The Most Inspiring “Problem” with Starting a Business in Midlife

Young entrepreneurs might get all the press, but midlife entrepreneurs — sometimes known as “encore entrepreneurs” — are a category that’s showing explosive growth.

Starting a business in midlife is in vogue. And there are lots of great reasons for it which we’ll explore here.

According to a study by Paychex, there has been a massive surge in people seeking midlife career change since 2007. Here’s what they found:

“In 2007, there were two 50-plus year old entrepreneurs in every 10. Today, the rate stands at three in every 10.”

That’s a 50% increase in entrepreneurship for this age group!

6 Key Qualities the Best Paid Mastermind Groups Offer

Mastermind groups have made a massive difference in my business.

There was a time in my life when I was a single mom with two young children and a business that needed to support the three of us.

But “support” wasn’t enough for me — I wanted it to support us in comfort.

I wanted to have enough money to do nice things for my kids. To treat them once in a while. To make both needed repairs and nice-to-have updates to the home we were living in.

To squirrel some money away in a savings account so we’d have a cushion for emergencies.

To have money to invest in my retirement fund.

In short — I had big plans.

Way bigger than the revenue I was bringing in at the time.

All those years feeling like you’ve got things under control have led to this moment.

And now … you’re trembling with fear. Will you be able to translate your experience offline to online business success?

All those years feeling like you know how to run a business — like you understand the ground rules and you have a process for playing by them and winning — they’re not helping you right now.

Because …

After running an offline business, you have decided to build a business online.

You look around and realize that the rules are different online.

Moving from offline to online business isn’t a simple switch, because what works offline may not work online — at all. You have to learn a whole new set of skills.

Yes …

The good news is that you’re way ahead of people who have never built a business at all.

Even though you’ll need to learn new skills, new approaches, and a new way of generating revenue, you’ll do this with the confidence that you’re building on a foundation of your previous success.

Kickstart online business success when you stop "learning" and start implementing

How to Kickstart Online Business Success When You Stop “Learning”

As online entrepreneurs, we sit down every day to work in front of what I not-so-affectionately call a “Distraction Box.”

When else in human history have we been expected to do productive work by using the exact same device that also provides entertainment, connection with loved ones, and irresistible distractions at every turn?

Give yourself a break: it’s not easy! For any of us — me included.

But I’m here to report that:

Productive days and weeks are possible — even when your productive work happens on a “Distraction Box.”

With just a handful of simple new habits, you can stop procrastination in its tracks without needing to sign up for a new course or read a new book.

(That’s what “learning” often is — a noble pursuit that is procrastination in disguise. More on this later.)

The result from adopting these new productive habits?

You’ll find yourself hitting those elusive goals. You’ll step into a leadership role in your online business.

Each success will boost your confidence and your “distraction resistance” muscle will grow stronger.

Ready?

Let’s get started.
