"Cool" Entrepreneur (Ages 18-28)
These are the up and coming next generation of “hot wires” of Small Business in America, and worldwide.
They are not going to wait on education because they are ahead in their class. In some cases the educators
may tag them as "ADD" or whatever the acronym is for hyperactive. In reality, they are simply itchy to get going,
and they want to do, to act, to make it happen, to let it rip, to be extreme. That's what they are about. Everyone their age, whether guy or gal, are into is fast, electronic, hip, cool, belly buttoned, communicative, tattooed, fleshy, nose earrings, and more. However, in reality, they are no different than the Baby Boomers of the Korean and Vietnam War generations, when they were young. They just have different "platforms" to use for life and business. The new world of platforms can deliver their message in a nano second of who, what, where, when and why. Platforms only imagined twenty years ago like Kindle, Instagram, LinkedIn, twitter, smart phones, iPhones, Androids, Talk Radio, Reality TV, the Internet, YouTube, Facebook, and more now like Amazon and Uber Eats. So, regardless of their style
Cool Entrepreneurs will "make it happen" - just watch!

You will decide how much of a raise you can get, when to take a day off and go have fun, once you decide to Start, Fund and Run your own business.
"Boomer" Entrepreneur (Ages 45-65 Up!)
Have you come to a place in life where you are asking yourself the following question: "How much longer will I be able to work or have to work?" or "Why have I procrastinated about starting my own business?" or "How could I let time slip away without trying to start my own business?" or "Have I wasted my life away, watching TV when I could have started a business?" and "What will I do if we have an economic crisis and I lose part of my income, at my age?"
If you have asked yourself these questions your not alone. Millions of Americans in your age bracket think the same things. So, now that you know you are normal it may be the best time to "take action" and get focused on
that business idea you have been thinking of for years. But don't worry about your age, or education, or that you
are not sure how to finance the business. Instead, use your knowledge and experience to leverage your idea into your
business "competitive advantage" and go start your business, now!
