You’ve read the headlines that scream about how the Internet economy is quickly reaching $4 trillion. And you’ve endured the cable news cycling through storylines of Internet powerhouses such as Amazon, Google and Facebook. Maybe it’s time for you to become an Internet entrepreneur yourself in midlife.
“I’ve started more than a dozen businesses in my life, and I’ve also kept up with the technology,” says Jay Whitehead, the 58-year-old CEO of LeagueNetwork.com, a New Jersey-based youth sports-themed enterprise. “And I can tell you that Internet technology will be the least of your problems.”
With a computer, you can establish a small- or medium-sized enterprise in as little as half a day. And you don’t need an ounce of web development skills.

Finally, there is the option of buying an existing online site or store. A plethora of opportunities is available on online business marketplaces such as Flippa.com.
You can either buy a business on your own or hire a broker to facilitate the process. If you’re looking for a website broker, consider Digital Acquisitions or FE International.
“These guys buy and sell websites for a living and know what to look out for,” says Dustin Montgomery, a digital marketer for Shippers Supplies.
Chances are, if it’s for sale it needs improving. But with the right skills and know-how, you might be able to turn it around and make it into a viable business.
