I'm here to help you take your dreams and turn them into reality.
On this website you will find information on how to recession proof your bank account by turning your PINK slip into a RED hot business.
I'm Jean Newell the "Boomerpreneur". I've had many jobs in my 60 plus years, but basically only one career- Real Estate. However, with the decline of the real estate market I knew I had to find another vocation. If you're over 45 you're probably feeling the same way as I did; helpless and hopeless. What do you do with that 25 year experience in an industry that may no longer exist?
Or perhaps you're one of the millions of Baby Boomers or seniors who can't live on a retirement check and you've lost your investments. You now need to find other sources of income. Whatever your circumstances, a part or full-time business may be exactly the solution to your situation. As you'll read further in this site, I have found starting my own business was the perfect scenario for me.
I work closely with Chambers of Commerce, the Women's Business Center, the Florida Small Business Development Centers and other private businesses and organizations to help other unemployed Boomers find a new direction, a new beginning and best of all a new income producing opportunity. My forthcoming book "How To Turn Your Pink Slip into a Red Hot Business" will help the unemployed successfully transition from career employee to entrepreneur. EMAIL me for your FREE sneak preview.

Whatever direction you decide to take just remember there are a lot of people and organizations available to help you.

Jean interviewed by Jim Blasingame "Business Advocate Radio"
Without formal education in business, marketing, finance or manufacturing, I designed and developed my own line of wearable organizers called PUP (personal utility pouch) bags. I then learned the business tips and tricks to successfully market them to online stores, gift catalogs, department store chains and to QVC. If I can make my dreams of a home-based business come true I know you can too.
For the past 2 years I’ve been working with the Small Business Development Center, The Women’s Business Center and NASA helping men and women like you:
■ Find your passion
■ Maximize sales on the internet
■ Network with social media and the press
■ Become the expert in your field
Everyday I receive calls and emails from people who either,
1) Have a great idea for an invention, product or service.
2) They have just gotten a PINK SLIP and are looking for alternative income producing opportunities.

There are many services, organizations and mentors that can help you get started or take an established business to the next level. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to email me. I'd be honored to assist you in your business venture. Best of luck in your new endeavor.
