We’re having a wonderful week here at Better, Smarter, Richer. Not only was Jackie featured as the keynote speaker at Tuesday’s “Encore Entrepreneur” workshop, which took place at PCC’s Rock Creek Campus, but she made it into The Oregonian…TWICE!
The workshop, presented in partnership by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and AARP, was a tremendous success, with two hundred registered attendees and 20 people on the waitlist. But no surprise there: in Tuesday’s Oregonian article (click here for the OregonLive version), Eric Mortenson quoted experts (including Jackie!) who predict that baby boomers will be a major part of the next wave of start-up business owners, creative entrepreneurs, franchise purchasers, solopreneurs, and consultants. In Wednesday’s article, Mortenson highlighted all of the enthusiasm at the seminar and explored the wealth of resources available to encore entrepreneurs.
Check out both articles and join the conversation! Any encore entrepreneurs out there? What has worked for you?
