Format: Paperback
Entrepreneur Robert W. Bly knows what it takes to start a business after age 50 --and--more importantly--keep it running. As he says in the opening chapter, "These are not get-rich-quick schemes but real businesses that will require hard work, planning and organization to make them successful. To help you, this book provides ideas about how to set up your business, organize your home office, market your services, and operate as a virtual company." (Page 10)

This book covers eight different businesses including: Freelancing, Consulting, Coaching, eBay, Internet Marketing, Close-Outs, Import/ Export, and Real Estate. Each chapter includes excellent and detailed action items so you do more than read a well-crafted book. You can take action and achieve your goals.

I've read a number of Bly's books and this one is excellent. I recommend it.

Bob Bly delivered yet another how-to book for entrepreneurs, and for those who would like to be, this time directed at the Baby Boomers specifically. Bob addresses the many issues faced by older folks looking to start their own businesses with the perspective of someone who has done exactly that many times over. Great advice from prolific author and over-50 entrepreneur Bob Bly.

This book reiterates what other books have said about separating your work space from other rooms and only do work in that room. It was good advice because this really works. I still need to get some other rooms in order, especially the work shop that all the house junk seems to be stored in. A lot of good points to starting a successful business know matter what your age.
