9781511841931: A Senior's Journey: Job or Entrepreneur? How to Prepare to Un-Retire (Volume 1)

Senior Citizens often find themselves in the “is this all there is?” syndrome once they’ve retired. At this pivotal point in their life, they may also find the financial security they had expected won’t meet their needs and lifestyle. Whether a Senior chooses to go back into the workforce, or start a new business as an entrepreneur, the path to becoming a “Comeback Senior” can be challenging and confusing. If a Senior has to (or wants to) return full-time or part-time to the workforce -- whether due to lack of finances, boredom, loneliness, not feeling creative or productive, or not having a sense of usefulness or purpose -- A Senior’s Journey: Job or Entrepreneur? How to Prepare to Un-Retire is an easy-to-read, user-friendly guide to ease them through the daunting process of un-retiring. What’s covered... · Realizing you’re never too old to make your goals and dreams come true. · Mindset preparation and strategies for going back into the workforce, or for becoming an entrepreneur. · How to pin down if your billion-dollar idea is the right one, and if you have the entrepreneurial spirit. · Turning a hobby into income-earning potential. · Tips for writing the perfect resume and cover letter to first get then nail the job interview. Returning to the workforce doesn’t have to be intimidating for you or even someone you know who’s having to un-retire (for whom this book may also be beneficial). Easing back into working – when you thought you’d be sitting on a beach sipping cocktails – doesn’t have to be difficult if you have the right information and resources at your fingertips. A Senior’s Journey: Job or Entrepreneur? How to Prepare to Un-Retire is filled with Sue Whitaker’s personal stories from her own path to un-retirement, as well as enlightening stories of other “Comeback Seniors” in their pursuit to un-retire. It’s also a powerful resource to help Seniors switch from “is this all there is?” to many years of satisfaction and happiness. And that can be you!

About the Author:

A self-described “serial entrepreneur,” Sue Whitaker's career path has included owning a retail store, a marine business, an apparel design and manufacturing company, and a wine marketing business. When Sue became a Senior Citizen, she became acutely aware of the many issues people are confronted with before, during and after retirement. Watching Seniors -- including herself -- being faced with financial concerns due to economical downturns, loneliness, boredom and lack of purpose, it became apparent that too many people were falling into the “is this all there is?” syndrome. Her book series -- A Senior’s Journey – will be relaying her experiences and suggestions on various topics that may be of benefit to people during their journey to find new joy, purpose and meaning to their later years in life. Job or Entrepreneur? How to Prepare to Un-Retire -- was written to ease Comeback Seniors back into the workforce no matter whether they want to get a job, or become an entrepreneur and own a business. Taking this one “step” further... ...with a strong and confident spirit – and by virtue of her goal to help others -- Sue knew she was heading toward something meaningful when she founded the nonprofit entity, Slippers for Seniors (information below), to put a smile on the face of every Senior in an assisted living or nursing home in the United States. (She intends to donate a portion of the proceeds from her books to keep the program alive and thriving.) Sue managed several local and national political campaigns; was appointed by two governors to serve on various boards and commissions; and was appointed as an ambassador to the People to People Program, and as a delegate/speaker to the National Women’s Business Summit. She has served on several boards of directors for charitable organizations, and has been a lifelong community volunteer because she believes in giving back to the community. As a public speaker she has spoken before a U.S. Senatorial Committee on private enterprise issues, marketing classes at several universities, civic organizations, corporate meetings, conventions and major events. She’s also a former host of The Business Lovemaker and Wine Clubs Online radio shows. Sue Whitaker is the daughter of school teacher parents who instilled in her the mindset that continued education is essential for a quality life. She has five children, eleven grandchildren, and currently resides in Coronado, California.
