To start a business after you retire may seem daunting, but there could be more motivation to take action than you might think. The truth is that there’s never a ‘perfect’ time to start a business, so we’ve put together some reasons why a retirement business could be the answer.
This generation of retirees is going to live longer than any in history. Today’s seniors are healthier, more active, and receiving better preventative care than ever before. On top of that, a growing group of scientists are trying to harness technology and modern medicine to slow down the aging process. Experts call the cumulative effect of these changes to life expectancy “the longevity effect.” They project that extending our years of healthy living can have tremendous benefits both to individuals and to society as a whole.

Having financial security so we can provide for our families is obviously a worthy reason. However, as important as money is, feeling that the work we do is meaningful matters too. It’s better for our health. It’s better for our relationships. And it just makes getting up in the morning much more desirable.
