If you have been laid off at 50, you are probably wondering what your options are at this point. The fact is, fewer companies are going to be willing to take a chance on you. But that doesn't mean you don't have options.
Have you considered owning and operating an executive coaching franchise? Although today's economy may not seem like the ideal time to open a business of your own, it's actually a great time to open a franchise of this type.

At this stage of your life, you may not be ready to take a huge risk. You need your next step to be a safe and secure way to provide for your family. Franchise ownership offers the benefits of business ownership without as much fear of failure.

Being laid off at 50 doesn't have to be a disaster. It could in fact be the beginning of an entirely new and exciting phase of life.
