When starting an online business after 60, you know that age is to your advantage


Starting an online business when retired or about to retire can sound daunting but, at the same time, challenging. Which describes your opinion the best?

Have you ever wondered why more adults don’t start their own business?

I’ve been in the online space since 2014, and I can tell you it’s not because they don’t want to. It’s because they’re scared. The fear of failure, stress, financial insecurity, and not knowing enough about the topic. They worry that if they try to do it alone and fail, then everyone will laugh at them for being stupid enough to even consider starting a business in the first place.


Starting an Online Business and Defeating the Fear

Starting an Online Business and Defeating the FearThe truth is that any successful entrepreneur started off with these same fears and overcame them by learning from mistakes and taking small steps toward success one at a time… until eventually, the sum of those small steps became something bigger than anything they could have dreamed possible when they were just starting out!

Let’s look at the 5 most common fears blocking people, and grown-up adults, particularly the most.


Fear of lack of skills and knowledge

Let’s start with the first roadblock popping up in many people’s heads as soon as even talk about the adventure of starting an online business. It’s common among more grown-up citizens to fear a lack of knowledge. The old cliché,

“I’m too old for this,”

isn’t valid anymore.

Today the entire online environment is constructed to fit everyone on the planet if the willingness exists.

Most people starting an online business today are complete newbies. By joining a professional system and platform like ModernWealthy, the fear is gone before even starting.

Being honest with yourself, you will quickly find out that the fear of lack of skills and knowledge no longer is a valid argument to not get started. Rather it is an essential objection and should be treated as such.


Fear of financial uncertainty

Financial insecurity is a real fear, and it’s natural as humans to have that feeling sometimes. After all, any business must generate profit in the end. Otherwise, it’s not a business. However, viewing it as a challenge or obstacle is a big difference.

But it’s also one that you can overcome. The ModernWealthy training program helps you do just that by helping you get your business up and running in record time, creating a plan for success, and providing the tools needed to push forward in the right direction.


Fear of responsibility and stress

The fear of stress and responsibility is a common one. It can be hard to imagine yourself as the owner of your own business, with all the responsibilities that come with it.

You might be worried about whether or not you’ll be able to handle things like paying bills on time, keeping up with customer service requests, and staying motivated when things get tough.

The good news is that there are ways for grown-up adults who want to start an online business but fear the responsibility involved in doing so. Those ways include taking control over your life rather than letting others dictate what happens next!

Starting an online business as a small solopreneur activity helps you keep your workload on a decent level. After a while, when things are developing under your control, you can start scaling your business.

The key is that you should completely control your own business.


Fear of not having appealing ideas

The fear of not having a great idea is understandable. If you’re like most people, you’ve spent your life working for others and have never had to develop your own ideas. You might be thinking,

“I don’t even know where to start.”

Or maybe it’s more like this:

“I do have ideas for my own business, but they’re all terrible!”

And either way, there are plenty of other fears that could be holding you back from starting an online business at all (or at least from doing it right away).

The route to success is to join a system, platform, community, or whatever you would like to call it, where you constantly will get new ideas on how to approach your business set up the best way.


Fear of failure

As a summary of all the fears described, fear of failure, in general, is what is holding back people from even giving it a try.

Fear of failure is a natural part of being human. The gut feeling tells us to avoid taking risks because we might fail and be embarrassed or hurt. But while it’s normal to feel anxious about starting an online business, this fear can become paralyzing if you let it.

The good news is that fear of failure is a learned behavior. You didn’t come out of the womb with this mindset! You probably picked up your first lesson from family members or teachers who valued safety over risk-taking.

As an adult, maybe colleagues or friends reinforced those beliefs by saying things like,

“If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.”

You can change these negative thoughts by reflecting on how they’ve impacted your life so far:

  • Have they stopped you from doing anything new?
  • Have they limited what kind of career path would be available for you?

If you can relate to this, then try setting realistic goals for yourself (like launching a side hustle) instead of thinking too big right away…and remember:

There will always be time later on down the line if things don’t work out right away!
