Thanks for coming to check out  www.theboomerpreneur.com

Eventually this will be a standalone website especially for all you boomers starting your own business or needing help with an existing one. At the moment this is a special welcome page for you on my main site in order to tell you a little bit about me and how I can be of help to you.

There’s so many websites out there helping the ladies, mumpreneurs, womenpreneurs etc and etc but no-one seems to be be doing much for the boomers, so I decided that I would step in and offer you a helping hand. I’m a boomer too (but shhh don’t tell everyone !) so I really understand your issues.

I’m sure a lot of you have always wanted to have your own business but are struggling to get started; others who perhaps have to work because of pension funds not being as expected or because age makes its tough to get a job (especially true in the UK) or perhaps you want to avoid commuting to work or are caring for older  family members. I’ve been there so I understand your motivations and your challenges only too well.

For the past few years I’ve been working with people from various parts of the world to get them started in business or to grow an existing business. I also teach on the MBA program at one of North America’s top business schools.  Before that I had a successful, international business career. Why did I give it up you wonder. Well…  I have an elderly, widowed mum living in Europe and I need to combine extended periods of time with her and earning a living – the corporate world unfortunately does not make this possible.  So… that’s why this on-line biz of mine exists .. I can live in Canada but spend long chunks of time with my lovely mum.  (You can meet her here if you’re curious, www.millyleonara.com. I set the website up to try to sell her book of beautiful poetry.) So you see why I said I can relate to the situation you’re in. 

You can read a lot more about me here. But …..don’t go yet… read through the following information about the services I’m able to provide:

Generating business ideas – if you need to start your own business but are struggling to come up with ideas – I can help.

Evaluating business ideas – having a great business idea is one thing but you need to find out if there is a market for your product or service and if the business will be financially viable. We can work on these things together or I can do the evaluation for you. To be honest – it’s a lot cheaper for you if we do it together plus you’ll really feel like you own your project.

Planning a business – I’m not just talking business plans here – which you’ll need if you want to get a bank loan or raise venture capital (and I’ll gladly take you through all the stages of producing one if you need this) – I’m also talking about setting yourself a road map to see all the steps you need to go through to make your business a reality.

Running a business – this is the practical stuff : legal and regulatory things, accounting, marketing, hiring staff, using virtual assistants, managing clients, getting paid. It’s also the mindset stuff – keeping motivated, learning from mistakes, organising your time, avoiding procrastination etc.

Business advice services – you can buy blocks of time so that whenever you want advice or an opinion all you need to do is send off an email and you get an answer. This can save you loads of time and you avoid making costly mistakes.

Coaching – coaching comes in various forms – you can buy blocks of hours; a coaching breakthrough package; a virtual one-on-one coaching day…whatever best meets your needs and your budget.

Helping you with Social Media – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn ….. all vital if you’re running an on-line business and a really smart move if you have an off line business. They’re so easy to use and really make your business fly. After all – how did YOU find me ?  Bet it was via the internet.

Marketing – I’m awesome at helping you with low and no cost marketing strategies both on and off line. I had to get this business up and running with minimum dollars so bootstrapping is now second nature to me.

Getting to grips with technology – this is all the website, WordPress, newsletters, shopping cart, audio, video stuff that maybe for many of you will be a challenge but trust me. If I can master it all then you certainly can!

Ready to launch business packages – I’ve prepared some ready made packages for coaches, service professionals, producers of information products and off-line businesses. These packages include domain name & hosting; basic website using WordPress; set up on Facebook, Twitter; a shopping cart and the other things you need to be able to make your internet debut.

Resources – books and courses – I’ve put together a  list of products, books and services that I use that I know will be of help to you in your business ventures.

Do check out the services I offer and if you need help don’t be shy – just send a me a message telling me what you need – I’ll almost certainly get back to you the same day.
