Combat the Epidemic of Loneliness” with a Late-Life Business!  Hovey Smith, author of Ideas for New Businesses, started Hovey’s Knives of China at age 75, a time in life when most people have quit working. He chose a business that produced a new line of U.S. made knives based on ancient Chinese patterns he could make in an inexpensive shop attached to his house. Starting a low-cost, one-person business can have significant economic potential as well as the opportunities to stay actively involved in the world and meet new people. This is now possible for Baby Boomers, thanks to the Internet's ease of use and global reach. Hovey's book is a guide to getting started.

Reinvent Retirement: The Best is Yet to Come for Boomer Men!  Just like women, men are living decades longer — and the old model of retirement doesn’t apply. Retirement and aging expert Thelma Reese says men’s identities have traditionally been so tied to what they did for a living, that they lost their sense of self once they stopped working. This has often led to depression, boredom, marital strife and ill health. "Men deserve a better road map for navigating the rest of the journey — and getting the most out of this next phase of their lives." Thelma Reese, co-author of The New Senior Man: Exploring New Horizons, New Opportunities, offers inspiring stories of men from all walks of life who are redefining retirement. www.ElderChicks.com
