We talk about the importance of actually knowing your audience versus thinking you know and then building an entire product or service offering around mere speculation.

Ryan has a brilliant concept he deploys called the “Do You Hate Me” message. It’s a phenomenal way to take what appears to be a negative situation in terms of rejection and flip that into one of the most unique opportunities you will ever have with a client or prospective customer as an entrepreneur.

”Dear Congressman/Senator X,

Congress needs to include emergency supplemental appropriations funding for Puerto Rico now. Anything less would be irresponsible and immoral.

At a minimum, any legislation to assist Puerto Rico during this critical time, should include: a) immediate emergency disaster relief funding, b) critical infrastructure, housing and energy investments, c) federal health care funding parity, & d) economic tools to quicken the recovery and make Puerto Rico self-reliant over time.

The 3.4 million US Citizens of Puerto Rico are suffering a calamity never before seen in modern history. Will you publicly commit to supporting immediate emergency supplemental funding for disaster relief and recovery in Puerto Rico?

As your constituents, we are counting on your support.

Thank you for your attention to this important issue.

Sincerely,

Sign Your Name”

YES, I WANT IT!

My Take

Older entrepreneurs tend to get very overwhelmed by the prospect of starting their own business at the tail end of their corporate career, particularly when it comes to technology.

I always say this but you don’t have to be the next Zuckerberg to have a comfortable lifestyle business that supports you and your family well into your retirement years.

That being said, I do recommend older entrepreneurs hone in on what I call their power alley versus trying to do something they have never done before. For the younglings, great! Get out and explore. However, exploration requires a lot of hustle and as a Boomer with a 20-30+ year career behind you, you’ve already done your hustle and soul searching. You know who you are and where you provide value to the world.

So, how can we maximize your earning potential AND do so in your own business rather than for someone else is the real question?

Starting a business has never been easier with the power of the internet and even with a very basic website coupled with a content and social strategy, you can most certainly subsidize your current income, at the very least.

More importantly, you can do it from wherever, give back to the younger generations and enjoy the fruit of your labor with the freedom to enjoy retirement as you please.

Make sure to download my Boomer Startup Kit above for all my tricks on what you should be doing and considering for your transition.
