I am 55 and I am involved with two successful companies even in this bad economy. I am my own boss, make my own hours and make great income. There are some companies that are doing well regardless of this economy. I must say the reason for that is that we offer services and don't sell products. Services are needed by many people in this bad economy. We are here to help people, which should always come first before "money". The "money" comes afterwards, because your main priority is to help people.
