Career change after 50

Midlife career changes; Now is the time to do life your way!

Are you thinking about a career change after 50? Midlife career changes are never easy and require some flexibility on your part. At this stage in life your choices matter just as much as they did when you where young, if not even more…

It is important to keep your retirement in mind when considering a midlife career change.

Maybe your current career did not bring you the fulfillment you’d hoped for, or maybe your quest ended up here at my site because your career change after 50 was in fact involuntary.

Whatever the reason for being here may be, your quest needs an outcome… and if it is up to me… A positive outcome!

I am a Career-and Small Business Coach and my goal is to provide you with great information about midlife career changes and give you a few options which in my opinion are worth taking notice of.

Let’s talk about retirement for a while. In my eyes retirement is nicely summed up in this acronym:

  • Re-evaluate goals and ambitions
  • Explore interests
  • Tap into (under-recognized?) strengths
  • Invite challenge
  • Revel in freedom
  • Enjoy life... your way!

Please have a look at this short video about Phil. He is an army retiree and according to his superior officers “not the sharpest pencil in the box”.

He was able to build a successful website anyway with Site Build It! about his hobby.

What I am thinking is: if he could do it… Imagine what you could do?

With SBI’s build in research tools you’ll take a closer look at your hobby or interest or something you’ll find interesting to write about and see if it is profitable to build a website about.

This can be any topic. You don’t even have to be smart with computers… it only takes basic computer skills.

Do you want some more examples? Sure, there are many topics people from all over the world have written websites about with SBI. They now have profitable sites about subjects they love, they stay connected to the community and the best thing… They don’t have to worry about having enough money for retirement.

Topics people have SBI websites about:

-Legal downloading

-Amateur radio broadcasting

-Balloon decorating

-Arts and Crafts

-Kids birthday parties

-Career Coaching

-How to become a stewardess


And the list goes on and on. Real people make money with this. Writing about topics they know and love.

Now is the time you take a closer look at Site Build It! And decide for yourself that your career change after 50 is going to be a success. I tell you it really can be with SBI!

We all have goals and dreams, but day-to-day life gets in the way. We keep pushing them to "tomorrow." It's time for action.

This site was really helpful when I was looking for small business ideas. I learned that my passion for cars can be turned into a profit. I have my own car business now and the goal setting techniques I learned here I still apply daily. Keep up the good work!

I really like your approach on discussing small business ideas. Most sites about business ideas have so much hype and lack any credibility. The value of your site is your easy and realistic approach. It really shows you are a small business coach in the real world. Thanks to your recommendations I started my very own jewelry web business. Doing what I love is great! Thanks again Onno.
