Are you creative, passionate, motivated, retired or close to it? Geelong Seniorpreneurs is a must. Meet a group of like-minded people who are coming together to connect, network, problem solve and inspire. Founder, Bernard Kelly, who is a serial entrepreneur and author of ‘Exciting, Dynamic, Geelong!’ believes there are many baby boomers out there, who aren’t ready for retirement, who should tap in to this resource. Becoming a senior entrepreneur is a way of stimulating one’s creativity while generating a handy cash flow.
The group met for the first time on that sizzling Friday in January. The meeting format was well structured with something for everyone. There were introductions and sharing. Geelong Seniorpreneurs adopts the proven Action Learning format when members speak to the issues they are facing, and other members offer solutions. The first guest speaker was video whizz, Zoe Hollingsworth of Zebrafish Digital. Her topic was how to ‘Create Simple Video Clips to Enhance Your Marketing’. There was a sharing of resources and individuals are encouraged to team up as Mentor/Mentees. I came away with lots of great ideas and feeling very inspired.
Meetings are the first Friday of the month at 2pm at Netgain, 63 Thompson St. Belmont. To find out more, join the facebook group @geelong seniorpreneurs or give Bernard a call on 0414 778 518.
