An idea came up for retired SilverHairs members

Last week I was in Singapore.  I visited an ex-colleaque of mine, and I visited his office. Sat down and chatted with him.  Chatting through, I noticed on his table were hundreds of business cards, messily placed in front of his computer screen.  He is a Sales Director, has no personal secretary, and has to manage his name cards , and keying them in into his Microsoft Outlook contacts.  At the same time, he has one of the latest Samsung S4. He complains he has no time to enter the contract details, but will likely do so before the end of the year.

If someone, contracted through an external company), can do so for the entire company, with 10 executives, can input the business cards into a file, and after finishing, the executive can download the contacts into his smartphone or desktop, the executives will be very happy with this part of the job.  That someone can charge the company a fee.  He can also work together as a group.  This can also be a retirement part time business for some SilverHairsClub members.

We have to continuously think of work for ourselves, to make some money and to keep our fingers nimble and our brains vibrating.

What do you think?  Can this work? and how can we do this business for retirees.
We will get to know more working people, and perhaps get leads and tips.  There are hundreds of companies out there with similar issues.

You know I love ideas, and you too can be a part of it.

  1. Hi Paul,

    You are techy indeed. For me, I enter all my contacts immediately. It’s just there are so many executives who fail to enter their business cards into their address book immediately. This might be any area for interested small retirement business. Will try the cam card app.

    Thank you.
