Who is Charlie Poznek?
Funny, I ask myself the same question every day.
What I’ve come up with:
I’m a guy. Just a guy. I have no rags to riches story to share with you. I didn’t overcome great adversity to be here writing this. I’m just a guy who leads a reasonably good life. The problem? I want to lead an unreasonably spectacular life.
Living an unreasonably spectacular life means I can…
Achieve financial freedom
For me, financial freedom means being able to do what I want (a long list), whenever I want, while living from the income of my investments and never having to worry about generating new income – ever.
Enjoy time flexibility
I believe “time freedom” is a misnomer. I want to do work that allows me the flexibility to create my day the way I want. This includes working out at the gym and going to yoga class during the “work day”.
I believe that all of us have a creative itch that could use a good scratching from time to time. When I don’t scratch that itch, I get cranky.
This is a really important part of this business for me. I firmly believe in helping others who are trying to help themselves. That’s why I started The Boomer Business Owner.
Scrap the suit and tie
Need I say more?
I found it difficult to live a spectacular life while working for someone else. For the better part of 20 years, I worked in the hedge fund industry and wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. I met some great people who remain friends to this day, and I met some really smart people. The problem was that I was helping build someone else’s dream (as the saying goes, if you’re not building your dream, someone else will happily hire you to help build theirs).
In looking at ways to create my spectacular life, I noticed a lot of people (often in their 20’s and 30’s) living the kind of life I wanted to live. A common factor seemed to be they engaged in some form of online commerce by selling a product, service or information.
I began investigating ways I could build an online business while continuing to work in the hedge fund industry.
In a matter of a few years, I transitioned from working for someone else to creating strong online presences for my various business ventures. I quickly learned what a powerful tool an online business can be in creating a spectacular life.
I enjoyed success in the development and sale of two fitness websites, including HealthAndFitnessAdvice.com and PersonalTrainerCoach.com. Another great online success I’ve enjoyed is creating an Ebay store with over 2,000 positive reviews (and not one negative review!)
Don’t get the wrong idea I am not a “tech person.” As a boomer, I know what it’s like to be intimidated by technology. I’m here to tell you that if I can build and run an online business, anyone can do it. Even if sending email is about as complicated as you get on the computer, I can show you how to start and run your own online business with little to no technical experience. I invested a lot of time and money to learn how to be successful in an online business, and I want to help other boomers do the same. The current result of that desire is TheBoomerBusinessOwner.com (and our podcast The Boomer Business Owner with Charlie Poznek).
My Vision for The Boomer Business Owner is to provide:
