A growing number of workers age 50-plus are turning interests, hobbies or skills into a small business.  Whether you are interested in starting a small business right away or are intending to wait until after retirement, now is the time to explore the possibilities.

Whether your target market is global or just your neighborhood, the SBA and its Resource Partners can help at every stage of turning your entrepreneurial dream into a thriving business.

The challenges of starting a business later in life aren’t much different than at any other time. But, the experience and expertise that more experienced professionals bring to the table provide opportunities like never before.

Summer of Encore Mentoring

It’s official – June 1 begins the Summer of Encore Mentoring. Encore entrepreneurs over the age of 50 are one of the fastest growing groups of business owners.  If you are an individual age 50+, then entrepreneurship can offer an opportunity for you to use your knowledge, passion, life and professional experience toward creating a small business.

FIFTY IS THE NEW 30

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/09/boomers-who-start-businesses_n_1185394.html

Rather than the dominion of the young, innovation is a product of young minds, and the baby boom generation has that to spare. “Fifty is the new 30,” says Rieva Lesonsky, founder and CEO of GrowBiz Media and a member of the HuffPost Small Business Board of Directors. “Boomers don’t feel or act their chronological age. We have a lot of good years ahead of us, and we don’t want to sit idly on the sidelines. We’d be bored — and many of us would simply run out of money.”

“Part of the baby boomer mentality is to think younger and break out of the box as much as possible,” says Steve Strauss, columnist, author of “The Small Business Bible” and also a member of the HuffPost Small Business Board of Directors. “People are living longer and healthier. I’m not surprised that boomers are changing the way we look at retirement.”

The increase of boomer startups, according to Lesonsky, has been fueled by the recession, which has created a number of “reluctant entrepreneurs.” “Many boomers lost their jobs in the recession,” she explains. “While hiring is picking up again, it’s not likely boomers are going to get hired. Due to their experience and age, they simply cost employers more to hire, both from a salary and cost-of-benefits perspective.”

https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/245366

The Kaufmann Foundation reveals some interesting details about boomers as entrepreneurs and why they are winning the game. There’s a 35 percent chance that an older business owner started the business he or she currently manages. In 1996, 14 percent of entrepreneurs were older than 55, but in 2014 that was true of 23 percent of entrepreneurs. Boomers are the wealthiest living generation, and since 1992 every year more and more people are working past the age of 65.

Plus, Kaufmann showcases that a lot of boomers choose entrepreneurship for lifestyle reasons. Maybe they’re passionate about a certain industry, want to supplement their income, or just simply work less than they did previously. Fewer boomers pursue entrepreneurial ventures to “change the world,” as compared to millennials, which may give them a sharper edge.

The world may be changing, but millennials might not be leading the pack as some might imagine. The numbers don’t lie – it is never too late to start over.

Business Alabama Features Carts Blanche’s Business Opportunities in January Issue

By , January 24, 2014 2:02 pm

Stores on Wheels

Annette Nolan expects to be a game changer in the set-in-its-ways, $42 billion vending industry. What she has in mind are retail stores that travel — as far as Moscow. Business Alabama features Carts Blanche’s Business opportunities in January Issue.

http://www.businessalabama.com/Business-Alabama/January-2014/Stores-on-Wheels/

text by Emmett Burnett • photos by Todd Douglas
Annette Nolan “saw a need to take the product to people, rather than people to the product” and developed VendaCarts, like the one opposite.Annette Nolan “saw a need to take the product to people, rather than people to the product” and developed VendaCarts, like the one opposite.

Mobile’s Carts Blanche LLC markets and sells vending machines, sort of, but not quite. Because referring to Carts Blanche’s ‘VendaCarts’ as just a vending machine is like referring to Godzilla as just a lizard. Carts Blanche may change the way we insert quarters.

And for Annette Nolan, it may have changed her life.

From an office in downtown Mobile, she runs a game-changing empire in the vending industry, whether they want it or not. Carts Blanche produces colossal “VendaCarts” that can house a small grocery store, cater an army, set up automated banking in a pasture, erect video arcades on wheels and more. But for the CEO, as with any business owner, there were initial obstacles.

Hers included fibromyalgia, which forced her to choose between working for the short-term and possibly never again, or putting her business dream on hold while she recovered. She chose the latter, taking six years away from her fledgling enterprise, but using the time to broaden her product research.

Back on the job since 2007, she has used what she learned to develop an even stronger product line.

“We don’t face problems, we face challenges,” says Nolan, knowing that her company and its products are firmly on the move.

“We have two VendaCarts in Moscow,” she says, “and one operated by Airbus.”

So what is her product, the VendaCarts that are now at work here and abroad?

Basically, it is the marriage of mobile real estate with self-serve robotic equipment and billboard advertising.

Target customers include construction companies, vending operators, corporations, commercial food services, caterers, entrepreneurs, marketing and promotional companies, persons with disabilities, veterans and retirees interested in part-time or full-time retirement careers. Beyond traditional uses, Nolan’s carts also can fill a need during disaster relief operations, on military sites and during shutdowns.

Nolan is a trailblazer in an industry that doesn’t always welcome blazed trails. “The $42 billion industry has been around for over a century,” she notes. But the vending stations have been almost as immobile as brick-and-mortar stores — small upright boxes that demand an electrical outlet and always seem to prefer correct change.

