 Career Reinvention for
Baby Boomers

May 22 & 24  



Many people are restless or burned out in their present career.  They find that retirement is quickly approaching and they are afraid that it will be mind-numbingly boring.  Today's baby boomers aren't ready to be put out to pasture.  They are active, vibrant and feel they have lots more to offer yet the job market isn't necessarily in agreement.  Self-employment allows people to learn new skills and achieve self-fulfillment.  For many Baby Boomers starting a franchise has become a promising path to transition from corporate to business ownership.   This month's free webinar will explore opportunities to reinvent YOUR career.  We will cover the following:        

  • Finding fulfilling career options
  • Transferring your experience to business ownership
  • How to use franchising to achieve your goals
  • Building YOUR empire
  • What type of person is right for business ownership
  • How to compare business options
  • AND...plenty of time for live Q&A!

10 Reasons You Won't be Able to Retire at 65 

"Workers are more pessimistic than ever before about their retirement prospects. Employees feel less confident about their ability to retire than at any other point in the past two decades, according to the latest installment of a 21-year-old Employee Benefit Research Institute and Mathew Greenwald and Associates annual survey. But this pessimism about retirement could also be viewed as the first time employees have realistically assessed their retirement preparedness. "People are increasingly recognizing the level of savings realistically needed for a comfortable retirement," says Jack VanDerhei, EBRI research director and co-author of the report. "Far too many people had false confidence in the past." Here is why you probably won't be able to retire at age 65."
