I think it is wonderful that someone should ask what type of business or venture one should go into as a boomer! Attention All Boomers - You Are Not Dead Yet! - the available enterprises and undertakings that a Boomer can start with is as broad a subject as your mind will carry you! Do something that you love to do - If you love to do or create something - there is no doubt that there will be plenty of boomers or others out that would love to have your product or service.
I have a friend that loves to make pillows - she sells hundreds of them on line - she has turned that into a Veterans Support Program - because she wanted a way to help Vets make additional money - she started a Co-Op that allows the Vets on disability to work and to participate in the profits from making her pillows and other items. She is now a very successful and fulfilled person - because she knew how to make a pillow, loved what she was doing and wanted to help Vietnam Era Vets that she had volunteered to assist.
The pillows are not solar powered, so I do not know if they would meet Solarboy`s criteria, but then how many of us have a solar powered life style.
I love to talk to people about their lives - I started documenting them and now produce others life stories and legacies that they can share with their loved one`s or the world if they so desire. So go out there and do something that you have a passion for, a love for and something that you want to share with the world.

About debt recovery - there are two distinct types of agencies that can assist you. Commercial and Personal - very different breeds of collection and laws that provide restrictions - but I am not an Attorney
The commercial Debt Recovery Buisiness is great - they work for your company on a case by case basis - if they get results they keep their percentage of the recovered amount and some are quite aggressive. The more reliable one`s will allow you to specify the aggressivness. If you want them to come down hard and collect the funds with threat of lawsuit or worse, they will - if you are interested in retaining the client then a softer approach is used (in the beginning).
You can lose clients by being too aggressive and you should always attempt to work out a debt recovery solution yourself - initially. If you do not succeed and the chump is trying to get away with your money and it appears has no intention of paying - I would call in the pros.
I sold commercial debt recovery for a time about 7 years ago, when I wanted to hone up on my telephone sales skills. Not a career for me but was a great wake up call and provided me with a lot of respect for an industry with a really lousy public image. They get the job done and you get at least a portion of your just due.
What an eye opener. I had not heard of a virtual assistant prior to reading the thread on SUN! I had some people that thought I was way out there when I made my plans to use an independent percent/fee based HR firm to handle all of payroll and benefits. I am presntly making all of my Grand Opening plans so look forward to doingmore research and using the right combination of VA as well as other staff.
I am certain that there are some horro stories out there as well and your article was a great help in pointing out some of the potential pitfalls to avoid as well.
Having jumped into the forum quite late and going back and reading the entire thread - I would only wish to have such great talent and wisdom available to any business venture that is decided upon.
What great ideas - I can certainly see this as an opportunity for many potential businesses.
I am going to stay with this.
