Women live longer than men FACT. Humans are living the 100-year life FACT. The retirement and pension age have risen FACT. So how are women supposed to financially look after themselves and/or their families when the job for life has gone and the old trajectory of EDUCATION – JOB – RETIRE does not work anymore? Women are now looking at sustaining a career over 50 -60 years from the time they leave college or graduate!
With women’s careers stopping, starting or being put on hold due to a rise in fertility issues, taking time out to get/stay pregnant, maternity leave, raising a family, redundancy and all the ‘isms’ (ageism, sexism and racism) in between impacting on women's career's, it is not only time to rethink what a 60-year career looks like but more importantly how to CREATE one.
For if your career is not progressing fast enough, have taken a wrong turn, need a professional challenge, require flexibility or need a way to bounce back from redundancy and work issues, there is an answer – entrepreneurship.
