As they say, create your own opportunity. Some retirees that I know have put up their own business to manage so they would have an occupation. One is a close friend who rented a place for his bakery. It needed little capital and had it going after a month of preparation. The business was doing good in the first few months until it hit some snags like problems with the employees, handling complaints and other unforeseen business problems. My friend closed shop and advised us of his failure. Come to think of it, a business is to be managed and if you do not have managerial skills then how do you expect it to succeed?
