I want you to think about something. I believe that when people think way more gets done than when we just react to circumstances.
What do I want you to think about? I want you to think about how being a baby boom entrepreneur can help you and me make a difference in the world in which we live. Andrew Carnegie is quoted to have said you should spend the first half of your life making money and the second half giving it away. While many of us may not have been as successful as Carnegie in the first half of our lives, we can work in the second half as Carnegie did.
We live in an electronic age in which we can own and operate our businesses anywhere we have a network connection. We can leave the “daily grind” and pursue a second career that frees us to look at our passions and make a difference in our world.
I think that we boomers have deep desires to do important things. We have a history of just such desires. No matter which side of the political, social, or religious spectrum we have chosen to stand on, we boomers all feel deeply and have a burning desire to make a difference. In the second half of our lives we should choose to find ways to live out our deepest desires and passions.
So, as you consider your “retirement years” don’t forget to think about how you will spend those years. As entrepreneurs look for options that provides time and means to live your passions. Work as your needs require and give as your abundance provides and let’s live the second half of our lives with our passions and the needs of others involved.
