I was forced to start working for myself through redundancy back in 2001 when I was almost 53 years old. I struggled for a couple of years then got established doing what I am doing now (web design and software sales). I am now 61 and I do not earn massive amounts of money but I am more financially secure than I have ever been.
I have no problems with this because I did it all on my own and I am really quite chuffed about. I work from home, take my holidays when I want them and spend much more time with ny grandchildren than I would have been able to do if I was still working for the man. For the most part I am very happy doing what I am doing and taking the recompense. ;)
