As more and more boomers near retirement age, they are forced to deal with the gap between what they've saved and the cost of living. Many people have no choice but to put off retirement and go back to work. One common reaction has been to start up a business in the hopes of bridging this gap with some extra income. This is actually becoming an increasingly common option as many boomers struggle to make up for losses in the stock market. Start ups offer the chance to inject some creativity into your job and also allow a great deal of freedom. Of course there are risks involved in starting your own company so be sure to do your homework before diving in.
