Older Workers, Believe in New Entrepreneurship

The Employment Guide conducted an Older Workers Job Fair series over the course of the past 2 months. After wrapping things up here in Orlando on October 4th, I haven’t reflected much on the Older Worker Employment situation. Being a millennial, I can easily relate to what is going on with my generation. Sometimes it is easy to lose focus on other subjects at hand. In the aftermath of the job series that came through Valencia Community College last month, I received a lot of input into the struggles of finding a new job and even starting a new career for both college students and older and experienced workers.

In the coming weeks, I will do my best to get to everyone’s concerns, questions and common obstacles that you are facing.

I’d like to end today with an uplifting story of entrepreneurship. Jack Weil of Denver, CO is an exceptional story. He has been running his Western Ware store, Rockmount Ranch Wear, for the past 60 years. This is an awesome feat in itself. Now add to the fact that good ol Jack is 106 years old!! He is to be believed the oldest CEO in the US and probably the world.

Read the full story over at INC Magazine online.

Hope this uplifts you and gives you the strength to believe that anything is possible through perseverance, strong objectives and a willingness to dream and believe.

Happy hunting Orlando.
