AARP to host a free business seminar along with SBA

Everyone dreams of becoming their own boss and not having to report to anyone. Looks like this dream won't take so long to become true because the Association of American Retired Persons (AARP) and the Small Business Administration might have come up with a solution to bring this fantasy to reality. To know more about what they have in store for entrepreneurs, you must pay a visit to the free seminar which is being hosted by these two organizations. It is going to take place from 9 a.m to noon on Saturday at the Radisson Hotel Whittier, 7320 Greenleaf Ave. and they will brief about how to grow or start your own business.

The AARP state director Katie Hirning recently made a statement in a press release that “AARP knows that many older Americans pursue entrepreneurship as a way to generate income and strengthen financial security. And for many of these workers, it is also a way to turn a hobby or passion into a paycheck.” April is known as the mentor month and this explains why the two organizations have come together. The two want to increase their collective efforts to provide entrepreneurs with the resources they require to setup their own businesses. However this is for entrepreneurs and small business owners age 50 and older. The focus here is primarily on the Hispanic entrepreneurs since this particular demographic section has has been opening businesses at a rate three times faster than the national average.

Charee Gillins, the AARP associate state director of communications, recently stated that “What we’ve learned is that more and more baby boomers are becoming their own bosses, and are well-positioned to start their own businesses because of their knowledge, experience and savings gained from their careers.”

There was an AARP survey in 2013 which found out that small business owners were more likely to increase their success rates if they received better counselling. So this seminra hosted by AARP and the Small Business Administration will prove to be very beneficial as it is will have five minute sessions from mentors and entrepreneurs who will share information and these speakers will also be making presentations on social media, the latest technology and writing a business plan.
