Why it’s never too late to start a business, with Suzanne Noble


Suzanne Noble had enjoyed a successful and varied career which included PR for big entertainment brands, founding a TV company, creating a baby sling company and launching money and time saving app Frugl.

Then, age 50, attempting to join the London technology start up industry Suzanne very quickly realised she was the oldest person doing so. She also found there was very little support for her, which led to co-founding Advantages of Age. The objective of Advantages of Age is to challenge the media narrative around ageing.

Suzanne believes it is never too late to start a business if you have the right attitude.

Through a combination of social events, a Business Academy for those over 50 and a popular Facebook page, Suzanne has worked to create a support network to help people over 50 get the confidence and knowledge to have further success in their careers and lives.

She shares examples of clients who’ve taken their experience to build a new working life in retirement and tips on how you could do the same.

Here’s my fascinating discussion with Suzanne Noble, in episode 010 of The Retirement Café Podcast.
