Today, the 50+ are working beyond traditional retirement age and choosing to stay active and engaged in the workforce.  With years of valuable work experience, maturity, and plenty of energy at their disposal, older workers are increasingly finding financial and personal fulfillment in running their own small businesses.  That’s why AARP and the Small Business Administration launched a strategic alliance to provide Americans over the age of 50 with real-world, actionable information they need to start and grow small businesses.
