An Overlooked Population

Florence has a large, happy retirement community. Most people think that retirement means the end of work, but that's a myth! A 2014 Merrill Lynch study revealed that 7 in 10 pre-retirees say they WANT to work after they retire. Florence's post-retirement "returnment" community is ready and waiting – they're highly educated, extremely experienced, and could be an excellent part-time addition to your business!
