Self-employed in old age: good reasons for a career change
Statistically, more than one third of all new start-ups are made by entrepreneurs who have already reached 45 years of age. The proportion of founders over the age of 65 is also growing. Among other things, an improved health awareness and higher living standards are responsible for this demographic development compared to a few decades ago. Many people, after working for a long time in dependent employment, finally want to realize themselves and put their long-term goals into practice with an independent career - such as a franchise real estate broker. Also, to increase one's income in the second half of life, self-employment is often seen as a welcome opportunity. Anyone who has been out of work for a longer period of time, for example after a sabbatical, a longer stay abroad or a parental leave, can seize the opportunity to take the next step for their own professional development and become Engel & Völkers franchisees.
