With the recent recession and slow economic return, many of us are looking at working far beyond the usual retirement age of 65. For some this means staying in a job for a few more years, but for others an encore career can be the opportunity to start work on a project that has been waiting in the wings for many years.
A recent article by CNBC shows that encore careers are a surprisingly common scenario among Boomers, with long lost passions bubbling up to the surface or the opportunity to use skills that have been honed over many years to help others. As Boomers have long been seen as a generation that has done things their own way, this trend towards successive careers is in some ways an inevitability!
I have been thrilled to be able to help many Boomers get their encore careers moving forwards. Often getting a website is seen as a huge hurdle, but after listening to goals, hopes and fears, have been able to get a number of Boomers relaunched – and delighted to find that they are perfectly capable of adding things to their sites and maintaining a social media presence.
