Encourage local consumption is one

(By the way, in case you don't know, I'm an American living in the UK). There are endless programs and events here featuring local businesses of all types, particularly small producers. Encouraging the support of local producers is considered part of their programs to reduce energy consumption and good hutrition. They also have grants for things like wind turbines for energy. There are set-up grants for new graduates. Local councils sponsor low-cost or free courses on how to start a business and all kinds of other issues, including employee development courses. All businesses here seem to encourage their employees to get further education and skills, especially in terms of making time for them in the work schedules

First forget your age...

Don't use it as a hinderance and stop waving it like a banner.
Be the way you were at 25. I kid you not. Look in the mirror and say, I'm talented..if no one else can see it, its their loss!
Then you find what you want to do. Don't pack it in. Don't have a child because they tell ya having one after 35 is crap. Many women have them until 48 now and many are fine and healthy. Don't crochet, you're not bloody granma moses..
..unless crocheting is your hobby and you can sell your wares on e-bay or at rummage sales, farmers markets or bazarrs. Bingo, small business.
