Work for Yourself @ 50+ is a three hour workshop from the AARP Foundation that helps starters over age 50 explore what self-employment looks like in today’s economy and whether it’s something to personally pursue. Work for Yourself@50+ can help you gain the knowledge, support and resources you need to make informed decisions about working for yourself — and figure out the right first steps toward successful self-employment.
The 50+ demographic is often overlooked by entrepreneurial communities. By joining us in this workshop, you will be able to explore your options, find your focus, make a plan, watch out for pitfalls, and connect with resources in your community.
During this interactive experience you’ll:
Explore the advantages and challenges of working for yourself
Land an idea for your venture
Gain encouragement from peers also exploring their options
Find connections to further program support and resources
