“Everybody is doin’ a brand new dance, now,
I know you’ll get to like it if you give it a chance now”
— Carole King/Gerry Goffin: “The Locomotion”
For those of us over 50, that new dance is Entrepreneurship; and it’s a dicey new dance for us if we’ve spent most of our careers in the predictable, stable and familiar corporate environment. Even if we have attained senior management ranks, the prospect of taking a chance on our own venture, depending entirely on ourselves, and forging into unknown territory is uncomfortable at best.
