Common Ageism Myths as an Entrepreneur


As an entrepreneur and author in her seventies, I wear many tuques (the Canadian version of a winter hat)!

Probably it would be hard but not impossible to get a job outside of the home. An interesting and kind young chiropractor has expressed interest in hiring me on a part-time basis, as suggested, as a sort of nurse to see patients to his office, clean up, and other tasks different from my usual life. He asked me to keep in touch and if I’m not being hornswaggled by this young fellow, then perhaps in the fall a situation might arise.

Good health and fitness rewards me for living a healthy life, as well as genes from my octagenarian mother who died in 2006 at 91.

With the professor’s permission, I’m going to include a link to a groundbreaking research study on ageism in future posts.

My talented graphic designer, Jennifer Johnson of JennJ Designs, provided a few outstanding ads for my transcription business, which runs hand in hand with writing books for a living.

If you’re a professor or graduate student on a tight budget, there are special rates available at Kenna McKinnon & Associates, a Canadian and worldwide transcription company. Initially, we were strictly medical transcriptionists. We love doctors, dentists, and nurses, and all health personnel!
