I am a boomer(August 13,1948) and have always had alot of fun in business so I never stopped.
One of my companies that I play an active roll in is www.islandstuffusacorp.com We manufacture both Women"s,Men"s and Kids clothing out of China and our contacts there are fantastic(Been going there for over 4 years).One of our customers is Walmart and we are now looking to expand our business with other major retailers(Target,K mart,JC Pennys,etc.plus also The Drug Chains like Walgreens,CVS and Rite aid.
There is alot of money to be made and I am looking for the proper contacts into these type of companies.
I can be reached at 305-305-5926 or my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

I`m 56 and have been in the search for a good business idea. Sounds easy, right? No way I`m 16 months into my search, have looked into more than 26 buisnesses including one franchise. I hate the franchise concept. Not for me, at least as a buyer.
I have offered to come up with the money (I`m not Angel Investor). Number one condition is I work were I put my money, full time. No one has come up to me and asked me to sign a NDA to see if I`m willing to do the business with them.
So I think this idea of Start Up Nation of having baby boomers as main characters is great and I suggest it should be used as a link between people with "the idea" and people who have the money and will to put ALL their time to work in whatever that idea/ project may be.
For the time being I was offered an opportunity in Mexico were I`ll be heading in 4 weeks.
Good idea from Start Up nation!!!!!
