New! Encore Programs: Entrepreneurship for Business Owners 50yrs+

The Encore Programs are created especially for those seeking a second or lifestyle career at age 50+. Instead of leaving work behind, many are finding that starting a business or scaling their existing business provides an exciting new chapter to their lives. Encore Programs meet bi-weekly on Thursdays and alternates between free discussion sessions ("What's Your Next") and kick-starter sessions that provide a hands-on approach to addressing pertinent business ownership issues ("Encore Career Toolbox").


Encore Series: Encore Career Toolbox (hands-on approach):

Being a business owner when you are 50+ can seem a bit overwhelming in our ever changing business environment. From understanding how to improve your networking skills, to highlighting the value proposition of your product/service in 2018, to generating referrals through social media, to establishing yourself on LinkedIn, the Encore Career Toolbox provides a hands-on approach to make your transition a smooth one.

March Topic:  Franchising as a Lifestyle Career

Facilitator: Mark Roger, Center Director


In March, we discuss the variations in business ownership that
create a lifestyle career and how that impacts the business owner.
Time will be spent looking at why the franchise business model
successfully provides a lifestyle career and how to incorporate
those principles into starting or scaling your own business. This
Encore Career Toolbox session will help you not only identify your
own personal and career priorities but will also assist you in
creating a strategy to reach those goals.


We hope you enjoyed the free discussion session on this topic.
