Work for Yourself@50+

A careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks of working for yourself
Exercises to help develop the self-employment idea
A realistic overview of what it takes to pursue a self-employment opportunity
Guidance to help avoid pitfalls and scams
Ways to find trustworthy support and services
