US baby boomers find unique springboard to new careers - Hindustan Times

A Merrill Lynch survey last year found that 77 percent of more than 3,400 baby boomers polled planned to work in some capacity in their retirement, with second careers in the mix for some, including 13 percent who intended to start their own businesses. Barbara Harris launched a new career as a fashion designer in her mid-50s with the aid of an early retirement package from her years as a corporate manager with General Electric and elsewhere. Pursuing a long-held ambition, she filled a notebook with sketches, spent four months traveling around to contract houses that could make the pieces and started her business in Connecticut. Today, she runs the growing operation out of New York's Garment District, drawing on ideas from her corporate background in designing the elegant, upscale clothing line called Multi by Bree. "To be able to take these ideas from your head to a paper to a garment, and to see that garment sell in the marketplace, is absolutely exhilarating," Harris said.
