Most of us are refusing to retire like our ancestors – accepting the gold watch and then reclining in a chair for the rest of our lives, becoming a couch potato. Us Boomers are active, both mentally and physically, and are leaving our own footprints on the world. We are using our wealth of knowledge and experience we have gained over the years to help others.
Best of all, us boomers are enjoying the innate freedom that comes from being an online entrepreneur. At approximately 80 million (and growing), we boomers are meeting our retirement years with entrepreneurial mindsets.
Baby Boomers, Like Us, Are Unique In History.
We are using the computer and the internet to restart our lives and supplement our incomes. The freedom we enjoy stems from having more time to devote to other pursuits like travelling or spending more quality time with family and friends, besides work and focusing on making money for our later life.
Instead, we’re having the freedom of a new lifestyle and concentrating on building businesses that we can be proud of and learn from. New retirees are used to making an impact on the world in which we live and now we’re redefining retirement by becoming successful online entrepreneurs.
Baby Boomers Can Choose How To Work Our Day
If the weather is good we can go and enjoy it because we are not working set hours. With an online business, the work can get done any time of day or night so allowing a massive amount of flexibility. The internet doesn’t sleep.

As past employees of various companies that use computers, we’ve learned the skills necessary to make money online and share our knowledge rather than having it go to waste.|
Boomers No Longer Have To Risk Our Life Savings ( If we have any)

Building and nurturing an online businesses also boost the boomers’ enthusiasm for life and excitement about owning our own businesses and supplementing our retirement incomes enough to enjoy our retirement years rather than dread them.
