You have a lifetime of experience in whatever you did before you retired. You know what works, how to perform your job better and make mistakes. Now, is the time to consider helping companies teach their employees and improve their procedures.
Here are some ideas to consider before starting your own consulting retirement business:

  •   Do you have special expertise? Licenses? Certifications?
  •   Can you plan and set goals?
  •   Can you network and like marketing new ideas?
  •   Do you have the experience in your field?

Here are some examples of the types of consulting that would be ideal for a consulting retirement business.

  • Accounting – No matter how large or small, companies need someone to do the books. You can do it all or specialize only in a niche like accounts receivable collections, accounts payable, analysis, cash flow, or payroll for example.
  • Advertising – Can you help plan a good strategic campaign for other companies?
  • Communication – Businesses need people who can write a business plan, compose a report, and write marketing copy or edit.
  • Computer – If you understand computers, you could manage networks; install new programs, train employees on software, and fix problems.
  • Executive search – If you have good contacts in your field, you could help your friends find a new position without jeopardizing their old one.
  • Expertise – Could you help a business turn-around and become profitable? What are some of the issues in your field that companies are facing and you know how to solve?
  • Gardening – Offices, factories, and stores are now concerned more about how their premises look. You could become their interior / exterior gardener (subcontract the actual work).
  • Grants – Non-profits need help in writing grants and applying for government funds. Many corporations do not bid on government projects because they have no one to manage the process.
  • Information Technology – You could help companies make wise computer hardware and software buying decisions
  • Inventory – Show companies how to manage and control their inventory
  • Loss control – Teach them how to prevent thefts and spoilage
