Retiree Franchise Opportunities
Retiring may sound like a welcome respite in the short term, but many retirees complain of boredom after the initial excitement of not having to work wears off. A recent AARP study found that 76% of retirees work post-retirement because they need the money, while an equal number reported they worked for the enjoyment of it.
