The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that those ages 65 and over will experience the fastest rates of labor force growth by 2024 (https://www.bls.gov/emp/ep_table_303.htm). Meagher expects to be one of those workers. "I love my job. I'm getting better every year, and my writing skills have improved. I could do this well into my seventies."

Startups have certain 'blind spots' that they are not even aware of. These can be costly, and more often than not carry grave consequences. There are things you, as an entreprenuer know, and there are also things you are aware of that you don't know. However, do you realize that there are things beyond what you know that you don't know? Indeed, there are. This is where the core value lives in a mature advisory group: accessing the total unknown that you don't know about.

Come to our next event and find out for yourself why investors prefer funding a balanced startup... with maturepreneurs! (smile)

FACTS & STATS:

Two decades ago less than a third of people ages 55 and over were employed or looking for work. Today the share is 40 percent, according to the St. Louis Federal Reserve, up 10 percent from 1990. "There are a lot of those ages 55 to 70, and each of them is more likely to work now than in previous generations," said Matt Rutledge, a research economist for The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.