“We will change that,” says Nolan. “We are the only company with this size capability and products that can be moved anywhere.” VendaCarts are not slaves to plugs. A power cord should be an electricity source, she contends, not a tether.

According to company brochures, “Once on location, both sides of the trailer are raised to create awnings, exposing the ready to operate self-service food and beverage vending business. The automated machines create a quick way to deliver food to more customers in a shorter timeframe. Pre-packaged foods and beverages ensure healthier and safer products for the customer.”

With three sizes: 16, 20 and 24 feet, VendaCarts are about the size of a small garage.  Custom designed to client specifications, the units are tailored for food sales/catering kiosks, arcade games, banking, business promotions and sales or some other customer request. It can be set up in a parking lot, at a county fair, sports venue or birthday party — just about anywhere accessible by road.

“The beauty of this system is that the operator can set up, stock and walk away. The VendaCart takes it from there,” says Nolan. “The onboard computer will send the operator a text message when supplies are low.”

Trailers with a price range starting at a $27,500 basic model to $40,000 deluxe are available to plug into a power supply or with onboard electrical generators. Depending on customer needs, VendaCarts offer refrigeration, ATM machines, Wi-Fi, Facebook and Twitter capabilities. Pop up the optional decorative awnings and you have a portable home on the range that vends food in as little as 15 seconds.

Getting VendaCarts to customers is not the problem. Getting VendaCarts to Nolan was.

“I talked to hundreds of trailer manufacturers before finding mine,” she says. “Most fabricators did not want to deviate from their designs. If they made horse, NASCAR or motorcycle trailers, that’s what they wanted to sell me. I couldn’t go to my competition for help. I was afraid they would steal my idea.” And funding sources demanded more than an idea, they wanted a prototype. She delivered.

It was too important not to — an idea that’s been germinating since her very first job, operating a flower shop in Mount Vernon. Not long after, she moved into a pushcart and kiosk business and realized that the products available weren’t meeting all the needs.

“I saw a need for more,” says Nolan. “First, I wanted vending machines more accessible by people with disabilities. Second, I saw a need to take the product to people, rather than people to the product.”

“I saw a huge demand and opportunity to take vending to the masses,” says Nolan. “We are actively partnering with other industry companies in the promotion, sales and leasing of VendaCarts.”

Nolan and business partner Kathy Lovitt acknowledge that they are marketing a new concept in an industry that doesn’t accept new ideas quickly.

But, “You cannot keep Annette down,” says Lovitt. “She has endless positive energy.”

“If the industry will embrace this new concept, we will see great things happening,” Lovitt adds. “And we are getting our word out with social media and marketing.”

And once the order comes, VendaWorks can deliver within six to eight weeks — maybe a trifle longer in spring when the outdoor event marketplace demands more equipment.

2014 What’s In and What’s Out Food Service Industry – Business Opportunities

Carts Blanche, VendaCarts  Mobile Pop Up Café hits the rolling restaurant scene on the streets of any city.

Technomic trends for 2014 highlights what the customer wants and doesn’t want.  Based on convenience store industry vending operators, vending machine manufactures and Carts Blanche customers can jump on board. Check it out to update your 2014 plans to serve more customers with better selections, make higher profits and most of all enjoy what you do.

CHICAGO – Technomic Inc. released its forecast for the top 10 trends that are likely to influence the restaurant and foodservice industries in 2014.

These predictions are based on site visits evaluating the restaurant scene in cities across the United States; interviews and surveys of operators, chefs and consumers; qualitative data from the researcher’s Digital Resource Library; and quantitative data from its MenuMonitor database.

The 2014 trends most relevant to the convenience store industry include:

  • Creamy, cheesy, high-fat goodness – Although there is a real demand for healthier eating, there is also a backlash, and there will likely be more items such as cheese melts, fried snacks and pasta with creamy sauces. However, super-indulgent limited items such as Wendy’s nine-patty burger are designed to gain social media buzz, not sales.
  • Day for night – Consumers are less likely to eat three standard meals per day and will eat snacks, skip meals, eat breakfast for dinner and more. More restaurants are introducing unusual breakfast items that are available all day, and some are promoting late-night breakfast menus, often associated with 24-hour drive-thrus.
  • Every daypart is a snack daypart – As the snacking lifestyle becomes mainstream, diners are less interested in specific snack menus. Millennials, in particular, see dollar and dollar-plus menus as snack menus. Limited-service restaurants are paying more attention to snack-size handhelds and car-friendly packaging, and offering more grab-and-go or market-style items. Full-service restaurants are catering to the snacking-and-sharing mentality by offering pairings, trios and flights from all parts of the menu.
  • For fast service, bring your own device – All foodservice segments are using technology for faster, more accurate ordering. The industry will primarily see a bring-your-own-device system of advance ordering and inside-the-outlet ordering for restaurants.
  • Everything is political – Some operators saw customer backlash after expressing views related to Obamacare and other hot-button issues, while others saw increased traffic based on their expressed views. Consumers are increasingly aware that the personal is political. Therefore, the choices of the restaurants they patronize have consequences. As a result, consumers will consciously or unconsciously gravitate toward retailers that share their world view, and some outlets will promote this cultural identification.

Technomic’s full 2014 trend forecast is available here on its website.
