Here’s How to Beat Age Bias

Unemployment, underemployment, age bias…that’s what’s happening to the over 50 crowd these days. They have a 50% chance of being forced into retirement, and landing a job that pays more than your last one gets less and less common.

One career path many Executive members are pursuing to push aside age bias is franchise ownership. It’s not all burgers and fries! (though that does pay very well) There are two basic models and some examples:

  • Service based: B2B or B2C — home improvement, professional services, personal services
  • Facility based: health & wellness, beauty, children

Each year, more and more ExecuNet members are pursuing franchising ownership with our Franchise Consultant Pete Gilfillan. Pete is like a real estate agent, but for franchises. He matches people with the franchise that’s right for them. Pete works with you to determine which franchise is the best fit for your lifestyle and goals so that you have the freedom and security you deserve.

The best part… No one cares how old you are.
