Here's Help Online for Starting a Business


Since 2012, AARP Wisconsin and the U.S. Small Business Administration have worked together to provide mentoring and practical advice to more than 305,000 budding entrepreneurs across the state.

In June, the two organizations hosted training events in Wausau and Milwaukee for people age 50-plus who want to start or grow a new business. Now, much of the information presented in the training is available online.

“Many Wisconsinites become encore entrepreneurs as a way to generate income and build financial security,” said Sam Wilson, AARP state director. “These resources can help them turn a hobby or passion into a paycheck.”
