Becoming a Midlife Entrepreneur (Part 3)

This is Part 3 of a 3-Part series on making a midlife career or job change. You can review Part 2 here: Must-Know Money Tips for a Midlife Career Change

Are you considering going from an employee to becoming self-employed in midlife?

I spent 15 years in the corporate world serving as a financial advisor before walking away in 2009 at the age of 40. Ultimately I ended up starting my own boutique wealth management firm serving midlife women professionals and the LGBTQ community to continue my passion on my own terms.

The transition from employee to business owner was both exciting and challenging. I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do when starting a business. I was also naive and didn’t know exactly what to expect.

In this podcast episode, I walk through the reasons why entrepreneurship may appeal to you as well as both the positives and negatives of being your own boss.

Also, I provide a handful of valuable tips for you if you decide to go this route and become an entrepreneur in midlife!

Before you make a career or job change in your 40s, 50s, or 60s, I also recommend engaging in a real financial planning process with an experienced Certified Financial Planner.

You’ve likely worked very hard to accumulate retirement assets and savings up to this point, and a detailed financial plan can help ensure that you stay on track toward your financial and retirement goals.
