Many of you will have noticed that job opportunities for mature, experienced people are diminishing. Most of us are not retiring. Around 57% of 50-59 year olds are forced out of their jobs. The reason is likely to be too many birthdays, rather than anything else.

Yet, while your former employer might think you’re too old to embrace change, the irony is that over-50s are the new business start-up generation. Around 14,000 of us have set up our own businesses in the last four years – triple the number started by those aged 18 to 24.
