Delaying Retirement? Consider Starting Your Own Business

The current downturn in the economy has led to increasing concerns amongst employees about job security, and the future of their finances. The continuing troubles in the stock market, as well as the massive governmental bank bailouts are some of the concerns on peoples' minds as they plan for their own futures. With uncertainty being the only thing that's certain, those that were looking to retire in the near future are rethinking their plans.

In fact, one in five bosses of small and medium sized firms are choosing to delay planned retirement, a new survey by Clifton Asset Management shows. With 62 per cent of those surveyed saying their retirement is further down the road than it was a year ago, it doesn't look like people are willing to give up their jobs just yet. The survey also shows that 18 per cent of respondents now have no plans to retire! This notion of delaying retirement may come as a disappointment for those looking to spend more time with family and friends, have a flexible lifestyle and be able to make decisions for themselves instead of having to answer to a boss. However, the solution may not necessarily involve having to keep your current job. Instead, you can opt to invest in the franchise of your choice, and start a business of your own! By choosing to become a franchisee, you can be your own boss and reap the profits of your hard work. Instead of having to work for someone else, you can be sure that what you put into it, you will get back. You can apply the knowledge you've gained through past work experience and use it to the benefit of your new business. Also, a home based or part time franchise option will allow would-be retirees to gain the time to spend with loved ones, pursue hobbies and passion that have been on the back burner for years and keep a flexible schedule. Investing in a franchise could be the solution to delaying retirement without having to keep up the grueling pace of your current work situation.
