To bookend last week’s blog entry, we are going to go to the opposite end of the reseller spectrum and this week talk about resellers interested in starting their second career in reselling. Do you have someone in your life like this? A serious minded hardworking professional with loads of talent and energy just about retirement age or older that may have chosen to retire a bit too early? This happens all the time, maybe they got an appealing offer to take early retirement and jumped at the chance only to discover later that they are not quite cut out for taking things easy. Let’s face it, your average retirement lifestyle is not right for everyone, some people just need to keep mentally and physically active with a new challenge every day to keep themselves happy and maybe a round of Golf was not quite what they had in mind. Americans today are far more likely than ever to change career paths later in life and often the most rewarding both financially and mentally is to start your own business. Take those skills you have acquired over a lifetime of hard work and apply them to your own business venture. So just why should you consider starting your own business and becoming a reseller in your retirement? For starters, it’s a challenging and exciting new enterprise that you have complete control over. There is no one other than yourself to answer to and your success is completely determined by your own efforts. Second, running your own business gives you a higher degree of flexibility than your standard 9 to 5 job, if you’re an online reseller you can basically make up your own hours and still have ample time to pursue your hobbies and other activities. Running your own business in retirement means a bit of extra income and is a great way to keep your body and mind in good working order. After all, you are teaching yourself new skills and learning about selling and marketing your business to others, this is certainly a productive use of that business acumen you have amassed over the years. If you crave a new and unique challenge then maybe it’s time to consider starting your second career now, it's never too late to get into a new game.
