You can retire to a rich life of self-employment, according to Kerry Hannon, author of this month’s Color of Money Book Club pick, “Never Too Old to Get Rich: The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Starting a Business Mid-Life.”
“The frustrating reality of ageism bias by employers is alive and well, which is why being your own boss has become the default for droves of older workers who are shut out of the workforce by employers who see their expiration date and view them as lacking stamina, up-to-date skills, or perhaps simply being too expensive in terms of salary demands,” Hannon writes.
The best entrepreneurs have a higher level of “human, social and financial capital,” according to Cal J. Halvorsen, a retirement researcher and assistant professor at the Boston College School of Social Work, who is quoted in the book.
