Hello fellow Encore Hustlers
If you are dreaming of pursuing an encore career it takes more than wishes and daydreams to make it happen and to be successful.
Read this article from Money which has great advice on how to grow a dream into a business:
- Network like crazy, not just for potential clients but for advice and as sounding board on your business plan. Your network will also be necessary to provide emotional support when you need it.
- Create a budget that will provide the necessary start up costs and to bridge for lean times when the business is launching.
- Be physically and mentally fit for the stress and long hours that will come with starting the venture.
If you have all three in place your chances of successful will be greatly enhanced, just like Mike Lowe, 70, who went from corporate lawyer to opening Green Hat Gin, a distillery in Washington D.C. He has a great website with lots of info on mixology and the history of distilling in D.C.
