Starting a Business and Perceiving an Opportunity You want to start a business and perceive an opportunity in serving the rapidly growing segment of the US population over 50. The service you create must appeal to aging baby boomers 50 years old or older who are still at work (not yet retired) in professional or high-level corporate careers.
They work an average of 60 to 80 hours per week and make a minimum $100,000 per year. They like to look good, be social, and stay healthy. Time is a big issue for them. The rules for your business idea are as follows: any idea is acceptable at this stage; nothing should be ruled out as silly, impractical, or even antisocial; also, improvements on existing services can be considered. Describe in detail your best business idea for this customer set. Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas, and which clearly communicates the required message to your audience. Organize your response in a clear and logical manner as appropriate for the genre of writing. Use well-structured sentences, audience-appropriate language, and correct conventions of standard American English.
