Embracing an “I Can Do” Mindset as a Senior Entrepreneur

Leave a Comment 680 views

It’s easy for seniors to get into a negative mindset that prevents them from keeping up with the world, getting things done and enjoying life to the fullest.

They may think they’re too tired, too old or just don’t have the skills necessary to embrace an “I can do” mindset.


Do You Really Want To Be A Couch Potato?

  • Retirement sometimes makes couch potatoes of seniors who can still make a difference, but are afraid to try.

It’s true this is a fast-changing world and new skills are necessary to do almost anything – for the young or the old. What also must be remembered is that us of the older generation have a mind full of information and experience.

  • Most seniors today find it difficult to make ends meet - even after a lifetime of saving money.

Pinching pennies wasn’t what we had in mind for our retirement years, yet it’s the way most seniors live. We want the freedom to do as and when we wish without having to check the bank statement first. That can be depressing and limiting.

  • Fortunately, today there are ways seniors can begin new careers and learn new skills to make their lives better. 

But before you can take advantage of these new opportunities, you need to develop the right mindset. Reading the right books daily can help to achieve how you should be thinking.


Start An Online  Business And Start A New Life



  • To get yourself in the right mindset to become a senior entrepreneur.

Do some research and find out what you need to know to begin a startup online business.

Don’t worry if you’re overwhelmed with information.

It is surprising how much information is absorbed without realizing it.

Narrow it down as you go to skills you could learn or perhaps already know and decide how you could turn a passion into a profit.

By the end of your research period, you’ll likely be enthused about the possibilities that exist on the Internet.


  • If you’re short on computer skills, you may want to think about joining an online help group or taking a class at your local college.

Keep negative thoughts at bay by chatting with other seniors online. 

Start your own forum, just like we did with the 60 Plus Entrepreneurs, and invite others to discuss any concerns you all may have. 

It’s interesting how much we can help each other to push forward 


Use Social Media To Be With Like Minded People


  • Social media is a great way to foster friendships and find others who are in the same boat as you. 

Stay away from negative people or those who tell you it will never work.

You’re one step ahead of them already!

You’re never too old to change your mindset and you may have to bend a little to wrap your mind around starting a new business and learning skills you never thought about.

Reinvent Yourself With New Skills


  • But, the quality of the rest of your life will be determined by the decisions you’re making now. 

Don’t label yourself by your age – or call yourself old. 

Envision yourself as an entrepreneur who is reinventing him-or her-self and find and do what you need to develop skills which will lead you to success. The world is changing rapidly and you should embrace all the good things those changes have to offer. The first step is the hardest, once there, you’re on your new life’s journey.
