Each profile provides a blue print for deciding on, starting and building a business. With the advice in this book, you’ll learn how to turn your age into an asset.
What Readers Say:
“The Best Home Businesses for People 50+ is “well-researched, thorough, specific and an excellent place to start your research into what you really want to do — and might realistically be able to do — in your later-life career. I’ve been pretty good at reinventing myself several times, career-wise, but this book had info on occupations and solo or small businesses that I didn’t even know existed. As a reality check, the info was accurate and adequate for the three that I already knew quite a bit about, from experience.”
“This book literally saved my life. It showed me that there is life after the fall, and it helped me to get back on my feet. I don’t earn a lot of money, but I’m doing better than the near-minimum wage I would have gotten flipping hamburgers at a fast food joint or working at Wal-Mart. In my opinion, there’s something for just about everyone in this book–providing, of course, you really want to work.”
“For almost a year I had been looking for some way to earn a living at home and toward the back you had a chapter on Quilting. In my lifetime I had made only four quilts, had them all stitched by professional long-arm quilters, and had never even seen a long-arm quilting machine operate. I want to say thank you for your part in changing and improving my life.”
What Experts Say:
“For those who take the “my way” approach to work life instead of the “bye way,” the Edwards’ new book is a blue print to help boomers bank on a business in the home. It offers information on selecting, starting, running and building a career based on individual needs, talents and ideals specific to the over-50 generation.”

“I sat down to glance and skim through this book and found myself a couple of hours later reading it page by page. The information is presented in a clear no nonsense way that not only reviews many businesses that would allow working seniors (or anybody for that matter) to create a business but gives some great resources and a virtual roadmap on making it a success.”
