By the time we retire most of us will have some knowledge and experience that could be put to good use by starting a new business. Each time I've done this in the past I've been able to make a small profit. I never suffered a loss in any of my ventures. Now I'm thinking that I would not mind running a non-profit business when I have pension money to live on. I hope to have plenty of work to keep me busy until I qualify for my pension, but my present self-employment does not involve the excitement and challenge of getting a new business established. I miss those days when my life was 100% involved in marketing my own business. For me it would have to be an Internet business, because I've learned a lot more about marketing since I last created a business website for myself. Have you thought of doing something similar, or have you already started a new business after retirement?
