Here it is by the numbers: As many as 1 million "seniorpreneurs" - men
and women between age 55 and 64 - may be starting up each year, reports
the University of North Florida (May 2007). Plus, AARP reports that as
many as 40% of American entrepreneurs are over 50. Business start-ups by
men and women age 55 or older increased by 35% between 2001 and 2005.
More telling, these businesses now represent 28.7% of all self-employed
workers. That's the highest percentage among all age groups.

The Retirement Myth - Life After 65 - Senior Entrepreneurs - Small Business Owners and Retirement
October 2007 | Inc. Magazine | By Angus Loten. Older
entrepreneurs like Gable -- along with the baby boomer generation not
too far behind -- are rewriting the rules of retirement. Today,
small-business owners and their employees are living longer, healthier,
and more productive lives than ever before. Given these demographic
shifts, it's not surprising that people around the world are starting to
have second thoughts about retirement.
