like the first step to stepping down from your life. Instead, it should be a step to start living that lifestyle you never had the opportunity to do before.
The best thing I could do when approaching the official retirement date was to create, grow and run my online business. I love every day of it; it generates an extra income stream and gives me a lot of freedom.
Freedom is to work on your terms and do what you love to do. Fortunately, I came across the best online business system. As a complete newbie, I got all the necessary training and support. After running my business, the Golden Age Lifestyle, for more than eight years, my mission is to motivate people of my age group to take the step.
To work when you decide, to work from anywhere, and to write your own paycheck that’s real freedom in life.
As a grown-up adult, your perspective is different and more flexible than the one of a younger person. You view things from a different angle.
You have learned how to focus and what comes first and what can wait. Also, you know how to combine hard work with family and social life. Probably you have some savings and are not forced to work around the clock to survive. In other words, you become in charge of your own life.
It sounds a bit cliché, but the truth is that most people trade their best years for a monthly paycheck. Maybe you have a good salary, and the income is like a drug. You need more. For what? To buy stuff.
Can you relate to these wise words by Dalai Lama? He was asked what surprised him most about humanity. This was his answer:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and dies having never really lived.”
On purpose, I leave this part about “Experience” to the end. In a way, it sums up the previous four parts.
Go through again all the skills you have gained during your active life. Check your network, and activate it; I mean, start to socialize by using social media.
Make an honest brainstorming session with yourself and identify what freedom really is for you. Do you really live that life you dreamt about as a teenager? Are your financial resources limiting what you would like to do?
Most important of all, be honest to yourself. Do not follow the stream and do what you think you should do to fit into society. It’s your life, and you have the liberty to decide what it should look like.
Use your experience, both from a positive and negative perspective. Learn from your mistakes and focus on where your strengths are.
The Route to Benefit from Your Age Advantages
We all are different, but at the same time, we all have a common dream:
To live that life that you daydream about every now and then. It’s not a lifestyle earmarked for people with exceptional backgrounds. It’s for every human being with an honest desire to make the rest of your life the best one you ever lived.
In my case, I’m blessed to have come across the Mentors platform over 8 years ago, and it contributed to making my “retired life” the best one you can think about.
There are two ways you can become a member of our community as well.
- Be a member of Launch You by going for the LaunchPad alternative
- Join Launch You through the Modern Wealthy alternative
In both cases, you can immediately start to build your online business. It’s a question of choice and at what speed you would like to join our system and community.
