Ageism has made it difficult for me to get a job in my industry, but my family prefers I get a job. I have enough money to survive for 12 months without work. What advice would you give?
Weird advice this.... But I would write down a list of all the things you stand against in your industry.
Then I would stand for the opposite as an industry consultant or build a full service solution that solves that problem and sell it back to the industry.
If you are over the industry for those reasons, then I have no doubt that others in that industry are having the same massive problems.
Wherever there are problems to solve, entrepreneurs thrive.
Choose which problems you want to solve and who you want to serve :)
