An impressive body of scholarly research strongly suggests that people in the second half of life can be as creative, innovative, and entrepreneurial as their younger peers, if not more so. Drawing on a wealth of research and interviews with a wide variety of people in their 50s, 60s, and 70s, Chris will discuss how growing numbers of older Americans are embracing an entrepreneurial mind-set, whether they decide to train for a new career, combine a part-time job with a side gig, or start their own business.
