Part One of  series of interviews about setting up a business over 50..

In this video interview with midlife business coach Karen Knott, we discuss the motivation of women over 50 setting up first time businesses, and how easy it is to start on the route to self-employment. We discuss technology and the flexibility that can bring to a business start up as well as the life changes that prompt women to become first time entrepreneurs.

Can you find your purpose, and make a difference – and an income- by becoming self-employed or setting up a business?

Karen discusses the importance of the clarity of your business vision – and having a plan!

    I enjoyed Karen’s talk (other than the odd interference) and especially when she talks on the different motivation of mid-life women. I look forward to part two of her talk.

      Thank you Irene. Our motivation is different because WE are different and it’s is all part of the natural reassessment, growth & evolution we go through at mid-life. Such a dynamic time of life!

    really interesting interview. I do feel women in this age range now have more confidence having worked in the changing workplace. Though they may not know what they want exactly they know they want change and are prepared to find something that will facilitate that change and provide a difference for their future.

      Thanks Gill – yes, I think things are definitely changing and women 50+ are responding to these changes in a very positive way & embracing the opportunity to create a more flexible & fulfilling way of living and working.
