When starting a business after 50 we often spend a lot of time and emotional energy worrying about what we need to learn and all of the things that we don’t know yet.
These are typically the ‘tech and social media’ tools we’ll need to use in business.
What happens then is we get tunnel vision and focus solely on the ‘TECH STUFF’ - believing that it’s the one and only thing - that we forget to stop and think about what we DO KNOW and what WE ARE bringing to the table.
Yes, technology is important and you do have to embrace it. That’s not the question.
The point is we need a lot of skills to be successful and, as women over 50, we have some seriously badass skills that you may not even realize you have - that are super important in starting a successful business.
These are old-school skills.
And, never underestimate the power of a good old-school skill.
In this FB Live I talk about the top 3 old-school skills I know you have as a woman over 50 and that you should keep in mind as you’re starting your business.
While they might be ‘old school they’re vital skills that the younger set simply do not have. That means you have a HUGE advantage when starting a business.
Think about this: These old-school skills were earned and learned and internalized over decades. Technology and time have changed things so the younger set simply never had the need or opportunity to learn these skills.
But, boy oh boy, do they pay off.
