Having been "laid off" at 50+ years of age like so many other boomers, I entered the job market and watched for two years as younger, less experienced applicants filled open positions I could do in my sleep.
Last month, the Angel of Obvious appeared and smacked me up side the head. The angel told me to forget about working for the man because those days are long-gone. "Hire yourself." she said. "Do what you love." she said. "Go forth and share your journey with other boomers so they might do the same." she said.
"I don't have a crystal ball." I replied. "Where do I begin?" I asked.
"Make one." she said.
Are you an out-of-work Boomer? If you are anything like I was, you probably have time on your hands right now so you may as well add your 2¢ as I report on the weaning process from 40 years of working for the man, to picking my passion and hiring myself... win or lose.
How long have YOU been looking for work?
