Advances in technology, the professionalisation of the skills base, the economic shake-up that was precipitated by the recession, the desires of many to work in a way that suits them: all of these factors have caused the numbers of self-employed and owner-managers to soar in recent years. Government figures show most of the new companies created in the last decade are micro-businesses.

Demographics, Wealth, Resiliency Add Up To More Over-Fifty Entrepreneurs

Demographics, Wealth, Resiliency Add Up To More Over-Fifty Entrepreneurs | Rise of the Fourth Economy | Scoop.it

What’s a classic profile of an entrepreneur? Smart, prone to risk and under the age of thirty. 

Steve Young of StreetWizeTechnologies personifies some of those qualities, except he’s a 56-year old starting a new business aimed at older motorcycle riders.

Young takes his fiery orange Harley Davidson touring bike out for a spin near his shop in Nashua. Soon he’ll install a product in the bike that you can’t see: a hidden third wheel. 

He and a business partner are marketing what he calls a dual glide conversion kit for a specific type of customer.

Khan Academy’s Challenge to State-Certified Educators

Jason Brunson's insight:

I don't know what Khan's politics are, and I don't care. I don't care what his educational theory is, either. I care about this: he was never formally certified as a teacher. This represents a threat to the public school system like no other in history.

Independent Work Goes Mainstream! (Infographics)

Independent Work Goes Mainstream! (Infographics) | Rise of the Fourth Economy | Scoop.it
The evidence is clear: the independent workforce is growing - and it's good for the economy. This year, independent workers are more satisfied staying independent and continue to make significant contributions to our nation's economic growth. Sometimes it's difficult to see how your day-to-day independent life is shaping the economy. You're actually part of a larger movement of workers across the country leaving "traditional" work, becoming their own bosses, and building new support systems for themselves (like benefits, services, and communities, which is what Freelancers Union is all about). But just in case you needed more evidence that you're not alone, here it is! Last week, the MBO partners, ...
