Boomers. Yeah you.
Boomers, gather round. Button up your cardigans. Put your ears on the radio. Ready?
WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!!!
If you've thought about starting your own gig, now is the time. Not later. Now. We need you and your skills out here. Get out there and fix something. I don't want to meet you for the first time on the obituary page. I want to first learn about you as you're out kicking ass in some creative and helpful way.
There has never been a moment in human history where innovation and design improvements have been needed more. There have never been this many tools available to execute great solutions.
Life is not a rehearsal. Put some wheels on it, friend.
The world needs your help. You've got the skills. You've got the understanding. Fix something. Fast! Faster!!
Start your own enterprise. Start a non-profit. Start a for-profit. Become a social entrepreneur. Become a risk taker and a change agent. Start it up on the side. Start it up with a friend. Start it up with partners in town or partners oceans away. There is no perfect way. There is no single ideal organization model. Put together something that works for you.
Is it easy? Of course not. But you're got all that boomer imagination sitting around mostly unemployed. You need to plan well, execute even better, then get out there and change the world.
C'mon. There is a lot of work to be done. Your ability to execute your own solutions and create your own brands has never, ever been better. You've got a ton of life skills to build from. Put them to work.
You want more security? Make your own. You want a more fulfilling life? Don't wait. Do it yourself.
Boomers! Get busy, damn it. Don't make me use more superlatives.
Fire up you impact on the world before your chance to change the world passes.
