A record number of Baby Boomers are currently reaching retirement age in the UK. As this generation leaves work, their skills and talents could be lost, if it wasn’t for The Amazings – an online market place where Britain’s post-retirement Baby Boomers can share their skills.
Similar to a dating site, users can create a profile detailing their talents – from cooking Hungarian food and flower arranging to joinery and alternative medicine. Once listed, users can charge other users for one-to-one tutoring, or organise evening classes for a fee.
Despite reaching retirement age, Baby Boomers account for 70% of all disposable income in the US. Brands, take note – they still have a lot to give!
