Connect with Jean Kuhn: Running your business is no different than running your family. You need a daily plan or everything goes to hell. I became a mom and an entrepreneur at the exact same time, April 29, 1985, at 8:52 p.m. The moment they put that first baby in my arms I knew I was not going back to a J-O-B I hated, so I just started a business. When I gave my notice to the company I worked for, they offered to put a computer in my house (in 1985 no one had home computers), make me an independent contract, increase my pay, put a computer in our home, and let me work from home. I was one...

In Today’s Kick Ass Boomers Solo Episode,  We will be talking about downsizing. Downsizing is definitely not a favorite topic of boomers, but it is something most of us will have to do at some point. Before putting a house on the market, it is important to get rid of as much stuff as possible.  I decided to rent a pod so I could start packing and have a place to put all of the boxes. Since we are moving to Florida to a much smaller house, most of our furniture will have to be donated or sold on consignment. Most the have kids today do not want their parents stuff. Except for maybe some very special items, if it is old, even if it is in good condition can also be difficult to sell furniture because there is a glut of boomers selling furniture. So if you are thinking about downsizing, think about what you can get rid of and start packing your house!
