San Diego, California - Older Americans are starting up new businesses in greater numbers than ever before, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.  They have a lifetime of on-the-job experience and, at last, they are ready to put it all to work for themselves.

During their working lives they developed important business contacts.  They have had successes and failures and learned from them.  And, in many cases, they have the wherewithal, in the form of savings and the homes they own, to underwrite their entrepreneurial endeavors.

Indeed, they do it principally for the money, but they do it also for the fulfillment of building their new businesses-businesses that are more often than not successful.
