Starting Your Own Business | Fifty Is The New Fifty

Things you need to remember to be successful in starting your own business

Sourced through from:

Craig Cardimon found this article. The pipe dream, for me, is still to start my own business. While I still haven’t gotten my act together to make it happen, I often wonder if, as I approach the age of 50 (I’m not quite there yet), if this is something that can still be done at my age.  This article says, yes, it can happen, but not overnight (obviously).  There are some great pointers in the article that I plan to review again once I’m ready to try to take off again, and move forward with my business. I don’t know when that will be, but for now, there are some pointers that I should heed as I plan.
