Dear Fellow Boomers,

The intention of this blog is to create a dialogue between boomers who are in business, contemplating a business, or just curious! I myself am 65 years old and have just completed writing a book called "Zentrepreneurism" - A 21st Century Guide to the New World of Business. www.zentrepreneurism.com. The book, to my amazement and pleasure has become somewhat of a movement.

I currently am partnering with some fellow Boomers in Buffalo, New York, who feel it is time to establish a virtual hub on the internet, where we can share our fears, challenges, issues, joys and success stories around becoming entrepreneurs above and beyond the age of 50. This is an exciting time for all of us. With the advancement of medical technology and the need to keep our brain and body active, more and more boomers who have been downsized, rightsized or capsized out of their 9-5 jobs are finding their true passion in life, fusing that with their professional mission, and thus fnding true happpiness for the first time in their lives.

I am one of those serial entrepreneurs , and have been for the past 20 years, ever since I left my traditional jobs. Jobs, I thought I needed to have, just like I needed to have my University education. But now I have replaced need with want...what do I really want for the remaining years I have left on Mother Earth.

I hope you will visit this site often and share your own experiences on what it's like to be a boomer in business. Until the next time.......
