Why You Should Consider Starting a Solo Business After 50

So you can take control, and live your life the way you want to.

Many people of our age view freelancing or consulting as a ‘Plan B’ in case of a layoff. But layoffs are becoming the norm – in fact, does anyone really think ‘job security’ still exists?

Why not look at it differently: take control, turn your ‘Plan B’ into your ‘Plan A’, and use it as a springboard to the life you’ve always wanted.

After all, the Internet, and today’s amazing technology, makes starting and scaling up a solopreneur business easy.

Just you. No employees, no hassle. And the ability to scale it to 7 figures if that’s what you want.

Here’s the thing:

Work and career provides purpose and meaning to many people throughout their lives.

But with advances in technology, and the underlying ageism that’s a fact of life, the risk of being laid off is higher now than ever.

Particularly in the current pandemic.

Starting a one-person, solopreneur business, focused on something you’re good at, will put you in control.

And it can give you the flexibility (and funding) to follow your dream.

There’s probably no better time to start than now – while you can still control the timing.

Maybe I can help. . .

I started my solopreneur business in 2009, at the age of 52.

Today I scour the web daily for resources that are helpful and useful, and which enable me to continue growing and improving my business.

It’s a permanent learning experience, because new tools and ways of doing things are appearing all the time.

It’s exciting!

I find things like:

  • New business tools
  • Advice from experts on new or different marketing tactics
  • Ways of better managing my business finances
  • Different types of business opportunities that technology makes possible today
  • Interviews with successful solopreneurs
  • Ways to sell stuff online (with or without a website)

Each week I collate the best stuff that I find into an email, that I send to people who are also running, or planning to run, their own solo, one-person businesses.

Whether you’re thinking about starting, or already running, your own solo business, the information I send you will help you to get it started and grow it as far as you want to.

Who am I?

I grew up in Zimbabwe (it was Rhodesia back then), studied in South Africa, and I’ve lived in Hong Kong since 1995.

Martin MaldenAfter leaving school and university, I spent 23 years in the corporate world, initially back in Rhodesia, then 16 years in the UK and 14 years in Hong Kong, before starting my solo business in 2009.

My level of satisfaction and enjoyment, my overall lifestyle, improved so dramatically after I set up on my own that my only regret was not doing it earlier!

Anyway, once again, you’re very welcome to join us.

Each email I send out contains links to up to 4 different, hand-picked resources, from experts in their fields, on how to set up and grow a solo business.

It provides valuable information to anyone who wants to set up, or is running, their own small business.

Add your email address to the box below – I send out emails every Monday with the best hand-picked resources I’ve found during the previous week:
