Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.' –  Winston Churchill

Our Story

From Overqualified to Unstoppable: Turning Ageism into Opportunity

A harsh reality awaits job seekers over 50. Despite my extensive experience, at age 65, I was dismissed from a job screening process because I was "overqualified." This disguised age discrimination was disheartening, but my wife, knowing my indomitable spirit, assured me we would find a better solution. Drawing on my creativity and entrepreneurial background, I once again chose entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship offers a powerful solution by providing financial independence and security. It allows seniors to use their skills and experience to create new income streams and build businesses that support them, all while achieving personal fulfillment.

Starting a business is inherently challenging, especially for seniors. They often face limited access to capital, a lack of modern business skills, and health limitations. Recognizing these challenges, I founded Farout to provide a supportive network for senior entrepreneurs. Our mission is to inspire and empower seniors to turn their experience into successful ventures. We provide resources, mentorship, and a community that believes age should never be a barrier to success.

There are hundreds of success stories of older entrepreneurs. Take Bernie Rothrock, who retired after 30 years of teaching to build Maximus & Penelope, an online store selling alpaca wool socks. Or Colleen and Jim Seiler, who started Kushley, a line of organic consumer products to eliminate smoke odors. Or think of 86-year-old Nonna Nerina, founder of Nonna Live, who teaches cooking classes over the Internet. These stories are a testament to the transformative power of entrepreneurship.

Join us. Let's turn ageism into empowerment and challenges into opportunities for growth, financial stability, and a sense of accomplishment. Together, we can make a lasting difference in the world.
