Your business startup, after retirement.

This is a great time to begin a business startup, and you can already see how many companies have started in this quarantine time. The world has changed, so many things that were made in the same way for decades evolved quickly. If they were essentials, people found the way to do it carefully, remotely, or online. But, all the other businesses can’t be closed forever, they are part of the economy in society and a way to earn money for some of us.


Whatever may your case be, it will be easier if you are young and manage very well computers and online business startup as something normal in day by day; but what if you have all your life working as a regular employee? Or only know how to work in place? Probably think that you don’t have more options than retirement, or keep looking for a job that can be made from home.


Nothing of this can stop you, because if you are young you can always learn how to take your career to freelance. But, if you have many years of experience doing a specific job or know very well how to handle a job position; there’s no need to start from the beginning, we’ll tell you why...


Your experience and time invested are worth a lot!


There is always a chance of change, and learning during these trying times; it doesn’t matter if you are too young or a bit old. Some Americans are leaving their jobs, considering making the most of their knowledge to live while staying in a safe place. Older people are the most threatened of the population, that’s why we dedicate to you. So, What can you do?

  • Share your knowledge with the world.

As we said, your time and experience are worth it. Trust us, there’s no college, course, or guide that can teach more than the experience. So many things can happen in the practice without precedents, that you know how to fix for instinct more than any theory. Also, you are a living memory of the process that your career has been put through the past years, and that’s what companies are looking for when they try to hire new engineers with over 5 or 10 years of experience.

  • Teach a new generation, the basics of your career.

Okay, you want to share your experience but, Where? Here you have some platforms that can help you to publish your courses, or private class: VarsityTutors.com, Skillshare.com, Preply.com, Chegg.com/tutors/, TutorMe.com, eTutorWorld.com, Udemy.com, etc.

  • Provides professional advice to other professionals.

If you can’t (Or just don’t want to), teach your knowledge but have so much experience that you can charge for it. Could have your own business startup: offer to solve problems; (from engineers to designers) Are issues with the software, hardware, tricky clients, old machinery, that you already know how to handle. Only you know where the clients for this are. This is a point only for those who have a remarkable trajectory, and want to take a rest without leaving their old job behind. Find a virtual assistant, that holds your business startup; if you have a huge workload; they’ll help you manage an agenda.

  • Work per milestone, delivering only final products.

Sometimes our job can be done and delivered without supervision and remotely, but companies want to keep their employees in-house for many reasons. It can’t be applied to everyone and all kinds of jobs. If you are a mechanical engineer, maybe you don’t have all the tools to deliver the final product. But if you are one of those that learned how to use the software from home and are amazing, providing blueprints, consider doing it from it and say good-bye to the full-time job, beginning your own business startup. Earn some freedom to find some new clients if you want it too. Find a virtual assistant, if you need someone to help you manage an agenda, and free some time if it needs it; nothing helps the freelancer’s world to grow as much as workload and successful professionals, like you.
