Entrepreneurship Many older adults would prefer to be engaged in their own business. Some have been or still are successful entrepreneurs and business owners, and they may want to explore a new kind of entrepreneurial endeavor that’s more in tune with an inner desire they have always felt strongly about but never pursued. Others have similar desires but never owned a business, and now, with the help of savings or investments they have accumulated, are ready to take the plunge. And then there are the risk-takers. These folks have typically always been risk-takers, starting businesses throughout the course of their adult lives that may have succeeded temporarily or failed miserably. They are simply unable to work for others and will doggedly pursue the next entrepreneurial adventure with rigor.
