Whether the casualty of corporate downsizing, tired of working for “the man,” or simply unfulfilled, many employees in mid-life yearn to own their own business, but are hesitant to make the leap. William R. Seagraves, the “Mid-Career Entrepreneur Expert,” assures mid-career employees that they are perfectly positioned to successfully fund and benefit from the American Dream in the just-released small business book – Be Your Best Boss: Reinvent Yourself from Employee to Entrepreneur.
Seagraves, financial consultant and entrepreneur, contends mid- to late-career employees are actually better prepared than 20-somethings to make successful business owners since they possess three unique traits: past work/life experience; accumulated retirement funds; and the ability to plan their business venture with an exit strategy.
Dubbed the “Mid-career Entrepreneur Expert,” Seagraves has helped over 1,500 corporate employees reinvent themselves as entrepreneurs, most of them aged 45 or older. InBe Your Best Boss, he succinctly and expertly addresses common questions and challenges and provides critical information, planning and inspiration to even the most apprehensive individuals. With plentiful real-life client success stories, checklists, worksheets, quizzes, tips, and cautionary tales,Be Your Best Boss helps people determine:
- If they are ready to start a business
- Whether to opt for a Self-Directed 401(k) or other means for funding
- The pros and cons of purchasing a franchise or existing business
- How to make it through the most volatile first six months
